This week on Repeater, we talk with drummer, guitarist, and vocalist Mikey Erg (The Chris Gethard Show, Worriers, Early Riser The Ergs!, 100 Other Bands) about “Tommy’s Coming Home” by unbelievable dream team Paul McCartney…
One of our favorite songwriters, Lauren Denitzio of the band Worriers, joins us to talk about one of her most beloved songs, “Still Into You” by Paramore. Listen in for a great conversation on what makes a great song, why whining about production quality is stupid, and how awesome Philly’s music scene is right now. Plus, two songs from Lauren!
Most year-end lists try to objectively let you know what the best albums of the year are, either in the industry as a whole or within a given genre. But we’re a podcast about how music affects each of us, so our list is more personal (forgive us, Lorde). These albums are ranked by how much we listened to them, what they meant to us, what they meant to the world, and how great we thought they were. If you disagree, that’s probably good. Make your own dang list.
Todays episode features Jamie Coletta, the director of marketing at Side One Dummy Records. This is our first episode recorded out of New York, our first without Evan, and our first with a label we absolutely adore. Jamie was excited to discuss the new Paramore album which Pat enjoyed as a soundtrack to drive around California.
We covered a lot of ground in this one! The Paramore song had us discussing identity, expectations, and the seemingly dramatic shift in genre they took. Then we talked about how Jamie got into the industry, doing what you love, what it’s like to hunt for new bands, and how the labels community naturally formed.
