This week: the Decibel Boost Podcast crosses the 5-year-mark, choosing to commemorate the occasion by… recapping the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards… because this is the most uneventful birthday possible, apparently. But before the crew snarks about the pointlessness of this entire variety show, there is a bit of new music to be discusses from BadBadNotGood, Maxo Kream feat. Tyler the Creator, Emma Ruth Rundle, Worship, and even the return of Mastodon with new material.
Your hosts this week are Robert (@RobBarracuda), Alex (@AuraOfAzure), and Mark (@MAK2HybridMedia). Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
