Welcome to Beyond The Pond! Hosted by Brian Brinkman and David Goldstein, our goal is to use the music of Phish to introduce you, the listener, to a diverse assortment of music. Through the medium of great Phish jams, we're going to dive into music history, draw parallels with a wide range of genres, and discuss some of our favorite bands & albums. We hope you dig it! Our first episode focuses on one of the most popular Phish jams of all time: 07/10/1999 Chalk Dust Torture. Songs selected for this episode are: LCD Soundsystem "All I Want," David Bowie "Heroes," Brian Eno "The Big Ship," Broken Social Scene "KC Accidental," The War On Drugs "Burning," and Colin Stetson/Sarah Neufeld "Never Were The Way She Was." In addition, we both discuss two new 2017 albums we highly recommend you check out: Thundercat "Drunk" and Jay Som "Everybody Works."
