Black magic

Recorded at the tail-end of last week, Episode 27 of Sounding Bored is devoted to discussion of the album curated by Kendrick Lamar to accompany the latest blockbuster in the Marvel franchise, Black Panther - not so much a conventional soundtrack as an artistic artefact in its own right, albeit one inspired by the movie.

Inevitably, the panel - featuring regular guest David Cox and the returning Josh Wells alongside host Rob - are unable to pussyfoot around plot spoilers, so be warned. But together they make a good case for the cultural significance of both the album and the film, somehow alluding to Ned's Atomic Dustbin in the process.
