Episode 103 – Your Pop Culture Has Been Hacked Edition – Neko Case, The Icarus Line, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde

So now we’re on to current music that’s been recently released! Unfortunately, due to technical problems with the recording, the first few minutes of the podcast are gone. So there’s a new intro and I tried to leave it off around where the discussion starts. The group discuss the merits of the new Neko Case album and Alex tries to convince me why I should like her music. Next, we discuss the return-to-form The Icarus Line and delve into Rachel’s squeamishness with the lead singer. All of us get a good dose of Arctic Monkey and wonder why we never had listened to them before. Lastly, we talk a little bit about the Lorde EP and what we hope to hear from her new, full-length album. Thanks for listening!
