From the title itself, Dissect aims to explore and study the compilation of songs in an album of a specific artist.
Dissect is a Spotify original and is considered a “serialized” podcast featuring these different albums.
To kick off the podcast, Cole Cuchna features Kendrick Lamar’s album “To Pimp a Butterfly” for Season 1. He then features Kanye West’s album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” on its second season.
What intrigued me the most is the season featuring Frank Ocean. I include myself in the numerous people who know of artists such as Kanye and Kendrick, their life dramas and their music ministry.
But Frank Ocean, I barely know anything about this guy. All I know is his song “Thinking ‘Bout You” and that, in particular, got me tuning in to Dissect.
This music podcast is brilliant as it discusses the songs and their connection to the artist’s personal life – what motivates the song and why it was written.
Cole presents each episode in an easy manner. The flow of the content and his choice of words are simple and easy to follow.
After listening to this podcast, you’ll end up knowing more about not just the artist, but more so about the person behind the image.
This podcast is suitable for people who like to explore albums and study the genius behind it. Those who don’t get tired of listening to a certain artist’s unknown songs.
So if you’d like to find out more and beyond Kanye West’s ideology and Kendrick Lamar’s life, then tune in and wait for more seasons to find out who’s next to be dissected.
Dissect’s official playlist is on Spotify and on their website. Follow the podcast on Twitter here.
