For the final Love That Album episode of 2011, my special guest, Julian Gillis, and I discuss our fave albums of the year and then shoot the shit about Matthew Sweet’s two brilliant slices of power pop, “Girlfriend” and “Altered Beast”. These albums are musically sunny and lyrically overcast. There’s some complex stuff going on in Matthew’s head. Does he have stalker tendencies? What is his interest in Caligula? All this and more to be discussed. Plus a musical surprise from The Ice Haloes.

Happy holidays everyone, and thanks for your support this year in both blog entries and podcasts.
