Jim and Greg review the new album from country superstar Miranda Lambert and friends Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, The Marfa Tapes. It’s a stripped-down, casual recording that lets the songs shine.
The hosts review the debut album, If I Could Make It Go Quiet, by Norwegian indie pop artist girl in red. It’s her first full length album, six years after posting her first music online.

The guys talk with Rob Bowman about his book,
The Last Soul Company: The Malaco Records Story. Bowman details the unlikely twists and turns that got Malaco to the point of being the longest-running independent label in American history.

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!
