S3, E3: Murmur by R.E.M.

July 31, 2017

Cam and Sammy stick around the early 1980s and profusely gush over R.E.M. and its first full-length, 1983's Murmur. In this episode, we go deep on the first five R.E.M. albums, I.R.S. Records, hidden gems from the band's later years and why R.E.M. is so accessible... yet so hard to categorize. Cam also attemps to defend "Shiny Happy People", fairly unsuccessfully. We wrap by talking about some new stuff from Alvvays and some slightly less-new stuff from that guy Bob Dylan.
