Episode 82: Lauren Calve

In this week’s episode we sit down with up-and-coming singer/songwriter Lauren Calve. Soulful, storied and powerful are just few of the words that come to mind when talking about her debut EP, Between The Creek and the Tracks, and Lauren filled us on the inspirations for her music, the unique recording experience (in a barn!!) that produced her debut, and much, much more. So tune in and meet an artist that you’re going to be hearing a lot about soon on Episode 82 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast.

 


Episode 81: Tweedy - Sukierae

Episode 81: Tweedy - Sukierae

In our latest episode: We review the new album Sukierae from Tweedy. Wilco front-man Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer may have the most appropriate band name ever, but does that familial familiarity translate to record? Is it nepotism, genius or somewhere in between?  PLUS! Rawk feuds, U2 proposes a new music format that will “save the industry” and snacks - oh so many snacks - on Episode 81 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast!


Sylvan Esso @ The Howard Theatre - 9/13/14

Sylvan Esso @ The Howard Theatre - 9/13/14

Saturday. The Howard Theatre in Washington, DC. Two young musicians whose resumes – work with bands like Mountain Man, Megafaun, The Rosebuds, Feist and more – each run a mile long take the stage armed with only a microphone and a laptop rig. What spills out over the next hour is some of the most inventive, exhilarating, forward thinking and humanizing music of 2014. Maybe of the past decade.

Consider this: Sylvan Esso’s debut album was recorded in a living room. By two people. It combines elements of electronic music, folk, soul, indie pop and more, all coalescing into a simultaneously sparse, yet lush, groove that speaks as much to the listeners heart as it does to their ass.


Episode 80: Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams

Episode 80: Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams

In our latest episode we review the latest release from alt-country/pop superstar Ryan Adams, taking some detours through the late 80’s and artist/press relations along the way. PLUS! U2 just dropped a new record in your iTunes. Happy? Sad? What does it all mean?!! We try and get to the bottom of it in Episode 80 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast!


Episode 79: Ty Segall - Manipulator

Episode 79: Ty Segall - Manipulator

Love him or hate him, Ty Segall has proven to be one of the most prolific and consistent artists working in music today, and on his latest effort, Manipulator, he airs out the garage a little to produce his most polished work to date. Does it work? Is it the “album of the year” as many have claimed? Kevin, Adam, and Quinn get to the bottom of these questions PLUS consider the art of the ridiculous band name on Episode 79 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast! 


Episode 78: Cold Specks - Neuroplasticity

Episode 78: Cold Specks - Neuroplasticity

In our latest podcast we head straight into the danger zone…of completely blown expectations. The gang takes on Neuroplasticity, the latest from “doom soul” purveyor Cold Specks, and the results aren’t quite what Kevin expected. PLUS! All of the Sturgill Simpson gushing this week isn’t over, as Kevin and Adam recall Simpson’s barn-burning performance at the legendary Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, VA. All of this and brand new way to get in touch with us to reward those who stick with us to the end of Episode 78 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast.
