#184: The Plastic Hassle by Ripe

We’re heading back to Australia for this week’s Requested Review and checking out the 1994 album The Plastic Hassle by Ripe. Lots of shoegaze influenced bands spent less time on vocals and melody than dialing in the perfect tremolo and delay settings on their guitar pedals, but not Ripe, who manage to craft to genuinely catchy melodies and memorable lyrics. And like those same bands, Ripe aren’t afraid to stretch the songs into a variety of territories, whether it’s acoustic ballads or minor key dirges.

Songs in this Episode:

  • Intro - Mother Tongue
  • 3:49 - History of the Band
  • 9:23 - Something Fierce
  • 16:29 - Centre of the Universe
  • 27:34 - Get Your Shit Together
  • Outro - Daylight Wants to Kill

#183: Dig by I Mother Earth

This week Jason dug through his cd stacks picked an album having no recollection what it sounded like - I Mother Earth's 1993 debut release Dig. Sometime that leads to a welcome surprise, and other times reminds you why you stopped listening. I Mother Earth hits a lot of our sweet spots - big guitar and drums, crisp production, slight progressive elements - but also manages to work in some mutual annoyances - slap bass and long jams. So which side prevails? Tune in to find out.

Songs in this Episode:

  • Intro - Production
  • 6:49 - History of the Band
  • 23:10 - Not Quite Sonic
  • 31:15 - Rain Will Fall
  • 44:57 - The Universe in You
  • Outro - The Universe in You
