On Repeater this week, we talk with comedian, satirist, writer, and editor Taylor Garron (Reductress, Vulture) about Avey Tare Slasher Flick’s “Little Fang,” Taylor’s undying love for anything in the Animal Collective family, and how the jangle-y 60’s cocktail sound of Little Fang got her through this past year with its power to pep and motivate.
We kick off our episode with a taste of everyone’s current favorites, from Pat’s pick of PUP’s new album Morbid Stuff (specifically “Closure” and “Full Blown Meltdown“), to Evan’s pick of “Tempo” by Lizzo & Missy Elliot (Lizzo’s song drops are a recurring theme this season), and Taylor’s self-described musical regression with MF Doom’s “Rhymes Like Dimes” and Blind Melon’s “No Rain“. We also talk about more 2018 moments from the suspension of the suspension of the L train and the death of the queen of soul: Aretha Franklin.
This episode has everything: from Taylor deep-diving into her admiration for the whole Animal Collection clan, to relating musical talent, technique, and instinct to her own growing career in comedy, all rounded out with a key tip for cooking with wine. Check it out!
Don’t forget to leave us a 5-star review, because we will read it on-air!!!
