In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy dive into Say Anything’s 2004 pop-punk classic …Is a Real Boy (and, technically, their 2006 build-on …Was a Real Boy). It’s an album that stands out from its own scene upon review, somewhat ironically given the album’s heavy criticism of the scene itself. Find out more about the cost and benefit of Max Bemis’ sprawling creativity and perfectionism over the band’s life, how the hosts – and Bemis himself – deal with some of the less flattering lyrical content 16 years later, and how Say Anything produced the unlikeliest of emo love songs on this week’s podcast.
