The One Where Brian is a Dummy

Buckle up, because you are now entering the DOOM TOMB.  After an odd and menacing introduction, things calm down a bit and the LaBenne men talk about how dumb Brian is (on a couple occasions,) participate in a Neil Young Showdown, Luke gets spooked out by a song and Brian’s new catchphrase is actually somewhat successful with Luke this time!  It’s a decidedly goofy episode for the ages.  So sit back, relax and get ready to hear Best Song Ever.

Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne will be bringing 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.

LA’s Francisco The Man is excited to announce the release of their debut album, Loose Ends, out October 27 on Fat Possum/Small Plates Records.  It took roughly seven years, a teenage instrumental rock band, a debut EP, additions and subtractions, a roller rink and a near death experience to arrive at Francisco The Man. Following a two-year hiatus beginning in 2008, the band relocated from Riverside to Los Angeles, CA, bringing along a new addition, guitarist Brock Woolsey. With the help of Small Plates Records, they released two 7″s, In the Corners and Tiger.

In celebration of this announcement, the band has released their second single “Big Ideas” over at Consquence of Sound, a song that “blends ominous vocal melodies with pummeling drums to capture a sense of restlessness.”
