Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards) with Meghan Remy (U.S. Girls)

Talkhouse Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards and Meghan Remy, who performs under the name U.S. Girls, are two of indie’s leftist vanguard. So it’s no surprise that the 4AD labelmates’ conversation takes in a ton of the big sociopolitical quandaries affecting today’s musicians, such as the ethical difficulties of playing festivals (and touring at all) and undoing white privilege.

We also hear about how action movies pale in comparison to Meg’s real life; understanding Trump-supporting family members; whether people should be oil or sand in the machine; why Father John Misty must be "rich as fuuuuck," and much, much more. Buckle up!

Merrill Garbus with Laurie Anderson pt. 2

Talkhouse Podcast

The iconic multimedia artist Laurie Anderson always has two or three projects going at any one time, and aside from her acclaimed new feature film Heart of a Dog, she’s unveiling an installation and performance called Habeas Corpus, which takes place at the cavernous Park Avenue Armory in New York, October 2nd through 4th, 2015.

Among Anderson’s collaborators on the show are the great Syrian singer Omar Souleyman, ace multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily and Anderson’s partner in this Talkhouse Music Podcast, Merrill Garbus from Tune-Yards. Garbus and Anderson actually met through a Talkhouse Music Podcast, and you can hear them hit it off in the course of that conversation.

If fact, they hit it off so well that Anderson invited Garbus to develop a musical piece with her for Habeas Corpus. So, on the occasion of their collaboration, we brought these two remarkable artists back together for another chat. They spoke mostly about the show, but when you get two such brilliant, interesting people, the conversation is going to go to some fascinating places, and it sure did — everything from Anderson’s experiences with a psychiatrist to the reason why Garbus wanted to become an artist.
