It’s a musical mashup episode in which we mash up two genres that have basically nothing to do with each other. For the first half of the episode, we talk about the pop music sensation BTS and their new-ish album Be. We follow that up in the second half of the episode with a thorough, or at least as thorough as we could be, discussion of the Christmas and holiday music of Sufjan Stevens. This was a really fun episode to do and hope that comes across in the recording. We each had something we were really excited to talk about and I think that excitement filled the whole episode. We really hope you enjoy this one and that it is as fun to listen to as it was to record. Happy holidays everyone.
We talked about this article on BTS and this thesis on Sufjan during the episode
We also put together two Spotify Playlists for the music we talked about this week.
