Episode #15 “Whatever” / Album: “Nevermind” by Nirvana

In this episode Zach and Dave discuss the album “Nevermind” by Nirvana, which was released on September 24, 1991 by DGC, a subsidiary of Geffen Records.

We are joined in this episode by Caitlin White, managing editor of music at Uproxx.

Zach expresses love for Sturgill Simpson’s cover of “In Bloom”. Dave keeps quiet about this as he has never heard of the aforementioned Simpson.

Here’s a great video of Butch Vig, Nevermind’s producer, breaking down the recording of “Drain You.”

Episode #04 “Doll Steaks” / Album “In Utero” by Nirvana

Posted on by
In this episode Zach and Dave discuss the Nirvana album “In Utero”. We gush a little, then Dave gets critical. We get mired in whether or not “Rape Me” has a political message.
Needless to say, we love this album.
  • For some further insight into producer Steve Albini’s production methods have a look at this episode of “Sonic Highways“.
  • Use the calculator on Steve Albini’s website to find out how much it would cost for you to record your album at his place. It’s given us some food for thought.
  • A wonderful article on The Guardian about the use of cello in popular music.
  • The 33 1/3 books including Gillian G. Gaar’s one on “In Utero”.
