Attempts at being flowery about a rock record are definitely contained within. This, being posted in the final moments of June 21st, is a reflection on Guided By Voices' 1994 indie classic Bee Thousand which celebrates its 20th anniversary on the aforementioned day. There are some thoughts on the reunited lineup and some interesting pop culture tidbits but ultimately this is one humble attempt at celebrating twenty years of Bee Thousand. Be on the lookout for more reflections back to other great albums from 1994 in upcoming episodes.
Episode 5, which should come out in July, will center around Francis Ford Coppola's One From The Heart which features the music of Tom Waits and is currently available on Netflix "Watch Instant".

The aftermath of Record Store Day left Terry overwhelmed in the best possible way. This episode explores the variety of music that came his way over roughly a four-to-six week period. As the title of the episode would suggest, XTC does play a small part. However, that Skylarking reissue is discussed as well as compliations from Numero Group, Rough Guide & Light In The Attic. Then there are the recent releases and reissues from Courtney Barnett, Flaming Lips, The Both, Tori Amos, Liam Finn, Wye Oak, R.E.M. and The Zombies. In short, if there isn't any music for you then Terry would suggest seeking some out at your "local" record store. If you don't know of one then recordstoreday.com might be able to help. Please support your local, independently minded record stores.

Episode 4 will celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release of Guided by Voices' classic Bee Thousand. And given their two 2014 releases, they too get a brief mention in this episode of the podcast. A lot of music to talk about but not in a lot of time so don't be surprise if some of this resurfaces in upcoming episodes.
