Our Favorite One-Album Wonders
This week, we talked about artists who only ever released one record, and how that contributes to their legacies. Why is it super normal for hardcore bands but taboo for popstars? Is quality>quantity always a good thing? Is Cardi B onto something? Stuff like that, and more.

Unlocked: Pop Punk Squad: The Neon Era
To quote Green Day, we were "on Holiday" this week, and therefore didn't record a new ep. But before we head into 2023, we wanted to give everyone access to the first installment of Eli and Miranda's Pop Punk Squad series, where they'll be diving into various eras, micro-trends and bands of the genre's past ~15 years. This one's on neon pop-punk. Happy new year!
