The New Analog and the Latest from Neil Young

The New Analog and the Latest from Neil Young

In his book “The New Analog”, musician Damon Krukowski makes the case for the value of analog. We revisit our interview with Damon from a few years back. He talks with Jim and Greg about the necessity of analog “noise” in music and our everyday life.

Then, Jim and Greg review the latest release from Neil Young. Homegrown was recorded about 45 years ago but has just been released. Plus, they review the new record from the group Sault.
