Podcast: The big old book of CDs

Exploring a time capsule of Madison music from the mid-aughts.

Exploring a time capsule of Madison music from the mid-aughts.

On this week’s podcast, Ben Munson and Scott Gordon crack open a CD book they amassed between 2006 and 2012-ish while working at the local edition of The A.V. Club (RIP).

It contains mostly local music released during that period. It’s an obviously incomplete but still very fun cross-section, spanning releases from Madison bands past, and some that are still going. Ben and Scott revisit music from artists including The Bracelets, Dumate, The Arge, Wilhelmina Baker, and Voltress, and reflect on the unpredictable and rewarding ways in which the local music community shifts over time.

You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 

 

But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.
