Episode 053: MSG Ghosts of the Dead

In Episode 053 we discuss two standout jams from Phish’s 2018 New Year’s Eve Run at Madison Square Garden in New York City: "Tweezer" from December 29 and "Seven Below" from December 30. Two of the strongest jams from the four-night stand, and also two jams that very clearly touch on themes from one of the band’s biggest influences: The Grateful Dead.

Songs featured in this episode are: The Grateful Dead: "China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider" (5/19/74 & 12/29/77) and The Grateful Dead: "The Wheel" (12/5/81 & 3/18/90)

In addition we preview some new 2019 records we’re very excited for: Deerhunter: "Why Hasn’t Anything Already Disappeared?" (1/18), William Tyler: "Goes West" (1/25), Panda Bear: "Buyos" (2/8), Cass McCombs: "Tip Of The Sphere" (2/8), Vampire Weekend: "Mitsubishi Macchiato" (Unknown), Steve Gunn: "The Unseen In Between" (1/18), Sharon Van Etten: "Remind Me Tomorrow" (1/18), and Bob Mould: "Sunshine Rock" (2/8)
