Podcast #012: The unavoidable Drake episode


For episode 12, there was no avoiding the joyless juggernaut that is the new Drake album Scorpion. At 90 minutes long and 25 songs, there is a lot to talk about. So instead, Andrea Cleary and Niall talk about Drake as a popular artist, his feud with Pusha, his relationship with women and the industry’s need to lionise the rapper and R&B artist. OK, so we also talk about where Scorpion sits in his discography. Here’s The Ringer article mentioned.

After that it’s songs of the week and then we discuss three new albums from Gorillaz, Let’s Eat Grandma and J Colleran and Andrea presents an intro to jazz legend John Coltrane in light of the release of an undiscovered 1963 album (Andrea’s accompanying Spotify playlist). Plus, Roisin Murphy isn’t happy.
