Things are not always what they seem. Case in point: Even though there are approximately seven bajillion new albums, singles and videos out today, it’s actually kind of a slow day — at least in terms of music news.
So world’s greatest publicist Eric Alper and I decided to spend a few minutes talking about our favourite albums of the year so far — which is easier said than done when you blast through as much music as he and I do. Join us as we chat about some of the discs and box sets that stood out from the pack, speculate about Robert Pollard’s songwriting secret, attempt to be diplomatic about Van Morrison and try to pick the best french fry at McDonald’s. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know. Just as it seems.
