Listen Closely: Laurie Anderson - Big Science (1982)

The hosts of the Nialler9 Podcast (Niall Byrne and Andrea Cleary) in conjunction with The Big Romance present the Listen Closely series of listening parties, a night featuring a focus album from an artist we love on the last Wednesday of the month. To accompany the monthly listening party on Wednesday February 28th – 7.30pm @ The Big Romance, we present a Nialler9 Podcast episode all about this month's chosen album.... This month:  Laurie Anderson – Big Science (1982)“This is the time/and this is the record of the time.” An album that was ahead of its time upon release, Big Science draws from Anderson’s multi-media performance art piece United States I-IV, and presents an experimental avant-garde electronics , art-rock and spoken word prophetic dissection of 80s America that spawned a surprising pop hit with the towering O Superman. Andrea takes the lead on why this album is noteworthy and important. Listen Closely is a chance for the music heads, to appreciate a modern classic album on the Big Romance’s warm Toby Hatchett soundsystem with a chat about the record on the night. More info.

Madvillainy turns 20

Madvillainy turns 20

On this week's pod, it's a deep dive into an album from one of our perennial favourites, as it celebrates 20 years. It's the turn of the MF DOOM and Madlib's classic 2004 album Madvillainy by Madvillain, a dense, psychedelic, colourful rap album that quickly cemented itself as one of the best rap albums of all time when it came out on Stones Throw that year. Why is Madvillain so important? It's the sound of two masters of their craft - Madlib deep crate-digging wizz of flipped samples which avoided the musical grid and DOOM’s "tripping off the beat kinda" rhymes which defied expectation and form, and became endlessly quotable while retaining complex and comedic intent. Madvillainy is the sound of two elusive creatives ricocheting off each other’s oddball styles with disorienting brilliance. Niall and Andrea discuss the album's gestation, recording, leak, samples, lyrics and mythology. In January, we hosted a Listen Closely listening party in the Big Romance in Dublin with this album. Our next one will be Wednesday February 28th with Laurie Anderson's Big Science. Tickets on sale next week. Big special extra thanks to Georgia Hallion for editing the podcast.
