Challenge Episode - The National & MF Doom
They’re back! It's been a minute, but Bravid finally made it through the school year and are fully vaxxed. That means they are back in the studio to avoid any more ZOOM burnout. Brandon and David each issued a challenge album for the other to listen to that they, for whatever reason, would not necessarily listen to in their own musical journies. David slaps Brandon with the gauntlet of MF Doom's lyrical genius and genre-responsive Mm...Food while Brandon puts a message of The National's Trouble Will Find Me in a bottle and tosses it into the ocean of David's stubbornness. That all makes sense right? Hear David fail to be articulate at any given moment and Bradon at his most professorial, shaming David with his brilliance. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

Mini-Episode: Christmas Voicemails!
Mini-Episode! Ebenezer Scrooge, The Grinch, and Brandon Murray. What do these three have in common? Listen to this bonus episode and find out what trap we lured you into with our requests for voicemails. We, for some reason, challenge your favs, least favs, and hot takes, further discouraging our listeners to call in and/or have an opinion other than our own. We also discuss such eternal Christmas topics as Bing Crosby's last words, fictional (?) music, and radio relevancy in 2020. How many listeners can we lose in one mini-episode? Anyway, we love those that called in, truly, and appreciate the dedication of our listenership from around the world. This podcast has been a boon to our 2020 and we look forward to discussing the remaining 990 albums with you in future episodes. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"Oh, baby please come home." - "A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector”
There are over 500 recorded versions of “White Christmas” out there. How do we determine which is the definitive version and how do we separate it from nostalgia...or does nostalgia need Christmas like Phil Spector needs The Wrecking Crew? Another album featuring the famed Wrecking Crew? Brandon and David employ the assistance of their better halves to answer these questions and offer their own favs/least favs and even some hot takes. Home Alone > Home Alone 2 is obvious, but detractors will not go quietly. Also, truly, honestly, is there any OTTO MVP on this album other than the illustrious Darlene Love? Listen to this episode while decorating your tree or drinking heavily to prep for a covid Christmas as Phil Spector rots in prison and ask yourself: Are we truly living in a marshmallow world? Album #37, “A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector”. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"I like the peace in the backseat" - Arcade Fire's "Funeral"
What is post-emo? or evolutionary hipsterdom? Bravid praises this melancholic debut album from the brightest thing to come out of Canada since the lightbulb (look it up). This group sure does punch above its weight: arena shows, network specials, touring with Bowie, Album of the Year recipients. Operatic sounds with coming-of-age themes make this a quintessential album for the 21st century. Hear Brandon gush like Bono over "Wake Up" and "see" David dig through his music archives and fawn over the product design of the CD version-- remember those? Tune in as we break down album #953 , Arcade Fire's "Funeral". --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"What's America without greed and glamour?" - A Tribe Called Quest's "The Low End Theory"
The Lovable Literature Teachers explore A Tribe Called Quest's anti-sophomore slump album, "The Low End Theory," in the latest episode of Late to the Party. Maybe inspired by the lyricism of Q-Tip, the duo gets abstract and grapples with the Busta problem while also celebrating Phife Dawg's rise. Needless to say, this episode is smooth like butter. #697 on the list of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"First, Best, Worst" - Concerts!
Remember when you didn't prepare anything for a presentation in school and maybe even forgot you had a presentation and decided you could probably wing it relying solely on personal experience and natural charisma and charm? Welcome to the first "bonus" episode of our podcast series: "First, Best, Worst." Brandon and David decided it would be great to reminisce and share with you all their first, best, and worst concert experiences. They have an absolute blast - and not just making jokes about "live shows". Do you have any memorable concert experiences? Leave us a voice message on our Anchor page and it could make it on one of our next episodes. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"Harry, you sure look beat." - Harry Nilsson's "Nilsson Schmilsson"
Bravid (as they are sometimes known) discuss Harry Nilsson's "Nilsson Schmilsson". David attempts and fails to compare Harry Nilsson to Mickey Rourke and Brandon gives a huge shout out to Bobby Keys. You know Bobby Keys, right? Don't we all know Bobby Keys? Am I the only one who doesn't know Bobby Keys? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"No regrets, Coyote." - Joni Mitchell's Hejira
In this episode, the twosome explores Joni Mitchell's 8th studio album, "Hejira". David reveals who he confused Joni Mitchell with for decades and Brandon waxes poetic about form and function. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message

"Where'd you park the car?"-- Radiohead's Kid A
In the inaugural episode, David and Brandon discuss Radiohead's seminal album Kid A along with such burning questions as "What's pop music?" and "Why's Thom Yorke so sad?" Join them as they break down album highlights and give you just enough to fake your way through any awkward, depressing(?) discussions about "important" album #906. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/latetotheparty1989/message
