Talking Heads & Maps & Atlases

Episode 71

In Episode 71, Aaron and Brent spotlight music from two different bands, one from Chicago and the other from New York, that formed while members were in art school.

Featuring a catalog of music that includes everything from the catchiness of pop-influenced hooks to the complex song structures of “math rock”, Aaron highlights three songs from Maps & Atlases.

With a career that includes a beloved concert film, iconic MTV videos and a unique sound that continues to be a musical influence, Brent looks at three songs from Talking Heads.
