Jim and Greg talk with Galaxie 500’s Damon Krukowski about the value of analog listening in an increasingly digital world. They’ll also review new albums from Neil Young (Homegrown) and the mysterious Sault album Untitled (Black Is).
Neil Young has released the album Homegrown after shelving it in 1975 before releasing Tonight’s The Night instead.
Sault is a prolific new group with an air of mystery around them. Untitled (Black Is) is their third album in 13 months. Jim and Greg agree it is great.

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
