243. Sarah Blasko on Bjork 'Homogenic' (1997), bad hero encounters, the joy of loneliness and more

ARIA-winning Australian singer/songwriter Sarah Blasko takes us back to 1997, when she fell in love with the strength and dynamism of Bjork's album 'Homogenic'. We talk about inheriting a love of Bjork from her older sister, her unfortunate encounters with Bjork in 2008 when they were sharing a festival bill, the icy sonic world Bjork creates on the album, and how the humor and life ambition gave her inspiration in her own path. Australian listeners can catch Sarah on her national tour over the coming weeks. Head to https://www.sarahblasko.com/shows/ for details.
