For Episode 81, we review Beach House’s Bloom, The Shins’ Port of Morrow, and Gossip’s (not THE Gossip, as I’ve been told) A Joyful Noise. We’ve also started a new segment called Corg-holin’ with Billy. Yes, it’s a bit immature, but so much fun. We’ve done a lot to castigate King Billy over the years, so it should come as no surprise that we’ve now dedicated some of our podcast to talking about the fun things William Patrick Corgan has to say about life. With a new Smashing Pumpkins album out, stay tuned for some crazy shit.

When I rounded up my good friends to do this nearly four years ago, it started as a crazy, exciting idea that was born out of my vanity. I thought my friends and I had great conversations about music. I thought we were good enough to put it out there for people to listen to. I had no idea how to do a podcast or make it work. Unsurprisingly, we stumbled through a few podcasts before we really knew what we were doing. We were a bi-weekly podcast that lasted somewhere around an hour. We wanted people outside our circle to listen to it, but other than that, we had little ambition for it to be anything more. It was a platform for us to get together and talk shit about music. That was it, really.
