Hope For The American Soul With Zama Rripa: Sounds Like Liberty - Episode 20

October 31, 2018


In today's episode Nicky P & Lizzie examine the 90’s party banger Doo Wop (That Thing) by Lauryn Hill. We feel like this one is especially prescient considering al the hubbub Kanye has been getting in for his critiques of his culture. Nothing new if you ask us.


This week in I Heard This Happened: pirate kids songs & more sad bastard music.


Nicky’s album this week is Sea Songs For Little Pirates by Jason Andre. Perhaps a break with character since it’s usually Lizzie bringing the kid’s songs, but I this was a last minute saving grace find. There’s a claim it’s even educational but really we’re just in it for the Args.


Lizzie per usual found us more of that sad bastard music she seems to love so much. Her choice this week is Ennui by Animal Sounds. While very in vein sonically this one does break character with the addition of some out of character bluesy guitar.


This week's interview is with Zama Rripa a musician bringing the liberty, love and peace with his newest record American Soul. We had a grand time talking about music and life and Mises with a very conscious and well read musician.
