My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Feb 5, 2015

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.

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.
