Now Hear This
The season finale of Now Hear This has arrived, and with it a cranked-to-eleven episode! Brian and Simon from the Sodajerker podcast are on hand to guide us through This Is Spinal Tap. This epic album from the fake (but real) english (but American) hard rockers who want you to smell their respective glove is pound-for-pound one of the best rock-pastiche records in existence… and we’re deep-diving through it all! From satanic Christmas celebrations to the twee cups and cakes of P.G. Woodhouse, we hope you enjoy walking through this surprisingly epic album as much as we did. Now hear this: “Sex Farm,” “Big Bottom,” and “Cups and Cakes.”

What’s it all about? Simple and easy. We trade our favorite records and talk about one album per podcast for about an hour. We each picked six records for our first season’s twelve episodes. In every episode, imagine one guy is the “expert” (note: we are not experts) and the other guy is the rookie. We swap roles throughout the season. We walk through the history of the albums, run through the track lists, and attempt to turn each other – and YOU, the listener – on to new music. Mostly, we listen and laugh. You may too. The point of this show is to have fun talking about music with your two new best friends Paul and Ryan. You’ll notice that if you listen, then it’s gonna be that easy. Please join us in conversation, discover something new, and now hear this.
