Music is one of the most fundamental parts of life. So why isn't anyone talking about it that way?
Every Sunday, Sean and Dan deliver your no-B.S. look at the week in music: what everyone is listening to, what everyone should be listening to, and all of the news, reviews, and commentary in between.
Dan is a video journalist and producer by day, and naturally, uses music as escapism from the daily hustle. He comes from a long line of musicians, and plays almost 10 instruments (though never on command). Sean is a semi-pro triathlete who, when not running, swimming, or cycling the world in spandex, can be found in front of his piano playing classical concertos. His mind is a vast collection of information on all things music, Formula 1, and anti-neoliberal snark.
