Relevant Content is a bi-weekly podcast for Aux.Out. in which hosts Will Ryan (Beats Per Minute, Diffuser) and Philip Cosores (Director of Aux.Out., Paste Magazine) discuss topical issues with guest industry experts and personalities. Sometimes there is yelling. Always there is talking over one another. And, hopefully, there is a greater understanding of the complexities of the music world that one mind alone may not be able to fully capture in an essay.
This week Will and Phil didn’t get a chance to celebrate their victory against Rock the Bells (in seriousness, we’re sorry for anybody that is disappointed by the cancellations, but with the strength 0f the bill, any problem that they had in ticket sales has to cause a hard look at how their festival operates). What was discussed were bands of the 90’s like Counting Crows and Dave Matthews Band, and just how they are reassessed after 20 years. Phil also found a way to talk about Okkervil River, again. Joining the podcast is David Greenwald (Billboard, The Oregonian).
