    Listen: Chris Thile Talks Bach and More on 'The WTF Bach Podcast'
    Josh Goleman

    Chris Thile is the guest on the latest episode of The WTF Bach Podcast to talk about Bach; his new solo album, Laysongs, out this Friday; and more. Thile is a "virtuoso mandolinist ... a truly consummate musician," says host Evan Shinners. "He also plays Bach extremely well ... With the way that he programs Bach, I feel that he's been one of the more important Bach promoters in our generation."

    After ruminating for a few days on something Thile had told him during the interview, Shinners concludes: "I think that that is the sign of a great musician, really, to be able to say something even off the cuff and have it stick with another musician and influence them and allow them to chew on that little tidbit. Maybe that's just the sign of a great mind altogether."

    David Byrne talks with hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle on Fuse, a podcast from Bomb magazine. "Your music has been in my life for a very long time," Eagle says. "One of my earliest musical memories, when I was like five or six years old ... I think it’s like the second song I ever remember hearing was 'Burning Down the House' ... And, you know, 'Once in a Lifetime' is literally one of my favorite songs ever. Like if I were to make an objective top ten list, that song would be on there." You can hear their conversation here.
