    Episode 33: The Allman Brothers Band's "The Allman Brothers Band"

    Six enlightened rogues out of Macon, Georgia birthed an entire genre simply by being their soul-powered selves. We have not come to testify, but we’re still hung up on the dream The Allman Brothers Band helped us see. By the end of this episode, you will be, too.

    TuneDig Radio: HM-2

    TuneDig Radio: HM-2

    Part two of exploring our very specific favorite ways to discover and enjoy new music contrasts sharply with sampling’s vastness. Instead, Cliff laser-focuses in on a world inside four small knobs all dialed to 10.

    The Boss HM-2 has spawned a prolific and diverse subculture, tied together by metal and hardcore artists’ quest for tones that differentiate and reflect the intensity of their material. If you love heavy music, you’ll love this playlist. If you don’t, we’re confident you’ll appreciate this headspace and its nuances.

    TuneDig Radio: Sampling

    TuneDig Radio: Sampling

    For this one, we prompted each other to build a playlist around a very specific favorite way to discover and enjoy new music.

    For Kyle, it’s sampling in hip-hop, a Rosetta Stone that endlessly unlocks interesting and obscure musical touchstones. The playlist lays out his journey of discovery through key samples that changed his life, and the episode dives into the mind of the crate digger and the value of that worldview in general.

    TuneDig Radio: Direct Action

    TuneDig Radio: Direct Action

    In this second of a pair of episodes responding to the recent uprisings, we translated what we’d learned from our introspection into a critical follow-up: direct action to make a difference. Join us as we walk through a soundtrack to help us plot, plan, strategize, organize, and mobilize.

    We dedicate this episode to the memory of John Lewis, who showed us again and again what’s possible when you take action and stand up for what’s right.

    TuneDig Radio: Introspection

    TuneDig Radio: Introspection

    The protests and unrest have had us wondering how to make meaning from this wild, inexplicable time in history — so like usual, we turned to songs. Out came two new TuneDig Radio playlists.

    The world already has plenty of protest playlists, so instead we tried to think more deeply about how best to process and live in the moment. This episode (part of a pair) is all about searching deep within and challenging yourself to grow.

Incredible critique of modern music

Stumbled upon this podcast looking for a review of Portishead. Wound up listening to the converge episode. This podcast is so effin good. These guys are really eclectic and insightful/ inciteful. They incited me to write this review and BEG them to do an episode on “Isis.”

Dig it

really dug the Zeppelin episode and learn something new every time I listen to these guys

Love it

Cliff and Kyle clearly put a lot of heart and soul into every episode, but it’s also never cheesy or rehearsed. I like that it just feels like a really good conversation with two people who love music as much as anyone I’ve ever met, and they’re always covering a wide variety of artists in ways that encourage me to give spins to albums I might not have otherwise considered.
