EP. 63: Play ball! 2021

Baseball szn 2021 is here! Let's celebrate America's pastime w/ emo and punk songs that speak all things PLAY BALL.

Photo highlight, my excessively expensive vintage Yo La Tengo tee. Did you know Yo La Tengo's name comes from an epic 1960s New York Mets anecdote? Listen for full story.

New trax from Diners, Whiner, Raw Plastic and Snowhore.
