The unmistakable voice of 19 year old Triple J star Jess Cerro aka Montaigne joins host Jeremy Dylan for a discussion of a record that’s currently obsessing and inspiring her - Bat For Lashes’ 2012 album “The Haunted Man”.
They break down the album’s feminist themes, the similarities and differences in how Jess and Bat For Lashes make records, how the album helped Jess deal with a recent personal trauma, building production from the voice out, loneliness vs. collaboration, recording songs on location and writing songs on airplanes.
Plus, Montaigne closes the show with a killer acoustic rendition of her hit single “I’m A Fantastic Wreck”.
