Episode 302: Faunaphor (Louis Weeks & Noah Berman)

Together or apart, long time musical collaborators Louis Weeks and Noah Berman have been creating some of the most forward thinking pop music of the past few years. When they started working on their latest project, it was familiar, yet different, and called out for something new. Out of this new collaboration, Faunaphor was born along with an exciting new phase of these old friends careers.

At the beginning of the Summer Louis and Noah joined Kevin in the basement to talk about And There I Was, the debut album from Faunaphor, what comes next and the inescapable pull of John Wick.

Why You Should Care:

DC-based keyboardist Louis Weeks and guitarist Noah Berman have been creating music side by side for a few years now, but today, they are debuting music under a new moniker – Faunaphor. The vintage synths and sparse percussion paired with dissonant piano chords making their presence at any given moment makes this a slight departure from the pair’s previous work, but Weeks’s vocals are as calm and assured as ever here. Faunaphor’s debut album And There I Was is due later this year.

If there’s one thing the band Kingsley Flood knows about, it’s change.

In 2012, their album Battles took them back and forth across the country and all the way to the mainstage at the legendary Newport Folk Festival. It was an album that dealt with the everyday struggles of an “everyday guy”, and the songs reflected front-man Naseem Khuri’s struggle with issues of equality, a running theme in most of the band’s work.

Episode 192: William Tyler - Modern Country

Noah Berman (Louis Weeks) and Ian Taronji (The Lucky So & So's) are both formidable guitarists with connections to the DC scene. Kevin is also a guitarist, minus the formidable. Together the three are going full wonk on the instrument that has, in no small part, shaped their lives.

William Tyler is a guitarist. He is not connected to the DC scene. He also is not a hack. His new album Modern Country aims to prove that and then some.

Remember that time the band Avers rocked the f@#@ out of 2014 with their album Empty Light? Well, they're back, and we've got the first single off of their upcoming sophomore LP, Omega/Whatever, for you to shove in yer earholes and enjoy.

Any questions?
