S4, E8: Talkie Walkie by Air

April 1, 2018

We’re going to France and our passport... is... uh... music! It’s the third studio full-length from Air and it’s called Walkie Talkie, a sadly under-remembered album that sounds as smart and sophisticated in 2018 as it did in 2004. Cam and Sammy remember the times Air were basically the soundtrack to cafe livin’ in the late 1990s and early 2000s, why some bands (i.e. this band) don’t need to be seen live plus why comparing Air to Daft Punk is lame and lazy. The episode ends with a look at Lana Del Rey (her music and her marketing) plus Twin Shadow and a teeny tiny chat about Doug and the Slugs (again).
