Episode 10 – The Weather Station – Ignorance

Ep 16 – Billie Eilish – Happier Than Ever This Is Not Happening – An Album Of The Month Podcast

Episode 16 of This Is Not Happening goes as big as it gets with Billie Eilish's new album, Happier Than Ever.  Following angular synth and guitars of Lonelady in episode 15,  we take an album that's already one of the most talked-about of the year, and delve into what it means for us, and the music world. David is bringing us this album. In the second half of the episode, we go for intros, and pick out some of our favourite opening tracks of the albums we love. It's a mighty list, and we've also had some cracking shortlists from Guy here. The tracks we chose were:Joey – Bjork – Human Behaviour from Debut (1993)Guy – Etienne De Crecy – Le Patron Est Devenou Fou! – from Super Discount (1996)David – Bill Withers – Harlem – from Just As I am (1971)Nolan – A Tribe Called Quest – Excursions – from The Low End Theory by Tribe (1991)October's album of the month and all our new tracks, playlists, and chat from the past decade or more can be found on our blog at http://www.thisisnothappening.net, which runs alongside the podcast choices and much, much more. Head down there and hopefully you'll like what we're talking about and if you do, we'd love to hear from you on the socials (links below).Episode #17 arrives with a nod to the dancefloor from Nolan, who picks Dublin artist Mano Le Tough's At The Moment.

Episode 10 of This Is Not Happening finds us sticking with female artists but switching from the UK to Canada with the Weather Station’s Ignorance.  Tamara Lindeman’s group released its 5th album in 2021, and it marks another progression from folk-tinged songwriting to full-blown grown-up pop that touched on so many of our big influences. We all went on a journey with this, with Joey at the helm. We also put together an ‘inspired by’ playlist to sit with the album

In the second part of the show, we jumped off the deep end by picking a new track, secret santa-style for each other! Here’s the longlist, but the four we chose are:

David – Nolan chose: Brother Ali – Sensitive.
Guy – Joey chose: Howlin’ – Bind
Joey – David chose: Charlotte Adigery – Bear With Me (And I’ll Stand Bare Before You) 
Nolan – Guy chose: Vagabon – Water Me Down (Pancy Remix)

April’s album of the month and all our playlists, new music and discussions from the past decade or more can be found on our blog at www.thisisnothappening.net, which runs alongside the podcast choices and much, much more. So check them out so to see what we ‘re talking about and if you like it, we’d love to hear from you. Socials are below. 

Episode #11 will be digging into the kaleidoscopic debut from Genesis Owusu: Smiling With No Teeth . An Australian-Ghanaian whose melting-pot influences have created one of the most fascinating and memorable albums of the year. Coming to you before the end of May.
