BSE 48: They Might Be Giants, Sufjan Stevens, Superchunk, Ezra Furman and Many More

“That’s a Quality Slew”

On this episode of Best Song Ever: The dear cousins LaBenne discuss the recent elction results, Luke predicts what will be one of his favorite albums of 2018, the listeners finally get what they’ve been wanting: an in-depth conversation about men’s underwear, Luke talks about the musical icons that the members of Sunflower Beans look like and recounts the story of when Brian introduced him to Sufjan Stevens, they talk about Drake being emo, old MP3 players and each share guilty stories related to 9/11, 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.
