Music can mean a lot to a person. A song, an album, an artist or a performance can strike up a wide range of emotion, sometimes with clear intentions, and other times in a uniquely personal way. Memory Tracks is a collection of conversations where a guest shares three songs that never fail to strike up particular feelings, often tied back to a memory forever associated with the music itself. The association could be a call back to a time of great loss, a moment of true love or a specific awa ...

After too long of a break, a new episode is finally here. In 2009, I met Andrew at his co-owned gallery and art collective space in Chicago called Oh No! Doom. Years later, our paths randomly crossed here in Austin at a Deafheaven show, so I asked him to come on and give me his three songs. Creeping Death - MetallicaThe Great Southern Trendkill - P…
 
Miguel came on as a recommended guest from a previous episode, and it was great to meet him and chat about music. I'm now educated about the Jimi Hendrix of the Accordion. Miguel's passion for the Chicano music he continues to be inspired by shines in our conversation.Quiero Besarte A La Noche - Esteban Steve JordanBad Indian - The Gun ClubTake You…
 
Charlie and I spent a fair amount of time geeking out about guitars and production value, especially when one of his song was on my own shortlist of potential Memory Tracks. Turn the bass up in those headphones for the first track to hear the GOAT, James Jamerson. For Once in My Life - Stevie WonderShellshock - New OrderVoodoo Child (Slight Return)…
 
From chasing down bands at Java Jazz to falling in love with her husband more than 12 years ago, Sarah shared her stories connected with these songs as if they were just yesterday. Loved having her on as a long time Austin friend and thoughtful selector of tracks.Yellow Lights - CruiserweightThanx for Staying - Reggie and the Full EffectApparat - K…
 
Loved having Bryan on the podcast to run through his songs. A long ago SXSW acquaintance, over the years I've seen him stay super busy in the music community of Austin. As a creator of Pop Press International, regular contributor at Austin Monthly, author of 33?'s The Beat Happening, and an English teacher, Bryan is all about unpacking the impact m…
 
Honored to have Lars Nilsen on the podcast. I've spent more than 10 years in Austin seeing things that he has programmed in the film community here. It was a real pleasure to meet him in person and listen to his stories tied back to some great songs. Sometimes certain tracks just "harmonizes with your being," as he puts it.Atlantis - DonovanTurn of…
 
Orville brought great music knowledge and insight about songs I was not too familiar with. I dug them. We know each other from playing music together, but hearing his stories tied back to these tracks gave me a greater appreciation for Orville's musical influences and what they mean to him today.I Wish I Was a Girl - The Pink FairiesUsed To - WireF…
 
After a bit of an absence, we're back with episode 32 and an amazing guest who's stories really connected to an excellent selection of music. Hearing Shawnasee explain her evolving association to Franks Ocean's opening Channel Orange track, pre- and post- child birth was heartfelt, and I really enjoyed how she articulated her memories against the f…
 
Episode 30 feels like a milestone, so I was happy to bring Cina on as my guest for this episode. He's a music nerd as good as any, and I loved learning about his path from crafting chip tunes to crawling Radiohead forums as a kid. We also agreed that his last pick is one of the most unexpectedly difficult karaoke songs to ever pull off. Bonus: Cina…
 
Eddie is the last of the 4 key influencers for me starting this podcast, so having him on was extra special. It has been a longtime coming, and he happened to pick a couple of songs that I have strong attachments to as well. Enjoyed hearing about his memories with each of these, and going back to the years when they became important to us.Stand by …
 
I've been looking forward to bringing Jakob on this podcast since the beginning. I'll confess that I had a few too many bourbons through this episode, but the conversation was genuine and I'll always hold this episode dear to my heart. There's a lot to unpack with these songs, and I really enjoyed hearing Jakob's stories around them.It's Beginning …
 
Look at that beautiful new cover art! Josh gets to be the lucky first episode with my new logo, designed by my friend and future guest, Alexis Kraus. And what a good episode to debut the styling with! Josh is a former podcast host himself, and fellow music lover, so this was an incredibly enjoyable episode to record. Really enjoyed hearing more abo…
 
Bryson is a long time friend who I also happened to play music with in past bands. This is the the dude who really turned me onto D'Angelo back in college, for which I am eternally grateful. Loved our chat, but forgot to take a picture, so I'm borrowing an old band promo art designed by future podcast guest, Jakob Clark.Jazz Crimes - Joshua RedmanS…
 
After some scheduling rearrangements, this episode came somewhat spontaneously as last episode's guest, Patty, suggested Tiffany take a seat behind the mic after I had an unexpected opening. She was a terrific guest, and helped continue my push to properly listen to R.E.M. like previous guest Joshua urged.Go - Pearl JamNightswimming - R.E.M.Manches…
 
Patty took to the Memory Tracks concept right away. She confessed that it took her months to narrow down her three songs, so future guests... don't feel like you are the only one stressed. We chat about Patty's college years, moving to Austin, and bonding with coworkers over drinks and music. Enjoy this one!Fool in the Rain - Led ZeppelinNever is a…
 
One of my favorite parts of SXSW is hosting foreign travelers, and this year I welcomed Leticia from Brazil. She took to the Memory Tracks concept right away and we shared a wonderful conversation about some Brazilian musicians and more.Aria Cantilena from Bachiana brasileira No. 5 - Heitor Villa-Lobos, Bidu SayãoOnde Anda Você - Toquinho, Vinícius…
 
Rachael said she was surprised when I asked her to come on the podcast, because she didn't think of herself as big a music fan as other guests. I reminded her that this show isn't about being a music nerd -- it is about exploring the stories written in your brain forever tied to certain songs. Luckily, she agreed and we ended up having an awesome c…
 
I always love hearing the origin stories of people's musical tastes. My friend, Brant, shared the beginnings of his love for metal and how he immersed himself in the many iterations of the heavy sound over time. We forgot to take a photo of this one, so enjoy the album cover mascots from two of the songs we discuss.Moonchild - Iron MaidenPlaying wi…
 
From geeking out on Radiohead to learning more about pioneering synthesizer music, Joshua was a wealth of knowledge and interesting stories and connections to some great songs. I've known Josh over the years to have some very eclectic taste, and lots of passion for creativity in music, so it was really fun getting to unpack these songs with him. Py…
 
Rabie is an old friend from high school that truth be told, I never really got to know that well growing up. But he's been in Austin, like me, for a while, and after a few run-ins and some props on the podcast were exchanged, I knew this would be a fun interview to tape. He brought the first official Kanye song on the podcast, and it goes for 12 an…
 
Ramon is one of my best friends from college and one of the more knowledgeable music fans I know. He's known for his hot takes, and he didn't disappoint in this episode. Ramon's taste is all over the map, but for this episode, we stayed true to his passion for hip hop and covered some of the greats.Ex-Factor - Lauryn HillGuess Who's Back - Scarface…
 
Andy O'Connor is the most metal guy I know. He's been a good friend since college, and I really enjoyed talking music with him. We explored music's importance in his life, and not just the fact that he's a professional music journalist, but that he first and foremost is a fan of so many types of music itself. This was a fun one!Don't Close You Eyes…
 
Gabby was an awesome guest, sharing stories of her dad passing down great music, unplanned moments of friendship at music festivals, and finally a really educational introduction to Puerto Rico history and music. I learned a lot from this one, and loved getting to know more about this awesome co-worker and friend.Neon Experience - Júniús MeyvantPsy…
 
I don't want to spoil the second half of the Wallis interview, but I can say that this was a very, very special conversation. I truly love these wonderful human beings and appreciate them coming onto the show. Hands on the Wheel - Willie Nelson (Matt)The Old Kind Of Summer - The Black Heart Procession (Joy)Maggot Brain - Funkadelic (Matt)…
 
Approaching my 10th episode, I cheated a bit and decided to do something different. I interviewed two very good friends, who happen to be married to each other, at the same time. Walking into the interview, Joy and Matt did not know what tracks the other had selected. We revealed each track one at a time, ultimately splitting the episode into 2 par…
 
Ever wonder what it would be like to have Lin-Manuel Miranda as your english teacher, and accidentally sub-tweet him lyrics of teenage love? This is just one of the amazing stories from my talented and hilarious friend Margaret Kaminski, another Los Angeles guest in town generous enough to sit down for the third episode of Memory Tracks.Romeo and J…
