Let’s go! Allons-y! The Third Men Podcast is proud to present an all-new extended interview with not one, but TWO special guests this week! Here to discuss their recently released EP Palladium, we’re joined by returning guest and top-tier TMR recording artist Olivia Jean, alongside legendary musician, songwriter, animator and illustrator Elinor Blake, aka April March! This past spring, Elinor and Olivia treated fans to a collaboration many months in the making, with a 6 track EP and corresponding 7″ single release encompassing a multi-lingual, multi-arrangement study on the track Palladium by Liz Brady (originally written as The Hip by 60’s Texan rockers The Sparkles). Recorded in July of 2020, Elinor and Olivia’s self-produced collaboration also features the talents of Erica Salazar, Austin Seegers and Cody Clayton, capturing the spirit and energy of Olivia Jean’s latest live sets with sizzling results. Of course, with two titanic talents such as these two on hand, we had to dive deeper! Jack White fans will also remember Elinor Blake for her excellent illustrations within the We’re Going To Be Friends children’s book and corresponding cover single back in 2017 – as well as a multitude of other musical milestones through the course of her career. We discuss Elinor’s early days (both in the visual and musical arts) as well as conduct a much-needed catch-up with the latest happenings in the world of Olivia Jean. Which iconic comic book artist was Elinor tasked with retrieving from the bar during her first internship? What is the secret origin of the shiny and mysterious Holly Grail? Which dance would win in a You Got Served-style dance competition: the “Deborah” or the “White Boy Shuffle”? The answers to these questions and more await you in this excessively fun extended interview! Let’s go! Allons-y!
