In this week's raucous new installment, our intrepid gang of musical voyagers takes yet another trip across the pond to dive into an album that helped turn a U.K. pop wunderkind into a multi-faceted musical icon, 1985's Hounds of Love, the fifth album by Kate Bush. Almost entirely self-produced and catering as much to herself as it did to her record label, this album is a masterclass in duality, purposeful contradiction, having your cake and eating it too. Topics discussed include (but are not limited to): accessible artistry, musical siblings, Laurie Anderson, concept albums, etc.
