    Crowded House’s Neil Finn on Gravity Stairs, 80s Classics, Love, Mortality, & Family

    Crowded House’s Neil Finn catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about the band's upcoming album Gravity Stairs, their second release since reuniting in 2020. Listen to the new episode above, or wherever you get your podcasts.
    The songwriting legend measures the band's new material against their classic '80s and '90s work, explaining how they maintained a dreamy quality for the latest set. A goal for the new album in particular, though, was to be more lyrically direct, which lead Finn to work with his sons Liam and Elroy, as well as his brother (and former bandmate) Tim Finn.
    Such interests can be heard on the first single, "Oh Hi," which has ties to the charity So They Can, an organization focused on helping build schools in countries like Kenya and Tanzania.
    Listen to Finn talk about Crowded House's new album Gravity Stairs, their new song "Oh Hi," and more above.

    Hauser on Classical Music, Performing with U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers, & Life After 2Cellos

    Hauser on Classical Music, Performing with U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers, & Life After 2Cellos

    Hauser drops by to talk with Kyle Meredith about his new album, Classic II, a sequel to his 2020 project that found the 2Cellos member reinterpreting a set of handpicked classical songs. Listen to the new episode above, or wherever you get your podcasts.
    The artist explains the concept of the new album, how it connects to the previous installment, and the process of selecting which compositions would make the cut. He also gets into why he feels classical music has been able to endure in the current landscape of music, as well as why he feels it's particularly important that it does.
    Still, the world-renowned cellist does have a soft-spot for certain pop and rock artists. He's collaborated with several rock icons -- like U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers -- and enjoys the ways the different schools of music intersect.
    Listen to Hauser talk about all this and more on YouTube above. You can also follow Kyle Meredith With... on your favorite podcast platform, and keep up to date with all our series by following the Consequence Podcast Network.

45% advertisements and intro.

Great guests, but do you really need a five minute intro for a 20 minute conversation?
