Daniel breaks out the wheels of steel to lead our discussion of DJ Shadow’s 1996 debut opus Endtroducing…whilst Erich busts out the trip hop for Portishead’s 1995 smash, Dummy. And the digressions! We got Joan Armatrading, Sheena’s “Sugar Walls,” Robert Christgau’s ladyhating, Soho’s “Hippychick,” and revisit the Billy Joel Philosophical Logic Statement Regarding Glass Houses. Daniel pulls a stunt for his mid-year kicker pick, and it will leave you here green but wise.
