Nuggets: The Trippiest Yet?
Episode date - May 19, 2023
If you’ve been following along with us through this series, then you already know that ‘Nuggets’ are about extremes: extreme distortion, extreme moods, extreme topics that are all intended to shatter the ‘square’ world.
This show may be the ‘extremiest’ yet. A lot of today’s songs are explicitly about drug culture. Some of these songs are so far out that they’re never coming back. As usual, though, we also have a few exceptions to this rule, with a few mellow pop songs that just barely qualify as bonafide Nuggets.
