After the jump, Nate Patrin takes us all on a journey to the early 80s, when funk was going rock, rock was going pop, and new wave was going berserk. The era is widely used as a cheap punchline, but secretly proves to be a fertile time for technological innovation, genre crossover, and -- above all -- jams.
After the jump, your friends Nate Patrin and Marty Brown finish up a deep dive into the bounty of music 2016 has already served up, including Anderson .Paak's Malibu; Future's Purple Reign & EVOL; Rihanna's ANTI; KING's We Are KING; Esperanza Spalding's Emily's D+Evolution; Ty Segall's Emotional Mugger; Savages' Adore Life; and other odds and ends.
After the break you can find the brand new #150th episode Sports Spectacular of Travis Bickle on the Riviera, the world's only movie podcast. With your hosts Tucker Stone, Morgan Jeske and Sean Witzke.
