The One About Gender Fluidity

On this episode: our dear cousins talk about some heavy topics including gender fluidity and perpetuating rape culture, they also cover the latest news of the NHL Playoffs and what’s going on in Survivor, Luke reaches out for help on a #gentlemansdilemma, Luke doles out his catchphrase stamp of approval with a quick “Lordy Lordy Barry Gordy” and Brian follows closely behind with his “Papa Likey,” Luke does some standup about Donald Trump and how #ladiesbeshoppin’, Brian explains how Canada works, Luke states he is rooting for the Hockeyton Teamsters to win the Stanley Cup and they play eight of the 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.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.

Caddywhompus are sharing their brilliant new album  Feathering A Nest in full today via Wondering Sound. After sharing the well-received singles “Stuck” and “Entitled” via Stereogum and Vice, fans can finally listen to the stunning album as intended, in its entirety. Wondering Sound described Caddywhompus’ sound offering, “start with feverish, math-y riffs, adding rollercoaster drumming and syncopated rhythms gradually, exploring the more perilous corners of experimental pop music,” before stating, “Feathering a Nest is Caddywhompus’ most textured and refined record to date, but the turbulence is what makes it so memorable.”
