We have stories to tell: These are the songs you want to forget but love to remember. It's our soundtrack and probably yours too. Hosted by Stephanie Myers and Stephanie Peña. New episodes every other Wednesday! Part of Pantheon Podcasts.
The White Stripes begin and end with the enigmatic Jack White. In this episode, we discuss our memories and stories around the White Stripes and "Seven Nation Army," including Stephanie M's story of seeing them play in breezy Coney Island and Stephanie P's story of a close Jack encounter.
The Pixies' journey from critical darlings to a band who holds the title of having one of the most licensed songs ever is a fascinating one. On this episode, we talk about Frank Black/Black Francis, the surprising ways the band has embedded themselves in pop culture, and how you truly get bang for your buck when you see them live.
Weezer is one of the most prolific modern-day bands in existence, and in this episode, we chat about Rivers Cuomo's musical ambitions, the band's deep pop culture impact, their longtime ability to shape and embrace "nerd chic" aesthetics, and what it's like to see them in concert stunning an audience.
M.I.A. has not lived her life without controversy, and in this episode, we discuss those instances, along with her deep hip-hop roots, who she loves to sample, who she's pissed off, and what it was like seeing her play at the now-defunct Siren Fest on Coney Island in 2007.
Santo & Johnny's musical story, which began as teenagers, is quite the tale. In this episode, we talk about their Brooklyn-based origins, the story of "Sleepwalk" (including a secret version with lyrics), being a part of La Bamba's legacy, and as always, the memories we connect with the music.
