noun: catharsis; plural noun: catharses

the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions.
"music is a means of catharsis for them"


We've all been through times where we wanted to purge some evil spirits from our souls. We've all wanted to get things off of our chests from time to time. The artists on this week's list know from pain, and they just happened to have songwriting chops and a recording studio nearby. Host of the Love That Album podcast Maurice Bursztynski knows his catharsis, and he also happens to have killer taste in music. Ben and Maurice explore some albums that were a form of release for the artists involved. The evil spirits had to be vanquished, and in the best way possible - through honest, heartbreaking music. Come get cathartic with us.

The most recent episode of Love That Album featured ATTT host Ben and the Numbers Girl herself, Ms Shannon Hurley. We broke down Wilco's epic masterpiece "Summerteeth". Check it out:

Just when we thought the world couldn't get any lamer, 2020 had to come along. Some day we'll look back on this crapshow and laugh, but for now let's just get really dumb. Like dumb dumb. Pal O' The Pod and fellow admirer of delightfully dumb songs Mike Axelsen joins the pod for a show about those songs we love that are one sandwich short of a picnic. We're talking DUMB. Plus the songs on this list were big hits! Big and dumb, that's what we're all about, boy howdy!

If you missed Big Dumb Songs Volume 1 with special guest Amy Wohlitz from way back in 2014, here's the archive link:

Hey everybody, who has 2 thumbs, 400 episodes, and a big disbelieving grin on his face? This guy. Thank you so much for sticking with us through thick and thin, and here's to 400 more. This episode was taped back in a simpler time, February of 2020, when the air smelled like hope. Actually I went out to the park today and the air still smelled like hope. Hashtag Songs Of Hope. Anyway, our special guest this week, Nick Baker and your humble host had a swell time breaking down our list of the most Controversial Band Member Replacements of all time. To be sure, not every song you're going to hear is great, but the controversies are real. The stories behind the rockers who took over for another who either quit, was fired or died are ridiculous at best, tragic at worst. They're all included in this fine episode of a long-running podcast.

Nick Baker and his insanely talented wife Marina V are hard at work creating music that demands to be heard. Find out more at: https://marinav.com

Although they have made 'some' strides in recent years, the Grammy Academy has always been suspect in gauging the best music of any given year. From rock to disco to punk to new wave, the 1970s were arguably the best decade in the history of popular music, and yet so many artists and bands that currently reside in the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame, or are held as the best of all time in the court of public opinion just didn't get the love they deserved from the Grammys in their heyday. This is especially apparent when you find out who the Academy chose to represent "Best New Artist" back in that musically amazing decade. To highlight when they got it ridiculously wrong, and occasionally right, ATTT has procured the services of Pals O' The Pod Shannon Hurley and Diane Stroud to take a side-eyed glance at the list of bands and artists that won "Best New Artist" at the Grammys throughout the 70s. We were tasked with ranking these artists from Worst To First, as we sometimes like to do around here. Ben, Shannon and Diane take apart the list and put it back together in the proper WTF order, and you will have your mind blown when you find out who the winners were, who the other nominees were and what else got snubbed in that particular year. It's an eye-opening and hopefully highly entertaining lesson.

The weird, wild and wonderful world of fast singing is a delightful place to spend an hour and a half, and probably not much more beyond that. It can be downright exhausting listening to these singers busting a lung and a tongue. Veteran fast-sung-song aficionado Tony Ross joins the pod for a highly silly episode all about those little gems of manic goodness. Word to the wise, try not to get these frenetic tunes stuck in your head, lest you ever sleep again.

Big shout out to the great Steve Goodie, who will blow your mind with his parody of Weird Al's "Hardware Store" with a Harry Potter-tastic theme. Here's "Dumbledore":

Early on in the making of the musical stew that would eventually become rock n roll, a batch was cooked up that was one part country, one part stripped-down western swing, and one part rhythm & blues. They added a dash of attitude the result was lean & mean 2 minute rockers drenched with reverb and echo to spare. They called it "Rockabilly" and its unique combination of styles made it the perfect appetizer and inspiration for all of the rock that we've loved over the past 60 years or so. Longtime Pals O' The Pod and professed rockabilly fanatics Thad Wawro and Susan Atkinson join All Time Top Ten to count down the most legendary artists of the genre. Put on your historian hat and help us celebrate rock n roll's bastard cousin, rockabilly.

Who likes movies? Who likes biopic movies? Who likes biopic movies about musicians? We do! Some of the best performances in cinematic history have been movie musician portrayals, and the hardest part to pull off is when the movie is based on a real musician. That's what ATTT is all about this week, and we've got just the crew for this monumental task. Matt Dinan, Julia Marchese and Ryan Stockstad are 3 of the biggest movie nerds in all of Los Angeles county, which pretty much puts them in the category for biggest movie nerds worldwide. They know their stuff, and we here at ATTT know our music, so it was a delight to count down our all time faves. Some of these performances won Oscars, by the way. Check it out, cinephiles and vidiots!

Julia's horror-film-themed podcast Horror Movie Survival Guide is spooky fun. Check it out:

Matt Dinan-written and directed and Ryan Stockstad-produced horror short After The Flesh is coming to a film festival near you. In the meantime, check out the trailer:

Ryan's web series Halloween Horror Picks is coming back in 2020. Check out some old episodes in the meantime:

Any old schmo with an abacus can do the math and whip up a song in an odd time signature. What's tough is to write a song in 7/8 or 13/4 or 5/4 that people actually want to hear outside of the nutty math-rock folks (who we adore). To write an honest to Jebez HIT SONG with an odd time signature is such an incredibly impressive magic trick, we felt the topic warranted it's own episode of ATTT. Of course our ol pal Dustin Prince is more than up for the gig, as he drums with the best of em. To the uninitiated, fear not. We get into what an odd time signature actually is, and help you with your counting skillz. You'll need them as you try to do the math on these amazing songs that burned up the charts despite them being quite difficult to dance to.
