FORM x Talkhouse: Fred Armisen and Mary Lynn Rajskub Talk with Lindsey Jordan (Snail Mail) for the Talkhouse Podcast

The trio spoof Queen and Beyonce, cover the Beatles, and much more.

BREAKING NEWS! Indie rock it-band Snail Mail has an all-new lineup! Don’t worry, Lindsey Jordan is still there — only now, so is Fred Armisen and comedian Mary Lynn Rajskub (24, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia).

On our second Talkhouse Podcast episode recorded backstage at the wonderful FORM Fest, the three form a group on the spot, then, with instruments in hand, improvise songs about: How they’re actually the new Snail Mail lineup; Chef Boyardee; Neil Young; “lemon squares that Mommy made”; Jesus’ selective saving tendencies (that one’s titled called “Here Comes The Son”), and loads more.

We also witness spoofs of Queen and Beyonce; hear thoughts on fergiepeepants.jpg; learn about foot fetishists and Wikifeet; take in some sarcastic breakdancing; consider gentle piss modulators; and find out why Mary Lynn is convinced Lindsey needs to get pregnant immediately.
