In case you missed it: A fantastic new episode of the ’77 Music Club podcast is now live. It’s a special one — we interviewed iconic punk baddie Viv Albertine about an album that’s influenced her (Dionne Warwick’s Golden Hits Pt 1) and learned so, so much in the process. It’s a great one. Tune in here.
’77 Music Club is back for a third season! In the latest episode, we break down Laura Nyro’s 1968 album Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. We discuss Nyro’s evocative imagery and sense of self, the surprising and enlightening ways we found it connecting to our own experiences as young women in 2018 — particularly examining the similarities and stark differences between second and fourth wave feminism — and of course, musical earworms. For a 50-year-old album recorded and produced by a 20-year-old girl, this prodigious record still remains astonishingly relevant.
I talked to Lindsey Jordan aka Snail Mail about Lush (my favorite album of the year, if you’re new here), sequencing, stanning Television, and some other good stuff for FLOOD Magazine. I managed to even get a Joan Didion ref in there, so check it out.
It is such a privilege to be able to tell someone else’s story, and I am so lucky that I got to do that with this, the first video I story edited and produced for Iris. This is just a scratch in the surface of Dylan Hundley’s story, but I am quite proud of it.
Carly and I will be joining Crispin Kott and Mike Katz to discuss their new book, Rock & Roll Explorer Guide to New York City at Rough Trade NYC. Come hear us talk about music, New York, and the history between the two. More details here.
