The One With Dream Pop Dundee

On this episode: Brian wishes his wife a Happy 11th Year Wedding Anniversary and dedicates a cover of a classic love song to her, Luke decides to invent a new genre of music called Night-Terror Pop, the Dear LaBenne cousins discuss the universe, death and taxes as well as what songs they want play at their funerals, Luke quotes the great Dream Pop Dundee and Brian shouts out to himself for being on Sam Sanders NPR Podcast It’s Been a Minute also out today, 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.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.

Late last year, Destroyer released Poison Season—a treasure trove of mid-’70s Bowie-esque thumpers, string-laden laments and E Street horns—to universal acclaim, following it up with a mammoth 8-piece band tour around North America and Europe. Recorded in the same sessions as Poison Season, the song “My Mystery” was a huge favorite yet somehow felt like it didn’t quite fit on the album. On May 6, Merge Records will release “My Mystery” b/w “My Mystery (DJ johnedwardcollins@gmail.com remix)” digitally and on limited-edition vinyl.
