Episode Thirteen: George Returns!
George is back! After a long summer in the desert, George makes his return as we review new albums from Eminem, Troye Sivan, Big Red Machine, Paul Simon, and Russ. While we are missing Hunter, we do get to explore what 2018 projects we originally bashed but now are loving, what projects disgusted us, and what projects we would make fun of our friends for having in rotation on the next road trip. And Cory takes over the Hot Takes segment to discuss the state of music in 2018. R.I.P. Mac Miller
Episode Twelve: Pop Overload!
Get ready to be overloaded with pop music! With guest panelist Darius Rivera making his #sheltersound debut, we give our five-word reviews for the new albums from Ariana Grande, Mitski, Young Thug, Blood Orange, and Amine. We also answer questions such as what project made you the most disappointed in the current state of music, what was the best cover or sample you’ve heard recently, and what project left you the most dazed and confused? Plus Tyler brings a Hot Take that challenges industry standards for consuming music.
Episode 11: The Decline of Hip-Hop?
NEW SHELTER SOUND PODCAST EPISODE 11: THE DECLINE OF HIP-HOP? – As we continue to break-in the new podcast format, our panelists review releases from Travis Scott, YG, Nicki Minaj, Mac Miller, and Quavo. Is it a coincidence that Tyler brings a hot take claiming a decline in hip-hop and a rejuvenation of rock? Or has he just been listening to too much metal lately? We also explore what projects made us want to cry on the dance floor, what projects we had to skip 30-seconds in, and what projects would have been better if someone else had made them.
Episode 10: Relaunch
We’re back and better than ever with a new format for our podcast! Now only 30 minutes or less, each podcast will feature our panelists answering wild questions and delivering concise album reviews… but there can only be one champion! Tune in this week to find out which tracks made us feel most like a religious moon man, which were most excruciating to listen to, and which made us feel most like a traitor. We also review Chance the Rapper’s new singles and albums by Wiz Khalifa, The Internet, Denzel Curry, and Santigold.
Episode 9: Top Tens
After our Top 4 Albums of the Year So Far reveal on Instagram during the first week of July, the guys expand on their full Top Ten lists, all of which feature Pusha T’s DAYTONA! But there were still plenty of releases to cover to, including Drake’s Scorpion, Death Grips’ Year of the Snitch, Future’s Beast Mode 2, and King Princess’ Make My Bed – EP. What albums made our Top Ten lists? How do Drake, Teyana Taylor, and Florence + The Machine’s new projects land with our panel? Press play to find out! Now available on SoundCloud.
Episode 8: Dealing With Kanye… and the Illuminati?
The last three weeks have featured some monumental music releases, ranging from Beyoncé and JAY Z’s Everything is Love to Kanye West’s Ye and even another Father John Misty album. After plenty of speculation, Tyler, Hunter, and Cory dissect the three new G.O.O.D. Music releases with Kanye’s fingerprints on them and how to deal with how problematic he is. We also touch on the Illuminati (way too much for our own safety), our Five-Word Reviews, and the death of abusive rapper XXXTentacion.
**Disclaimer: This podcast was recorded before the controversial release of Kanye West’s “Ye”. The views expressed in this episode may no longer accurately reflect the opinions of Shelter Sound regarding this project and Kanye West**
June’s a busy month with a lot of new music being released, and Shelter Sound has got you covered! While our collaborator George will be contributing segments from the New Mexico desert, Hunter, Tyler, and Cory hold down the fort to go in-depth releases from Arctic Monkeys, CHVRCHES, A$AP Rocky, and more. Plus, we chime in on the Pusha T-Drake beef and Tyler brings a hot take that could tear this group apart…
It’s peak music season, and between all of the latest releases and the virtual meltdown of one of music’s most influential stars, we have a LOT to discuss! The Shelter takes a closer look at album releases from J. Cole, Janelle Monáe, Rae Sremmurd, and Post Malone. We also bring back the Five-Word Review segment and spend some time discussing the unraveling of Kanye West.
It’d been a little bit, but we’re back! We take a deep look at the new releases from Cardi B, Kali Uchis, CZARFACE & MF DOOM, and Flatbush Zombies. In order to catch-up on all the other music you may have missed, including Jack White, Kasey Musgraves, and The Weeknd, we debut the Five-Word Review segment. Also, Tyler tackles the Illuminati in our Hot Takes With Tyler Teagle segment.
We’ve finally returned with our fourth podcast! A lot has happened since we last recorded, so we dive into albums ranging from the “Black Panther” companion album to Janelle Monáe’s newest singles. We also talk about our top 3 most anticipated albums of 2018 and one new release you may not have caught.
Our third podcast is here! Trying some new things, joined by Luke Evans of Lukewarm Reviews (check him out here) for a good ol’ Redemption. We also talk about the Oscar nominations for original song and score and why Justin Timberlake’s new album is the worst.
Join us for our second podcast, with a redemption roundup for Hunter, more takes, more news, discussions on the new music so far in January, and some personal predictions!
And we’re up with the first episode of the Shelter Sound podcast. This is the pilot of what will hopefully become a regular podcast!
