“Religion is sticky” - Anita Lester, 2014
On the sixteenth episode of My Favorite Album, ghost pop singer-songwriter Anita Lester (AKA Lester the Fierce) comes by to talk about the weird, wild and wonderful Kate Bush and her seminal 1985 album Hounds of Love.
Along the way, they break down classic track Running Up That Hill and the Ninth Wave song cycle and talk about whether this album could be made in the age of shuffle, authenticity vs. sincerity, Bush’s cultural musical roots and how someone turns out when they’re raised on Kate Bush records.
