DJ Hanabi loves fair food. Corndogs are a staple. Nobody’s talking about them because we’re so wrapped up in gluten content. We need to start talking about corndogs. So, we did.
Today’s episode is a momentous one! Not only are we celebrating the one year anniversary of The Music Digest, we’re also lamenting the departure of DJ Margaret, who will unfortunately be leaving BTR and the podcast. BUT! This show is a good one - we all showcase our three favorite artists or tracks that we were exposed to during our year-long run. Artists that we wouldn’t have heard of or listened to had it not been for the show. And, no worries! Pat and Matt will be carrying on The Music Digest torch and opening a new great chapter in the show’s legacy.
Time to revert back to our solid show format - reacting to new albums after about a week's worth of "digestion." The EP we're discussing today is Destroyer's album Five Spanish Songs, which came out via Merge on November 26th. The five song release is actually covers of the Spanish singer Antonio Luque and his band Señor Chinarro. Dan Bejar wanted to have fun in the studio, make something instantly gratifying, and sing in Spanish. This was the result.
