Episode 43: Details Emerge

The Casual Sound Podcast

A little something new bringing us into episode 43. In fact, you’ll probably find some new loves that are recent releases and those that we’re blowing the dust off of. This is all before we dive into a discussion around the exhausting and constantly relevant question about separating the artist from their art. I’ve gotta say, we present a lot of old information about old songs that I think we news to all of us. We don’t research our shows often… maybe we should. It’s more interesting.

  2. Cockney Rejects – Police Car
  3. Shame – One Rizla
  4. Dubstar – Not So Manic Now
  5. Tallies – Wound Up Tight

  11. Morrissey – Disappointed

Episode 42 – (Not) The Baggiest Podcast Episode Ever!

The Casual Sound Podcast

We went into this episode attempting to do the baggiest episode every – but it’s just too hard. It really is. Try it for yourself – coming up with the 12 baggiest songs is nearly impossible. That said, if you do it, send us the list. Hell, come on and host the episode. Do it.

This episode starts with a curveball. Paradise City? Not quite. It’s San Diego’s Stones N Roses. Legit.

Episode 40: It’s only bog roll but I like it

The Casual Sound Podcast

What does Jake Ryan sound like when he feels like his buttons are pushed? Also, there’s a disproportionate amount of new tunes here… which makes it an exceptional episode. Anyway, after this episode was over, Tyler (on Lenny’s recommendation) went and flipped Jake’s toilet paper to deliver in the opposite way of his preference. He texted within 2 hours to let us know that he caught it. True story.

Episode 38: The one where Joe Exotic is mentioned

The Casual Sound Podcast

It’s true – the Tiger King is mentioned, not for his recent re-sentencing of 21 years in prison for his attempted murder for hire of that bitch Carol Baskins (his words, not mine) but for his songs, that aren’t really his but remind me of The Mighty Lemon Drops (and not for their songwriting.)

The Casual Sound Podcast

In this episode we remind you to go download and listen to Episode 32 with Annemarie Duff. I’m going to remind you do it here in these show notes.

I also realize I don’t know how to describe the music played on this podcast. Are we a shoegaze podcast? Are we a brit-pop podcast? Are we a baggy podcast? Are we we an indie podcast? (Am I adding these terms to try and optimize for search engines?) Listen – I don’t know how to talk about this cornucopia of sounds that we deliver. If you have thoughts, let us know.

Episode 36: Old Stories For New Listeners

The Casual Sound Podcast

Out of the gate, sorry to bore the old listeners – we tend to repeat ourselves. Trying to do it less but when we discuss an album like Verve’s A Storm In Heaven, certain known opinions have to be shared. I promise, our self-awareness is growing and we’re trying to do it less, but, boy howdy, if you’re bored of hearing the same opinions over and over – thanks for listening over the years. Happy to be repetitious.

  1. Beach Baby – Limousine
  2. Tallies – No Dreams of Fayres
