Our Managing Director, Andy Chugg produced two tracks on Moses Sumney’s beautiful album, Grae, which we like to think lended to the release being chosen as a high ranking album of the year by NY Times and Pitchfork. Andrew worked with the band Yvette and Moses Sumney himself to record, and edit, hours of improvisational material into what eventually became the tracks “Virile” and “Conveyor,” which you can hear below.
Happy launch day to OTHERtone! The first two episodes, featuring Rosalía and Zendaya (Euphoria, Dune) are up today! The response to the new season has been resoundingly glowing, and in an article published on Friday, December 2, The Guardian named OTHERtone as one of their best shows of the week saying:
“Pharrell Williams has no problem bringing in the big names for his new podcast, a spin-off of his Apple Music show. Malcolm Gladwell, Virgil Abloh and Zendaya are lined up to join Williams and co-hosts Scott Vener and Fam-Lay for their fly-on-the-wall conversations. First up is Latin superstar and collaborator Rosalia, and Williams pulls off the impressive feat of coming across as absolutely genuine even when he compares her to the sun. “Your ambition is a plane, you gotta make sure it lands,” he says in one of his many highly creative Pharrell-isms.”
Keep an eye here as we update you on new episodes and press. Lot’s of exciting stuff to come!
On December 1st OTHERtone announced their return with a trailer giving a sneak peek at their upcoming episodes. The latest Gilded Audio production will have new episodes every Monday and feature exciting guests like Zendaya, Rosalía, Clairo, Tristan Harris, and Jaron Lanier. Rolling Stone, Complex, and Vulture helped spread the news, and we’re excited to share the buzz resulting from each episode as they’re released.
OTHERtone is a glimpse into the minds of our culture’s unicorns, and how they think about life, art, and everything in between. As the “soup to nuts” production team for the show, Gilded is delighted to have a hand in what we know will be one of the most exciting music podcasts of late 2020, well into the New Year.
