BSE 32: Francis and the Lights feat. Chance the Rapper, alt-J, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Iron & Wine and Many More

The One With Nice Songs and Politics

On this episode: Brian starts the episode by giving Luke an update on his butt for some reason, the dear cousins get into some deep topics touching on the Philando Castile verdict, the forgotten America, Art and its impact on empathy and the Patriarchal system of power currently in place worldwide, they also touch on pool parties, Rammstein and how much they disagree about Bon Iver (again). 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.
