The One About Making Love

On this episode of Best Song Ever: the Dear LaBenne cousins get a visit from DJ Khaled,  Luke has some harsh words for the editor of Ghettoblaster Magazine, Brian tells a fun story about Tom Waits, Luke talks about his emotional reaction to Finding Dory and they have a couple conversations about mental illness.

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.

Little Comets is about to embark on another tour of the U.S. in support of their new full-length album Life Is Elsewhere, released last month via Dualtone Records. Life Is Elsewhere is the band’s second album but first to be released stateside. The band’s songs have gained acclaim in the U.S. already, with Details Magazine calling them a “Next Big Thing” and The New Yorker hailing them as “spunky guitar pop that features Afro-beats, complex percussive rhythms and catchy hooks.”
