Podcast #3 – The Music of Twin Peaks

Posted on by 5:4 in Podcasts | 6 Comments

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the end of the television show Twin Peaks; the final episode was broadcast on 10 June 1991. Therefore, the new 5:4 podcast is a celebration of the remarkable music from this unique show. Despite some discussion of the story, those who haven’t yet seen the show need not fear; there are no plot spoilers, and at no point do i mention who killed Laura Palmer. In the podcast i examine the various aspects of the music (mostly composed by Angelo Badalamenti), and how it’s used to bring alive David Lynch’s incredibly vivid and surreal drama. As ever, the podcast – which this time lasts just under 90 minutes – is available in both FLAC and MP3 formats. Read more

Podcast #1 – Antichrist Soundtrack

Posted on by 5:4 in Podcasts | Leave a comment

After thinking about it for far too long, here’s the first 5:4 podcast, devoted to an exploration of the soundtrack to Lars von Trier’s film Antichrist. If you’ve not yet seen the film, be warned that the plot is discussed at length, and in some detail (occasionally graphic). The podcast lasts just under an hour, and is available in FLAC and MP3 formats.

FLAC [175Mb]
MP3 [105Mb]

The soundtrack is only available as a digital download, from the below sites:
Play.com (recommended – 320Kbps)
iTunes store (presumably 256Kbps)
Zentropa (only 192Kbps)
