    It's 2020! and it's bloody cold in the UK so lets warm everyone up with a particularly californian episode. This Month we'll be talking about the indie rock supergroup Boygenius and it's component members Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker & Lucy Dacus (plus various other projects they've been involved in such as Better Oblivion Community Centre, and then we'll be talking about California's greatest ever close part harmony mostly non surfing surk legends The Beach Boys! As usual we can never stay on topic for long so we'll also be talking about emotional moments while 35000 feet over Deutschland, The amusing tale of Mike Love's first Australian Orgy, and Hanging out in escape rooms with legendary 1970s L.A. based songwriters.

    We Dig Music - Super Mega Ultra Badass Christmas Best Of 2019 Extravaganza!

    23/12/2019 Duration: 01h37min

    It's the end of 2019 which has been an utterly fantastic year for music (possibly at the expense of everything else...) so as is traditional, here's our annual best of the year extravaganza! We count down our favourite 30 songs of the year, plus we discuss songs that didn't quite make it, our favourite gigs of the year and also music we've discovered this year that didn't come out in 2019. It's basically like Top Of The Pops but with way more music from the former USSR... To explain how the voting works, we each picked our 10 favourite songs of the year, then in secret ranked our own out of 10 and the remaining songs from the other two's selections out of 20 (so the highest possible score would be 50 points if all three of us were unanimous on our favourite song and the lowest possible score would be 3 points). Ian's wife Lydia distributed the lists to each of us and then Colin's wife Helen added all the points up and sealed them in envelopes so we didn't find out the order until we were recording and all t

    Series 3 is here! and we're starting it with a particularly European flavour! This month we'll be talking about the surprisingly melodic German Funeral Doom whale botherers Ahab and Scandinavian 80s pop legends A-Ha! As usual we can never stay on topic for long so we'll also be jabbering about overuse of Fairlight Synthesizers ruining original versions of amazing songs, Hasselhoff/Ocean confusion, and wondering why indie bands don't usually tend to write many elaborate epic concept albums.

    We're 2 years old (not literally, please don't close our Twitter account...) so in a break from our usual programming this month we have a VERY SPECIAL EPISODE for you all. It's a bit like our christmas/end of year episodes, but rather than being our favourite songs of the last year, this time we're going back in time for two full decades to the year 1999! To explain how the voting works, we each picked our 10 favourite songs of the year, then for each list we each ranked them 1-10 giving 10 points to our favourite and 1 to the one we liked least on each list. we also had a bonus point we could assign to one song on either of the other people's lists (So Colin could only assign the bonus point to a song on either Tracey or Ian's list). Colin's wife then added all the points up and we didn't find out the order until we were recording, so all the reactions you'll hear are genuine. Now admittedly, we are a little bit brutal to some of the songs on the list, but please remember that to be in the episode they h
