Episode 5 - Thor Rixon

Thor Rixon is one of South Africa's musical treasures. He's an ever-evolving and truly unique character who creates impressive art that often resonates with me deeply and almost always leaves me moved in some way or another. I've written about him and his music a few times over the years but I'm really stoked we got to have this longer, more in-depth chat than we've had on the record before.

I think we managed to cover enough for you to get a decent peek into Thor's brain and what makes him tick, and I think there's a lot of value in learning how he's managed to carve out a rather successful career making music that's adventurous and honest.

In this episode, we learn about how instrumental his mom has been in his career, which is why he's named his latest album after her. We also find out all about the embarrassing early days of being in ska bands and being inspired by Jack Johnson, before finding his love of synths and electronic music.

I highly recommend you go listen to Tea Time Favourites and Songs From The Bath before or after listening to this (You can do so here: https://thorrixon.bandcamp.com/), and then look out for Michele, his latest album which will be released on 19 November 2018.
