IDLES have made a big impression on the music world, gaining a reputation as one of the best live shows around. For their fifth album, “Tangk,” producer Nigel Godrich adds more gentle textures to their sound and coaxes melodic singing out of frontman Joe Talbot.

Mary Timony Untame the Tiger

Mary Timony has been in so many notable indie rock bands, including Wild Flag, Helium and Autoclave. “Untame The Tiger” is a rare project released under her own name. The album deals with loneliness following the death of her parents and the end of a romantic relationship.

Louise Post

This week, host Jim DeRogatis catches up with someone he has covered many times over the years: Louise Post of Veruca Salt. Her debut solo album “Sleepwalker” made a big impression on Jim as well as her desert rock project VEYLS.

Dear Listeners,

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
