Ep 75: Karen O, Yeah Yeah Yeahs

For the first episode in series 8 of the podcast, Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O talks Stuart Stubbs through her new album with Danger Mouse ('Lux Prima'), meeting Nick Cave, avoiding Lou Reed, and visiting George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch to mix her first audio art installation.

We've also got some new creepy theme music and have switched up our sound – basically, we've cut down on how much we bollox on at the beginning so you can get straight into the chat as soon as possible.
