40: JFDR on Matcha 40: JFDR on Matcha Sat, 17 Feb 2018 12:00:00 GMT 42:20 5a86172aca3f4a0f7df4ca57 yes https://shows.pippa.io/talk-the-line/jfdr The One About Tea full 40 Jófríður Ákadóttir is one of Iceland's most talented and productive young musicians, and at age of 24 she's a veteran of the Reykjavík music scene, with eight albums under her belt and acclaim from the likes of fellow Icelander Björk.

Jófríður's been making music since she was 11 and her first band Pascal Pinon grew out of a fake radio station she invented with her twin sister Ásthildur during a hike with their mother. 

Three years later Pascal Pinon self-released their debut album and Jófríður's DIY attitude and collaborative approach led to central roles into two more bands - the electronic trio Samaris and Icelandic trap collective GANGLY.

She's collaborated with the likes of Lapalux and Dena and last year she dropped Brazil, her first proper solo album under the name JFDR.

Jófríður has been a mainstay of the annual Iceland Airwaves music festival, playing almost every year, and that's where we met her to talk about her obsession with matcha, against the backdrop of Kumiko, a teahouse in the hip Grandi area.

Of course the fake band proved to be something of real substance and soon Dream Wife were putting on some of the best live shows around and recording tracks like their signature anthem "Somebody", inspired by the SlutWalk, the grassroots protest march that calls for an end to rape culture.

Dream Wife also collaborate with the Girls Against campaign, which was formed by three teenage girls to raise awareness of, and reduce sexual harassment at gigs and concerts. At their concerts they make sure there's an even footing between performers and audience and they on a mission to support women taking up space at shows. 

Icelandic-born and California raised Rakel Mjöll is Dream Wife's singer and was already a veteran of the Reykjavík music and arts scene before she headed to the UK to study. She's sung with bands such as Útidúr, Sykur and Halleluwah and comes from a highly creative family of that includes her uncle Ragnar Kjartansson — the famed performance artist. 

As Rakel tells us, Icelanders are incredibly protective and proud of their culture and past which is rich in tales of monsters, spirits, elves and trolls. This is shown through their passionate storytelling, which has occupied a central place in Icelandic history since the first settlers from Norway and the British Isles reached the island in the late 9th and early 10th century.

He’s worked with the likes of Björk, Current 93 and Psychic TV.

He’s a longtime collaborator and friend of Sigur Rós and this year he designed a rune for their inaugural arts festival Norður og Niður which takes place on the shortest, darkest days of Iceland's Winter later this month. The festival’s name translates as 'may you go north and down’ which means telling someone or something to go to hell.

Hilmar is also the allsherjargoði - the "high priest” of the Ásatrúarfélagið - Iceland’s pagan religious church which he joined at the age of sixteen, shortly after it was founded. It’s a religion of respect and tolerance that reflects the Icelandic society and its values and we met him in Reykjavik during this year’s Iceland Airwaves festival to him to find out more about paganism.

As a seventeen year old growing up in Watford, Shahid was turned onto the possibilities of music after hearing Timbaland and Aaliyah’s ‘Try Again’ but he only began making music 11 years ago.

His career was kickstarted by a grant from the Princes Trust and an appearance on Deal or No Deal which netted him the forty grand he used to fund a collaboration with Bashy. The resulting track “Black Boys” became one of the first UK urban tracks to be playlisted on MTV Base . 

His breakthrough came in 2013 when “La La La” shot to number one. The song featured a relatively unknown Sam Smith and since then Shahid has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Emilie Sande, Popcaan, Janet Jackson and Missy Elliot. This year he’s back with a Joe Jonas collaboration which is the first song taken from his second album. 

Shahid is a real foodie and has become well known for feeding his artists in the studio, whether it’s rustling up a lamb kofte for Sam Smith, a spicy curry for Zayn Malik or a cottage pie for Mary J Blige and today we’re talking to him about his love of home cooking.

Natti was born in the mountains of Switzerland, but raised in Devon and the New Forest by her bohemian Madonna and ABBA-loving mother who’d drag her to WOMAD every summer.A teenage obsession with Avril Lavigne set Natti on the path to music and she stared drumming in her first band when she was 11.

She thought she’d end up becoming a doctor, but applied to drama school on a whim and that’s where she met her future bandmates.

Natti’s the first guest we’ve had on Talk The Line to choose a book as her particular obsession and it’s one of the most popular non fiction books of the last decade: Yuval Harari’s Sapiens.

Natti Shiner is the principle singer, songwriter and synth player in Fickle Friends, the hardest working indie-pop band in the UK right now.

Natti was born in the mountains of Switzerland, but raised in Devon and the New Forest by her bohemian Madonna and ABBA-loving mother who’d drag her to WOMAD every summer.A teenage obsession with Avril Lavigne set Natti on the path to music and she stared drumming in her first band when she was 11.

She thought she’d end up becoming a doctor, but applied to drama school on a whim and that’s where she met her future bandmates.

Natti’s the first guest we’ve had on Talk The Line to choose a book as her particular obsession and it’s one of the most popular non fiction books of the last decade: Yuval Harari’s Sapiens.

28: Torres on ASMR 28: Torres on ASMR Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:06:34 GMT 33:50 5a0e988ad4f63e187eff7e0b yes https://shows.pippa.io/talk-the-line/torres The One About Tingling Scalps full 28 Torres - aka 26-year-old musician Mackenzie Scott - talks about her experiences of ASMR and its triggers.

Three Futures, Torres' third album, was released last month and grew out of the idea that music could be enjoyed and experienced by all five senses. 

One of its dominant themes is a celebration of the body as a mechanism of joy and so it's no surprise that she chose Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) as her subject for our latest podcast exploring celebrity obsessions and passions.

ASMR describes the tingling sensation on the skin that usually begins on the scalp and moves down the neck and spine in response to external stimuli - often acoustic or visual. Things such as softly spoken voices or quiet, repetitive sounds are the kind of things we're talking about and there's an endless list of YouTube videos out there to trigger an ASMR.

We met with Mackenzie Scott in Reykjavík earlier this month where she was performing as part of Iceland Airwaves.
