Glam Rocker Art d’Ecco, Opinions on Drake & Halsey
In the great glam rock tradition, Art d’Ecco is making dynamic, melodic music as his costumed alter ego. Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot talk with singer, songwriter and keyboardist Art d’Ecco about his new album In Standard Definition, influences like Brian Eno and Marc Bolan and more. Plus, the hosts review the latest from Drake and the new Halsey record produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
Jim and Greg share their thoughts on the new record from Drake, Certified Lover Boy. The rapper's sixth studio album comes almost as a response to Kanye West’s new release the previous week, Donda, the latest in an ongoing feud between the former friends.
If I Can't Have Love, I Want PowerHalsey
If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power is Halsey's fourth studio album. This time, the artist teamed up with production duo Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails to create something unlike anything they've made before. Jim and Greg give their two cents on the record and are a bit divided.
For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
