Under the Radar Presents: “Why Not Both” Podcast Featuring Mxmtoon

Jun 25, 2020

Welcome to Why Not Both Wednesdays. Every week, in partnership with the Why Not Both podcast, we’ll be presenting new podcast episodes that explore how multiple passions inform the inspiring lives of musicians, writers, actors, and creatives.

We dare you to find an artist more charming than Mxmtoon. She chatted with us about breaking it to her parents that she was secretly a viral Internet star with millions of streams on her songs and why she is outspoken about mental health in her music. As a biracial and openly bisexual artist, Maia proves the point that the best way to make changes is to be the hero you want to see in the world.

For updates, follow Why Not Both on Instagram and TwitterFor previous episodes, including U.S. Girls, Mara Wilson, and Alison Mosshart, skip over to our streaming options.

To keep up with Mxmtoon, visit her on Twitter and Instagram. Her new EP Dawn is out now. Take a moment to watch her utterly delightful video for album track “Fever Dream.”

Tolliver

Under the Radar Presents: “Why Not Both” Podcast Featuring Tolliver

Jun 21, 2020

Welcome to Why Not Both. Every week (and the occasional weekend), in partnership with the Why Not Both podcast, we’ll be presenting new podcast episodes that explore how multiple passions inform the inspiring lives of musicians, writers, actors, and creatives.

To celebrate Juneteenth, we talked with Los Angeles artist Tolliver about “I Yield My Time (Fuck You),” his musical take on Jeremy Frisch’s now famous call into the LAPD community meeting. Turns out Tolliver has also been reporting on black owned businesses in the city, crafting songs for multiple projects, and editing videos. In true Why Not Both fashion, his work employs satire as well as pathos to embody our current times, and we couldn’t think of a better artist to celebrate today.

For updates, follow Why Not Both on Instagram and Twitter. For previous episodes, including Sudan Archives, Madame Gandhi, and Sondre Lerche, dive into our streaming options.

For more on Tolliver, peep his “Petty” music video, and then swing by his Instagram and Twitter to say hi.

Mark Foster

Under the Radar Presents: “Why Not Both” Podcast Featuring Mark Foster of Foster the People

May 21, 2020

Welcome to Why Not Both Wednesdays. Every week, in partnership with the Why Not Both podcast, we’ll be presenting new podcast episodes that explore how multiple passions inform the inspiring lives of musicians, writers, actors, and creatives.

Like everyone else, Mark Foster has a lot on his mind. However, as we discussed on this week’s episode, that means the nature of creativity is much like a 4-year-old child or a skittish cat...you have to make it feel safe and welcome and be just the right amount of excited when it comes to visit. The Foster the People frontman also considered how pressure and uncertainty can be hazardous and wild but also can turn into amazing creative work—and how when we all focus on one goal, like solving how Coronavirus is affecting us, you may get amazing and unintended results.
