I have been enjoying this nice listen, with the guy who is the producer on Chapo* and a woman who I get the feeling is his partner. It’s pretty enjoyable, they do good research and some of the guests are good.
The Steve Albini episode has an interesting discussion of his particular edgelord persona, and the Rick Rubin episode benefits from having an actual real life producer who gives some very interesting insights into the Industry (who knew Artpop by lady GaGa was one of the biggest financial failures in the music industry?)
*. NB. This is not like that podcast so don’t be put off
Some funny ones from Slash and some industry type guy who tells people working on his house a nuclear weapon was dropped on NYC. Plus they go into some of the reactions catalogued in the ‘Meet Me in the Bathroom’ book
Spoilers because donars not to ruin the episode if you want to experience it fresh Also the video for Limp Bizkits ‘Rollin’ won a VMA for best music video on September 10th 2001 (video prominently features WTC).
Just recently discovered this great one for people whoa re well into film music:
The There Will Be Blood one was brilliant, but I’m loving all the John Williams stuff too. Also the Batman one on Danny Elfman’s score. Just three very knowledgable and likeable guys talking about great music, how it’s put together and why it works. My bag.
have you heard ‘the soundtrack show’ too? just done a 3 parter on the zelda series. I don’t really understand chords and theory stuff particularly well but him talking about chord progressions and how they work makes my brain happy. pretty sporadic uploading but I’m delighted when there’s a new one.
can’t find a post i made before about Kim Noble’s podcast, Futile Attempts (At Surviving Tomorrow). listened to the first episode last year and found it funny but incredibly awkward with second hand embarrassment from the things he puts himself through.
only finally picked up from episode 2 a couple of weeks ago and i’m enjoying it a lot, and it hasn’t been quite as uncomfortable as the first one. i’m on episode 6 now (out of 10), particularly enjoyed the ep where he tries to meet Sting to ask him how to be good at sex.
