It’s super trendy to hate the Dave Matthews Band. For those that are my age, DMB was popular when we were in high school or college. The band represents — for many — youthful indescretions and poor taste.

My favorite band for quite a few years, I feel that the Dave Matthews Band is, as they say, Unjustly Maligned.

Antony Johnston asked me to join him on his podcast about defending the indefensible. We focused largely on the album Before These Crowded Streets (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify), but discuss all factors of Dave Matthews Band.

While today you’re far more likely to catch me listening to MUTEMATH or something downtempo, you can join me as I get nostalgic and defensive about my first musical love.
