Hurley/Death To False Metal - Weezer

April 7, 2020

In this two-for-one episode, Weezee and Slammy try their first episode via ZOOM meeting, as the Coronavirus becomes more and more present in everyone's lives (recorded 3/29/20).  In this ep, the two discuss Weezer's Hurley AND Death To False Metal.  

Released just about two months apart, Hurley was Weezer's eighth studio release and DTFM was intended as a collection of B-sides and demos--but Rivers Cuomo himself deemed "Weezer's 9th studio album".  Whatever the case, they both have their merits, and make for an interesting juxtaposition for a couple of albums by the same band released so close together.

In this week's uncharacteristically straightforward episode, Weezee and Slammy B discuss Raditude--another criminally underrated Weezer offering.  Make sure to listen through (or skip to) the end where you can learn how to make Weezee take several pies to the face.  With toppings of your choice!

Red Album - Weezer

Red Album - Weezer

March 24, 2020

In this episode--releasing on Weezee's birthday--the boys talk about what might be Weezer's most experimental album: their "Red Album".  

This has to be Weezer's most eclectic mix of tunes up to this point--as ALL band members get songwriting credits on at least one song AND they all take lead vocal duties for those songs.  Produced in three sections--each with a different producer--this might prove to be Weezer's strangest album, but it might also push their boundaries more than any effort before or after.

In this episode, Weezee's sister joins the conversation to discuss the final Weezer album she ever purchased: Maladroit. The discussion over what Weezee calls "the forgotten Weezer album" is a lot like Maladroit itself: sometimes half-baked--but REALLY hot stuff when it gets going. Enjoy!
