A Moon Shaped Pool (Pt. 1)
The Big Mates discuss Blackadder, James Bond, Trumpton, and A Moon Shaped Pool by Radiohead.
Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Radiohead by taking on the last Radiohead album of this season, A Moon Shaped Pool. They talk about the writing and recording process, the context surrounding the songs, and offer up analysis, opinions, and thoughts from three differing perspectives on music, from being deeply into analysis and music, to not caring for art or critique, and everything in between.
They touch on how little information is available about the process of making this album, the position the band were in whilst they did so, how the album artwork was created, and the circumstances under which the album was released.
Why such a long gap between albums? Is this the last Radiohead album? Are you guys aware of the moon? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?
Our next episode is out on Monday April 10th and will continue the deep-dive into A Moon Shaped Pool.
