261. Stella Donnelly on Broadcast 'Tender Buttons' (2005)

Stella Donnelly is a Western Australian singer-songwriter who wraps uncompromising lyrics in deft playing and aching beautiful melodies. She joins me to talk about the influence on 'Tender Buttons' by British cult favorites Broadcast. We talk about how the album marked a turning point in Broadcast's sound and the life of the band in general, how 'Tears in the Typing Pool' helped Stella find the confidence to tour without a band, the counterpoint between 'ugly' sounds and beautiful words (and vice-versa) and we plan out several genre-spanning Broadcast tribute albums. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it's influenced them. Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins. Edited by Ellie Willoughby.
