Transmissions :: James Yorkston and Nina Persson

Welcome back to the Aquarium Drunkard Transmissions podcast. This week: Nina Persson of The Cardigans and James Yorkston join host Jason P. Woodbury to discuss The Great White Sea Eagle, their low key and homey collection of folk rock.

Created in collaboration with the Second Hand Orchestra, it’s saturated with soul and kind wit. Calling in from their respective places in Sweden and Scotland, Persson and Yorkston joined us to discuss how the improvisatory album came together, and from there, we explore a bevy of interesting topics, including run-ins with members of Black Sabbath, Nina’s interactions with Tom Jones, Yorkston’s ill-fated tour with John Martyn, and much more.
