Slick and fascinating

The WWW brought me here, and I’m glad it did! The podcast is produced so well, seamless song parts and really soothing narrative. Every episode feels like such a treat - like you’re sitting down with the artists over coffee to have them explain their song to you.
I also enjoy how you get to hear the full song at the end of the episode, and listen to it in the light of everything you’ve just heard. Such an insightful and beautifully made podcast!

High class pop fodder

Great insights - and so good to hear generous extracts (even isolated tracks from studio masters) and then the whole song
