    EP 15: The Smiths - Hatful of Hollow

    EP 15: The Smiths - Hatful of Hollow

    In this episode we talk about the Smiths compilation album Hatful Of Hollow. We talk about the Smiths in general and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    Does anyone actually read these show notes? I feel like I’m writing to myself. I use to write long emails to my boss. I suspected he wasn’t actually reading the whole thing, so I started to insert lyrics for songs in the middle of paragraphs to see if he would say something. He never did. So I knew he wasn’t reading all of my emails.

    Anyways, if you’ve made it this far check out Zee Avi’s self titled album. We talk about it on this episode. Got a great Morrsey cover on it.

    https://www.discogs.com/Zee-Avi-Zee-Avi/master/882351

    We also discover that Chris Smith is a supporter of the show! Thanks Chris that’s so cool! I hope you’re reading this.

Keep keeping it real!

At Last! I Feel Seen.

This might be the greatest podcast ever created for people like me who are way too opinionated about music but not afraid to laugh at the ridiculousness of it. I know the premise is to basically trash beloved records but honestly their discussion had me wanting to relisten to their objects of their scorn and appreciation. The podcast is like talking music with a friend you’ve known way too long.
