The idiots confront hard truths about transitional albums, and tell the tale of the time Annie Clark made Omaha weird. Covered: “Marrow,” “The Bed,” and “The Party.”
Somehow Van Halen keeps coming up, and is 100% relevant each time. Also, the idiots run into the first great St. Vincent song. Covered: “Actor Out of Work,” “Black Rainbow,” and “Laughing With a Mouth of Blood.”
Some unfortunate microphone problems can’t stop the idiots from exposing the truth about the first 3 songs on Actor. The truth is that they’re good. Songs: “The Strangers,” “Save Me From What I Want,” and “The Neighbors.”
Chad and Keith kick off Season 2 with an overview of St. Vincent and a wide focus on her first album, Marry Me. Also: a surprising amount of somehow-on-topic discussion of James Bond.
