Episode 434: The Hold Steady's 'Thrashing Thru The Passion'

Season 9, Ep. 434

On their seventh album (and first in five years) The Hold Steady isn’t so much “We’re BACK mother****ers!” as they are “Alright. Alright. Alllllright”-ing their way back into our hearts.

Thrashing Thru The Passion finds the band sporting a slightly looser and expanded sound (horns!) and songwriter Craig Finn’s druggy, party-filled universe, a little older, a little beat down, but no less full of life. Join us as we dig into all of the good, bad, and magical highs found on the “return” of one of America’s most celebrated bands.

Plus! Washington, D.C.’s Broke Royals new LP Saint Luxury is a power-pop gem about asking the BIG questions and understanding that none of us have all of the answers. Fans of Dawes, Springsteen, and The Hold Steady step right this way and check out the title track of one of the best albums out of the nation’s capital this year!
