Music Commentary

Dan Hanzus and Bob Castrone love listening to music- almost as much as they love hanging out in a garage and talking about it. On The Throwback Podcast, lifelong friends revisit important albums from their past and go through them–track by track– with fresh ears. From the classics to the cringeworthy, every week is a throwback.


Dan and Bob dial it back to 2004 and the release of “More Adventurous”, the third full-length from Los Angeles' own Rilo Kiley. The Throwback Pod loves Jenny Lewis as much as Jenny Lewis hates George W. Bush. That's a lot.

Dan and Bob dial it back to 2001 to ruminate on musicforthemorningafter, the debut album from New Jersey rock troubadour Pete Yorn. Why wasn't Yorn a bigger star? Is it better that he wasn't? How does one acquire Pete Yorn's glorious hair? And did Dan's post-concert bar tab in Atlantic City expose a fatal flaw in the service industry? So many questions.

What happened if you didn't believe in Fred Durst in 1999? If you thought Scott Stapp was a false idol? If Korn sounded like a practical joke? Well, if you were Bob and Dan you might have strayed into the arms of a young and handsome British pop star named Robbie Williams. Temporarily, anyway.
