    Eric Clapton - Pilgrim (w/ Mark Richardson)

    Eric Clapton - Pilgrim (w/ Mark Richardson)

    In the gripping Late Era season finale, the core trio is joined by music critic Mark Richardson (@MarkRichardson) to discuss the polarizing, blockbuster work of Eric Clapton in the 1990s. It was a time when his MTV Unplugged set launched him to new commercial heights, and his mysterious electronic project T.D.F. propelled him into strange creative depths. The focus of our discussion is 1998’s Pilgrim, his futuristic, adult contemporary attempt to make the “saddest album ever written.” Did he succeed? Is he even a good guitar player? Is there life beyond financial stability? All your questions will be answered in this emotional, high-energy conversation—a must-listen for Slowhand-haters and acolytes the world over.

    Kate Bush - Aerial (w/ Jude Rogers)

    Kate Bush - Aerial (w/ Jude Rogers)

    In 2005, the English art-rock legend Kate Bush returned after a hiatus that spanned more than a decade to release Aerial, one of her most ambitious and mystifying albums. Joined by critic and journalist Jude Rogers (@juderogers), the Late Era trio discusses this magnificent double album: a conceptual opus that incorporates birdsong, a recitation of the digits of pi, and tributes to Elvis Presley and Kate Bush’s son (and frequent collaborator) Albert, aka Bertie. During the conversation, we explore the musical settings of Kate Bush’s work as well as the lyrical complexities, and we discuss her journey toward making this album and her enduring influence in the 21st century. Plus, our recurring Financial Corner reaches a surprising climax. Make a deal with pod and join us for another Late Era milestone.

    Jay-Z - Magna Carta Holy Grail (w/ Open Mike Eagle)

    Jay-Z - Magna Carta Holy Grail (w/ Open Mike Eagle)

    Jay-Z in the 2010s and beyond embodies the sort of imperial excess we’ve generally associated with rock and capital-P Pop musicians on this podcast so far. He’d already ascended the highest mountains of success. The budgets were virtually unlimited, and the hits were still coming. But somewhere along the way, he lost touch with the essential spark of his artistry. Rapper, comedian, and podcast mogul Open Mike Eagle (@Mike_Eagle) joins us for a frank discussion of Magna Carta Holy Grail—the moment when Jay’s world-conquering persona tipped closest to self-parody—as well as the complications of late-era rap albums more generally.

    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose (w/ Allison Hussey)

    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose (w/ Allison Hussey)

    In 2004, Loretta Lynn collaborated with Jack White for Van Lear Rose, a surprise critical and commercial comeback that helped secure the country icon’s legacy in the 21st century. Putting a focus on her gifts as a songwriter and backed by the kind of rootsy, stripped-back blues-rock that the White Stripes made their name on, it is a singular and strange moment in Lynn’s remarkable catalog. Joined by music journalist Allison Hussey (@allisonhussey), the Late Era trio discusses the pros and cons of the young producer/late-era artist team-up and dives into this album’s many mysteries.

    Van Morrison - Latest Record Project Volume 1

    Van Morrison - Latest Record Project Volume 1

    The long, strange career of Van Morrison has given the hosts of Late Era plenty to talk about, and on this very special episode, we discuss his uncommonly topical new album. Latest Record Project Volume 1 is a 28-track, two-hour dump of anti-lockdown protest songs, soulless blues vamps, and unfiltered rants that range from alt-right conspiracy theories to bitter musings about his ex-wife. An abysmal document of an aging artist’s worst tendencies, it inspires the Late Era boys to pose a stirring series of questions: How did we get here? What is he even going for? What do we do with our legacy artists after they release something like this? What does it really mean to have the blues? Like detectives on the case, Late Era gets to the bottom of things: It’s not always pretty but we get the job done.

Hacks

You hacks really missed the mark with your pathetic review of Van Morrison’s new album. Don’t project your politics on the music, you can’t read minds.

Hilarious

This podcast sounds a lot like my friends and I sitting around and brutally dishing on some albums. Except the podcast hosts are smarter, more informed about music, better looking, and much more sober than my friends and I.
