Off to a great start

Fantastic first episode! I've heard that song a thousand times and now it's new again. Keep up the good work.

Episode One - Much Potential

I listened to Song Exploder’s first episode today. It’s a promising start that I hope will expand a bit as the flow gets going. The show combines interviews with a song’s creator with audio of an individual track or tracks to demonstrate how the song is constructed.

I think this show’s success will depend in large part on whose songs their deconstructing and the ability of the interviewer to explore interesting elements of the construction with the artists. This show is a Maximum Fun podcast, and so it’s certainly got the creative and knowledge background to be great!

Keep exploding!

I'm always interested to learn about the creative process, craft, and choices made by artists. Looking forward to hearing more!
