Episode 10: Alba
Today we look at an obscure but also very important little folk band from Scotland that happened to show up right in the middle of the Second Great Revival of Scottish Music. What is your favorite typical Scottish song type? Mine is "The English came and burned my prize sheep so I leveled York again."Albums:Alba: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0YunAjtJCkmBajAbDRG1aAT3mzwBUG2JAmerica: https://youtu.be/gZCLHpBpU6MScottish music revival references: A ceilidh: https://youtu.be/xPDwO-M-VUEA Scottish song written down in 1776: https://youtu.be/aN0m6ok5QDwDonovan: https://youtu.be/k0jVxhUTVeYJSD Band: https://youtu.be/igrRWHfhmiEThe Battlefield Band: https://youtu.be/j8nIFwpb3NQWolfstone: https://youtu.be/HJyOlFmqd1MExamples of Acid Croft:https://youtu.be/AerLPwngukQhttps://youtu.be/BVV6OQpuHD4https://youtu.be/OsHS4X6JSzgOther celtic rock recommendations:Flogging Molly: https://youtu.be/_32ok2OOYhIBlack 47: https://youtu.be/XEm3ZteNOQYEnter the Haggis: https://youtu.be/hV9Aa2VX5U8 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Episode 9: Brahms the Piano Pieces & Etc by Dmitri Alexeev
It is a lame hipster thing to say you like everything except rap, country, and classical. Personally I think classical is fine, except that also it is annoying and I hate it. Todays episode is a bunch of music by Brahms who lived in very interesting times but who was not really a showy person himself. Andrew helps us talk about romance.Albums: Brahms the piano pieces by Dmitri Alexeev: https://youtu.be/FM07lPKoQl4https://youtu.be/WXnojYMsYmAhttps://youtu.be/wKWz13yxAXUAlba: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0YunAjtJCkmBajAbDRG1aAT3mzwBUG2JDmitri Alexeev being interviewed:https://youtu.be/XqsgTbAGa4kReferences: Chieftains - Rocky Road to Dublin: https://youtu.be/bdOI6jIRdRQDropkick Murphys - Rocky Road to Dublin: https://youtu.be/mCoUj3kSwrcBrahms Hungarian Dance: https://youtu.be/YXT42ghiuZ4Wagner: https://youtu.be/GGU1P6lBW6QBTS: https://youtu.be/WMweEpGlu_U See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Episode 5: AFI - Sing the Sorrow
I have a complex relationship with this album. I suppose this is what most people would call a guilty pleasure? But the reasons for such lingering guilt as I have about enjoying this record are complicated and probably not obvious to anyone who is not a record store guy. Sadly, I am a record store guy, so I can’t just enjoy things.
