Mushroom Group announces very first podcast series

PRESS RELEASE

Melbourne VIC, Australia—Mushroom is excited to unveil the release of its first ever original podcast, 180 Grams. 180 Grams is an ongoing series which tells the stories behind remarkable albums, inviting fans into the lives of some of the most renowned and loved artists of our time. Season one of the 180 Grams podcast uncovers the highs and lows and untold stories from Warrandyte locals to international rock’n’soul group; The Teskey Brothers.

180 grams is the weight of a collector’s edition vinyl record. Unlike the stories in the show, 180-gram records glide smoothly on turntables thanks to the weight.

Across six episodes, as the debut season of 180 Grams delves into the making of The Teskey Brothers’ acclaimed sophomore studio album Run Home Slow – listeners are taken on the journey from pre-production all the way through to sold-out international tours.

180 Grams is a tag-along adventure of creative struggle, teenage friendship and global fame with a universally loved band from the country town of Warrandyte, Victoria. Join music journalist and the Run Home Slow podcast host, Mikey Cahill, each Tuesday over the next six weeks as The Teskey Brothers bare all in learning the ropes of the music business and the pressures of making a second album filled with nuance, tension and carefully crafted songs.

The podcast is filled with little treasures for The Teskey Brothers super fans, including a pattern in the instrumental music used throughout the six-episode series. In order of appearance on the album, instrumental tracks are used to score the narration and guests in each episode: ‘Let Me Let You Down’ (track 1) before switching to stems from ‘Carry You’ for the second half.

Many people who work intimately with the band were interviewed for the series; 32 in total across the USA, UK, Germany and Australia including Josh Teskey (vocals and rhythm guitar), Sam Teskey (lead guitar), Brendon Love (bass guitar) and Liam Gough (drums) who make up The Teskey Brothers. Fun fact: Episode 1 incorporates more than 210 individual bits of audio.
