Popular Music: The Podcast


May 15, 2017

On this week's episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Analise and Steven chat about the genius that is Marina and the Diamonds and her early single, "I Am Not A Robot." They dissect the smorgasbord arrangement of genres that the song employs (baroque pop anyone?) and why Marina's lyrical musings on vulnerability are so very important even now, seven years on. 
 
No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
