State Podcast #11: Beach House, Yeasayer, Adrian Crowley & more

So a little later than usual, it’s the second instalment in the newly revitalised State podcast series. Still looking for that elusive title to the series, Jules and Laura return to bring you music, mindless banter and plenty of interviews with some of the most interesting acts to visit our fair city last month.

First up, it’s the lovely Victoria and Alex from Beach House who speak to us about some of their favourite tracks from their current album, the intoxicating Teen Dream.

Then it’s off to the Academy, where we catch up with Ira from Brooklyn boys done good, Yeasayer. The guys are in the middle of one of their most intense and ambitious tours yet and Ira reveals to us candidly, the realities of life on the road.

Finally, we catch up with this year’s Choice Music Prize winner, the slightly shocked and dazed Adrian Crowley. Speaking backstage to us, half an hour after winning, Adrian tells us of his joy and disbelief at picking up this year’s award as well as ongoing plans for his next release.

All this, plus a sneaky preview of this year’s SXSW fest and music from The Redneck Manifesto, makes for one hell of a jam-packed 35 mins. So ladies and gents, ears at the ready please, as we begin’¦..

    Name suggestion for the Podcast: Castaway

    How does that grab ye?

  • Simon Roche

    Great show guys – and super nice access to *The Stars*.
    Castaway is a good idea though I can’t help thinking of Amanda Donohoe in the nip when I hear the word. They don’t make ’em like they used to: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092732/

    Great Beach House interview! How nice were they?!

  • Sheridan Whiteside

    Listened to the first two podcasts, really good, keep it up!

    I love the new Beach House album & found the interview interesting…how they made the new album, and the way they respond to different types of crowds.

    I wasn’t familiar with Adrian Crowley’s stuff but liked that song at the end.

    re: the name, naming is hard….I actually like the existing one, it’s got a classic ring to it.
