Bob and Dan discuss all things hockey video games in this episode! What are their favorite titles of all time, who likes arcade vs simulation games, and some new or upcoming titles are discussed.
On a recent episode of the Hashtag Hockey Podcast, we talked about some new albums that we have been really enjoying. So, Dan decided to jot down some information about some of the bands and albums we discussed. Enjoy!
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats (August 2015, Stax Records)
Two parts Rock & Roll, one part Gospel, one part Folk, topped with a healthy dose of brass and Blues is the ideal recipe for the cocktail to which we might just drink our lives away. Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats have created an album that is joyful, honest, and just a lot of fun to listen to. While the song “S.O.B.” may not be the truest representation of what Rateliff does (it was written as a joke), it is a great example of how this group can do no wrong. The song is undeniably catchy, and is brilliant in the way that the central joke, “If I can’t get clean, I’m going to drink my life away,” blurs the line between absurdity and reality. This self-titled album will keep you warm during some of the cold Winter nights ahead. Well, maybe this and a bottle of bourbon. Enjoy responsibly! Continue reading Music We Love – Edition 1
