Britta Phillips (Luna, Dean & Britta) Crashes Your Planet

britta-phillips-on-crashing-your-planet

Jake talks with Britta Phillips about her debut solo album, the synth-driven Luck or Magic. Britta is known for her collaborations with husband and bandmate Dean Wareham, of Galaxie 500 fame. She plays bass in their band Luna and they also release music under the Dean & Britta moniker. Also, perhaps of primary importance, those who came up watching cartoons in the nineties will be psyched to learn that Britta provided the singing voice of Gem, of Gem and the Holograms fame.

She and Jake talk about the pains of social media management, being a “new artist” a couple decades into her career, and the future of Luna.
