Popular Music: The Podcast

Aug 6, 2018

You can't ignore my techno. In the SEVENTY-SIXTH episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Analise picks one of her all-time (all-time!) favorite songs to cover in honor of her birthday - “Synthesizer” by Detroit-based rock band, Electric Six! You’ll hear about the band’s many iterations of members, their bizarre lyric-writing method (Dick Valentine holds his BREATH till he just blurts stuff out?!), and why their unique blend of rock ‘n’ roll disco, combined with their “profoundly absurd/absurdly profound” lyrics will make them the band you never knew you needed, but always had this whole time (they have a butt-load of records out, guys - time to get with the program).


No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
