Musician Lou Johnson shares everything he's been into lately, from podcasts to the pair of Nisolos he never takes off.
What have you seen lately that you've loved?
I recently watched “ Call Me By Your Name” and was blown away for a few reasons. Mainly because it is a spectacularly beautiful film but also because I came into it with no preconceptions. I hadn’t heard anything about it and I didn’t see the trailer. It’s rare for me to be totally blindsided by a film and I have to say that I was.
What have you been playing on repeat?
I’m still stuck on Andy Shauf. His latest record, “ The Party” is a minimalist soundscape that I’m still trying to wrap my head around. I love his use of chromatic melodies and odd time to jar you from his otherwise lullaby-like song structure
What have you read lately that you've loved?
I hate to say this, but I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately. I rarely give myself time to sit and read but I’ll throw podcasts on in the car and around the house. One of my favorites is “ Song Exploder” which takes a microscope to some amazing songs to show you how they were made.
What have you worn lately that you've loved?
I recently got a pair of Nisolo's Diego Low Top Sneakers and I’ve been wearing them out! I didn’t think they’d be so versatile but I’ve been wearing them with everything.
