Episode 67 - Why Acoustic Guitars are Metal, and Thanksgiving Music with Nathanael Larochette
In this episode we are joined by Canadian composer and guitarist Nathanael Larochette (Musk Ox, The Night Watch, Solo) to talk turkey about all our favorite Thanksgiving songs and more importantly, discuss why acoustic music, and particularly acoustic guitars, are metal. We share with each other how acoustic music has impacted us, why we think it works in a metal context, and pontificate on why we think it has become so popular within metal, and within its own metal adjacent genres.
We each play a song or two that we think exemplifies acoustic music in metal, while Nick and Jason get into some segments such as "T-Shirt of the Day," "FMK," and "Let's Stump Nick." We round out the episode with some listener emails, corrections on dumb statements and glaring omissions we've made, and give a call out to listeners to school us on New Mexican Metal bands.
