Razorcake Podcast #570 with Kurt Morris

I’m impressed with how many good songs are on this podcast. I’m choosing the artists by the letters of the alphabet but I was able to find some tunes I really enjoy. The opener by Naked Raygun is a take on the sad state that we live in a society where women have to live in fear of men. The Oxbow track is amazing in its construction, as it’s the same lyrics but delivered slowed down in subsequent verses. I also dig the Napalm Death song from their split 7” with Converge. It’s a look at the tragedy in Bhopal, India (look it up). Oil Boom’s “Last Call for Milkshakes” is a burner of a tune, with lots of energy. If it doesn’t get you dancing, I don’t know what will. Osker has been a long-time favorite and served as a soundtrack to when I moved to Seattle years ago. Finally, the Owls song serves as an excellent send-off. It’s as though the band said, “Can we write a song that sounds like a perfect album closer?” and came up with “A Drop of Blood….” I hope amidst all of these tracks (as well as the others not mentioned here) you find something you enjoy. Thanks for listening!
