120: Last Dance with Tom Petty

Last month we lost one of the greatest songwriters and musicians of our time, and also one of maybe 7 men in popular culture who wasn't an absolute monster. We had this conversation weeks ago, tbh fam, but it was more important that we release some timely episodes about Halloween candy than honor a one-of-a-kind voice the likes of which we will never hear again. Rest in peace, Heartbreaker. Additionally, this week's beautiful episode artwork comes from the irreplaceable Aaron Alvarez of The Obscure Gentlemen.

Trick or treat, fam! We may never know for sure if real monsters are real. But we do know for a fact that songs about monsters exist. Because we listened to a whole bunch of them. And we're sharing some of our favorites with you, our fam. This episode is the first of a two-part Halloween 2017 SPOOK-TACULAR, stay tuned for what's sure to be next.

112: Going Solo with Murray Valeriano

This week we're joined by comedian, podcaster, writer, producer, and music listening guy Murray Valeriano! You might know him from his podcast storytelling on Rock Solid and Road Stories. You might know him from...other stuff. Anyway, we get together, eat leftover pizza and fresh baked cookies and talk about Murray's background and early engagement with music. After maybe 40 minutes we discuss the actual topic at hand, artists leaving their groups of origin and going solo.

111: Depression Songs

We've been having a lot of fun on our music podcast talking about songs and the meanings we give them. But there's something that's no joke and that's depression. This week, Yama returns from his days on the BBQ circuit to talk about songs that either tackle the subject of depression or evoke the state of mind. This episode is dedicated to all those who struggle with the noonday demon.

107: What the Apocalypse Sounds Like

With Yama on vacation touring the country's best BBQ spots, it feels a little bit like our world is ending here at 12FAP studios. So we invited two comfy friends to talk about something soothing: songs for the end of the world, or songs that sound like the Apocalypse itself. Many thanks to the gang from Plain Zero podcast for guesting, and we look forward to the upcoming merger between our shows!

106: Sax Song & Chill

Out of all the instruments of music, the saxophone has been called the sexiest by men with open shirts and abundant chest hair. This week we crack open a few bottles of grapefruit shandy (that's mostly beer with a dash of grapefruit juice, not 50/50 beer and grapefruit regardless of what you hear) and listen to some of the hottest slices of saxified pop music from the 80s to today.

103: Songs My Four Mothers Taught Me

If you forgot Mother's Day, send your mom this episode in lieu of an apology and flowers. In an instant you will be forgiven and no longer a disappointment in her eyes, because this week we're sharing songs our parents introduced us to. We're also practicing the English language's newest tongue twister: "Canadian collabo of Creep Catching crews."
