The One With All the Feels

On this episode: Dear Cousins Luke and Brian are back after a week off living the #beachlife and they talk about how ambient music can heal people, deliver the spoils of the Cuzzo Battle of 2017, #cuzzobattles, they dive into how bands replace “w”s in their names with “v”‘s like Chvrches #twerkchurch, Luke will not stop making up stupid hashtags, both cousins dole out their catchphrase stamps of approval two times in a row each (unprecedented!) Luke goes on record and states that he likes interesting music, they play their first song from a Broadway musical and talk about anxiety, depression, Zoloft, mental illness stigma and open up about their own struggles and personal stories all while playing eight of the 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.
