The Noise Pop Podcast
The Noise Pop Podcast is a monthly series showcasing new music discoveries and a diverse slate of guest artists from the independent music scene and beyond. Produced by Noise Pop, San Francisco’s go-to indie music, arts and film festival for over 25 years and hosted by music journalist Adrian Spinelli (Paste Magazine, SF Chronicle, etc..), we deliver engaging episodes that are always rooted in the music that we love and that we know you will too. Past guests have included: Khruangbin, Thao Nguyen, Quantic, Wye Oak, Helado Negro, Speedy Ortiz, Rexx Life Raj, Shigeto, Låpsley, Thievery Corporation and more.

The Noise Pop team is back, marveling at the many giant releases this month. TV on the Radio, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Fleat Foxes and Panda Bear all have albums coming out and the gang discusses their favorites. They also look at the anticipated sophomore offerings from The Antlers and Tune Yards. The show ends with the debut of a new segment, in which, Jaime, Jesse, and Dawson recommend what they have been listening to recently.
