Just wrapped up the podcast that I did with UNLIKELY FRIENDS (members of BOAT and Math and Physics Club) a while back. They came by the ol' Basement and played some songs and chatted about baseball, bands, and just the love of the game (whatever the game may be). They open up for Death Cab for Cutie tonight at the Paramount here in Seattle (poster above by the fantastic Derek Erdman). Head over to the podcast page to give a listen; I recommend tailgating before the show and blasting this in the parking garage.
The podcast is back! Episode #13 is up over on the podcast page, and features a long conversation with Sam Cohen, guitarist/songwriter/producer extraordinaire. Sam is well known for his work with Apollo Sunshine, Yellowbirds, and just released his first proper solo record (Cool It) earlier this year. Sam plays the Pickathon Festival in Portland, Oregon this weekend. Go have a listen.
I just published a new podcast with The Dodos over on the podcast page. Go give it a listen at your earliest convenience.
More podcasts coming up soon with Ryan Allen (Thunderbirds Are Now/Destroy This Place/Ryan Allen & His Extra Arms), Zach Norton (Party Dungeon/The Fruiting Bodies/ex-Child Bite), Sam Cohen (Apollo Sunshine/Yellowbirds) and more! Keep your ears peeled.
Catching up on some podcasts that I've recorded but needed to get published for a while. Milwaukee's best (Trapper Schoepp and The Shades) were in Seattle a couple times this year already, and I managed to win a coin toss and get them down in the basement for some late night chats and song-singin'. Head over to the podcast page to hear us talkin' baseball, big boots and just plain goin' bossanova.
Philadelphia's Dr. Dog are easily one of the finest, most consistent bands working today. Their live shows (documented beautifully on their new double live LP Live At A Flamingo Hotel) showcase a band with an incredible quality control over their own songs , who constantly push the boundaries and growth of even their oldest material, teetering precariously at times on the precipice of jam band territory without ever falling into the noodles. I had a chance to chat with drummer Eric Slick when the band came through Seattle recently, and just put it up (along with his lovingly curated playlist) for your listening pleasure over on the podcast page.
I've been playing catch up down here in the basement, and finally getting around to editing and posting this podcast and Basement Session that I recorded in December with Alex Robert of the Seattle-area band Black Whales. Run over to the podcast page and give it a listen and download some exclusive Basement Session songs that Alex recorded with me. Black Whales are playing this Friday, February 20th at the Columbia City Theater in Seattle along with The Mama Rags and Prom Queen.
I just recorded a couple new podcasts this past week, so be on the lookout in the next few days for episode #9 (Eric Slick of Dr. Dog) and #10 (Tony Ruland and Kyle Holland of the new band Soft Sleep, featuring former members of The Lonely Forest/The Globes/Cumulus/Death Cab For Cutie). Good sounds a-comin'. Keep hitting refresh.
We recently had the chance to chat with the wic-ked-ly talented Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals/Neon Neon/Gorillaz) when he came through Seattle. We chatted about his new film/album/book (American Interior), as well as his songwriting process and some of his creative tools. Head over to the podcast page for a listen!
