Essie Jain shreds on Eighth Avenue

I always have fun doing my weekly interview for Popcast, the Times’s music podcast. Recently I’ve talked to Joan as Police Woman, Reggie from the Black Kids, Donald from the Virgins and Eli “Paperboy” Reed.

This week there’s something very special: Essie Jain, a talented young British singer-songwriter who lives in New York, came in with her guitar and played a beautiful version of her song “Stop” live in our “studio” (converted cubicle — hats off to sound wizard Pedro for making the most of the circumstances). The download is here; the interview begins at about the 12 minute mark, followed by the performance. Enjoy it, and subscribe to Popcast — which also includes record reviews and other assorted audio delights — here.
