Interview with Bill Bentley

12/15/2017
More
Bill Bentley, author of one of the coolest books I've come across this year Smithsonian Rock and Roll: Live and Unseen, is on the show today to talk about what it's been like to spend his entire life in music. We get into what it was like to work for Neil Young for 30 years, what it was like to see The Rolling Stones when he was 15, and how the hell he managed to get hundreds and hundreds of concert and band photographs taken by fans. He will certainly be back on the show but this was an...

Satica and the Best Summer Pop Song You'll Hear All Winter

11/16/2017
More
I found out about Satica maybe a month ago and got addicted to her track “Honey Whiskey” on Soundcloud. She was nice enough to come on the show to talk about her music, but we ended up also getting into some pretty heavy stuff related to family and growing up as the daughter of Cambodian refugees in Long Beach, CA. This conversation was equal parts illuminating and funny and I've been hooked on her new Drippin' EP for a few weeks now. Check out the interview and then hop into the music...

Interview with Andrew Barber from Fake Shore Drive

11/14/2017
More
Huge day today folks. Red Bull flew me out to Chicago for their Red Bull Sound Select festival and hooked up an interview with one of my personal heroes and a legend in the Chicago music scene, Andrew Barber. He's the founder of Fake Shore Drive and was there at the beginning to watch Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Chief Keef, King Louie, Lil Durk, G Herbo, and many more rise to local and then national fame. We go deep on the Chicago music scene, how he started Fake Show Drive and made it...

Interview with Sharon Van Etten on "Because I Was In Love"

11/9/2017
More
Sharon Van Etten has become a force to be reckoned with within the world of Indie music over the last 8 years, and it all began in 2009 with the release of her debut album Because I Was In Love. Sharon stopped by the show recently to discuss the album and the impact it's had on her career since its release. She opened up quite a bit about what her life was like around the making of the record and the different twists and turns of recording it. We also got into what her life has been like...

Why We Love Sad Music During The Fall

11/3/2017
More
I’ve been pretty curious for a long time why it is that as soon as there’s the faintest nip of cold in the September air, I’m immediately in my flannel stuff and listening to For Emma Forever Ago and relating every line of it to every girl that I have ever been in a committed monogamous relationship with or seen in line at the bagel place. It’s genuinely sort of strange how seasons can affect our moods and the music we listen to during them, and Allie Baughman stopped by to talk about the...

Daniele Luppi's "Milano"

10/27/2017
More
It takes a special sort of artist to pull the listener into a different world entirely, and there are far more examples of folks who have tried to do that than ones who have pulled it off. Like Twain said about the difference between the right and the almost right word, the difference between immersion and depiction is like lightning vs a lightning bug. Daniele Luppi's work falls squarely on the lightning side of that comparison and Milano, a concept album meant to bring you into the...

Four Tet's New Energy

10/18/2017
More
This week Katie Bain and I jump into Four Tet and his meditative new album New Energy. We get into Four Tet's backstory, why his work has stuck with both of us so closely over 9 releases, and what makes his new work so special. We also get way deep into what makes IDM music so important, why Four Tet is one of the most important electronic musicians of his generation, and why the club dance floor is the perfect space for a particular type of meditation and enlightenment.

The History of Ambient Church

10/13/2017
More
Brian Sweeny, the founder of Ambient Church, is on the show today and I'm so excited this interview worked out. I found out about Ambient Church a few months ago and, given that it's a concert series centered on ambient music that takes place in church buildings around NYC, I had to learn more about it. This is one of my favorite episodes so far and it's a great primer not just on the events themselves but also on ambient music in general.

Selector Series: Caleb Braaten from Sacred Bones Records

Every month, we have one of our favorite music heads pick a few records for the monthly Vinyl Me, Please store and this month we're joined by none other than Caleb Braaten, the founder of Sacred Bones Records. We talk the realities of starting a label from scratch, how Sacred Bones manages to maintain a lineup that is equally incredible and unpredictable, and we talk through his picks for our store. I've included the list of his album picks below with links that will let you give them a...

The Wilderness of Daniel Norgren

9/29/2017
More
Daniel Norgren is one of our favorite new artists and we’ve been talking about him for a while now. Greg Vandy, host of The Roadhouse on KEXP and the first DJ in America to play Daniel’s music, had the idea of doing an immersive piece that takes you deeper into Daniel’s music and who he is as a person. Daniel almost never does interviews and Greg has put together something really special here.

Interview with Skating Polly

9/27/2017
More
One of the best bands you've (maybe) never heard of is named Skating Polly and I was lucky enough to get a bit of their time while they were in between shows on their current tour. I LOVE this band, and I can't believe I hadn't listened to them prior to a month ago or so. Maybe you've heard of them, maybe you haven't, but everyone from X to The Flaming Lips to Viggo Mortenson are huge fans of them and I can't wait for you to learn more about them. We talk what it was like starting a band...

The National and the Beasts We Live With

9/26/2017
More
The National have released their new album Sleep Well Beast and Geoff Rickly (Thursday, No Devotion, and United Nations) is back to unpack it with me. We get into how the Devendorf brothers originally brought the band together, how it is that they seem to get 15% better with every album, and the effect that composers like Phillip Glass and Steve Reisch have had on their songwriting. We also explore the ins and outs of SWB, recap our trip to Hudson to see the release show and get into some...

The very first new episode of Sounds Good falls to the new album from The War on Drugs album and the (extremely) special guest Mikayla Moyer, Live Nation Comedy extraordinaire, who recently helped orchestrate the Dave Chappelle Residency at Radio City. She knows everything! The War on Drugs is incredible! You’ll leave the episode knowing both things and MUCH MUCH MORE! Hell yeah let’s get it.

The Persistent Genius of Grizzly Bear

9/7/2017
More
Jeff Weiss, fresh off his huge profile of Grizzly Bear for Noisey, is here this week to talk one of the most important bands of the last 15 years or so. He spent some considerable time with them talking about their new album and what life has been life for all of them, and he's here to give us the full scoop on what makes these guys tick. They are a monumental band, and this episode is perfect for getting a fly-over of their history, a breakdown of their new album, and a deep dive on why...

"Mistaken For Stangers" Interview with Tom Berninger

8/24/2017
More
We recently had a big event at Alamo Drafthouse here in Denver with none other than Tom Berninger, the director of "Mistaken For Strangers" and brother to The National's lead singer Matt Berninger. Tom is a quirky, wicked smart, and hilarious dude and we dug deep into the process of making the film (which is both about him and The National at the same time), what his relationship with his brother is like in real life, his hobbies (he's not into Indie Rock at all), and some of his fears and...

Jen Cloher and Billie Eilish Album Reviews

8/21/2017
More
Jen Cloher, one of the best DIY artists in Australia or anywhere else, has a new self-titled album out and we're way, way into it. We get into her story, her role in the Australian music scene, her relationship with Courtney Barnett, and why this album is her best work so far. We also talk 15-year-old phenom Billie Eilish and her debut album "don't smile at me." Billie is making music better than people twice her age and she seems at this point to be sitting on an infinite supply of...

What Would Diplo Do?

8/15/2017

This week we're talking one of the grandfathers of EDM, Diplo, and the new parody show "What Would Diplo Do?" on Viceland. We get into Diplo's career and who he is in case you haven't heard of him or don't know him well. We also chat his current career and place as both a social media and music icon and what makes "What Would Diplo Do?" such an incredible idea. Katie and I are a little conflicted on the quality of the show so far but it is certainly worth watching and it's AWESOME that we...

Tyler the Creator's "Flower Boy"

8/4/2017

I hopped a plane to L.A. to hang out with Jeff Weiss and Paul Thompson, two of the best and brightest when it comes to rap, to talk Tyler the Creator's new album Flower Boy. We talked his history and the rise of Odd Future, Tyler's evolution as a musician, and why Flower Boy is not only our favorite album from him but also one of the best of year.
