    Take a good look at it. Look at it now.

    Who stole Thom's vodka cup?

  • 14: A Live One

    July 1st, 2019  |  54 mins 36 secs

    Jake is a Phish fan. Matthew is a Phish skeptic. Naturally they're tackling the Phishiest possible release, 1994's A Live One, which features a 30-minute song.

  • 13: Out of Time

    June 1st, 2019  |  1 hr 6 mins

    Special Guest Rich McLaughlin (Sirius XM, I Heart Radio, WFUV, Amazon Music) joins us on a journey through “Time.” On this month’s Hidden Jukebox, we discuss REM’s Out of Time (1991) as well as what made the band great, what made the band fall apart, and why Rich is so damned obsessed with these guys.

  • 12: Doggystyle

    May 1st, 2019  |  54 mins 51 secs

    We'll be here till six in the morning.

  • Episode 11: Dookie

    April 1st, 2019  |  50 mins 38 secs

    Green Day’s Dookie (1994) was punk rock your parents could enjoy in the car. Deceptively upbeat (until you listen to the lyrics), Dookie’s strong hooks and clever lyrics brought punk to a mass audience—and is still loads of fun today.

  • Episode 10: Star

    Maria, carry a rifle.

  • Episode 9: If You're Feeling Sinister

    June 1st, 2018  |  41 mins 27 secs

    We should be okay and we won't get in a muddle.

  • Episode 8: OK Computer

    May 3rd, 2018  |  45 mins 43 secs

    This month, once again we talk about an obscure 90s album you've never heard of. Pretty good.

  • Episode 7: Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home

    April 1st, 2018  |  42 mins 46 secs

    A stone-cold classic that's as relevant, progressive, and weird as it was in 1995. These are loud, smart hope-from-the-gutter tunes, and we're kind of in love.

  • Episode 6: 0898

    March 1st, 2018  |  32 mins 51 secs

    Matthew really puts Laura through the wringer on this one. 0898 is an overproduced, saccharine mess, and Matthew couldn't love it more. Laura, on the other hand....

  • Episode 5: Mezzanine

    February 1st, 2018  |  46 mins 28 secs

    Mezzanine is Massive Attack's 1999 breakout third album. On this episode, we chill out after the rave and talk nicknames, musical diversity, fade-ins, buildups, and teenage weirdos. We also say "Bristol" many times as if we know where that is.
