Episode 28- Rap Covers with guest Adrian Quesada of Brownout

We’re joined by the talented Adrian Quesada of the awesome band Brownout to discuss their new album of Public Enemy covers, Fear of a Brown Planet. We discuss how hard it is to mimic hip-hop production with live instruments, being intimidated by the immensity of the Bomb Squad’s sound, and growing up in hip-hop culture. In the first segment the guys recommend rap covers and talk about Cat Power’s surprisingly large feet.

Episode 27- Summer Madness

Recorded in an undisclosed location in sunny San Jose on a scorcher of a day, this week we ruminate on summer and summer jams and why hip-hop’s major releases tend to drop in the summer time. Of course we talk about music, the GOOD Music album roll-out issues and you have to stick around for Demone’s thoughts on the issues surrounding the new Nas album toward the end.
