Does a singer-songwriter have to be good at singing? Do they have to be good at writing? Mary & Dave invite singer-songwriter Natalie Grace Alford over to discuss their favorites in the genre. We talk Todd Rundgren (and his "daughter"), St. Vincent, Margo Guryan, Darondo, Billy Bragg and Amanda Palmer. Also Dave won't stop bringing up Willie Nelson.
Mary and Dave put together a start of summer playlist, gab about Kanye and discuss the whole Bushwick Bill "shot in the eye" incident. New music from Maxo Kream and Drake, and a review of Willie Nelson's latest/maybe last album.
Dave hates live music, even though his first date with his wife Mary was a concert. Mary loves it so much, she is going to try to convince Dave otherwise. They put together a playlist that includes some of the best live songs of all time, as well as some new ones you might not know about. We also talk 420 Flops and Music News.
Battle of the bands this week, as we compare two albums about relationships gone awry: Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy, and Neil Young's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. Anthony Scardino, aka Professor Pizza stops by to break the tie. We also talk Kendrick Lamar's Pulitzter and the anniversary of Prince's death.
Today in Music, album review of Vacation in Hell by the Flatbush Zombies, Battle of the Songs and even a baby crying at one point. "Best episode yet" - critics.
Back from a three month break, Mary and Dave are joined by their infant daughter to talk ten rappers that owe their careers to Soundcloud. Including: Lil Pump, 6ix9ine, and 03 Greedo.
Days before the birth of our daughter Sophia we recorded an episode where we reflect on the year, what we're thankful for and then we talk shit on the movie Meth Storm. It's a really terrible documentary. Seriously, most episodes of Intervention are better.
Mary and Dave play the music of their childhood, including ICP, Los Camposinos!, TV on the Radio, and more. BTW, forgot to hit the mute button, so if you love bloopers, this ep has a few!
Josh & Sean from Comfort Zone come in and make a playlist with us that includes Kevin Abstract, Drake, ILoveMakkonen, and a lot more. Their ep is out now on Spotify and SoundCloud.
