A new true crime podcast released Thursday, Suburban Shadows, apparently consists of nothing but eerie piano plinks. “When you start the first episode, your ears will be met by the lurching, off-beat piano music you’re expecting,” host Melanie Lang explained, “And this haunting melody will continue for the entirety of that episode and all that follow. You’ll hear one echoey note after another, with long, ponderous silences in between, for 50 minutes every week. It will be a gripping tale of the flaws that plague our criminal justice system.” Lang added that she will only interrupt the dreary, staggered piano playing to deliver a message from Squarespace midway through each episode.
