Episode 144: ...Burn, Piano Island, Burn by The Blood Brothers

It’s Week 2 of our Producer Spotlight month on Ross Robinson, as we listen to albums The Angel produced for some decidedly un-Nu-Metal bands. This week it’s The Blood Brothers and their album, ….Burn, Piano Island, Burn. Before we dive into that we discuss Lorin’s recent appearances on Talk Toomey and The Best Show as well as go over Lollipop Lust Kill feedback in Who’s Tweeting. Then it’s time for The Blood Brothers(19:07). Is Sasscore a real genre? How do Ross’s Rules apply to this album? Is this actually jazz? And is Roach Koach too old for this music?
