Funeral was the 2004 debut length from the Arcade Fire and it’s generally regarded as one of the strongest first efforts in recent memory. Toronto-based digital guru/ninja/Svengali/person Lindsay Lynch seconds this “emotion”. She joins Cam for this episode, talking about small bands that seem big, why concerts on Toronto Island were really not the greatest, the band (and the things) Islands and how her relationship with the Arcade Fire has evolved/maintained through their mushy middle ages. The episode wraps with a little chat about why it’s fun to dance to Daniel Caeser in public and why it’s now problematic to dance to Crystal Castles anywhere.

The Completely Ignored podcast returns for a fourth season with a focus on 10 “Albums of the 2000s”. Kicking things off is Massive Attack and its 2010 full-length Heligoland. Cam and Sammy both gush over the uniqueness and chill-AF excellence of this band. talk about how the infrequency of their music is a strength and ponder whether the “pile on the guest vocalists” approach had an influence over Damon Albarn for the third and fourth Gorillaz records. The show wraps with a quick chat about new tunes from MGMT and a less-quick chat about the passing of The Fall’s Mark E. Smith, how a mere mortal can tackle The Fall’s back catalogue plus reasons why Smith never got much credit for the LOLz he put into the tunes he wrote.
