From the Cut-Out Bin to the Lumber Yard

One of our favorite bands today: Louisville, Kentucky’s My Morning Jacket.

Vinyl, vinyl, vinyl. Okay, so there’s a Kansas album as the featured graphic on the homepage. Don’t judge.

We cover a lot of territory in this discussion follow-up as Maya Kroth, Owen Salerno and Garett Michaels again join Tommy Hough to discuss record “cut-outs,” the lost art of album artwork in the MP3 era, the dressing habits of My Morning Jacket fans, and the geography of Seattle-area record stores.

Garett also inadvertently calls out Tommy’s age (well, nearly), Tommy inadvertently compares Pearl Jam to Grand Funk Railroad, Maya reveals her feeling about IPAs, and the triumvirate of unjustly “missed” and unfairly overlooked late 90s albums is revealed. All this, and a Marshall Tucker Band moustache reference.

Late 1990s Album Gems:
Wilco – Summerteeth (1999)
Flaming Lips – The Soft Bulletin (1999)
Built to Spill – Perfect from Now On (1997)

Beers Enjoyed:
West Coast Green Flash IPA
Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA

Built to Spill’s Perfect from Now On: one of the more underappreciated albums of the 90s.

Vinyl. You can smell it from here, can’t you?

    The sinister thing about the 80’s was the drums. Everyone complains about too many synthesizers in the 80’s but the real problem was inappropriate drum sounds. Rock records with fake drums sound so of the era and so horrible. Exhibit A: Learning to Crawl. I’ve got no issue with synthetic percussion on the right record, but this was the wrong record.
