SONG EXPLODER, a podcast where musicians take apart their songs and tell the story of how they were made, is collaborating with WIRED to become a recurring feature on the magazine’s website. The first episode, featuring TUNE-YARDS, is up on WIRED now. Further episodes will follow every other week.
WIRED's Sr. Dir./Audience Development ERIC STEUER said: “We're really excited to work with SONG EXPLODER. We’re big fans of the work HRISHI does with the show, and we’re happy to be able to share it with the WIRED audience.”
Each episode of the podcast, created and produced by HRISHIKESH HIRWAY, features a musical guest discussing the ideas and decisions behind a single song by isolating the different pieces. SONG EXPLODER invites the audience to change the way they listen to music by hearing a recording deconstructed to uncover hidden details in the sounds and the creative process.
Previous podcast guests include THE POSTAL SERVICE, SPOON, THE NATIONAL, GHOSTFACE KILLAH and TORO Y MOI, among others.
Upcoming guests on the podcast include DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE, ARCADE FIRE's will butler and "Avengers 2" composer BRIAN TYLER. The podcast is one of the most popular music shows on iTUNES, with over 2.2 million downloads and streams.
L.A.-based creator HIRWAY, who studied design at YALE, is also known for his own music work as a film composer and with his band THE ONE AM RADIO, and with MOORS, a new collaboration with rapper/actor KEITH STANFIELD.
