    Episode 493: Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes' 'Heritage Of The Invisible II'

    Episode 493: Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes' 'Heritage Of The Invisible II'

    On Heritage of the Invisible II, Aquiles Navarro (trumpet) and Tcheser Holmes (percussion) – one half of the mighty Irreversible Entanglements – are celebrating their Afro-Carribbean heritage in ecstatic fashion. The resulting album is less a collection of songs than an organic rendering their culture, friendship, and seemingly telepathic level of communication the duo shares.  
    PLUS! Discover a collection of gorgeous new songs about transformation and peace with Jennifer Castle’s Monarch Season.

    Episode 492: Willie Nelson's 'Teatro' and New Music From Brothers Osborne

    Episode 492: Willie Nelson's 'Teatro' and New Music From Brothers Osborne

    In 1998 nobody would have expected that Willie Nelson would deliver what is arguably the best album of his career. But that is exactly what happened with the Daniel Lanois produced Teatro. We’re digging into what makes this essential classic one of the most perfect distillations of Nelson’s talent and how it reinvigorated the country legend’s already storied career
    PLUS! Country superstars Brothers Osborne are back with another dose of countrified rock n’ roll on their new album Skeletons.

    Episode 491: Dire Straits' 'Brothers In Arms' at 35 and New Music From Joachim Cooder

    Episode 491: Dire Straits' 'Brothers In Arms' at 35 and New Music From Joachim Cooder

    Thirty-five years ago, Brothers In Arms took over the airwaves with some pop perfection and a generation-defining video for the song “Money For Nothing.” But there is much more to this classic than money for nothing and chicks (or whatever gender norm you find yourself attracted to!) for free. After four albums of pub-shaking rock n’ roll, Mark Knopfler and crew hit upon Dire Straits perfect form and delivered a timeless collection of songs that transcended the band's previous work and cemented their legacy in music history. 
    PLUS! On Over That Road I’m Bound, multi-instrumentalist Joachim Cooder has reworked the songs of country progenitor Uncle Dave Macon and the result is a heady sonic adventure that you’re not going to want to miss out on.

Very Deep

And funny at the same time. I love how they don’t gloss over the albums. They bring it.

Delightfully informed and opinionated

Like all good music podcasts, Chunky Glasses is deeply informed about the music that the panelists discuss, but where they really excel is the simpatico among the participants and the obvious joy and rapport with which they engage the music, frequently putting music in the context of contempory social and political issues.
