Weaving together music by Eartheater, Jon Hassell and ANOHNI, Philly’s finest tackles feelings of love through an array of aural angles.
Love is not as simple as a red heart emoji. More like a densely tangled cluster of emotions, the presence or absence of love can totally reshape a person’s world. That’s why it’s such amazing grist for art generally, and for music specifically. With this episode of Transmissions, King Britt examines the facets of love through his own musical lens. Deeply personal cuts from Jorja Smith, Norah Jones and Tirzah are enmeshed between abstract, experimental moments from 0neohtrix Point Never, Max Richter and Laraaji, and even found-sounds from a garden in New Orleans. King also presents his soundtrack remix of “One Kiss” by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa. Like love, this mix gets complicated and is filled with unexpected turns that will tickle your heartstrings.
