Episode 132: The Return of Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray!

This week on the podcast, our friends Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray are back on the best coast which can mean only one thing: PODCAST TIME. After months of hard work, their upcoming follow up to2014’s Lean Into The Wind is almost ready! Erin and Chris sit down with Kevin for a supremely heady chat about their new album and why it’s their most ambitious project yet, Erin’s fledgling foundation Musica Feminista, and what it means to be outspoken activists in an industry that far too often rewards silence over basic social responsibility.

Plus! We’ve got a new track from the darkly elegant Frog Eyes album, Pickpocket’s Locket, for you to put in your ears. Grab a seat and get comfortable, because here comes one of the best episodes of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast to date.

Episode 105: Open Mic Nights

On our latest podcast Kevin and Adam invite Derek Evry (Musician, man about town) and James Main (Assistant Talent Buyer, Gypsy Sally’s) to the basement to talk about the time-honored tradition of OPEN MIC NIGHTS. No strangers to the scene, Derek and James share stories of time spent at IOTA’s legendary stage that has turned out the likes of Andy Zipf, Justin Jones, Lauren Calve and more, plus dive deep into what makes an open mic night work (or not) and why there are so important music makers and music fans alike. It’s a giant-sized trip down memory lane on Episode 105 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast!

Why You Should Care:

With last year’s Lean Into The Wind, Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray raised enough of a ruckus that Chicago music critic and Sound Opinions host Greg Kot took notice, citing them as not only one of 2014’s buried treasures, but including their song “Blue Dream” on his 2014 mixtape of best songs of the year. Now the California-based quartet which, besides it’s namesakes features DC stalwarts Ben Tufts and Derek Evry is out to impress another group of music luminaries with their new track “Magnolia” as a submission for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest.
