About this Episode

In this piano-driven installment, Joe and Scott dig into the “Do It Again” B-side “Fire In the Hole”, a sleeper hit hiding on Can’t Buy a Thrill’s back half. The boys follow the piano line into the opening track of Fiona Apple’s When the Pawn…, “On the Bound” from 1999, and a discussion of “a jazz singer for the end of the millenium”, late ‘90s production tropes, and Paul Thomas Anderson. Then it’s off to the Continent for a tour of Arnaud Desplechin’s 2004 French drama Kings and Queen, with tonal dynamics to rival the Dan. Dakota keeps the boys in line, Scott reviews a Flying Lotus show, and Joe delivers a heart-felt send-off to the musician, singer, poet, and cartoonist David Berman.
