Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! To prepare for you for crowded airports, jammed freeways, family tension and delicious food, Team This Song offers up tales of musical epiphanies.  In the first half of the podcast Alex Trimble, lead singer of the Irish indie rock trio Two Door Cinema Club, explains to  Taylor Wallace how Beck’s “Midnight Vultures” album illustrated the concept of music-making without rules and in turn reinvigorated his songwriting.  We then hear from Adrianne Lenker and Buck Meek from the Brooklyn-based band Big Thief as they describe how “The Leanover” from Life Without Buildings and the work of Michael Hurley inspired them and lead them to approach their songwriting and musical performances from completely new directions.
