Bjork + Bigband = Bjorkestra

Bjork-Post Lately I’ve been enamored with experimental covers of pop musicians. My latest object of affection is the intersection of modern big-band and Bjork. The result is Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra. An incredible collection of jazz interpretations of music written and performed by Bjork.

Take a listen, buy their albums…or go see them live.

Song Exploder Podcast

A few days ago I found a new podcast to add to my rotation. And apparently, I love this podcast! Song Exploder is hosted by Hrishikesha5eMUALj_400x400 Hriway and it’s super interesting if you are into deconstructing modern songs.

I downloaded 3 episodes which included artist I admire and listen to often. I was blown away with the interviews and then felt more invested in following Björk, Tune-Yards and Open Mike Eagle.

Here are some links to those episodes on the Song Exploder Soundcloud page. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.SongExploder60-600x298
