Let's Talk About the Zodiac
This week's radio show has two focuses: Free Truman (pop punk from Fargo/Moorhead) & the interview I did with them along with four new limited edition cassette releases from Munich, ND-based label, Barf Cart Recordings.
Be sure to check out the tracklist and Spotify playlist at the end of today's post.
Flanch. Because woah.
Frankie Cosmos has been releasing a bunch of new singles off her upcoming album, Next Thing (April 1 on Bayonet Records), and I couldn't be more hyped.
I adore her songwriting, her voice, the instrumentation, the recording quality - it's just all kinda perfect. I'm gushing, I wish I could see her live next month. Frankie recorded this album (and her previous one, Zentropy) in Johnson City, NY at Business District Recording. Hunter Davidsohn has been running that studio for like seven years now and I'm so envious of the sounds he's able to craft. You can read more here or check out the beautiful vignette of him & studio in the video below.
Matt Farley aka The Very Nice Interesting Singer Man, the writer of "Being a Pallbearer ; Carrying the Coffin", is the man behind Motern Media. If you're a lover of good podcasts, you may have heard him on Reply All. Yes, he actually has like 18,000 songs on Spotify. And yes, he'll write you a custom song for just $35.
And yeah, it's cool, I know, Blanche Blanche Blanche is your new favorite band.
