An architecture and design podcast made in Ireland - Buildings are everywhere and right now we have never been more aware of the built world around us. But what are the stories of our buildings – who designs them, who pays for them, who uses them, what of their architecture – why do some buildings survive and other buildings die and why do some buildings become sites of protest or others get attached to our very identities? In this podcast host Emmett Scanlon speaks to a range of people abou ...

Minimal techno is considered a minimalist sub-genre of techno. It is characterized by a stripped-down aesthetic that exploits the use of repetition, and understated development. This style of dance music production generally adheres to the motto less is more; a principle that has been previously utilized, to great effect, in architecture, design, visual art, and Western art music. The tradition of minimalist aesthetics in Western culture can be traced to the German Bauhaus movement (1919 to ...

This week we’re discussing every album by Bauhaus. Credited with pioneering goth, Bauhaus took elements from punk, post-punk, reggae, and horror to create a completely unique and influential style. Don’t let the makeup and black clothing distract you—these guys were awesome songwriters. Closing track: “Double Dare” from In the Flat Field (1980) Che…

We walked it just for you, capturing the sights, the sounds, and the vibe of a building that has stood in the heart of Madrid for many years. In the midst of the hustle and bustle, we consider how the Spanish capital is changing, characters from Cervantes, and as always, much, much more. Apart from some sirens at the very start, it's easy listening…
 
Research Triangle Park in North Carolina is the largest planned research center in the United States, and it’s getting bigger - much bigger, at least in terms of buildings. During its first heyday in the 1960’s, Research Triangle Park boasted several Modernist corporate campuses, most notably aul Rudolph’s complex of buildings for Burroughs Wellcom…

This week we’re discussing every album by Audioslave. If for some reason you haven’t heard of these guys, it’s Rage Against the Machine but with Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell on vocals instead of Zack de la Rocha. Audioslave was a juggernaut of a supergroup and were one of the biggest rock bands in the early 00s. Musically, not the most innovative or…
 
Architects like Chambers, Clark, Cody, Frey, Kaptur, Krisel, Wexler, and Williams put the Modernist architecture of Palm Springs on the map from the 1940’s through the 2000’s, and in Hugh Kaptur’s case, still going at age 90. Behind them are a new generation of Modernist architects and today we talk with one of the area’s most successful, Sean Lock…
 
We ponder mindbending mirrors, cider-heads, feathers, Pisa, reality, psychology, neuroscience and the meaning (or lack of) behind the mystery of the Magritte Machine.

This week we’re discussing the short discography of Rites of Spring. Credited (along with Embrace) with helping to create emo-core, Rites of Spring went wild during their brief existence. They played only a few shows—destroying all their equipment in the process—but their influence remains today. Singer Guy Picciotto and drummer Brendan Canty went …

This week we’re discussing every album by the Melvins from 1999 to 2010. This era of the band has two legendary lineups. The first is with Kevin Rutmanis on bass (Cows, Tomahawk, Hepa-Titus). The second is with Big Business’s Jared Warren on bass and Coady Willis on second drums. This era shows the Melvins evolving more than they ever have before. …
 
When we hear about a Modernist house by an important architect being bought and destroyed, there’s widespread outrage from preservationists. Why didn’t these people try to save them? Why didn’t the buyers consult architectural historians? The owners should be forced to do whatever it takes, and whatever it costs, to keep the houses intact, right? I…

Our buddy Matt Berlinsky from the Stone and Steel podcast joins us once again to dissect all 12 of Glenn Danzig’s solo albums—oh yes, even the Elvis one. If you haven’t heard Danzig’s first 4 records, you need to stop what you’re doing immediately and get on it. The dude was a songwriting powerhouse…

A night of reading, presentations and music, where we got to grips with Joyce's love of dancing, sport and food, and where we happily got lost in the worlds of Dubliners, Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses. A huge thank you to everyone who participated and who came to celebrate with us. And before you go, read our piece about James Jo…
 
It's been a while, but we're back with another Loose Ends. This time, we're covering John Garcia's Vista Chino. Made up of John Garcia, Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri, and bona fide Josh Homme copycat Bruno Fevery, Vista Chino is essentially a Kyuss reunion. Although they were forced to change their name due to a lawsuit by Josh Homme and Scott Reeder. …

This week we’re discussing every album by Talk Talk. Led by the late Mark Hollis, Talk Talk became an 80s new wave juggernaut with their hit “It’s My Life” (famously covered by No Doubt years later). However, over the course of their 5 albums, they transformed in ways you wouldn’t believe. By the end of their career, Talk Talk essentially invented …

This week we’re discussing the only album by grunge supergroup Temple of the Dog. As a tribute to Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood, Chris Cornell recruited Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron, as well as almost every member of Pearl Jam (Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Mike McCready). This is a somber and beautiful record that most gru…
 
The European Union has some of the same problems we do: damaging climate change, a flood of immigrants, and a population frequently in disagreement. But while America argues vaccines and pounces on Hamilton’s uber-inclusive Lin-Manuel Miranda for not being inclusive enough, the EU President Ursula von der Leyden created the New European Bauhaus Hig…
