Will and Colin are joined once again by Philip Cosores as well as BPM CEO Evan Kaloudis for the latest BPMfm. The crew runs down releases from DJ Koze, Thanksgiving, Phosphorescent, Wavves, Justin Timberlake, Lapalux, and Blue Hawaii. The guys also get into the distinctions between bands who ripoff the past versus bands who are merely influenced by it, music critic revisionist history, the “canon,” and more.

This week we’re joined by ex-BPMer and organic gardening expert Erik Burg to discuss music from Waxahatchee, Pete Swanson, Youth Lagoon, Planningtorock, Rhye, Shlohmo and more. The crew also somehow starts to dig into the exclusivity of blog culture and the New York City indie music scene.

The BPM podcast has been resurrected. This is BPMfm. BPMers Colin Joyce and Will Ryan sit down with We Listen For You’s Zach Hart to discuss albums from California X, Daniel Bachman, WIDOWER, Foxygen, and Pantha du Prince. Superchunk and the state of 90s influenced guitar rock comes up in there somewhere and, of course, the trio pick over the recent Chief Keef/Pitchfork controversy as well as who’s allowed to write about what music culture. A lot is said and we regret none of it!

Listen: St. Vincent plays Comedy Bang Bang (3 song set)

By Chase McMullen; May 2, 2012 at 11:44 AM 

Among the celebratory moments of Comedy Bang Bang’s 3rd year anniversary podcast, it goes without saying that the most interesting guest appearance was a mini performance from none other than Annie Clark. She performed three of her St. Vincent tracks, “Surgeon”, “Cruel”, and, of course, “Cheerleader”. Check all three out below.

BPMcast: Better Late than Never edition. Our special guest Matt joins the BPM squad to tackle last weeks glut of news including a fresh Lollapalooza line up, a new record from POP ETC (formally The Morning Benders), drama between Prodigy and Havoc of Mobb Deep, and a Justin Vernon hip-hop record.

Sadly, no music this week.

Podcast: BPMcast Episode #17

By Rob Hakimian; April 8, 2012 at 4:49 PM 

A strange episode this week as the majority of the crew couldn’t attend the recording, but stalwarts Erik Burg and Rob Hakimian were determined to put one out anyway. Starting off by discussing some small news stories this week, they then went on to talk about what they’d been listening to (which unfortunately somehow didn’t get recorded). Then, with the energy flagging a little, a plea was sent out on the Beats Per Minute twitter for people to join, and we got some interesting characters in on the act including BPMer and Aim To Misbehave podcaster Chris Bosman, Middle Class White Noise’s Sam Rutherford and Erik’s friend Jon. A lot of what was discussed will stay between the guys as it was a little NSFW and had to be removed, but there’s still plenty here to enjoy.
