64 The Veldt & RIP Manuel Reis

Chavises! The Veldt are back in 2017 with two EPs. And we got to speak to them last year at Reverence in Portugal before any of this happened! It’s a funny old world. A quick warning: it was really windy and unexpectedly noisy, so apologies to everyone.

Daniel, Danny, Marvin and Hayato speak to Antonio about serious issues like being a black artist, mental health in the black community and living in America. But also soap opera problems, hot dog music, time out to meet the fans, time out again to stand in front of the camera, The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation, the Cocteau Twins and Ennio Morricone.

55 DRINKS: Cate Le Bon, Tim Presley & even lower back

Lies! Absolute darlings Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley (friend of the show) are DRINKS and guests in one of the best episodes of Made of Things yet! They talk to Antonio about siblings, haircutting Cate, Tim’s super secret, playing Tremor, capes and dresses, terrible drinks, dogs and wales (the animal). Is the truth even real?

49 Tortoise: John Herndon & fistula round 2

Tortoises! We get the awesome John Herndon on this episode of Made of Things at Primavera Sound last year. John talks to Antonio about the feel of playing in Tortoise, being a fan of Dinosaur Jr, David Essex impressions, massaging grandmothers and Kiss movies. Also, we get weirdly interrupted on the podcast version and dad deals with fistula again.

40 Telepathé: Melissa Livaudais, Busy Gangnes & new year

Polar bears! Telepathé are on Made of Things. Melissa and Busy join Antonio for snacks in a gorgeous evening setting to go deep and all over the place: beer, slang, the human condition, interdimensional space, perception, names, motivations… you know, the usual stuff. Also, what if you were telepathic? And what’s your favorite Beatles song? We could have gone on forever. Loved this chat and so will you!

24 João Correia (Tape Junk, Julie & the Carjackers, Groove 4tet)

Ponchos! Como é carnaval, ninguém leva a mal se este for o primeiro episódio de sempre em que falamos português, com um artista português, em solo português. Pelo menos, uma das três é novidade. João Correia, líder de Tape Junk, Julie and the Carjackers e baterista de Groove 4tet – entre muitos outros e tantos, que não cabem aqui – vem ao Made of Things falar com o António num bocado de descampado do NOS Alive, com aviões a passar e rodeados de polícia. Falamos de temas importantes como respirar, caramachões e se o Ben Harper está vivo! #superbowl

14 Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, KTU, Stick Men, Mr. Mister, etc.)

King Crimson time! Pat Mastelotto, only one of the most amazing drummers of all time, is on Made of Things this week to talk new King Crimson, old King Crimson and Portugal (more or less old and new)! This episode takes place in the lovely city of Brighton, in the UK – on the morning after one of the not that many concerts the band did this year. A total privilege talking with Pat! No joke here!
