Below The Waste Goat Girl

Goat Girl Below the Waste

Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot review the new album from British post-punks Goat Girl, “Below The Waste.” Though their sound and approach have changed since their previous album, “On All Fours,” the experimental spirit is the same and delivers another album well worth listening to.



Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot interview two members of the Irish post-punk band Sprints: singer Karla Chubb and drummer Jack Callan. Though they’ve only released one album, Sprints appeared near the top of both Jim and Greg’s midyear best albums lists.

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!
