Admitting Our Musical Guilty Pleasures; Colin Stetson

Email a Friend

In this episode: All this week, we’re talking about musical guilty pleasures. We talk with Grantland writer Andy Greenwald about his claim that he has none – and, we talk with Northwestern University marketing professor Kelly Goldsmith about how the emotion of guilt could be making that Britney Spears track sound even better.

Plus, string quartet Brooklyn Rider shares some of their musical guilty pleasures – including one that inspired us to create a mashup that you won’t hear anywhere else.

And, Colin Stetson is the go-to sax player for groups like Arcade Fire and Bon Iver. But his new album To See More Light is just him on his own– although you might not believe it. He plays live.
