The Blasting Company

The Blasting Company


And we jounery into the unknown. But what will they be singing there to greet us?

After listening and watching Over the Garden Wall, it’s still hard to explain. The Cartoon Network mini-series, turned cult classic to straight classic in a few short years, was a longing, autumnal elegy to tapestry of misremembered pasts. Flapper girls giggling along to shape note choirs, beastial operas ringing out over a jukebox, Chris Isaacs smirking in the background. And The Blasting Company were our maestros, giddily skipping through time. So listen to our interview with them and see why Over Garden the Wall was the best of the 10s.

It’s a lonely life. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
