All told, David Bowie is probably one of the three most important and influential solo artists to come out of the 1970s. That's the premise of the ninth episode from season one of the Records & Riffs podcast. The guest? Bomani Jones, most known for his comprehensive commentary on sports, is also well-versed in many a music topic. His opinions strike a spectrum of emotions in readers, listeners to his radio show, his litany of Twitter followers and hate-followers, but Jones is undeniably qualified to gab on music and to do it for long periods at a time.

In Bowie, Bomani details what made his work vital, how he is singular in the world of music, and what records are the go-tos. Never gotten into Bowie's stuff? We understand why that might be, but this podcast details exactly why you should give it a closer listen. There are many phases to Bowie, and chances are at least one of his 26 studio LPs will find its way to an enjoyable cul-de-sac in your brain. With Bowie, the appreciation seems to be waning just a bit, so listen and acquaint yourself with the strange and aesthetic world that is the music of Bowie.
