We have a real treat for music aficionados this week, as Edith is joined by Andrew Slater and Jakob Dylan to discuss their brilliant documentary, Echo In The Canyon. The film celebrates the popular music that came out of L.A.’s Laurel Canyon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurel_Canyon,_Los_Angeles) in the mid-60s as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mamas_and_the_Papas) cemented the California Sound (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Sound) . Andrew and Jakob explore the interplay between these artists in a string of informal interviews with many of the key players, and discover how interconnected the creative process became during this now legendary period. Jakob also covered a number of classics from the era with contemporary artists - including Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor, Beck and Josh Homme.
In a unique weekly podcast, Edith Bowman sits down with a variety of film directors, actors, producers and composers to talk about the music that inspired them and how they use music in their films, from their current release to key moments in their career. The music chosen by our guests is woven into the interview and used alongside clips from their films. https://twitter.com/soundtrackinguk https://www.facebook.com/Soundtrackingwithedithbowman/ https://play.spotify.com/user/soundtrackingwithedithbowman https://itunes.apple.com/gb/playlist/soundtracking-with-edith-bowman-episode-132-mary-j-blige/pl.u-6mo4l9mhpzG6x
