Episode 32

“I’d pay money to hear her fart down a Walkie-Talkie”

So we find ourselves in the latter half of the solo work of Icelandic legend Björk.

First of all we had major tech-issues with this one. Hopefully it’s not too distracting and we promise never to do it again..

Nick brings back his trademarked “Party Björk to Arty Björk” phrase to a much better reception. Ewan had real issues with “one of the most important pieces of music of the century”. Emily loves an album no-one else did and Liam veers between love, admiration and disappointment. And we all mispronounce something at least once.

In this episode we discuss these records:

(19:41) Roundtable Chat

Medúlla (2004)

Volta (2007)

Biophillia (2011)

Vulnicura (2015)

Utopia (2017)
