My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Sep 26, 2014

To celebrate the release of Blue Planet Eyes, the long-awaited debut LP from The Preatures (go buy it, it's awesome), I'm reposting my chat with Preatures drummer, sample pad trigger man, songwriter and all around good dude Luke Davison. Luke sat down with me a few months ago for a chat about the classic 1962 debut LP from legendary groove merchants Booker T and the MGs - Green Onions.

Along the way, we break down classic tracks “Green Onions” and “Twist and Shout”, talk about the accidental creation of the band, how the MGs songwriting process parallels The Preatures on songs like "Is This How You Feel?", Luke’s work in R&B band The Fabulous Rumble’ators, why simplicity is the hardest thing to pull off and how music ends up in Viagra commercials.

My Favorite Album is a podcast unpacking the great works of pop music. Each episode features a different songwriter or musician discussing their favorite album of all time - their history with it, the making of the album, individual songs and the album’s influence on their own music.

Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker from Sydney, Australia who has worked in the music industry since 2007. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the feature film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins, in addition to many commercials and music videos.
