Suggests: Young by Grayscale from Nella Vita

We talk often on the podcast about music videos that are either way too literal to the lyrics, or tend to lack any kind of semblance to the song itself, but director Jordan Mizrahi perfectly captures the essence of the song’s meaning and energy throughout every second of this video.

The Taylor Swift Discography Draft

This was legitimately one of the toughest drafts we've done. Even though Taylor's catalog is dynamic and offers something for almost anyone, it's still a more limited pool than, say, the entirety of music released in the year 2000. Additionally, each of her albums hecking rips, so leaving songs on the bleachers was going to be tough.

On Air Combat's "The Story Of The Boy With The Stolen Name"

Taking a step back after weeks of listening to read all the lyrics, straight through without music, I began to admire this EP even more. As a concept album, every song is an extension of the last, unveiling another part of the story.

Interview with Michael Hegner on Julien Baker's album, "Sprained Ankle"

 This record created my production philosophy. The entire premise for the project was to give Julien a record that was her. By letting Julien be Julien and not trying to get her to be anybody else we got a record that is an accurate representation of her soul.

Interview with Beau Burchell on Moose Blood’s new single, “Honey”.

I don’t really do any tricks. I try to keep the arrangements as simple as possible. I’ll have a different guitar sound for the choruses. Probably layered with some extra guitars, leads and arpeggios, but I don’t do any stereo widening plugin tricks or anything. That always sounds weird and distracting to me.  Ya depending on how sparse the verses are, I might pan the verse guitars in a bit if I feel like there is a hole in the middle.
