Tangents #08 w/ Jai Pyne – Odelay

Tangents w/ Jai Pyne is a part history lesson, part cultural anthropology, dead set bangers. Catch new episode monthly on Mondays 9:00 UK & Ireland time.

The way the show works is that Jai picks a song or album from a particular era, and every time it’s different, this has reinforced for him that great music is made every year.

Tangents 08 takes a look at the 1996 album, ‘Odelay’ by Los Angeles based artist Beck. Lots of alternative, indie, soul, jazz, funk, old school hip hop and more. Produced by The Dust Brothers and Beck, the follow up to his break out album Mellow Gold.
