We've got two new release recommendations for you this week.

Veteran gospel singer Mavis Staples latest release is a beautifully written statement of love and togetherness, focused on lifting up minorities.

And Canadian rockers, One Bad Son, have added yet another solid rock record to their ever growing catalog.

Help us spread the message of good music by cranking that nerd to 11!

Hard to believe it's been a year since we started our Essential Project deep-dive into Blues, Country and Jazz music. Today on the show we recap the albums we highlighted throughout the year as well as share how the project has effected our listening to modern day music.

Crank that essential nerdiness to 11.

Join us as we take a stroll down memory lane, all the way back to the year 1994. We cover some of the movies and pop culture that was going on, but our focus is on 2 influential albums from that year.

Lesser known and underappreciated group King's X put out a great record that managed to fit Beatles-esq harmony's into the hard rock sound of the time. And a new punk rock group called Sunny Day Real Estate put out a record that would come to define a new genre. 

Sag your pants, put on your flannel and crank that nerd.

Everyone loves a good story. We talk over 2 albums that not only are interesting musically, but also take the time to tell a story.

In 1988 metal group Queensryche released their an ambitious record detailing the adventures of a brainwashed hit man working for a secret organization trying to overthrow the government. It's pretty much a an action movie set to music.

And we also dig into the lore surrounding The Mars Volta's haunting 2008 release that involves a Ouija board, an evil spirit and a flood. You gotta hear it to believe it.

Nerd it!

If you love albums like we do, you probably love vinyl too. Today we dig into our vinyl collections to highlight 2 records that we think sound best on wax.

Andy recommends a Zappa record that nicely balances his musical genius and goofy sense of humor.

The Dude picks out a deluxe version of a Lenny Kravitz's 1993 record, Are You Gonna Go My Way that includes some lesser known tracks.

Spin that black circle!

We've got 2 hot 'n fresh new release recommendations for you this week.

The Dude steps outside of his comfort zone and picks an experimental record from doom metal band Bell Witch. Andy selects a zany electronic record that certainly is unique and has the dude scratching his head.

Don't be a turd, turn up that nerd!

Let the Album Nerds help get you in the Halloween spirit. We've got 2 great spooky album recommendations for you - one to party with and the other to scare yourself.

Hear our thoughts on Black Sabbath's 1970 classic debut record as well as underground British group Coil's 1999 release Musick to Play in the Dark.

For our (believe it or not) 50th episode we dive back-in to our Essential Jazz and Country project. Join us for some mind-bending saxophone from the Lee Konitz and then sit back while Willie Nelson tells us story about love and loss in the wild west. Pour some nerd on that shit.

Giving a friend an album recommendation can be a tricky prospect. There's a lot that can go wrong, but when it works, it's magical.

On this episode we talk over 2 albums recommendations we gave to each other - Benjamin Booker's blues rocker 'Witness' and Canadian punk group Propagandhi's new release 'Victory Lap'.

Tell us your thoughts on these records @albumnerds on the Twitters. Nerd it!

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
