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.

STACK SESSIONS: JON HARDY

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Awhile ago, Jon Hardy (of Jon Hardy + The Public) was in the station to discuss the band’s new EP “Little Criminals” (available for free download from the RFT and KDHX) and how they made this totally fucking awesome music video, among other things. You can download the interview HERE, and as an added bonus, there are a few songs from the EP sprinkled throughout. Hoping to have these guys back in for a full-on in-studio, but right now it looks like that won’t happen for another couple of months. Keep your ears and eyes peeled, though.

STACK SESSIONS: CUT OFF YOUR HANDS

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with Phil and Elroy from Cut Off Your Hands about the New Zealand music scene, departed band members, how their sound is progressing, and what it really means to stand around the water cooler at work. They played the Firebird with Viva Voce, and all bands involved put on a killer show. The interview was a lot of fun and you can check it HERE. ((sorry about the sound quality at the beginning, I was still getting a hang on how to use the Marantz)).
