On this week’s episode of Space Case, it’s our annual Grammys reactions and predictions episode! This past week the nominations dropped and like every year, we pick our hopeful winners and compare that to who we ACTUALLY think will win.

On this week’s episode of Space Case, are we a sophomore slump? Or are we comeback kid of the year? YOU DECIDE! You guessed it, we’re discussing what it means for an artist to have a “sophomore slump.” Usually, a sophomore slump describes what happens when a successful artist has a hit first album that is then followed up by a commercial or critical failure. This can also be the case with a release in an artists’ discography that just so happens to be right after their most successful release to date. We discuss criteria for this classification and give some examples of famous sophomore slumps. In turn, we also countdown some of our favorite sophomore SLAMS or albums that we think were an even better follow up to their previous release.

In your opinion, what’s your pick for WORST sophomore slumps? OR your favorite sophomore SLAMS?

Heavy title? Don’t let it fool you, it’s fun! Every year we do AT LEAST one big episode about music and what it’s like to make it etc. So for this year’s offering, we wanted to go BIG (at least for the title) We wanted to check in and hear (from people besides ourselves) about what it’s like to make AND consume music right here and right now in 2021. First, we chat with music reviewer, pop culture commentator, podcaster, and TikTok ICON Pablo, The Don about music journalism and reviewing music with stan culture and the artists themselves at the READY to attack. THEN, we hang with Sarah from California synth pop band TRANSVIOLET about making music, staying creative, and TOURING this past year to today. Let us know your thoughts after you listen! We wanna keep the discussion going!
