Is it how it sets the mood, from turning your foot to lead and causing you to race down a highway to maybe taking it slow and reflecting on how far you’ve come? Is it the song's maximum sing-a-long potential, whether or not you’re driving alone or with your best friends, exploring the country? Or is it just whether or not it’s about actually driving around? The gang is about to take a drive down the journey of what makes a good road trip anthem, and they’re taking you along for the ride. Better buckle up.
David Bowie: Discussing the Interstellar Discography From the Ziggy Stardust Era to His Final Goodbye Blackstar
This week, Adrienne and Katarina tackle the discography of the real Starman waiting in the sky: David Bowie. Bowie’s legacy is one of fascinating experimentation, breaking boundaries, and a testament to the power of presentation. From an astronaut stranded in space, to an androgynous bisexual alien from Mars, to a dystopian future a la 1984 and beyond, Bowie’s music and storytelling abilities have transported fans into an alien mindset, acting as an outsider looking in, and in doing so revealed to listeners what being human truly meant. Buckle up, listeners: it’s gonna be quite the intergalactic ride.
Adrienne and Katarina return to form this week as we dive into our first solo act of the season: Janelle Monae! Our dynamic duo dissects this incredibly talented and experimental artist that has broken musical boundaries for years now, both vocally and thematically, crafting incredible tales of science fiction with her albums while delivering biting social commentary, and of course, absolute bops. Will Adrienne be able to stop rambling about how much she loves Janelle Monae? Will Katarina finally understand the overarching plot of The ArchAndroid? Will the podcast goblin return with another irritating hint? Tune in and find out!
