On this week’s My Favorite Album, host Jeremy
Dylan is joined by half of Sydney’s premiere
hip-hop-blues-rock band She
Rex - MC Nikkita
Rast and drummer Tash
Adams - for a chat about the album that served as their
sonic inspiration - 2009’s “BlakRoc”, that saw the Black Keys
joined by an assortment of hip-hop MCs.
They break down tracks “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)” and
“What You Do to Me” and along the way, talk about how the why this
album succeeds in mixing rap and rock when so many have failed,
off-topic guest verses, contrasting vocal styles within a track and
how She Rex have tried to carry on the organic music-making method
of the LP in their own music.
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.
