In September, the Talkhouse Podcast squad rolled out to Las Vegas for Life is Beautiful Music and Arts Festival. In between performances from Talkhouse faves A$AP Ferg, CHVRCHES, and Death Cab For Cutie, we recorded some epic convos for the show.

11/15/2018

The Talkhouse Podcast recently headed out to the fantastic Desert Daze festival at Moreno Beach at Lake Perris in Southern California. When we weren't catching sets by Tame Impala, King Gizzard and My Bloody Valentine, we recorded a trio of great talks; this week, we present the first. When I saw that both Steve Albini and Devo's Jerry Casale were going to be at Desert Daze giving talks, I knew we had to pair these two icons of alternative music. They're big fans of each other's work, and...

11/1/2018
More
Today’s show features Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets To Brazil) and chef Graham Elliot (Masterchef, Top Chef) in conversation live from Virgin Hotels Chicago. Their talk covers some of the big experiences of their respective art forms — the inherent pressures of reuniting with a legendary band, or of being asked to recreate classic dishes in a high pressure public environment; false “perfection” vs. authenticity in the recording studio and in the kitchen — as well as Jawbreaker’s...

“I don’t know if this is a therapy session or a podcast,” says Katie Monks (Dilly Dally) part way through this conversation with her brother Dave Monks (Tokyo Police Club). We here at Talkhouse think it’s a bit of both. We're also excited to premiere a never-before-heard ambient collaboration between Katie and Dave. The sibling frontpeople chopped it up in their hometown of Toronto, and their talk takes in a lot: how they saved each others’ bands; the life lessons they learned from those...

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, Craig Robinson and Aubrey Plaza sit down for a hilarious off-the-cuff conversation. Robinson and Plaza are two of the funniest people in Hollywood, and also two of the stars of An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, the new movie by Jim Hosking, writer-director of The Greasy Strangler and Talkhouse repeat offender. Over the course of their delightfully unpredictable chat, Robinson and Plaza organize a radio call-in show, do a LOT of singing...

Today’s episode features Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and Low’s Alan Sparhawk—and it's the first to be curated by Talkhouse’s new Executive Editor Josh Modell, who joins me to introduce it. (Welcome, Josh!) Ben and Alan’s talk goes all the way back to the earliest days of their bands, and up to the present with the fantastic LPs they each recently dropped.

Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards) with Meghan Remy (U.S. Girls)

10/4/2018
More
Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards and Meghan Remy, who performs under the name U.S. Girls, are two of indie’s leftist vanguard. So it’s no surprise that the 4AD labelmates’ conversation takes in a ton of the big sociopolitical quandaries affecting today’s musicians, such as the ethical difficulties of playing festivals (and touring at all) and undoing white privilege. We also hear about how action movies pale in comparison to Meg’s real life; understanding Trump-supporting family members;...

Angel Olsen with Nic Russo (Dick Stusso)

When I got an email saying that Angel Olsen was a huge fan of a relatively new, still somewhat obscure singer-songwriter and wanted to record a Talkhouse Podcast episode with him, I knew I wanted to check him out immediately. As soon as I heard the new LP from Nic Russo (who goes by the name "Dick Stusso"), I was in. The two spoke from their homes in Asheville, NC (Olsen) and Oakland, CA (Russo), and covered a lot of ground. Nic talked about his skewed musicality and backstory, Angel spoke...
