CAKE & The Waiting

Episode 121

Aaron and Brent both highlight music from groups that got their start in 1991 but in two different genres.

With guitar driven songs featuring clever songwriting and introspective lyrics, Aaron looks at three songs from the Atlanta-based band The Waiting.

Led by singer John McCrea‘s deadpan vocal delivery while incorporating elements of funk, pop, jazz, rap, and country, Brent spotlights three from the Sacramento band CAKE.
