Ezra Koenig, lead singer and songwriter for the band Vampire Weekend, explains why he recently became obsessed with  “I Don’t Think Much About Her No More” by country singer and songwriter Mickey Newbury.  He loved it so much that he even included a cover of the song as a bonus track for the Japanese release of the band’s latest record Father of the Bride.  Listen as he describes why he finds that song so compelling and explores what it was like to apply country music’s direct approach to songwriting to some of the the songs on Father of the Bride.

This Song: Krissy Teegerstrom on “Mojo Pin” by Jeff Buckley
On the last episode of This Song until the fall, Krissy Teegerstrom, a self-made artist, creative consultant, podcaster, and designer at Featherweight Studio talks about how listening to “Mojo Pin” by Jeff Buckley transported her to a place beyond the real and showed her how to follow her creative intuition. Jeff Buckley’s performance style confirmed the idea of creation as a form of devotion and self-expression, something that Krissy, at first, felt like she couldn’t relate to. Inspired by her own roundabout journey to an artistic life, she started a podcast about overcoming obstacles creativity. That podcast, fittingly titled Beyond + Back, has accumulated ten episodes in its first season, talking to artists like Aimee Mann and Billy Joe Armstrong. The second season will be released on  Saturday, June 29th. Recorded at the Tiny Texas Podcasting Festival this conversation with Krissy Teegerstrom is an inspiring look into creativity, the arbitrary obstacles we use to limit ourselves, and what opening yourself up to the unknown can do for your art. — KUTX Intern, Claire Hardwick   Todd V.
