It's not often that you come across a song that seemingly transcends time and space when performed by two different artists. It's even more interesting when those two artists are on the complete opposite ends of the musical spectrum. You might be wondering what the hell I am even talking about, and before you swerve off the road in a podcast rage, let me explain.

In 1994 Trent Reznor and his band Nine Inch Nails would relea...

**SPECIAL EPISODE ALERT** This episode is a special solo effort from Russ being released on June13th for a very specifc reason. All information and messaging within this episode is approved and endorsed by Kyle & Michelle, but the topic is sensitive enough to where we thought it was best to be handled as a solo, informational piece.

Over the course of this episode, we hope you learn something new regarding the news stories that ...

Well now that spring has sprung and we've moved on to 85-degree temps with 70% humidity, things are starting to stick to one another, so we thought it would be fitting to talk about our favorite summer songs that go along with our favorite summer activities.

Summer is not only a season but also a mental state. It could be 40 degrees and rainy but when you throw on that specific song, you're immediately transported to a sunn...

Season 6 is rolling and we're back with another one of our famous or well if you're Michelle, "infamous" album reviews. This week Russ decided to throw a hail mary and pick something he thought for sure everyone would love.

Hailing from Australia is a little band that you might have heard about at some point in your music listening career. Shoving their way into the music industry all the way back in 1977. Initially...

As we continue to Humpty Dance our way into season 6, your favorite musical tripod has decided to do something a little different and add a new themed episode into the rotation of episodes you've grown to know and love.

Covers, covers, covers, and we're not talking karaoke. You love em', you hate em', and so do we. It seems like covers go back as far as your favorite songs do. Artists have been covering one another...

DISCLAIMER: Before diving headfirst into this episode, it is recommended that you go back and listen to the episodes that we dedicated solely to 1984 and 1991. But hey, if you want to be confused, and listen to this episode first, by all means, you do you.

After reading the title of this episode, you might be thinking "hey I thought this was a music podcast", and you are correct, it most certainly is. Truth be told music in...

AND WE'RE BACK! Man, that seemed like the longest between-season break ever, but lucky for you, we're back and better than ever. This season (season 6 a.k.a season 3 or 4 if you ask Michelle) is going to be another killer ride. We're starting this one off strong with our critically acclaimed album review series that you've all mostly grown to love.

This time it's Kyle who went the extra mile and plugged us in wit...

DISCLAIMER: This episode contains potential spoilers that involve two separate documentaries about the events that unfolded at a particular music festival (that never actually happened). It is advised that you go and check out "Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened" on Netflix and "Fyre Fraud" on Hulu. By doing so, it will loop you into this entire episode so you're not sitting there confused like Michell...

From time to time here at Infectious Groove, we run across a particular artist or group that puts so much time and effort into a project that you can't help but fall in love with it. When time and effort are a top priority it becomes obvious just how far a carefully crafted album can take you.
Couple that with mastering the art of live performance, and you have an undeniable package that most artists only dream of. These guys m...

When it comes to a song, the only person that truly knows exactly what the song is about is the songwriter themselves, but that never stops us from not only filling in our own lyrics, but also trying to wholeheartedly decipher the songs meaning all together. We try, we try again, and we often fail.
It's okay, we're going to keep this one short and sweet so you can get back to attempting to sing along to that Pearl Jam song...

It's that time again where we let you the listener choose an album, we listen, and then we tell you what we think. Honestly, this has become one of our favorite parts of the show. More often than not, we end up listening to something we otherwise might have passed up, and sometimes Michelle even finds something new to put into her rotation (which is a win-win for everyone).

The eighties were a special time in music history, and ...

If it seems like the music industry is more crowded than ever, and that's because when it comes down to it, compared to other times throughout music history, it really is. Much of this is due to how we consume music now (thanks streaming platforms), or how the industry's labels no longer have a stranglehold on who and what we all hear (thanks Obama, I mean the internet).

It would appear that it's easier than ever to get...

From time to time, a new album comes along and becomes so popular that it almost forces itself into the culture whether they like it or not. It's almost like it becomes part of our air supply and no matter where you turn, hearing it, is unavoidable. I know a million and one albums probably come to mind when thinking about it, and this particular album is no different.

Some Nights is the second full album offered up by American p...

Disclaimer: This is a two-part episode, and it is recommended that you go back and start with part one before diving into this episode.

When talking about the chronological history of music and its importance, more often than not a few years, in particular, will come up. Though all music history and the timeline overall are extremely important there are a few periods that absolutely stand out and outshine the rest.

When talking about the chronological history of music and its importance, more often than not a few years, in particular, will come up. Though all music history and the timeline overall are extremely important there are a few periods that absolutely stand out and outshine the rest.

1984 is one of those years.

When you hear the name Kanye West, a million different people are bound to have a million different thoughts and opinions. Kanye is no stranger to controversy and being in the media headlines, and though that is where he currently is hanging out (and where he often finds himself, whether he likes it or not), this episode is about so much more than that—in fact, this episode has nothing to do with the Kanye you're hearing about ...

DISCLAIMER: This episode contains spoilers. If you have not seen "That Thing You Do!" it is recommended that you check out the movie before heading into this episode. If you don't care, then by all means carry on my wayward son.

It's not often we dive into movies, and usually, when we do it's because they directly relate to music, or we simply just enjoy the film itself—or both, well yeah pretty much always both,...

If you're not familiar with the name Kelly Clarkson, there is a large chance that you either live in a cave somewhere or possibly deep in the foothills of West Virginia. For the rest of you, hearing that name probably makes you think one of a few things. If I had to guess, your first thought was when Steve Carell was having his body waxed in that scene from The 40 Year Old Virgin, and yells out her name as a defense mechanism t...

From time to time our episodes aren't planned ahead of time, and the ideas pop up from things that might happen in our daily lives.

This is one of those episodes.

"Grampa Kyle" seemed to have blown a musical gasket a few weeks back when he heard the new single from one of his favorite rappers. After a fury of messages, examples of old videos, and a bunch of gibberish sounding like an old man that just realized Neil Young...

Well, we've made it around the album review circle again, and we are once again throwing it off to one of our loyal listeners. This week, Mike from Chicago (better known as Chicago Mike) caught us all off guard with something we'd never heard before. Hell, this might have even been something we didn't even know existed until now.

It's always fascinating when you thought you were pretty familiar with a band and it tu...
