Ecstatic Music Festival: Song Exploder Live with Hrishikesh Hirway & Sleigh Bells

  • Merkin Concert Hall 129 W 67th St New York, NY 10036

Celebrated as “The best use of the podcast format ever” (Vulture) and “Possibly the most perfect podcast” (Quartz), the wildly popular Song Exploder podcast features artists like Björk, U2, Iggy Pop, and Carly Rae Jepsen taking apart their songs, and piece by piece, telling the story of how they were made. At this special live event, host Hrishikesh Hirway will askDerek Miller and Alexis Krauss of the Brooklyn rock duo Sleigh Bells to delve into the specific decisions that have gone into creating their exuberantly brash and visceral songs. A “former teen-pop singer turned punk-rock badass,” Krauss displays “the cataclysmic cool of a cheerleader who's just hijacked a monster truck” (Pitchfork).
