My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Dec 14, 2015

On the heels of my conversation with Jason Isbell, I'm revisiting one of my favorite episodes from the archives - acclaimed filmmaker and former music exec Brian Koppelman talking about how and why he fell in love with Jason's album 'Southeastern'.

What insights did Brian glean from his own chats with Isbell? What is is like to discover one of your favorite albums in your late 40s? How does this album help dispel destructive myths about creativity? What emotions do these songs provoke live? And which Australian singer/songwriter is Brian currently blown away by?

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 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.
