Stereo Embers The Podcast: Elroy Finn (Crowded House, Liam Finn, Wild Nothing)
Stereo Embers: The Podcast
“Worth The Wait”The New Zealand poet John Allison once wrote: “In dividing the light, things are seen. And we notice ourselves.” That division of light and ensuing glimpse of ones true self is the perfect description of the work of one of Allison’s native New Zealanders, Elroy Finn. Finn’s debut solo album, simply titled Elroy, is a shimmering collection of sonorous indie pop that manages to be both spare and textured at the same time. Finn is a master of musical light division and his work is brimming with low-fi folk, thoughtful psychedelia, pure poetry, and a lot of heart. Finn is no stranger to the stage, having toured with Wild Nothing and his brother Liam, and as part of his dad’s band Crowded House. But in crafting the gentle song cycle of his album, Elroy Finn took a long look at himself and that kind of honest introspection yielded results that are both intimate and universal. The songs are bleached in sun, doused in surf and then coaxed into the clouds, where they hang as resplendent as stars. Catchy, bewitching and infectious in the most deviously subversive of ways, Elroy is a revelation—an artistic triumph that’s as charming as it is beguiling.www.grandphony.com www.bombshellradio.com www.alexgreenonline.comStereo Embers The Podcast:Twitter: @emberseditorInstagram: @emberspodcastEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Now they’re finally playing together, when Neil can get time off from his Fleetwood mac duties. They recently made an album, Lightsleeper. How do two generations work together without it ending in tears? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Ep. 26 - Liam Finn (performer/songwriter/producer)
'The Bottom Of It' with Joshua Moriarty
Liam Finn is a world class musician. He has shared stages and played alongside some of the great icons of our time and always holds his own. Whether it’s playing with his dad Neil Finn in Crowded House or singing alongside Eddie Vedder, opening for Queens Of The Stone Age or Coldplay or Wilco (and heaps more!), Liam has done it and nailed it. His solo records inhabit a world completely of their own and he is not confined by any current trend which is what I love about him. We sat down to discuss becoming a father, not writing songs that are too happy, the positive qualities of heroin consumption and lots more.
