Now Hear This
Hello ... HELLO again! Holy smokes folks, we're riding the new wave with The Cars' 1984 album Heartbeat City. Grab your skinny ties, Fairlight CMI synthesizers, headless Steinberger bass guitars, and best impressions of Ric Ocasek and let's fly. Wait, no ... drive. Paul and Ryan are both big fans of The Cars and this LP represents six months of Ric, Benjamin, Elliot, Greg, and David's painstaking production guided by legend Mutt Lange which ultimately resulted in a sparkling pop masterpiece. If you like big warm synth pads, carefully crafted bass guitar riffs, tuned and toned muscular drumming, burning acrobatic electric guitar solos, and two nearly indistinguishable but powerful lead singers singing postmodern angular lyrics that paint portraits in your mind ... HELLO AGAIN! Now hear this: "Hello Again," "Drive," "You Might Think," and "Magic."

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.
