On today's episode I talk to musician Shamir Bailey. Originally
from North Las Vegas, Shamir's music career took off relatively
quickly after signing to XL Recordings at the age of 19. The push
and pull between what Shamir wanted to do and what the label wanted
him to do though eventually ended with them dropping him a few
years later. After a psychiatric hospitalization, Shamir began
making the music he wanted to make, and his latest album Cataclysm,
just released in March, is incredible.
