808s & Podbreaks: Elvis, Angel Olsen, & Pop Music Has Always Been Dance Music

It’s a mega 808s special about that good old country twang and that new age dance club mix that’s invading the charts. New Country also isn’t especially new, but remains a star making vehicle that across generations creates images as broadly marketable as Elvis and as spectacularly individualistic and talent driven as the great Angel Olsen. We rant about Baz Luhrmann’s divisive new film, celebrate our half-year favorite of Angel Olsen’s Big Time, and explore the curiously interlinked dance soundscapes of new Drake and Beyonce records (one of them is even pretty good).
