Aimee Mann was recently on a podcast I love called Song Exploder, which is “a podcast musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made”. This ends up giving you a much deeper look into the song, and those responsible for it’s creation. This episode was recorded live on a cruise organized by tonight’s opener, Jonathan Coulton.
Sylvan Esso is coming to Albany with Lucy Dacus on May 24. The show will be at Jupiter Hall, which is inside of Crossgates Mall. Tickets are currently on sale and are $24. Most other shows on this tour are already sold out, so if you’re thinking about going, get your ticket sooner rather than later!

Give a few of the tracks a listen above, and seek out the whole album from your distribution channel of choice.
