Actor (Buffy, Men at Work, MyMusic) and musician Adam Busch hosts me in his LA adobe to talk about ‘A River Ain’t Too Much To Love’, the hypnotic album by Smog aka Bill Callahan.
We talk about how the album manipulates your emotions, the timeless quality of the music, how it works as a gateway for folk fans to more modern music, what Smog has in common with Father John Misty, not being able to choose your audience, because why actors/comedians want to be musicians (and vice-versa) and why it seems everybody wants to be what they’re not - and LA’s weed and comedy renaissance.
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, journalist and photographer 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.
