Podcast recommendation: Song Exploder

Song Exploder is a favourite podcast of mine that explores the production process of a song or piece of  soundtrack music. 

It’s fascinating to hear how parts of a song were developed, which ideas didn’t make it and generally just to hear it all come together. Generally the artist or producer dissects the piece or plays earlier demos and talks you through their thinking.

Episodes I’ve really enjoyed include Natalia Lafourcade’s show on Hasta la RaĆ­z and Jimmy Tamborello from The Postal Service on The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

Worth checking out and a must-listen if you’ve ever tried to make or record your own music.
