The Thin Air Podcast: Malojian


The Thin Air podcast returns with another delightful in-depth song dissection. This week Danny Carroll meets Antrim singer-songwriter Stevie Scullion AKA Malojian.

Having recorded his last album with Steve Albini (this documentary is worth a watch when you have a spare hour), Stevie wound up home-recording his most recent LP ‘Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home’. Featuring contributions from Joey Waronker (Beck, REM), and Gerry Love (Teenage Fanclub), the album has recently been nominated for the Northern Irish Music Prize.

From his home studio, Stevie talks about the album’s title track ‘Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home’.  Clocking in at nearly six minutes, the song is a Grandaddy inspired epic, featuring bubbling keyboards, strings, brass, and layer upon layer of vocals. For the Thin Air podcast, we hear about the song’s evolution, featuring an early demo, and listening to elements of the finished song in isolation.
