BSE 60: Laura Veirs feat. Sufjan Stevens, Rejjie Snow, Bishop Nehru, Born Ruffians and Many More

“I Have the Best Duets”

On this episode of Best Song Ever: Luke starts the episode off with a startling revelation that he once went to a Sheryl Crow concert and Brian sneaks in Sheryl Crow lyrics throughout the rest of the episode.  Luke vacation shames Brian once again for some reason and the dear dear cousins talk about getting Al Gore and Ralph Nader mixed up, how Ishmael Butler gets great artists signed to Sub Pop and they dive into Greek Mythology with Luke telling the tale of Orion and Artemis.  There is a GAME OF THRONES SEASON 7 SPOILER WARNING as the War of Duets continues, Luke talks about silly nicknames people have given him and they talk about how lyrics of songs can come across as very creepy or very sweet depending on your perspective all while playing the eight best songs you’ll hear all week!

Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever. Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.
