Welcome to episode 57 of the Love That Album podcast, the first for 2014.

 I am joined by long time supporter but first time participant Will Smith of the wonderful Gentlemen’s Guite To Midnite Cinema podcast. We discuss albums by two songwriters who are still early into their careers. First up, we discuss, soul stylist Michael Kiwanuka’s “Home Again” (2012), then we chat about Mac Demarco’s album “2” (2013). Both artists definitely display their love of artists that have inspired them, but cleverly meld the music into something all their own. Kiwanuka’s album is a beautiful introspective look into faith and hope without hitting anyone over the head with his beliefs.  On the other hand, Demarco creates a sound that may appeal to fans of Ween. He’s got a healthy sense of humour, but as Will points out, there’s something dark hiding behind the Lynchian picket fences of his songs. Will and I look forward keenly to see what they will do next.

 Eric Reanimator returns for 2014 with his terrific Album I Love segment to discuss Janelle Monae’s concept album The Arch Android, based on Metropolis.

 NOTE: For the time being, Love That Album will be a monthly podcast. I have joined Tim Merrill and Wendi Freeman for a new monthly podcast about music related films called See Hear. I still get my dumb opinions out twice a month, but once per month for each podcast.

 You can download the podcast at iTunes by searching for “love that album”. You can stream or download it at “http://lovethatalbum.blogspot.com”.

 If you dig the show, I’d be ever so grateful for an iTunes review.

 Send me any feedback at rrrkitchen@yahoo.com.au (written or mp3 voicemail) or join the Facebook group at http://www.facebook.com/groups/lovethatalbum and start a conversation on any new songwriters you’re excited about.

Welcome to episode 1 of the monthly See Hear podcast (hopefully only temporarily utilising the Love That Album podcast RSS feed while I work out issues with iTunes on the separate feed). Join your hosts, Wendi Freeman, Tim Merrill and Maurice Bursztynski as they discuss music related films – narrative or documentary.

No gentle start for the team as they discuss the Todd Phillips documentary about notorious punk rock singer GG Allin. The film is not for the faint of heart (and our language may reflect the content discussed), but it is a fascinating look at a man who truly knew no boundaries in they way he lived his life. He is held in equal contempt and admiration by the public and ex-band members.

My huge thanks and admiration to Max Bursztynski for composing the show’s theme tune and designing the show logo.
