Frankie Cosmos Talks with Vagabon for the Talkhouse Podcast

The two discuss a day in the life of an indie musician while backstage at the 2017 Pitchfork Music Festival.

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, Greta Kline (Frankie Cosmos, aka my absolute favorite current band) and Lætitia Tamko (Vagabon, who released one of the best records of 2017) catch up backstage at the Pitchfork Music Festival 2017. The friends and occasional collaborators talk the ins and outs of being mid-level indie musicians in today’s musical climate — working your own merch, fans’ frequent lack of physical boundaries, managing oneself, how to engage with corporate sponsors, and much more. They also take in Tegan and Sara’s deep knowledge of the Brooklyn DIY scene, breaking edge in Paris, and finding wisdom in Kimya Dawson’s LiveJournal.

Big thanks to Pitchfork for hosting Talkhouse at the festival.
