Doolittle and Cats Deep Dive (Bob from Shi)
We welcome Bob from Lousville stoner metal dudes Shi to talk about their new album, recording at the Church of Wax, and a few other things before the pod devolves into madness because of a strange take on Doolittle.

We'll Do It Later
The line between podcast and group therapy continues to blur as we discuss how procrastination affects our creative process, and why we put so much work into things that could be ultimately meaningless. Not nearly as serious as it sounds. Plus recommendations and other fun stuff!

Big Album Energy
It's annoying when bands announce they're working on an album and then you have to wait a year until you hear it. But most bands don't have a podcast where they can document writing/recording a full length. So we're doing exactly that, announcing a concept for our first LP that will be taking up much of our 2020. We think we have a very cool idea for it but for more details you have to listen you dingus!

We'll Do It Live
We're back! We're talking about the thought process that goes behind playing shows. At what point is a performance not genuine? How much should you keep the audience in mind? What do we find entertaining in other live bands? All this, suggestions, and more!
39 minutes | Oct 2, 2019
We're doing a deep dive on the first song on Inevitable Pleasures, Nostalgia/Nausea. We touch on some songs not working great in a live setting, how authentic your art should be to who you are on a day to day basis, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the motherfucking Hibachi Buffet on Dixie Highway. Go the the Great Escape!

GOOD VS GREAT
Expectations vs reality when you start a band. What makes a good song a great song. Taylor Swift. Ceremony. Johnny Cash. Poison The Well. The Weakerthans. Trav with the hottest take of all, that a great song should make you feel something. (??) All that and more on this week's Pleasure Pod!

The Foxery Exit Interview (Calvin Fackler Part 2)
Part 2 of hanging out with Calvin! We have never sat down as a group to talk about what it was like when he left The Foxery, the direction we were going in/went in, how we all felt, and we unpack all of that. This was a very cathartic episode and a conversation we've all always wanted to have.

Ol' Tasties With Calvin Fackler
There'd be no Pleasures without The Foxery, and there would be no Foxery without Calvin Fackler. This was the most fun episode yet with one of our dearest friends, and basically a snapshot of an hour in the van with us on tour.

Talkin' Comix with Ben Sears
We appreciate people who love to make art, and put in the work to make that art. Ben Sears is one of the best examples in Louisville of that. We talk about his time in all sorts of bands, such as Xerxes, Black God, Mountain Asleep, Prideswallower, August Moon. Then we talk about his current career making comic books, including the incredible Double+ series being released by Koyama Press. A super fun and inspiring conversation!

Wy'd Like to Hear It (Wy from Transgression part 2)
Part two of our two part talk with Wy from Transgression. This episode we get into how Wy got into music, her writing process, and a ton more. Unfortunately there was no hating on Hobo Johnson this episode.

Wy from Transgression part 1 (Tour Diary)
We're joined by Wy Lynn Rose, vocalist of hardcore band Transgression, and we go in on their recent tour. If you've never toured in a band, this hopefully captures the weird mix of monotony and excitement of tour that's unlike anything else. A special 2 hour(!!!) episode, so go check out Trangression's new EP, watch their music video, and settle in. Thanks to The Great Escape for making this possible! https://transgressionhc.bandcamp.com/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xKwnhsgNHwhttps://www.facebook.com/transgressionhc/

We're back with another song discussion episode! We go deep on Lost Teeth Dreams from Inevitable Pleasures. There's a lot of talk about dreams, if they mean anything, and one of the most awkward placements of the Great Escape ad yet. If you make it through this episode it's safe to say you're with us for the long haul.
44 minutes | Jul 30, 2019
We do a deep dive on our first single L'Illusion Des Sosies, and Trav joins us for the first time! A lesson for everyone, it's hard to discuss a song when you can't pronounce the name of it. We also talk about Mcdonald's McFlurry spoons, music videos, Cosgraves Delusion, schadenfreude, and all kinds of things we don't understand. Corey was snoring throughout the second half, I thought it was edited out and clearly wasn't, so let the soothing sounds of that lull you to sleep. It's unintentional ASMR. Thanks to the Great Escape for sponsoring this nonsense.

For somehow making it five episodes, we wanted to celebrate with a guest, and we couldn't think of anyone better than musician, educator, and community leader Jecorey Arthur aka 1200. We had a great conversation talking about the role of music, goals, pride in where you're from, Kanye, and so so much more. Check out everything he has going on at 1200llc.com! Thanks to The Great Escape for the sponsorship!

"Coldplay is really good"
Content vs context! If someone makes an amazing piece of art and no one gets it, is it still good? Maybe after spending half an hour with us you'll have an answer, maybe not! We somehow fit in coldplay, stone temple pilots, neil young, and pearl jam while talking about this. Hopefully those four bands in a blender in no way represent this band. We travel back to 1970 and talk about how great/not great the beatles are. Then when finally talk about pleasures and discuss how we start our songwriting process. Also please weigh in on if Happy Hollow by Cursive is a good record because it is. Thanks to The Great Escape for sponsoring this podcast!

'Not Every Show Can Be A Fest' Fest
If you aren't from Louisville this episode is probably weird! We get into the influence of the city on us, and if Louisville's ever-looming presence has an impact on what we do. We also shout-out our favorite Louisville bands and probably forget some we definitely should have talked about. Thanks to The Great Escape for sponsoring us!
