The gentlemen from Memphis combine Southern rock, funk and a little Ska with touches of Dust Brothers production.

It's Tim's turn to make a pick, and this one brings the first big disagreement of the 2013 season as we tackle the sophomore album from Big Ass Truck, 1996's Kent. The gentlemen from Memphis combine Southern rock, funk and a little Ska with touches of Dust Brothers production ala the Beastie Boys and Beck. It's definitely an acquired taste, and one host did not acquire it. Can you guess who?
