Since being a small child I have always taken things apart to see how they work. Song Exploder is a podcast where Hrishikesh Hirway gets artists to take their songs apart in front of you so you can see how they work. Now at episode 149 the format is proven, all genres are covered.
No matter if its a favourite artist or someone I’ve never heard of, I come away with a more understanding of the skill thats been applied and a better appreciation of the music.
The episodes are released at a rate of about 3 per month (can’t work out the interval) and run for around 15 minutes or so. Each episode ends with the exploded song (track, piece) played through in full so you can hear how it all came together.
