Matt, Glenn, and Tim inaugurate a new series in this episode of the Strange Currencies Podcast. “Runt of the Litter” focuses on neglected albums from respected artists in an attempt to rescue the reputations of some potential lost gems. This installment finds the hosts tackling a particularly fascinating phenomena: mid-career albums that beg the question, “what the fuck?”
Matt Ryan founded Strange Currencies Music in January 2020, and remains the site's editor-in-chief. The creator of the "A Century of Song" project and co-host of the "Strange Currencies Podcast," Matt enjoys a wide variety of genres, but has a particular affinity for 60s pop, 90s indie rock, and post-bop jazz. He is an avid collector of vinyl, and a multi-instrumentalist who has played/recorded with several different bands and projects.
