Epic thoughts on why music feels good
This podcast is amazing—I can’t believe it’s only the first episode. Micah Dubreuil is an excellent host—courteous, thoughtful and observant (and a great radio voice!)—but like all great hosts, he also tends to take a backseat and lets his guests provide most of the insight. Not to say that he holds his tongue the whole podcast (it would be a tragedy if he did), but he listens more than he talks, and interjects mainly to clarify, ask follow-up questions, provide framework and occasionally engage in witty/hilarious dialogue with his guests. And his guests for this first podcast are fantastic. Dubreuil gathers a drummer, a singer/songwriter, a recording engineer and a conductor/musical curator, all local to the SF Bay Area, to discuss what it is about music that makes it “good.” Discussions about Black Sabbath, modern vs. historical orchestral music, finding the “core” of a song, and group dynamics ensue. The podcast is quite well produced by BAMM.FM (part of BAMM.TV), with music in the background that matches up well to the discussions, and occasionally swells up into the foreground in a very graceful manner.
Great job Micah! More please! Subscribing now.
Running the Voodoo Down is an awesome look at what it's like to be a musician or music fan. The host and his guests have really great insight and great experiences to talk about. If you're not a musician, this is a way to learn more about what it's like to be one, and if you are, to hear how others do it. Very entertaining and highly recommended.
