Every other week, Anthony Kozlowski pens the Atwood Magazine column Tunes & Tumblers, pairing new and classic albums with cocktail recipes. He quickly found however that drinking alone is a sad business. So he invited his friends into a recording booth to aid in mixing delicious drinks and to discuss the music that they all love. Strap on your headphones and enjoy a cold one on us.
The Tunes & Tumblers gang welcomes Danish musician and producer Oh Land, whose latest experimental album, Loop Soup, is not only a sonic triumph, but also a thoughtful examination of humanity itself.

This week the Tunes & Tumblers bar welcomes Danish musician and producer Oh Land, whose latest experimental album, Loop Soup, is not only a sonic triumph, but also a thoughtful examination of humanity itself.
Naturally we’ll take any opportunity to get existential, so sit back and enjoy this week’s You Soup cocktail as we channel the Sandman, brush off our Pokemon battle skills, and de-romanticize the mental health crisis in the music industry. Turns out depression may not be the key to the Billboard charts.
Lucky for us, this episode is *not* sponsored by BetterHelp…yet…
