I was a bit surprised that you didn’t mention Atoms For Peace given that you’d just discussed Radiohead a few weeks earlier and that Nigel Godrich co-produced this album. (Incidentally, I think I prefer that album to anything either Radiohead or RHCP has done this decade.)
I gave my history with the Peppers on the next episode notes, but given that, I was surprised to find myself kind of liking the sound of this album. The production does do a lot. I do wonder if you’ll talk about Danger Mouse some more in the future, maybe once you return to the present – there hasn’t been much of his that I haven’t at least kind of liked, from Gorillaz to Broken Bells.
