Sharon Van Etten & Opinions on Jamila Woods


“Thirty Frames A Second”Simple Minds

This week, it's Greg's turn to pop a quarter in the desert island jukebox and play a song he can't live without. After the Sharon Van Etten conversation, Greg has the Jupiter 4 synthesizer on the brain and picked one of his favorite songs that expertly uses the instrument. He chose "Thirty Frames A Second" by Simple Minds off their 1980 album Empires and Dance. While Simple Minds is best known for "Don't You (Forget About Me)," Greg prefers their earlier material. The band's usage of the Jupiter 4 on“Thirty Frames A Second”is eerie, inventive and danceable.
