Part 2 of my conversation with guest Jay Breitling as we discuss our favorite music of the first half of the year. I've also got music from Johnny Foreigner, Soccer Mom and Protomartyr.

Show notes:

- Recorded at Clicky Clicky World HQ

- JB: Ava Luna does not fake the funk

- JK: Johnny Foreigner comes back with another excellent album

- They also dropped a surprise live album recently

- JB: Soccer Mom's full-length debut did not disappoint

- JK: Protomartyr has an interesting back story

- JB: Engineer Jeff Zeigler has worked on most great recent albums out of Philly

- Nothing's Guilty of Everything is exceedingly loud but pretty

- Wear earplugs, kids

- JK: Parquet Courts continues to refine their sound

- The Strokes were another band who came out to much acclaim

- Critical comparisons are often ill-informed

- JB: Perfect Pussy is female-fronted hardcore

- JK: Stephen Malkmus has had an interesting and rewarding solo career

- JK: Bob Mould keeps the rock vibe going

- JK: Afghan Whigs release first album in 16 years, don't miss a beat

- New Spoon album coming out

- JB: Looking forward to new records from Lubec, White Laces, Golden Gurls, Hush Now

- JK: New Mascis and Titus Andronicus due out soon

- Plenty of great stuff out there

 

Music:

Johnny Foreigner - Le Sigh

Soccer Mom - Orejas

Protomartyr - Come & See
