Talking about Weezer: The band, the music and just how weird it all is.

    Episode 37: Rivers is Recording Alone at Home And is (Sometimes) Sad

    Episode 37: Rivers is Recording Alone at Home And is (Sometimes) Sad

    It’s episode NUMBER THIRTY SEVEN of Weezer Has Turned and Left Us Here. This week, Sara and Matt take on the first solo album by Rivers Cuomo: Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo. The collection of demos, rarities and absurdities came out in 2007. But is there enough in the collection to make a decent album on its own?

    It’s episode NUMBER THIRTY FIVE of Weezer Has Turned and Left Us Here. Sara and Matt travel back to 2002 to talk about an album that it seems most Weezer fans have forgotten: Maladroit.

A.K.A. All things Weezer has turned and left us here. Matt and Sarah are the perfect hosts to discuss what we all know in our hearts. .That Weezer is....ok?? Not bad?? Mediocre in a good way? There’s too many phrases that work. This podcast is a great dive into how this band has forged a career spanning two and a half decades, surviving all phases of popular music. Love the guest spots they occasionally have and revealing how A LOT of people have a Weezer story.

A delight from start to end!

I adore this podcast and recommend it to all my favorite folks. Still trying to get the Weezer Shitposting community to get into the pod because it's so great! As Sara mentioned on the most recent episode, I also realized that I don't know a lot (correct things) about Weezer, so I love learning more each week! Keep it Weezy, Matt and Sara!

Education in all things Weezer

I'm fimilar with the early Weezer catalog but know nothing of the later albums. This podcast has been a great introduction to the newer material. Especially as it seems Matt and Sara are hearing some of these songs for the first time as well. Their banter about all things other than Weezer is very entertaining and they have great chemistry. Highly recommended this podcast to Weezer fans, causal or hardcore.
