Run the Jewels:  RTJ4

Run the Jewels: RTJ4

August 22, 2021

The air is thick, the temps are rising, there is no doubt we are knee deep into the dog days of summer.  And what better way to wind up this summer than with a track by track analysis of Run the Jewel's "RTJ4"(2020).   We go through an abbreviated history of Killer Mike and El-P's solo and joint work before tackling this mammoth record.  This album was an instant classic for the backpack and tunnel crew, but what do your Hole Runners think of it?  Will Eric be inspired by the hard hitting lyrics?  Will Steve lay out some cardboard and get to breakin'?  Will Marc transform into a Hip Hop Head overnight?  One must listen to find out!

B-Side: Definitive Jux Records

B-Side: Definitive Jux Records

August 4, 2021

There are 4 Elements of Hip Hop.  The mic, the turntable, the breakdance and the spray paint.  There are also 4 elements to Pod Like a Hole.  Marc, Eric, Steve and Ethan Hunt.  

 

In celebration of our next proper episode, a track by track analysis of "Run the Jewels 4", 2 out of those 4 elements (Eric and Steve) present a very special B-Side.  In this bonus episode we look at the solo careers of the Run the Jewels members:  Killer Mike and El-P.  Our focus remains zeroed in on El-P's record label (Def Jux) , where he released most of his solo albums and a slew of unbeatable , underground boom bap MCs.  Def Jux meant more than Eric and Steve can explain to their own development as music fans, but they sure will try.  

Rock your yankee to the side and enjoy the sludgy doom rap of Def Jux.  

See you next time for "RTJ4"

Deftones - White Pony

Deftones - White Pony

July 11, 2021

To conclude our discussion on the Deftones, the hosts at Pod Like a Hole analyze White Pony track by track. The third album is considered the album that pushes the Deftones into a new level of the nu-metal category and arguably ejects them from the genre. 

Join us as we saddle up the White Pony (with a respectful nod to the Black Stallion remixes) and ride through the dark backroads of this modern classic.

B-Side: “SackRock”

June 28, 2021

In the spirit of celebrating The Deftones , and in preparation of our official "White Pony" episode, we decided to give a little context to the music scene in Sacramento, especially during the late 90's early 00's.  This will give some context to why that album was so special, geographically speaking.  

 

In this episode we speak with local musician and Sacramento music scene stalwart Sean Bivins (Eightfourseven, Will Haven 

 

Enjoy our conversation (and Steve's follow up with Joey from NYC coming soon) about this unique scene and a little context to the time and place before we drop our White Pony episode.

Deftones Discography Rundown

Deftones Discography Rundown

June 20, 2021

In this episode, the hosts take you through the Deftones history and discography in preparation for the discussion and analysis of White Pony. 

As always, we strive to answer the burning questions of the day. Do they shake off the label of being simply poster children for Nu Metal? Do they deserve a key to the city for their musical heroics? As fellow Sacramentans, have we ever crossed paths with them in a dark alleyway or a local dive bar? Find out these answers and more in a rundown of the Deftones' career.

Clipping.: Splendor and Misery Pt. 2

Clipping.: Splendor and Misery Pt. 2

June 4, 2021

We are back to conclude our coverage of the industrial hip-hop group Clipping and their ambitious 2016 concept album "Splendor and Misery".  Eric, Steve and Marc wrap this one up for you with a track-by-track analysis.  

This album is the story of the relationship between an escaped slave from the future and the computer AI of the ship he commandeers.  It explores the nature of freedom and the history of shackles.

Will Marc appreciate Daveed Diggs' spaced aged swagger?  

Will Steve graffiti #2331's lyrics on the side of his neighbor's house?  

Will Eric freestyle over the entire album instead of actually reviewing it, as a bit of a high concept Rick-roll?  

You've got to listen to know for sure.

Clipping: Splendor and Misery Pt.1

Clipping: Splendor and Misery Pt.1

May 27, 2021

For this season of Run the Gamut, we've got a few grimy, head bopping hip hop albums.  Of course the diamond dice, in their infinite wisdom, have rolled one of the most unconventional boom bap records on this list.  The experimental, concept story of Clipping's "Splendor and Misery" is a heavy one, but there's work to do before we get to that. 

 

In this Introductory episode, your PLAHBoys go through their history of Hip Hop music.  It's a fun L-train ride through the sights and sounds of hip hop in the 90s and 00's.  Your hosts don't stray too far, as we wrap this up with the history of the group Clipping.  We talk Daveed Diggs, Hamilton and Snipes & Hutson and the career of this strange Industrial/Hip Hop project.  We'll follow this one up with a track by track analysis of "Splendor and Misery" next week.  As always, enjoy the talk and let us know your hip hop history.

The Doors: L.A. Woman Pt. 2

The Doors: L.A. Woman Pt. 2

May 21, 2021

If you just got into town about an hour ago, took a look around to see which way the wind blow, you will know that the big boys from Pod Like a Hole are talking about The Doors sixth studio album from 1971 L.A. Woman

Last episode we took you through a history of the Doors and now it's time to go track by track on Marc's nomination of L.A. Woman. Are you a lucky listener in the City of Night? Or jusa nudder loss angle? (I'm pretty sure that's what Mr. Mojo Risin is saying). Anyways, sit back, put this episode on at dusk, and look out at the endless highway while listening to three guys talk about Venice Beach Blues.
