Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes) with Nilüfer Yanya & Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) with Raphael Saadiq
Welcome to this week’s bumper double feature of a show! We're thrilled to bring you two fantastic conversations recorded backstage at Pitchfork Music Festival 2018: a short chat between Fleet Foxes main-man Robin Pecknold and Nilüfer Yanya, and a deep dive between Dev Hynes—aka Blood Orange—and super-producer Raphael Saadiq. PLUS we've got a brand new theme song created just for us by one of our favorite artists, The Range!
Tune in to hear firsthand accounts of Solange's impromptu shopping trips, how Joanna Newsom helped get Fleet Foxes back together, the inside scoop on Yanya’s upcoming debut LP, how Deadheads influenced Saadiq's musicality, and how Hynes created his powerful brand new album Negro Swan.

Big thanks to Pitchfork Music Festival for hosting Talkhouse, and to Karolina Barej for all of her coordination work.
I'm very pleased to write for the very first time that the Talkhouse Podcast’s theme song was composed and performed by The Range.
