The Unblinking Ear Podcast: Zeitgeist, Baby

Here at Unblinking Ear HQ, we've noticed over the last couple of months a large amount of music press/internet babble devoted to deluxe reissues of albums that came out 20 years ago*. There's nothing wrong with that as we here at Unblinking Ear celebrate rock history as well and have also been known to have something of a 90s fetish.

However, what use is nostalgia when it overshadows the vital work happening in the here and now? There has been such a deluge of terrific new releases over the past few weeks and months that we've been struggling to keep up. In fact, the amount of fine new records has been so great that we've decided to eschew the past temporarily and devote this edition of the podcast entirely to brand new music. With so much, so good coming out recently, it was actually rather easy to acompliish.

The next podcast will surely feature some fine music recorded many years prior mixed with equally fine music of the present. But for now... dig the now.

*Incidentally, the actual best album of 1991 was Eleventh Dream Day's Lived To Tell.
