Our thirteenth podcast episode of the week: Jeremy Zuckerman – The Legend of Korra by Song Exploder.
I always imagined writing and producing music to be this magical procedure, which for me also involved not being too interested in how it was made, somehow being afraid that taking songs apart might ruin them.
It doesn't. Song Exploder lets musicians talk, seemingly uninterrupted, about how they made one of their songs, and the podcast lead to my rediscovery of Spoon, and the one with Jeremy Zuckerman was so beautiful that I had to cry. Which I often do, admittedly, while listening to good podcasts. And this is one good podcast.
And yes, I've written Sound Exploder in the picture, but it's 35°C (95°F) outside and I can't think anymore. Sorry.
