The One About Floating

On this episode: the Dear Cousins LaBenne get right into a Thor Talk after Luke forces a Loki into the conversation and Brian shares an interesting story from Norse mythology, they get all floaty and talk about living that #puremichigan life as well as get into The Breakfast Club and Chariots of Fire, Brian reveals that although he’s a good American boy there are a couple things that make him tear up and he talks about his love of American Ninja Warrior, they get into a short discussion on politics and poverty 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.

“‘The Phage’ is essentially cabin fever, whether it be a cabin or a tour van that you’re trapped in for months.” Says singer/songwriter/guitarist William Keegan. “When things become funny for no reason and a little madness sets in, that’s when you start stealing organs with a teleportation ray. Just watch Star Trek Voyager.”
