Yeah look it's a bit of a weird one this week. All good, Myf Warhurst and Zan Rowe make sense of it for you as per. The Queen's funeral has taken place and in amongst the meticulously planned ceremony, some outlier events have all of us talking. Yes, we're referring to the spider, and that bit of paper on the ground. The end of this long period of mourning, respect, and reflection has been felt in different ways across different communities. Stan Grant's brilliant and heartbreaking editorial for ABC News asks us to consider how the past two weeks has felt for those who were colonised by the Crown. Meanwhile high in a Collins Street skyscraper in Melbourne, a hectic love triangle is playing out and only one will survive. Myf wraps up the Peregrine Falcon drama playing out for all to see. And fans of the original Serial podcast; we have an update on the case of Adnan Syed. Mariah Carey revealed she once recorded a grunge album when she unveiled her brilliant biography a couple of years ago. Now she's planning on releasing it with new vocals to the world. And speaking of things we didn't see coming, Nick Cave and Brad Pitt are just like us: they've been doing pottery during lockdown and have something to show for it. We go inside their ceramics exhibition in a Finnish gallery. Told you. Wild week. Myf is banging on about a great read from one of our fave writers Brigid Delaney, while Zan is lapping up the brilliant new Björk podcast which unpacks her whole back catalogue of albums.

Are you ready to build a better world? How do we dig ourselves out of this hyper-individualistic hole? When it comes to cultivating a mindset that focuses on serving the collective alongside the individual, there is no one better to talk to than Yancey Stricker. Yancey is the co-founder of Kickstarter and the creator of the strategic decision-making method, Bentoism, which offers an alternative approach to making decisions that mindfully consider our current self, the people around us, our future selves, and the people we will be surrounded by in the future. In this episode of #YAPClassic, Yancey and Hala talked about the components of Bentoism and how to use to make more informed decisions in any scenario. They discuss Kickstarter's come-up story and why they initially had trouble getting investors on board. He described what it was like to co-found Kickstarter with no business experience and how that led to imposter syndrome. They also talk about the dangers of embracing financial maximization, The Bento Society, and Yancey's predictions for the next several years of our society. Topics Include: - Yancey's experience getting bullied -Yancey's early career as a writer -Where the idea for Kickstarter began -Co-founding Kickstarter with no business experience -Imposter syndrome -What is a PBC? -Financial maximization -Other ways to measure business success -Roles models and their effects on society -The characteristics of Bentoism -The Bento Society -How Telsa embodies the “future us” mindset Yancey Strickler is an author, entrepreneur, and creator of Bentoism. He co-founded Kickstarter in 2009 with Perry Chen and Charles Adler. He also co-founded Metalabel and the artist resource The Creative Independent. Yancey began his career as a music critic writing for Pitchfork, Spin, and The Village Voice, and he later created the record label eMusic Selects. Yancey has a lot of ideas on improving the world by realigning our motives to better serve the world around us and how we can measure value and success with metrics other than profit. He's also the author of This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World, which outlines how we built this hyper-individualistic society and how we can change course.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for September 2, 2022 is: grandiose gran-dee-OHSS adjective Grandiose is most often used disapprovingly to describe something that seems impressive or is intended to be impressive, but is either not possible or practical. // The committee eventually scaled back the most outlandish parts of its plans for the festival, including a grandiose scheme to bring in live peacocks for the event. See the entry > Examples: “Dave says their engineer had ‘grandiose ideas about wanting to make songs sound like Phil Spector,' but the group steered the sound in a more austere direction, inspired by the first two Strokes albums, along with grungier records by Sheer Mag and fellow Aussies Royal Headache.” — Evan Minsker, Pitchfork, 7 Apr. 2022 Did you know? When it comes to bigness, there's grand and then there's grandiose. Both words can be used to describe something impressive in size, scope, or effect, but while grand may lend its noun a bit of dignity (i.e., “we had a grand time”), grandiose often implies a whiff of pretension. The difference between a grand plan for the city park and a grandiose one, for example, might be the difference between a tasteful fountain and a garden full of topiaries cut in the shapes of 19th century literary figures. So if you're choosing between the two, a helpful mnemonic might be that the extra letters in grandiose suggest that one's ideas, claims, promises, schemes, dreams—you get the idea—are a bit extra.
Some sound guys are assholes — and some sound guys are beloved low-key gods. Paul Massaro falls into the second category. This week we talk to the former Local H sound guy about his remarkable life working with Cheap Trick, Mastodon, Brazilian Girls, Paul Anka, Triplefastaction, Seam, and supervising the sound for the Pitchfork music festival. He also tells Scott's favorite story.
Interpol have honed their craft over 20 years since they ‘blasted' onto the scene in 2002 with Turn On The Bright Lights - another one of those infamous overnight successes (actually the culmination of five years of hard graft). The album received a 9.5 Pitchfork review, with music journalist Eric Carr expressing unobjective fandom with some pretty colourful adjectives:“Interpol's debut full-length is wrought with emotional disconnection and faded glory, epic sweep and intimate catharsis.”Indeed. Yet this band, somewhat badged over the years as art-rock, gloom-rock and what have you - has changed over 25 years - to the extent that The Other Side Of Make Believe surprised their immediate circle of friends, management, label, publishers. Interpol has seen almost every longevity trend this podcast has discovered: the much hyped yet long-in-coming debut, the adventure with major labels and global stardom (and then being dropped), the madness of the rock & roll lifestyle, the loss of a founding member (bassist Carlos Dengler left in 2009) and the realisation that the industry they are part of isn't all it's cracked up to be. Since Interpol came on the scene, everything about the music industry has changed, yet Interpol has built on a distinctive and sturdy brand. There is a sense of the collective unit about everything they do. As Daniel puts it: “I would bet on Paul and Sam as creative forces every time.”There are extended write-ups for all episodes at https://www.songsommelier.com/Support the show
Arcade Fire frontman and Indie Rock Paragon of Supposed Virtue Win Butler has been credibly accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple people.

Today, I'm having a GAS with Shawn Everett, a six-time Grammy Award-winning producer and mix engineer. I genuinely believe that Shawn is one of the architects of the sound of pop music between 2010 and 2020. Not that his career ends in 2020, just to say that the huge, deep, wide and saturated sound of that decade is certainly exemplified by his productions. -- After graduating high school, Everett was accepted as a Work-Study participant in the Audio program in Music & Sound at The Banff Centre, Alberta. He took the opportunity to immerse himself in unconventional audio practices over the following four years, experimenting in the campus studios and working on sonic installations. Everett relocated to Los Angeles in 2005 and expanded his industry network through producer Eric Valentine. He began engineering for producer Tony Berg, former A&R executive for Geffen Records and Virgin Music. Hailed in 2017 by Pitchfork as “indie rock's new go-to sound engineer”, Shawn Everett has infused his creative flair into records by a multitude of renowned artists including Weezer, John Legend, Phantom Planet, Blake Mills, Perfume Genius, Haim, Warpaint, Grizzly Bear, The Killers, and Beck. -- Having a GAS™ is the podcast that talks to the great and the good of the creative industries, and in particular finds out what makes great music for film, for TV, for advertising; for dancing to, for cooking to, f*cking to, and more... -- GAS™ Music is a music production agency in Manchester, UK. We compose and produce original music, create awe inspiring sound design and have a fully integrated audio post-production studio. We also have a great record collection, and welcome any additions, recommendations or criticisms. -- http://www.gasismusic.co.uk -- © GAS™ Music 2022

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for August 12, 2022 is: melancholia mel-un-KOH-lee-uh noun Melancholia refers to a feeling of sadness or depression. It is also used to refer to a sad tone or quality that one perceives in something, such as a work of art or literature. // He confessed to a bit of melancholia after the final performance—although he was proud of the successful Broadway run, he would miss his fellow cast members dearly. See the entry > Examples: “His last single, 2020's 'Finding Rest In a Weary World,' was impressive but relatively subdued, tinged with ambient melancholia even as the beat hit its stride.” — Sue Park, Pitchfork, 18 Mar. 2022 Did you know? When is a word full of humor yet far from humorous? Melancholia traces back to Greek melan- ("black, dark") and cholē ("bile"). Medical practitioners once adhered to the system of humors—bodily fluids that included black bile, yellow bile, blood, and phlegm. An imbalance of these humors was thought to lead to disorders of the mind and body. One suffering from an excess of black bile (believed to be secreted by the kidneys or spleen) could become sullen, unsociable, and liable to depression. Today, doctors no longer ascribe physical and mental disorders to disruptions of the four humors, but the word melancholia is still used in psychiatry as a general term for despondency.
Nabil Ayers has been part of the music scene in many capacities: musician, record-label creator, band manager, music executive, and founder of Seattle's Sonic Boom Records. He is also an author, writing about music and race for the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and many others. Now Ayers has written a new memoir, My Life in the Sunshine: Searching for My Father and Discovering My Family, about his relationship with his father, Black jazz musician Roy Ayers; being a mixed-race person in the United States; and his work in the music industry. While Ayers' famous musician father was rarely present in his life, he still turned out to be a strong influence, showing up in Ayers' love of music and his eclectic career in the music industry. Motivated by his father's absence, Ayers researched and connected with other extended family members and discovered the existence of several half-siblings, as well as a paternal ancestor who was enslaved. Following these new family connections, Nabil meets and befriends the descendant of the plantation owner, which strangely paves the way for him to make meaningful connections with other extended family he never knew existed. In conversation with KEXP's Cheryl Waters, Ayers discusses his drive to understand his roots and redraw the lines that define family and race. Nabil Ayers has written about race and music for The New York Times, NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and GQ. Ayers is the President of Beggars Group US, where he has run campaigns for The National, Big Thief, Grimes, Future Islands and St. Vincent, as well as reissue campaigns including Pixies' album Doolittle which was certified Platinum in 2019. At age 25, Ayers and his business partner opened Seattle's Sonic Boom Records store, which they sold to a longtime customer in 2016. As a drummer Ayers has performed in several bands including The Long Winters and Tommy Stinson. On his own record label, The Control Group/Valley of Search, Ayers has released music by Cate Le Bon, Lykke Li, The Killers, PJ Harvey, Patricia Brennan, and his uncle, the jazz musician Alan Braufman. Ayers lives with his wife in Brooklyn, NY.

This week on Every Rom Com we’re discussing the music and the misery of “High Fidelity” with Courtney E. Smith, author of the 2011 book Record Collecting For Girls and host of the podcast “Songs in The Key Of Death.” We discuss John Cusack and Nick Hornby, memorable breakups on and off screen, and a whole lot of music! Courtney gives her picks for the top 5 rom com soundtracks, lays out some mixtape-making wisdom, and reviews your picks for best breakup songs! It’s an intersection of music nerds, film nerds, and feminists that you won’t want to miss! 0:00-16:06 Introducing Our Guest, Courtney E. Smith, Author Of Record Collecting For Girls; Courtney’s Top 5 Romantic Comedy Soundtracks Follow our guest Courtney E. Smith on Twitter @courtneyesmith or on Instagram @thecourtneyesmith. And be sure to check out her podcast, Songs in the Key of Death anywhere you get your podcasts! Courtney E. Smith is the author of RECORD COLLECTING FOR GIRLS (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2011), a music critic, and a recovering music industry gatekeeper. She began her career at MTV, quickly moving into the music programming department and yelling at everyone about indie rock until they listened and agreed to play it. She feels very lucky that worked out. While at MTV, Smith was the label rep for all the indie record labels in the known universe and programmed the only national indie rock video show, MTV2’s Subterranean. She also co-helmed the music programming for mtvU, the college music network, as well as creating their video award show, The Woodies. Since transitioning to music journalism and criticism, Smith has since been published by Billboard, Pitchfork, Salon, No Depression, Yahoo, and in a screed for Lenny Letter about the Rock Hall’s lack of women nominees that launched trend pieces in the New York Times and People, and caused Steve Miller, a curmudgeon rock star, to yell at the whole place that they needed to stop ignoring women. The trend has continued at every induction ceremony since. She’s been an editor and staff writer for CBS’s Radio.com and at Refinery29. At the latter, she made so much noise covering the Grammys and their mishandling of #MeToo and representation for women that the Recording Academy hired a crisis PR firm to handle her. Her coverage of the lack of representation for women at country radio caused tongues to wag all over Nashville and earned her a spot contributing an essay to WOMAN WALK THE LINE (UT Press, 2017). Presently, she’s the editor of Eater Dallas and yes, she will give you a food recommendation on request. Smith is the host and writer of the po

Jeff Parker is a guitarist and composer, famous for his jazz session work and his contributions to the Chicago band Tortoise. After his performance at Pitchfork Fest in July 2022, he returned home and took a call from his home studio from features co-director Mick R. They talked about his performance at Pitchfork and chatted about the origins and creation of his 2021 solo album, Forfolks. It's a wonderful and warm conversation that we hope you'll enjoy. "The New Breed was a kind of posthumous tribute to my father. Suite for Max Brown was the kind of tribute to my mom, who's still around. And Forfolks is for all of us. It's for the folks." - Jeff Parker Produced by Mick R. Image: Courtesy of Artist.

Sudan Archives is a singer, songwriter, producer, and violinist. She grew up in Cincinnati before moving to LA. Her music has been called "viscerally gorgeous" by The Guardian, and "stunning" by Pitchfork, who gave her in ‘Best New Music.' This year, she's releasing her second album, and one of the tracks on it is "Selfish Soul." She told me the idea for this song started when she asked her boyfriend, James (who is the rapper Nocando) to shave her head. Cutting off her hair made her reflect on her whole hair story, from experiences she had as a kid, to the cultural and racial issues that have historically surrounded Black women's hair.

Craig Finn is a Minnesota-bred singer/songwriter based in New York City, best known as the singer of The Hold Steady. He joins Rhett to talk about his podcast, That's How I Remember It, which is about the connection between memory and creativity. Craig and Rhett discuss the inspiration behind the podcast as well as Craig's songwriting process, the importance of a band's first record, and why he feels that albums have ‘seasons'. Craig shares the tricks he uses every day to dispel anxiety, depression, and remove any self generated obstacles. Finn spent the '90's leading Minneapolis indie band Lifter Puller, which released 3 albums and an EP. After relocating to New York, he joined with Lifter Puller member Tad Kubler to form The Hold Steady in 2003. The Hold Steady quickly achieved critical acclaim and a worldwide fanbase with their unique pairing of dense lyrical narratives with big rock guitars. Pitchfork has described Finn as “a born storyteller, who has chosen rock as his medium.” When performing his solo material live, Craig Finn is joined by a dynamic group of musicians called The Uptown Controllers.Craig's latest album, A Legacy Of Rentals, is available now. Wheels Off is brought to you by Osiris Media. Hosted and produced by Rhett Miller. Co-produced by Kirsten Cluthe in partnership with Nick Ruffini (Revoice Media). Editing by Matt Dwyer.

Singer, songwriter, violinist, guitarist, whistler, glockenspielist, and actor (on Fargo), Andrew Bird, continues “his subversion of indie rock”, (-Schaefer) by including classical, folk, expansive violin solos, and old-time jazz; and has made a remarkable document of tilting at the windmills of his inner demons during these last few years of isolation and insularity. This latest record, 2022's Inside Problems, sees Bird once again as an entertaining thinker who can couch dark cultural commentary in joyfully buoyant pop songs, (he prefers this exercise in contrasts.) Especially entertaining is a counting/numbers song (in the vein of Schoolhouse Rock), “Eight”, which, he says, is his favorite number - and both this live version, and the album version of this song feature a pretty epic classic rock-length violin solo. As The Thinker, he invites us into getting literary with references to the late novelist and essayist Joan Didion (and related work by Irish poet William Butler Yeats), Greek mythology (Icarus and Orpheus), The Velvet Underground, and Beethoven. Interestingly, Bird says that rather than compartmentalizing the various musical genres and conservatory training experiences (“I spent…four years trying not to let them educate me”, Pitchfork), he says that he approaches riffs and melodies like folk music in the oral tradition, whether they are classical riffs of Ravel or Beethoven, old time music, Irish tunes, jazz standards, or Lou Reed/John Cale. So it makes perfect sense that when his internal jukebox kept spinning a piano reduction of Beethoven's Allegretto from the 7th Symphony, which he'd heard in the movie, Howard's End, he turned that riff into a bridge in his own song “Atomized.” Over the past few years, Andrew Bird has also taken up acting (Fargo), scored a Judd Apatow film, earned a Grammy nomination for My Finest Work Yet (2019), and continued his wide-ranging musical collaborations. Additionally, his work, “Hover”, was performed at the most recent 2022 Ojai Festival, in an early music instrument arrangement by Emi Ferguson (Artist Propulsion Lab Class of 2022). All this to say, we are excited and honored (ok, I am BEYOND EXCITED) that Andrew Bird plays remotely and chats about his new album for the Soundcheck Podcast. – Caryn Havlik Set list: “Eight”, “Atomized” “Make a Picture” Watch "Eight": Watch "Make a Picture":

Episode 167: What's your favorite 80's soundtrack? There are so many great ones out there, so Joe and Kari decided to take a look at some of the more obscure offerings. Cyndi Lauper's first movie role resulted in the song "Hole in My Heart"…does the song give you the Vibes? Vision Quest had some big hits, but it's also got overlooked gems from Don Henley and Sammy Hagar. Finally, the soundtrack for Ruthless People was packed full of superstars like Mick Jagger and Billy Joel, but the contributions from Dan Hartman and The Machinations deserve some love too. Number 167: Treblezine and Pitchfork ranked their Top 200 songs of the 80's. Number 167 on those lists come from LL Cool J and Yoko Ono. Were they ranked correctly?
[REBROADCAST FROM April 13, 2022] Maren Morris has dominated pop charts and been a member of the country supergroup The Highwomen. Pitchfork describes her latest solo album, Humble Quest, as "matter-of-factly masterful." Morris joins us for a Listening Party.
Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for July 3, 2022 is: teem TEEM verb To teem with something is to be full of that thing, or to have much of that thing inside. // The river teems with fish. // The students' minds were teeming with ideas. See the entry > Examples: "Emily Wells' orchestral pop teems with grandly despairing gestures—synth tones as thick and black as crude oil, woodwinds like fluttering wings in the upper reaches of a condemned building." — Jayson Greene, Pitchfork, 21 Apr. 2022 Did you know? Teem and team are not just homophones, they are also etymological kin. Teem comes from Old English tīman or tǣman, which originally meant "to bring forth offspring" or "to give birth to.” That word is related to the ancestor of team, the Old English noun tēam, meaning "offspring, lineage, or group of draft animals." Team can still be used to refer to a brood of young animals, especially pigs or ducks, but both teem and team have otherwise largely left their offspring-related senses behind.
