Episode 2 of this season of The Vehlinggo Podcast, out today, is a rather epic one. Film & TV composer Drum & Lace (Sofia Hultquist) and synthwaver Michael Oakley are guests. Their songs and others’ songs are indeed played. Run time might push up against two hours.
Hultquist discusses her fantastic upcoming album, Semi Songs, which features music that is a bit of departure from the sound for which we know her, and she also talks about her work on Erin Lee Carr’s HBO doc At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal and Alena Smith’s upcoming AppleTV+ series Dickinson, among other things.
Oakley talks about his participation in the Vehlinggo-co-sponsored Outland Toronto retrowave festival and tackles issues in the synthwave community, among other things.
Aaron also plays songs by Electric Youth, Orion, Lou Rebecca, and Cassius, the latter in memoriam for the late Philippe Zdar.
It’s a grand ol’ time.
