The One With Happy Haircut

On this episode: Luke brings us some hot podcasting news, Brian and Luke talk about one of the best rap albums of the year, Loki the trickster tricks our hosts into an episode of Thor Talk, Brian wishes Chris Hemsworth a happy haircut, there’s a lot of talk about 7-11, Luke introduces a brand new segment and our hosts play you quite possibly the strongest set of eight songs in the history of the show.

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.

The majority of Pets Hounds was recorded in late 2013 with engineer Mark Michalik who has worked often with Weiss in the past. It took another year before they had time to put the finishing touches on the album, adding vocals and guitar before mixing and mastering this winter. The end result is emblematic of the heights a band can reach when they just kick back, plug in, and go with what comes to them. No second guessing. Just fun.

With their feet planted on the distortion pedal and tongues placed firmly in cheek, the bespectacled Chicago trio Pet Symmetry will release their debut album Pets Hounds on May 19 via Asian Man Records. Pulling members from Dowsing, Kittyhawk, Mountains for Clouds, and Into It. Over It; Pet Symmetry is a gleefully spontaneous and unrestrained outlet for good friends Erik Czaja (Guitar), Marcus Nuccio (Drums), and Evan Weiss (Lead Vocals, Bass) to scratch their itchy power pop impulses.
