Welcome to Surface Noise 2.0, the new, re-tooled version of your favorite music and vinyl podcast. By popular demand, we’ve brought back enigmatic host Richard Feliciano and paired him with a new co-host: podcast veteran and emo scholar Dan Gorman (See You Next Wednesday). Together, the ‘Noise Boys’ dive into the latest in indie music, vinyl recommendations, and topic-based roundtable discussion.

On today’s episode, Dan and Rich tackle the timely topic of albums that feature a musical left turn for a band. We focus on pop-punk band Paramore’s new, surprisingly ’80s-influenced release ‘After Laughter’ and explore some other notable examples of bands who changed their sound, including your listener suggestions from social media. Did we miss your favorite ‘left turn’ record? Reach out to us on Twitter/Instagram at @surfacenoisepod (Richard) and @yckmd_ (Dan) or send us an email at richard@surfacenoisepod.com.
