STACK SESSIONS: BENYARO

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

Ben and Bobby of the NYC outfit Benyaro hung out at the station last Wednesday, played some tunes and shot the shit about their new album, making music in New York City, and why I wasn’t wearing pants during the interview (I think I was, but Bobby might disagree). The interview was excellent, and they also played a few rad new songs, which you can grab below!

Oh, and a quick shout-out/thanks to the RFT music blog, A To Z, for mentioning us. We appreciate it!

STACK SESSIONS: TELEKINESIS + ANNOUNCEMENTS

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

First up, new sessions to announce:

July 12 – Gentleman Auction House
July 13 – Exercise
July 28 – Langhorne Slim

Very excited to have all of the above in the studio to perform, although fitting all of Gentleman Auction House in the lounge is gonna be interesting. There are more sessions being confirmed as I write this, so keep yr eyes on the blog.

I sat down with Michael Lerner, the creative force and drummer behind Telekinesis, for a chat about the process of making the new record and St. Louis summers, among other things. I believe you can hear the Smashing Pumpkins in the background throughout – Billy Corgan, please don’t sue us.
