Song Exploder | Radio Waves

We love podcasts here at Two Dollar Radio Corporate Headquarters. A friend of mine recently introduced me to one called Song Exploder, where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. Each episode is produced and edited by host and creator Hrishikesh Hirway in LA. 

The first episode I listened to was The National dissecting their song "Sea of Love" from their latest album Trouble Will Find Me. I was most interested in hearing about Matt Berninger's lyric writing process. Each episode is relatively short—clocking in at around 20 minutes. The formula is brilliant and engaging. They isolate instruments and sections of songs and then show how they fit together. 

Listen to the episode with Ramin Djawadi where he breaks down the Game of Thrones Title Theme Song:
