The newest episode of The Modern Vinyl Podcast is all about Childish Gambino’s new record, “Awaken, My Love!”. We talk the funk comparisons (or funk rip off), fatherhood and its effect on structure, and some of our favorite songs.

Our Side B is a round of Best Stretch, in which we look for the best 3-4 song sequence of Weezer’s career.
