The French drummer for West Australian rocker Tame Impala, Julien Barbagallo is also a singer/songwriter who creates his own form of what he calls 'manicured pop' music.
We talk about how April March's 1999 album turned him from a Britpop fan into an appreciator of French creativity, how to appreciate music when you can't understand the music, his love for intricate production and arrangements, why he moved to Melbourne but still writes about France, why Tame Impala's "Currents" is such a great album, how much freedom he has to be creative with the drum parts Kevin Parker wrote and how he got the rarest of all things - an apology from Oasis.
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.
