Another lo-fi cast. Hopefully my busted computer will be back in action next week. But on today’s podcast, Arika Dean sits down with the regular trio to discuss the potential for a new Broadcast album, new material from WU LYF, the closing of Altered Zones, and Trent Reznor’s epic 6-disc soundtrack for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. New albums from Amy Winehouse, ARMS, Sepalcure get discussed along with about a half-hour spent on Kate Bush’s fantastic new release, 50 Words For Snow. Also, “same which is” not “sandwiches.”
