Episode 012 | Anderson .Paak “Malibu” and Primus “Sailing the Seas of Cheese”

Episode 12 of Album Swap has Primus "Sailing the Seas of Cheese" and Anderson .Paak "Malibu" album reviewed

Anderson .Paak and Primus are the albums swapped in Episode 12. Malibu is the second album from Paak whose attention to detail is not just part of his name but evident in his music. Malibu was a breakthrough album for Paak spawning four singles and a Grammy nomination. Sailing the Seas of Cheese is the second album from San Francisco’s Primus, released in 1991 and contains the classic song “Jerry was a Race Car Driver.”

Episode 12 also debuts a new format. After taking some time to review the first 10 episodes we’ve decided to change the format a bit. Instead of reviewing all songs we now have a segment called “The Good, The Bad and the Boogie!” We still have some artist background and other segments such as our scoring but the hashtags are gone! We hope you enjoy the new format and appreciate any feedback.

Playlists

Anderson .Paak “Malibu”

Primus “Sailing the Seas of Cheese”

Episode 009 | Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” & King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard “Oddments”

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” by The Beatles in episode 9. Swapped with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard “Oddments”, an psychedelic rock band from Australia.

Hailed as one of the greatest albums ever recorded, “Sgt. Pepper’s” is a masterpiece of songwriting as well as creating new recording techniques. Released at the start of the “Summer of Love” in 1967, Sgt. Peppers created a new sound and standard for albums.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have to be heard to be experienced. You won’t find this group on the radio but they have some interesting songs and sounds borrowing from 60s pop, folk, garage punk, soul all tied together with some very fuzzy vocals.
