Wherein we welcome you to the Sub Pop Podcast (welcome!) and try to explain ourselves; talk to the multi-talented Cat Harris-White (of THEESatisfaction) and Lacey Swain (Sub Pop's Director of Licensing) about Martin Scorcese and auditioning for a TV show; hear from Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg about the book he's writing, the striated caracara, world travel and the Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Jet Plane and Oxbow (the new Shearwater album), and how it all ties together; and get a sneak (audio) peek at episode two's guests, Noel and Jessica from Mass Gothic (get your non-elastic pants ready). As always, with our hosts Alissa Atkins and Arwen Nicks from the Sub Pop Podcast broomcloset studio and burlap-lined room.
(Vinyl premiers Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 9PM on HBO.)
More info on the striated caracara, the “crow on a falcon chassis” Jonathan studies, and the bird that figures heavily in his upcoming book.
Lots more links for Mass Gothic in Episode 2’s notes.
