Third Eye Blind on Being Inspired by Adrianne Lenker, Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, and The Cure
Kyle Meredith With...
Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins catches up with Kyle Meredith to dig into the band’s new LP, Our Bande Apart, and it’s accompanying documentary, which gives a fly-on-the-wall look at the recording sessions. The frontman discusses upsetting some fans with their progressive sound, scrapping an earlier album once the pandemic hit, and finding influence from The Cure and Bon Iver. Jenkins also talks about covering "Funeral Singers" after hearing Sylvan Esso’s version, being inspired by the new LA singer-songwriter scene (Phoebe Bridgers), and naming Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker as his favorite artist at the moment.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

From Taylor Swift to Bon Iver, Aaron Dessner Finds Meaning in Musical Community
Switched on Pop
On August 27th Big Red Machine, the joint musical project of Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner - artists known for their work as Bon Iver and in the rock band The National, respectively - returned with new music. You’ve most definitely heard Dessner’s production work elsewhere, like on Taylor Swift’s pandemic albums evermore and folklore. The Big Red Machine album, titled How Long Do You Think it's Going to Last, celebrates the fruits of creative partnership and the importance of family and community. At least, that’s what we took from our conversation with Dessner. “A lot of my favorite music - usually there's something elusive about it, in that whatever is elusive is coming from this weird cocktail of different people's input. There's just this weird, swampy alchemy, and you can't easily put your finger on why it's so moving.” Dessner told us he draws much of his creative inspiration from the kinetic energy generated by multiple musical brains working in tandem, which makes sense given the list of features on this album - everyone from Swift to Sharon van Etten to Anaïs Mitchell to The Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold. “I'm such a born collaborator. I'm definitely interested in this exchange where you make something and you send it out into the ether and then it comes back slightly changed or radically changed. Then you work on it and send it again. I like this handoff, this communal approach to music making.”The musical collective fostered by Vernon and Dessner on How Long Do You Think It's Going to Last is a testament to the power of musical communities in a year of intense isolation. We’re so pleased to bring you Nate’s conversation with Aaron Dessner in this week’s episode.Songs Discussed Big Red Machine - Birch, feat. Taylor Swift Big Red Machine - Phoenix, feat.

In the winter of 2007, a songwriter by the name of Justin Vernon returned to the Wisconsin woods, not far from where he grew up. Just a few months later, he emerged with “For Emma, Forever Ago”—his first album produced under the name Bon Iver. Since then, Vernon and various bandmates have released three more records, won two Grammys, and collaborated with Kanye West, becoming one of the most celebrated bands in indie music. The music critic Amanda Petrusich spoke with Vernon at The New Yorker Festival, alongside his bandmates Brad Cook and Chris Messina. They discuss using made-up words as lyrics; Vernon’s deep, deep love of “Northern Exposure”; and how a group like Bon Iver engages with current events in today’s toxic political climate. Bon Iver performed “U (Man Like),” “Marion,” and “RABi”; Vernon was accompanied by Sean Carey, Jenn Wasner, and Mike Lewis. This story originally aired November 29, 2019
E3: Get Your Art Together w/ Bon Iver's Justin Vernon
How to Build a Sustainable Music Career and Collect All Revenue Streams
Host Emily White had the privilege of interviewing Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for her students at New York University's Clive Davis Institute prior to the pandemic. White realized this conversation perfectly brought to life Chapter 1 of How to Build a Sustainable Music Career and Collect All Revenue Streams - Get Your Art Together. Bon Iver's management kindly gave their blessing to share this interview in podcast form. White feels that anyone can achieve this book's and podcast's title. However the art must be great to do so. As artists and industry folks, it's natural to get caught up with what happens after music is made (marketing, distribution, etc.). However one will not be successful if the art isn't great. So much so that White is constantly reminding those in her profession of Chapter 1's title - Get Your Art Together. And why one shouldn't move on until they know they are "ripe" and ready to record, ensuring their songs, players, and vision are truly in the best place possible while creating from one's heart and soul. We hope you enjoy this very special interview with Justin Vernon by Emily and her students. Happy listening! Questions? Reach out to @EmWizzle on Twitter.

Today spellbinding singer-songwriter-doctor Sophie Payten aka Gordi joins me to dive into the world of Bon Iver’s 2016 game changer ‘22, A Million’. We dig into how Sophie feels about frequent comparisons between her and Bon Iver, how this album upended what people thought of as Bon Iver’s sound, different interpretations of the album’s opening line ‘It might be over soon’, what it was like for Sophie to work with this album’s co-producer and mixer on her latest record, the unpronounceable track names and how she ended up singing with Bon Iver on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Plus, we chat about Sophie’s new single, a duet with friend of the show Alex Lahey about my favorite dive bar, Dinos in East Nashville.
