Holly Mullineaux of Goat Girl

Goat Girl On All Fours

The second album from Goat Girl, On All Fours, is one of Jim and Greg’s favorites of 2021. They talk with the group’s bassist, Holly Mullineaux, about dealing with a bandmate’s illness, diagnosed just before COVID hit and just after they finished recording the album. She also comments on the state of punk music today and how she balances her political stances with carving out a space in the music industry.

Voyage ABBA

ABBA Voyage

After 40 years, Swedish pop superstars ABBA have released a new album, Voyage. Jim and Greg are huge fans of ABBA’s chart-topping hits of the 1970s, but can their new effort capture that same magic?

Dear Listeners,

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!
