The Weekly Music Discussion Thread Flips The Record

Let’s discuss any and all music here. You’ve got a new artist who’s rocking your boat that you want to talk about? Post a video! Found out about that unearthed Coltrane album that has the jazz freak in you losing your mind? Lay it out for us! Do you have a theory about what your favorite band might do for their next album? Let’s hear it! Anything and everything music-related goes here.

This week’s prompt: B-Sides.

No, not bees… B’s! The bonus song. The out-take. The remix. I first discovered the concept of the B-side by way of The Cure’s Standing on the Beach cassette. There was a whole surprise record on the B-side of the tape and they were all great. It was a light bulb moment and got me checking out the singles bin for all those bonus tracks.

What are your favorite B-sides? When and what was your B-side epiphany? Which acts do ya think consistently make quality B-sides? Let us know. Or just share your latest jams. And as always, rock out with yr guac out.
