Episode 34 – The Good Old Days with Joe

In this episode, we welcome our guest and original member of The Lake, Joe Metcalf, to the show and we spend a while reminiscing about the good old days when we were first starting The Lake as well as a bunch of other random topics.  You’ll just have to hear for yourself!  Enjoy!

Episode 33 – Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses

After some unexpected time off, we’re back with a new episode where… you guessed it… we cover an album from 14 years ago!  Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses is the first full-length album from Atreyu and one that we both admire greatly.

It seems like there were so audio issues with this episode (go figure) so please forgive any weirdness in that department.  Otherwise, enjoy!

Episode 31 – The Deconstruction of Rap

In this latest episode we take a bit of a detour from our usual content and discuss a video that attempts to deconstruct the complexities of rap so that even the most lay of lay persons can understand and appreciate the art form.  Was it a success?  Do we think it was successful?  Guess you’ll just have to listen and find out.  Although, I think most of you can probably make a pretty accurate guess.

Episode 30 – A Sceptic’s Universe

After a bit of downtime, we’re back in action and have quite the unique album to review for our 30th episode.  In this installment, we review A Sceptic’s Universe by the Norweigan progressive, technical, fast, melodic and all around just kinda crazy group of fellers, Spiral Architect.  As per usual we also get into other shenanigans along the way.

Episode 27 – So Much For The Afterglow

In this episode we’re a little all over the place, but ultimately settle on discussing Everclear’s 3rd album So Much For The Afterglow.  We also talk about why Alex can’t get into Pink Floyd, our new musical adventures as well as a story about fish tacos.

For our listener who may be sensitive to this sort of thing, there’s a small bit of a swearing in this episode, so just be aware.
