Ep11 – Genesis Owusu – Smiling With No Teeth – This Is Not Happening – An Album Of The Month Podcast
Episode 11 of This Is Not Happening departs from the ethereal Weather Station to a debut album of rare and mighty impact from Genesis Owusu. Smiling With No Teeth comes from an Australian-Ghanaian whose melting-pot influences have created one of the most fascinating and memorable albums of the year for an artist capturing lived experience in the starkest and brutally honest way. Guy’s at the controls to sing about it from the rooftops. We also went big on music that the album inspired us to dive into.
In the second half of the show, we tasked ourselves with finding a hidden gem we should already know. So much fun to do this, with a longlist here. The four we chose are:
May’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. Take a minute to dip in and you’ll hopefully enjoy what we’re talking about and if you like it, we’d love to hear from you on the socials (links below).
Episode #12 closes out our first year with David going mega-fan on St Vincent’s new album Daddy’s Home. The latest from the vaunted singer, guitarist and avant-garde musical shapeshifter will be coming to you before the end of May.
