The IGP Crew Watches - Elvis: That's The Way It Is
vor 2 Tagen
1:01:43It's Monday, and we're back with a brand spanking new episode for your ears to swallow. Another new episode means another special guest that we add to the roster. This week we welcome fellow podcaster, and OddPods Network brethren, Sam from The 500 Section Lounge Podcast. We don't do a whole lot of movie reviewing here, because well you know it's a music podcast and all, but sometimes we run across a film that is music related, and just too good not to talk about. That's exactly where this film lands amongst music-related movies. "Elvis: That's Just The Way It Is" takes us all the way back to 1970, and isn't just your typical run-of-the-mill music documentary. After being re-edited in 2001, ETJTWIS let fans take an inside look at the process of just how much went into being the machine that was Elvis Presley. Rare behind the scenes footage laid the landscape to several iconic Las Vegas performaces. You might think you know "The King Of Rock And Roll" but this film lets us see a side of Elvis that even his most die hard fans had never seen before. It's intimate. It's candid, and it's vulnerable. But more importantly and simply put, it's a damn good film. It's season 6, episode 14 of your Granddad's favorite Las Vegas waitress', favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!

Pretty Weird, Isn't It Al?
1:02:27Hopefully, ya'll are getting used to the new format. If not, too bad! Just kidding, but seriously though we hope you're picking up what we're laying down. This week we caught up with John from The Beer'd Al Podcast, to talk about none other than Weird Al, who would have guessed? There is about a 99% chance that you've at least heard the name "Weird Al", and thanks to MTV more like a 100% chance that you've heard at least one of his songs, and seen at least one of his brilliant music videos. Having had his foot in the music industry's door since the early 80s, it's kind of strange that he's not basically a household name at this point. Hell, if you're under the age of 30, and are reading this right now, there is a chance that you have no clue who I am even talking about here, which is even crazier. Beyond the music, and being an insanely talented singer, songwriter, and musician. Weird Al is also a screenwriter, actor, author, and TV host among many other things. The guy has put out 14 studio albums going all the way back to the early 80s and has been nominated for multiple Grammys (winning 5 of them in various categories), yet it still feels like he simply hasn't gotten the recognition that he very well should have. It would appear that after all these years, not only the music industry, but the general public as well have decided to box "Weird Al" in as that guy who just makes those silly parody songs. Nothing more. Nothing less. Even if that is the case, it hasn't seemed to have slowed him down, and his core fanbase has been there all along the way. Join us as we get weird, and talk about Al, all while wondering when this guy is going to finally get his flowers.

The Age Old Rockle Debacle
48:00This argument seems to be as old as time (or at least as old as "Rock" music), and well if you're as old as time, maybe it's your fault that we're having to debate this, to begin with. Hell, we can't even agree as a species as to where Rock 'N' Roll as a whole began. That right there should tell you something. With that being said, it seems like every couple of years when one of our beloved Rock legends plays his final note, we have a bunch of people shaking their fists at the sky claiming "Maaaaan Rock is dead", or "Maaaaaaan you know they just really don't make 'em like they used to". The scenario plays out time and time again, and almost always with the same results to be had. Those results being you and I sitting here time and time again intensely debating whether or not "Rock" is in fact dead. So....is it? Is the Rock music that we've all grown accustomed to and have grown up knowing and loving actually dead? Has the Rock we once knew morphed into some kid in his mom's basement screaming into an autotuned mic because no one is swiping right on his tinder profile? Has Rock turned into some guy with an acoustic guitar under a bridge belting out ballads about infamous serial killers? Or, hear me out here for a second. I know I'm just the intern that writes these things but just lend me your ear for a second. What if, the "Rock" music we're all used to has just evolved and changed with a music industry that refused to get ahead of the internet, and is now scrambling to continuously stay relevant. So come shake your fist with us as we discuss this age-old testament that folks just can't seem to leave alone. Evolution is natural, so I'll leave you with this, what if Rock isn't dead, and you're just old? It's season 6, episode 9 of your favorite neighborhood watch block captain's favorite music podcast.

IGP Crew Album Review: Amigo The Devil - Everything Is Fine
49:57We've come around once again to one of our favorite segments of the podcast, where we let you the listener choose an album, any album, and then we take a crack at listening, reviewing, and then telling you all what we think of it as a whole. This week we were tasked with taking on not only an album that we had never heard before but also an artist that we had never heard of. A master of "Murderfolk" (which we had also not heard of until taking a stab at this album), a crooner from the dark side, straight from the mind of Danny Kiranos. If you haven't figured out who I'm talking about yet, it sounds like you might need to brush up on a little bit of Amigo The Devil. Amigo The Devil is no stranger to darkness, serial killers, or country music. In October 2018 Danny Kiranos, better known by his stage name Amigo The Devil released his first full-length album titled "Everything Is Fine". Recruiting Ross Robinson for production and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine for drums. A pretty big deal for an outlaw country guy putting together his first full-length project. "Everything Is Fine" and Amigo The Devil are both unique listening experiences in the least and if you had to liken them to something you're more familiar with, think along the lines of if Johnny Cash and Orville Peck had a little music baby and sang about even deeper and darker stuff than they already do. Sound strange? Sound appealing? It certainly does and that is because it is. I would love to keep writing about this Amigo, but unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot of info floating around out there about him, so perhaps the easiest way to get to know him is to listen to this album. It's season 6, episode 8 of your favorite local exterminator's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!

IGP Presents: A Totally Epic Cover Battle - Hurt
50:58It's not often that you come across a song that seemingly transcends time and space when performed by two different artists. It's even more interesting when those two artists are on the complete opposite ends of the musical spectrum. You might be wondering what the hell I am even talking about, and before you swerve off the road in a podcast rage, let me explain. In 1994 Trent Reznor and his band Nine Inch Nails would release The Downward Spiral (also known to NIN fans as Halo 8). The final track on the album would tell a dark weathered story about drug addiction and self-harm. Trent doesn't divulge much information about the reasoning behind the writing of his songs, as he wants to leave it up to the interpretation of the listener, but it's rumored that this song was written in retrospect. But when listening it certainly seems that Trent was writing about something he knew a little something about from being thrust into superstardom and getting buried within the darkness that is the music industry. Whether it's an autobiographical tale or just a story about a friend of a friend, it certainly hits home for those that can relate to it. Fast forward to 2002, and the last person you'd ever expect to find himself near a Nine Inch Nails track would lend his iconic vocals to his own version of the song, helped along (or hindered) by Rick Rubin lending his production skills to the reworked track. People at first were quite skeptical because your average Johnny Cash fan has not a clue who Trent Reznor or the Nine Inch Nails are. Hell, Trent Reznor was even skeptical about Johnny Cash covering his work because of the potential for it to add a gimmicky value. It turns out that Rick Rubin might have figured out something that no one else had at the time. This version of the song felt like a window into Johnny Cash's past where he also struggled with many of the same things that Trent had throughout the years, just for much, much longer. A true retrospective view on a tattered and torn life in the music industry. Johnny Cash's version of this already iconic song would eventually be considered one of his greatest works. Its accompanying video, featuring images from Cash's life and directed by Mark Romanek, was named the best video of the year by the Grammy Awards and CMA Awards, and the best video of all time by NME in July 2011. Hurt (Cash's Version) would go on to sell 2,148,000 downloads in the United States as of March 2017. To say that it made a huge impact, would I think be putting it quite lightly. When all is said and done there are just some covers that hit the nail on the head, and this happens to be one of them. It's season 6, episode 7 of your (yes, you the listeners) favorite music podcast. Hell, maybe it's even your favorite weekly podcast to listen to overall. If that's the case, we're not sure what else to say besides THANK YOU.

Suns Out Buns Out
47:56Well now that spring has sprung and we've moved on to 85-degree temps with 70% humidity, things are starting to stick to one another, so we thought it would be fitting to talk about our favorite summer songs that go along with our favorite summer activities. Summer is not only a season but also a mental state. It could be 40 degrees and rainy but when you throw on that specific song, you're immediately transported to a sunny beach or maybe a backyard barbecue. I know for me, sometimes (depending on the song) it only takes a second to put me right back in the backyard, grill going HAM, cold beer in hand, with my buns out. Hey, not those kinds of buns pervert, don't you grill your buns before you slap your favorite kind of meat in them? Sheesh! This week we're talking about the top songs that we either hear the most during summer or make us think of that savory summer sun. If you're still thinking of my buns, for one, stop. For two, get your own! There is even a bit of story time this week, which is always something we know you guys look forward to. Whether you're at the local neighborhood cookout or down at the beach catching a wave, or maybe you've even had the unfortunate experience of coming home to find Grandma in the backyard by the pool tanning her hide. Regardless of any of that, there are songs that represent our summertime experiences, and we're here to talk about them. Join us as we sip these margaritas and slip into something more swimmable. In the meantime, we'll leave you to get that vision of Grandma out of your head. It's season 6, episode 5 of your favorite drunken uncle's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!
