Right now, Kimbra predicts she might try “a more minimal approach. ‘Vows’ is about chucking everything in there, which was really fun. Next time it would be interesting for me to try something a little more stripped-back and explore that idea of putting my vocal really foreground, devoid of too much trickery. So I’m thinking of that, but who knows. Maybe I’ll make another kitchen sink record again.”
"I would get to that extent where I’d done so much experimentation with a song I was crashing Pro Tools [digital audio workstation] in the studio. I’m serious, over 300, 400 tracks on a Pro Tools session," she laughs.
This week, I’m joined by Peter Hassett from the hockey blog “Russian Machine Never Breaks“, who’s talking about The Dismemberment Plan’s album “Emergency & I”. When he told me this was the album he wanted to talk about, I looked into it and immediately kicked myself for never having listened to it sooner, it’s just that good.
Doran Martell:Have you ever considered that maybe some of these girls are not yours? Their mothers could just be claiming that you're the father because they know you would give their bastard children a better life than they could.
Obara Sand:*fearsome warrior who aggressively hates Westeros*
Nymeria Sand:*has threesomes with identical female twins*
Tyene Sand:*poisons anyone and everyone who gets in her way*
Sarella Sand:*disguises herself as a man so she can study in Oldtown*
Oberyn Martell:Yeah I'm fairly certain that they're all mine.
This week, my pal Katie Brown is on the show talking about Jason Isbell’s album “Southeastern”! This album is full of some heavy stuff, and we talk about how it might not have been her favorite if she had come across it a decade earlier. It’s always interesting how tastes in music change as one gets older, and experiences more of what we like to call life.
When I come out of an interview, I jot down the things I remember as being my favorite moments. For an hour-long interview usually it’s just four or five moments, but if out I’m reporting all day, I’ll spend over an hour at night typing out every favorite thing that happened. This is handier than you might think. Often this short list of favorite things will provide the backbone to the structure to my story.
