🎙 From the podcast archive
The Auteurs - Now I'm a Cowboy
The lead track and single, Lenny Valentino, gets rave reviews from both of us, but how does the rest of the not-so-similar album stack up? Released: 1994 | Label: Hutch Recordings | Producer: Luke Haines
Something for Kate - Elsewhere for 8 Minutes
On the surface, this band sounds like a slightly edgier Bush, but dig deeper and a more complex and interesting band appears. Released: 1997 | Label: Murmur | Producer: Brian Paulson
Morrissey - Your Arsenal
Your Arsenal by Morrissey is one of the highlights of a hit or miss solo career, but can it match or even exceed his worth with The Smiths? Released: 1992 | Label: HMV | Producer: Mick Ronson
Shiner - Lula Divina
Lots of tags are applied to Shiner - progressive, emo, alternative, math rock, space rock - but all that really matters is the songs. Released: 1997 | Label: DeSoto Records | Producer: Shiner
