The One Who Digs (feat. Björk)

“It’s like digging a hole and moving into it, and listening to a lot of bass, and loving it.” So says Björk of the meaning behind the word ‘Fossora’—the title of her tenth studio album, just released today. On this episode, Hanif and Björk break Fossora down concept-by-concept, from the sextet of bass clarinets that shape the album’s grounded, sonic world, to the album’s themes of digging deeply into our ancestral roots, and the pleasures of setting down new ones. To close the show, Hanif riffs on Fossora’s autumnal vibes with a playlist of music for the coming season. / Music in this week's episode: / Sorrowful Soil - Björk God In Wilson - Dijon let it be me - Joy Oladokun ACTING NORMAL - BLACKSTARKIDS I Don’t Know How To Love - The Drums Longing To Hold You - Black Harmony Pulling Leaves Off Trees - Wallows Sowing Seeds - The Jesus and Mary Chain
