Episode 498: Dezron Douglas and Brandee Younger 's 'Force Majeure'
Season 10, Ep. 498
While the pandemic of 2020 affected just about every aspect of our lives, it was professional musicians who may have been hit the hardest. Without the possibility of tours or even an audience, artists who previously relied on performing their work for a living were forced to re-evaluate how they would get by. For many, this meant a shift to DIY streaming performances, which, while they have the potential to offer uniquely intimate connections to artists, have not proven to be a suitable replacement or method of output. Enter bassist Dezron Douglass and harpist Brandee Younger and their series of shows on Instagram.What began as a simple way to connect to friends and fans over “brunch” became a bright spot to look forward to in the early days of the pandemic. Locked down in their apartment in New York City, the two interpreted an entire history of song revealing almost by accident that no matter what the circumstance, no matter how bleak it got, music and art would find a way.Force Majeure, the resulting album of highlights from those performances, is many things, but above all, it is a gift. For all the darkness we ALL experienced this year, despite all the confusion and pain, Douglass and Younger’s spirit manages to illuminate the world and let the listener know how not alone they really are. A musical journey through our seemingly endless days so filled with beauty, humor, and, most of all, life,Force Majeurestuns, not by being flashy, but by being human.

Episode 496: In Conversation with Marcus J. Moore About His New Book "The Butterfly Effect" and Igniting The Black Soul of America
Season 10, Ep. 496
The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited The Soul Of Black America is as much a document of the Compton superstar’s journey-to-date as it is author Marcus J. Moore’s journey from one of the most recognizable and important names in music journalism to a burgeoning cultural pundit whose voice is already having an impact. Moore’s words take you inside the culture that fueled Lamar’s ambitious work and beyond to explore the real-world implications of black excellence and community in an America that still, in 2020, largely rejects both. This week, Moore joins us for a candid discussion of his work, a re-imagined view of creative culture, and how the journey is the thing you can often learn from the most. Love this show?
