This past week on Mano A Mano we inducted another great album into the Concept Album hall of fame. This week it was another Giraffes? Giraffes! album. Their most recent which was just released this year. In addition there is something very different about this album from all past G?G! albums! Check it out in the podcast here:

A week or two ago we did our first listen to the newly released Limblifter album. We made a scary discovery during the listening party that this could be the last Limblifter album. Maybe we interpreted the wording wrong. Join us, take a listen to this album. Give it a purchase – We were right, it is fantastic!

The Mars Volta released their first album in 10 years and toured for the first time in about the same amount of time. Both were fantastic! This new album is the third Mars volta album added to the Mano A Mano Concept album hall of fame. Check it out here:

While the station was setting up it’s remote broadcast server in the early days of the COVID-19 self isolation I took it upon myself to fill the airwaves on a few days. One of those days I featured an abundance of great albums. The show was not streamed nor podcasted but with this HUGE bands I knew it wouldn’t matter anyways because these bands have super strict podcasting copyrights. In this group we even got to a few requested albums!
Here is the full podcast from Sat. Feb 15th! Three great albums were added to the Concept Album Mosaic.
Artist: Del Bel
Notes: I believe I came across this album while I was looking for Canadian content for our Audio comic “The Electrifying Adventures (of DJ Jeff E Jeff)” and loved the chill-out vibe of this whole album. I found a CD copy in the studio and have enjoyed the full album ever since!
Notes: Ratatat is a Brooklyn-based electronic rock duo consisting of Mike Stroud (guitar, melodica, synthesizers, percussion) and producer Evan Mast (bass, synthesizers, percussion).
Notes: Anywhere has featured a revolving door of musicians, including Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Mike Watt, Krist Novoselic, Dale Crover and Jonathan Hischke
Album: Pisces Iscariot
Artist: Smashing Pumpkins
Notes: This is a compilation of B-sides formed into an album and was still one of their greatest albums and one of the best albums of the year back in 1994.
