Van Halen Week continues. Today, we discuss the band’s second album, released in 1979. It sold millions and was still a bit of a commercial disappointment compared to the debut. But … “Dance the Night Away”!
Each January, our friend Tug Baker takes a break from new music and does a deep dive into the catalog of a couple of classic artists. Today, he calls in to discuss his experiences listening to Patti Smith.
It’s Jim’s turn to select choice cuts from January. He goes with “Concrete” by British post-punk band Shame and “Pirouette” by California indie rocker Jay Som. And Tug Baker calls in to talk about the new single from one of our favorites, Hop Along.
Patrick plays a couple of songs he discovered in January, by British post-punk band Shopping and California indie group Tune-Yards. And bonus – our friend Tug Baker joins by phone to discuss the new single by Baltimore’s Wye Oak.
