The Show: The Lebensraum of popular music

If you enjoyed the opening to today’s show – and who wouldn’t like Whitney Houston’s music being described as tyrannical and capable of crushing every tune in your record collection – the full exchange between Edward George and John Doran is available as a podcast via The Quietus. It is for subscribers only but this one interview is well worth the price of admission.

Meanwhile, battle lines have been drawn within the greater Joint family over the best version of Harry Styles’ “As It Was” – the original, the Arcade Fire cover or Harry performing the tune live at Coachella. Listen to all 3 in the epilogue or watch them below.

And on with the show…
