Conversations about Prince, from the author of princesongs.org.

    All the Critics Love U - A Conversation with Jack Riedy, Author of Electric Word Life

    All the Critics Love U - A Conversation with Jack Riedy, Author of Electric Word Life

    As promised/threatened, we're back to a monthly schedule on the D / M / S / R podcast! For this month's episode, it was my pleasure to speak to music writer Jack Riedy (Pitchfork, GQ, VIBE) about his new book Electric Word Life: Writing on Prince 2016-2021. It was a really fun conversation, running through each of the pieces collected in his book and covering everything from Prince’s influence on Chicago house to the degree to which the Batman album goes (spoiler: it’s hard). Check it out, and if you're so inclined, get yourself a copy of Jack’s book! It's a great read and highly recommended.

    40 Years of The Time - A Conversation with Darling Nisi and Harold Pride

    40 Years of The Time - A Conversation with Darling Nisi and Harold Pride

    July 2021 marks the 40th anniversary of the self-titled debut album by the Time; so, I decided to commemorate the occasion by bringing back Darling Nisi and Harold Pride for one of our trademark track-by-track deep dives. As always, the conversation left me thinking about the album in new ways: from KaNisa's interpretation of it as Prince's tribute to the funk music of his youth, to Harold's insight on its significance to the development of electronic dance music. I remain grateful to be able to talk about music with these two brilliant people.

    40 Years of Dirty Mind

    40 Years of Dirty Mind

    Way back in February of 2020, I asked Darling Nisi and Harold Pride to record a third episode in our series of in-depth retrospectives on Prince's albums, this one for the 40th anniversary of 1980’s Dirty Mind. Now, over six months of pandemic-related depression later, the D / M / S / R podcast is back, in all its wildly self-indulgent glory. I want to thank everyone for their patience, and assure you that there won't be a two-year wait before the next episode; in fact, I'd recommend you go ahead and subscribe, because I'm aiming to put out one of these bad boys (i.e., podcasts, not necessarily review episodes) per month.

Among the very best discussions of Prince music

These discussions are thought-provoking and make all kinds of interesting connections. I’ve learned a lot. Truly one of the best Prince-related conversations out there.
