Ep 37: Curious Kendrick Hanging With A Couple Maroons
The title of this episode only refers to a small portion of the podcast, but made for a great visual so we went for it. We’re Low Lifes, we’re not here to feed the streets with facts and objective thoughts. We drag you down to our level. We spend half the podcast professing our love for the new Tribe albumThe post Ep 37: Curious Kendrick Hanging With A Couple Maroons appeared first on Limelight Low Lifes.

Episode 36: Dr. Fisherman & Mr. Brown
Ying & Yang. Heads & Tails. Divinity & Atrocity. This week at the Lighthouse…it’s all about the dualities. After a much cathartic rant a few weeks ago, and admittedly – further ranting during last weeks awards, the Low Lifes sit down to discuss two projects that while entirely different in concept and execution, both hit the highs we’ve been searching forThe post Episode 36: Dr. Fisherman & Mr. Brown appeared first on Limelight Low Lifes.

Ep 33: Songs with Limelight in the title
We had so much fun recording Episode 31: Songs with Low Life in the title, that we decided to do it again, except with Limelight in the title. Pretty simple concept, yes?

Ep 32: The Mixtape
Music is our topic and we discover fresh hatchlings on every episode. Often, said music is in the form of new albums but this week, we all showed up with singles. Enough singles to make a late summer mixtape … so … in a round about way … we’re back to an album. Our own, mixtape album.

Ep 31: Songs with Low Life in the title
Yep, the idea’s pretty simple. We found songs with Low Life in the title, from all genres. We’ve co-opted Low Lifes by Future ft. The Weeknd, but would we be able to find a new theme song? Simple, yet a fun episode. I know we certainly had fun recording it. Music in this Episode Low Life — Future ft.

Episode 28: Skepta / Vic Mensa / Flume Album Reviews
It was two thirds of the crew on the mic this episode but we put in three halves the amount of work. That statement makes no sense, but it seemed like a fun idea. Basically, we reviewed a lot of new music. There’s been a slew of projects coming out lately and we wanted to go through the best ofThe post Episode 28: Skepta / Vic Mensa / Flume Album Reviews appeared first on Limelight Low Lifes.

Episode 27: Miami Jesus
That’s right, we saw Jesus in concert! Well, the Miami Jesus, or, as he’s most commonly know, Breakbot. It was a dynamite show and we reminisce before getting into this episode’s reviews: the new Kaytranada and Chance the Rapper tapes. Finally, we finish out with a quick tribute to our very own, Gord Downie. Music in this episode Lemonade —The post Episode 27: Miami Jesus appeared first on Limelight Low Lifes.

Episode 26: Patch on the Back ft. Magz
This episode is a little different. It’s a solo effort by your boy, Yung Husk a.k.a The Silent Prince a.k.a the Colonel of the Cologne. To help me out, I brought on a good friend I met in college and asked her to bring five songs she enjoys so you can get to know her through her musical appetite.

Episode 24: Qualms & Quarrels
Can’t we all just get along? Communication is the key, so perhaps us talking about some of the bickering in the world of music will help solve the problems … We begin by discussing EXCLUSIVE barbershop gossip about two Canadian bands vying for a Juno.

Episode 23: Yo! MTV Chats
You can’t go forward without looking back every once in a while and in this episode, the Lowlifes do just that.

Episode 22: The Low Life of Pablo
Two albums. Two entirely different approaches. One was released with a coinciding fashion show, international film series and swept the internet with an over-whelming – venturing on annoying – social media presence; the other dropped the same week, garnering little attention aside from a few radio interviews. Is it a surprise one was an overthought mess and the other an minimalist yet cool?

Episode 21: Black to .Paak
It is with a heavy heart we recorded this episode, as days after recording our last podcast a true talent passed away. David Bowie, 69, tragically lost his battle with cancer on January 10th. As a final gift from the Starman to the world however, he released what would be his goodbye album just two days prior – Blackstar.
