Episode 95: Best Of 2014 - DC Edition

Kicking off our two-part wrap up of the year in music, Quinn, Tori and Paul from Hometown Sounds stop by the basement to shine a light on some of the best music DC had to offer this year. Typefighter, The Cowards Choir, Priests, Seàn Barna, Lauren Calve and more all helped make 2014 one of the best years for DC music in recent memory, and it’s only getting better. So tune in as we play some of our favorite tracks and discuss the past, present and future of the scene we know and love on Episode 95 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast – Best of 2014 DC EDITION!      

 


Episode 85: The Cowards Choir

Episode 85: The Cowards Choir

In 2009, DC-based musico Andy Zipf decided it was time for a change, and thus The Cowards Choir was born. What was initially a “solo” project (there were always collaborators) has developed into a full-fledged band featuring fellow DC-area stalwarts Ryan Walker on bass, Ben Tufts on percussion and Adam Neubauer on drums, and October 4th, the quartet released their latest effort, Cool Currency.

Fresh off the release of that EP (and we do mean fresh…as in the morning after the release show), Andy and the guys stopped by the basement to talk about, the making of Cool Currency, the evolution of The Cowards Choir to date, their upcoming slot at the Magnificent Intentions Music Festival, and more.
