Friday's Fresh Air!!! (7/3/2015)

This week, a really groovy musician, composer, and producer MOCKY, with a new album "Key Change" that'll wiggle yo hips 'til they fall off. No joke

Mocky has put a lot of thought into this recent album, enchanting his tracks with originality and organic structure. He has a lot of interesting input about this album...

On making this album and his creative process Mocky says, "I use samples -  human samples. If you put a musician in the right musical environment for their style, they become an endless sample with no beginning and no end." 

The fact that not a single sample is used on Key Change is a testament to the outside-of-time-quality of Mocky's music. "When I record an instrument today" says the man who once toured with nothing but a sampler and a rapping puppet, "I try to inhabit a character from a place in my mind or an era that could have existed, and when all of these different characters interact, you have a captivating story."

FRIDAY'S FRESH AIR (6/26/2015)

New Band, BULLY, with a new album, "Feels Like". Alicia Bognanno, who is a screaming goddess, creating an emotional album that makes you want to head bang til you forget math. Check this album out!!!




Bully, the garage-punk quartet from Nashville, TN is set to make their debut with the album Feels Like. The band is headed by the fierce Alicia Bognanno who’s loud, punky vocals and crunchy power chords give way to a crowd surfer’s heaven. The various tracks of Feels Like convey Bognanno’s anger, frustration, and confusion with herself and the world accompanied by heavily distorted guitar riffs and upbeat drum fills. The single "Trying" sets the tone for the attitude of the album and transports its listeners back to the land of ripped blue jeans and denim jackets.

FRIDAY'S FRESH AIR! ~~~~ (6/19/2015)

YOYOYO,

super stoked to bring you an artist with an extensive artistic career that keeps on growing.

Check out this week's Fresh Air w/ John Dwyer, under the moniker "Damaged Bug" with a new album titled COLD HOT PLUMBS



John Dwyer has a surprise for us...while we've all been eagerly anticipating the next Oh Sees record, he's been tirelessly working in his synth laboratory as Damaged Bug and has hand-crafted a followup to last year's neon-noir Hubba Bubba that shakes up the snow globe considerably. If Hubba Bubba was a brush with a robotic exoskeleton on deep-space patrol, Cold Hot Plumbs is a visit to the alien world that sent it into the cosmos - lush, textural, psychedelic at times, the songs breathe with a otherworldly sadness and heart, with barbed and sophisticated arrangements flowering in every direction. The vintage-perfect sound palette would be but window dressing if not for the songs themselves, which sound fresh, vital, and above all catchier than the flu. Cold Hot Plumbs is a strange, beautiful, and oddly infectious addition to Mr. Dwyer's oeuvre, and not one to be missed.

Friday's Fresh Air (6/5/2015)

This week you should totally check out Girlpool's new album "Before The World was Big".



Their sound is raw. Comprised only of a guitar, bass and vocal harmonies, Philadelphia based, by way of Los Angeles, two piece Girlpool use stripped-down instrumentation to accentuate their vulnerable and powerful lyrics. Following the release of their self-titled EP, their debut LP Before The World Was Big explores the concepts of growth, friendship, and the interaction between identity and environment. The introspective-punk duo captures growing pains and existential quandaries with an honest and true intention.
