We’ve put on our headphones and escaped into the ambient worlds of the Calais 2037 podcast and Brian Eno’s boxed set ‘Music for Installations’. Here’s why they are great to listen to with ear goggles.
The Office Playlist exploded this week with Song Exploder telling us the tales behind our favourite songs and power pop 3-piece The Courtneys rocking us Kiwi-style from Vancouver.
Continuing on from last week’s Office Playlist, we’re focussing on Australia. The Australian Podcast Awards have brought some amazing podcasts into the spotlight, while Kylie Minogue’s new album Golden may have just turned that colour because it was left out in the country sun too long.
Sometimes it’s nice to blow out the cobwebs, so things got a bit loud on the Office Playlist this week. The Real Thing is an ABC podcast collecting real stories from across Australia. Car Seat Headrest is a dumb name for a great band with loud guitars.
Love prevails on our podcast playlist with a broad look at this most personal and universal emotion. And it continues right into the music with Starchild & The New Romantic falling hopelessly in love with the 80s.
Looking for a podcast about Tinder dates that will make you laugh out loud? Look no further! And Ryuichi Sakamoto’s new album was greeted with great appreciation whenever it popped up on the office playlist this week.
Our favourite podcast this week is made for kids, by kids, but as adults we absolutely love it! And one of the podcast world’s most interesting characters releases a posthumous album that’s as curious as he was.
There was a darkness on the Office Playlist this week. Black Hands is a chilling true-crime podcast that re-negotiates our relationship with picture perfect New Zealand. And while Slowdive’s first album in 23 years has a black cover, it’s music that will restore and nourish your soul.
The Written & Recorded office hums to the sound of podcasts and music. Once a week we’ll highlight our favourite new podcast and album. This week the oldest man in podcasting presents Harry’s Last Stand and we enter the less-than-virtuous circle of Arcade Fire’s ‘Everything Now’.
