This year, the genre-straddling Hawthorne, California rock band Redd Kross are celebrating 45 years as a band, and as such, founding brothers Jeff and Steve McDonald have been involved in a number of biographical projects including a memoir, Now You’re One Of Us (with author Dan Epstein), and director Andrew Reich’s career-spanning documentary, Born Innocent: The Redd Kross Story.

Last year, The Lemon Twigs' Brian & Michael D'Addario made their RSD Podcast debut to talk about one of the best albums of 2023, Everything Harmony. Exactly one year later, they're back with a brand new album, A Dream Is All We Know, recorded mostly by themselves at their Brooklyn studio, except for one track on which they collaborated with Sean Ono Lennon at his studio in upstate New York.

English/Irish composer and arranger Sean O'Hagan (Microdisney, Stereolab) is perhaps best known as the visionary behind The High Llamas, whose second album Gideon Gaye (1994) blended a healthy respect for the harmonic tableaus of both Brian Wilson and Steely Dan with a delicate UK pop sound reminiscent of his contemporaries such as Prefab Sprout. On the brand new High Llamas album, Hey Panda, (featuring guests including Fryars, and Bonny "Prince" Billy) O'Hagan has been absorbing many of the production tricks of contemporary hip-hip records from the likes of Tyler The Creator or Solange, while retaining most of the melodic tendencies that first endeared High Llamas' fans to his music. As you'll hear, O'Hagan cares deeply about keeping his ear to the ground for the new while honoring the past. It's a great conversation.  And Record Store Day co-founder Carrie Colliton returns after a highly successful Record Store Day 2024.  The Record Store Day Podcast is written, produced, engineered and hosted by Paul Myers, who also composed the theme music and selected interstitial music.
