And we’re back!
Season 3 kicks off with a two-part conversation with filmmaker and longtime friend Matthew McCoy about the possibly forgotten pop-rock band Counting Crows.
While sheltering in place, we challenged ourselves to create a listenable album of Counting Crows songs using only tracks recorded since This Desert Life, as we try to answer the question… could we even do it? And if so, was it worth it? Are the Counting Crows a once-brilliant band in steep decline, or have they somehow, actually, figured it all out?
Does the band warrant this kind of deep-dive, some 25 years or more since their hit single, “Mr. Jones”? Probably not, but what is The A440 Podcast about if not obsessively geeking about about some kind of forgotten corner of the music universe?
