In this alliterative episode I try and recommend a TV show without telling you what it’s about, recommend a musician while telling you you might not like him and recommend a video game which I’m not even sure I should be playing.
Turning fear into excitement with Austra and Dan Deacon
Prepare to be inspired by this week as Canadian singer Katie Stelmanis, AKA Austra, sits down with Dan Deacon, Cosmo Sheldrake and Dry Cleaning’s Florence Shaw. Dan Deacon is a singer-songwriter and film score composer from Baltimore, USA, who is known for his exhilarating live shows and is described by his record label Domino as an "alchemist of electro-acoustic recording tools". He released his latest record Mystic Familiar in January 2020, his first to display his natural singing voice. Another artist known to surprise his audiences is Cosmo Sheldrake, who often brings sounds from the natural world into his records and live performances. A multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer and songwriter, Cosmo released his debut album in 2018, and his compositions have featured in theatre, film, and London's Natural History Museum. They’re joined by Florence Shaw, who is a visual artist and university lecturer as well as being the lead vocalist and lyricist for London-based band Dry Cleaning. Her sources of lyrical inspiration include social anxiety, YouTube comments and even takeaway menus.They’ll be discussing the odd places they find inspiration, how an album’s format can impact the music itself, and overcoming anxiety.
Dan is an electronic musician and entrepreneur living in Baltimore, MD. He’s been a hero of mine my whole life and I’ve had the privilege of working with him a few times. Dan’s approach to DIY living and making and working is inspiring to me. We had a wide-ranging conversation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. chat starts at 4:12
