    Woah! Look at 'em go!  Today we resurrect the Sad Moth Radio Network with a new series we like to call "The album grate debate except this time it's a song but usually it's going to be an album" or "Sad Moth Smackdown".  Normally, we'll debate the merits of two comparable albums, but in this one, we rundown the controversy over the Lana Del Rey/Radiohead beef.  They're fightin' alright, mostly about the similarities between Radiohead's Creep and Ms. Del Rey's song Get Free".  We also discuss  Radiohead's past legal issues over the similarity between Creep and the Hollies' Air that I Breathe.  We then argue over which one of these three songs is actually the best.  Who wins?  Listen on to find out!Here's some links to the songs discussed:Radiohead: CreepLana del Rey: Get FreeThe Hollies: The Air that I Breathe

    Sad Moth Radio Network in Conjunction with WNUR Rock Show -- Wisconsin Punk In The 80's


    We're starting something new on Sad Moth Music!  For those of you who don't know (some of you), and for those of you who don't care (all of you) I (sadmothnoah) have a radio show.  If i do a good one, I'll post in on here for your low-quality-audio listening pleasure. This week, SadMoth Noah plays all the hits from the state that's better than the one he lives in now, that's for sure.  Originally broadcast in front of a live studio audience on WNUR FM Evanston Chicago.Once again I apologize for the bad audio quality.  I think there's a way to get better quality but I'm not sure how to do it.  Maybe I should figure that out. Or not.
