043 - Radio for June

Stephen and Tom LaVine have been making music together almost as long as they have been brothers. Now, under the name Radio for June, they are making the kind of music you might want to hear on a summer drive in the mountains or around a late-night campfire. Check out this video from their Hoodoo Session before the full episode drops next week at http://bit.ly/localbandpod
Follow their Facebook page at http://facebook.com/radioforjune and give the full-band arrangements a listen on Spotify.

042 - State of Illusion

State of Illusion has been a presence in the upstate music scene for over a decade. In fact, my old band (which gets name dropped) played with them a few times back in the day. Time has progressed and the band's lineup has changed, but it still has a lot of heart on top of skilled musicianship. Check them out at http://stateofillusionmusic.com

041 - Welcome Center

Welcome Center is Aaron and Jesse, respectively from Philly and Dallas. They work over the web to write their synth-laden songs, load them into a sampler, and hit the road. I managed to grab them for a session and we had a fantastic time.

040 - Prozac Dreams

This is pretty much the last Pablo Generation session on Hoodoo. Jackson Wise (Apricot Blush) and Brandon Gallagher (like... every band) shook the whole attic room where we recorded this episode with their mighty rock n roll. This is one of the funniest episodes of the show, IMO.

039 - Thunderbite

I took a little trip down to Soda City (Columbia) to party with a friend who was graduating from Mortuary School. While I was in the area, I took the time to get to know these cool kids: Thunderbite. We recorded a little session, interview, and talked to the drummer's PunkDad(TM) in the garage for a bit. Check them at http://thunderbite.bandcamp.com and follow this show at http://bit.ly/localbandpod

038 - Daddy's Beemer

Daddy's Beemer (or sometimes just dadsbeem) are the current residents of a house called Pablo. They're the Pablo Generation band that sort of started it all. Check out their brand of indie rock on this episode and enjoy a bit of their brand of silliness.

037 - Honeyfitz

Elihu Jones, aka Honeyfitz, is not related to me in any way as far as I know so this isn't nepotism. Just stop it.
Now that that's out of the way, this falls under the category of one of my favorite episodes. Elihu does some impressive loopwork that translates from recording to live performance in an incredible way. Don't miss this one. Follow all of his stuff by visiting http://honeyfitz.us

034 - Morgan of the Pines

Tried to get these dudes on the show a year ago. Schedule issues prevented that. Got em' now though. Check out this dark, southern gothic folk. It's a spooky good time.

033 - Wallpaper

Wallpaper is another great Pablo Generation project. This music is so chill- I personally describe it as a "soundtrack to falling in love." Check them out at http://papercoveredwalls.bandcamp.com - Follow and support this show at http://bit.ly/localbandpod

031 - Insideout and Backwards

These kids have talent and heart. I'm mentally exhausted so I don't have many more words today. But check them out and let their sound tell you everything you need to know. You can hear them in this episode and at http://insideoutandbackwards.bandcamp.com

030 - Finding Freedom

Finding Freedom believes that "Genre is a Social Construct." They like the freedom to experiment musically, and they do it well. These guys are also super nice.

028 - Hugger Mugger

Their sound is unclassifiable beyond maybe "electro dance rock" but it's heavy and driving. I had a fun evening hanging out with Hugger Mugger and tapping my foot along to the beat like I'm some kind of old fart who taps his foot to the beat (I am).

025 - Stuyedeyed

This is the first touring band to appear on the show! They were in town a little while back playing with Brother Oliver and Banditos, and they were kind enough to sit down to a session with little ol' me. I enjoy this sound. It's... hard to pin down... But great! If you're ever in Brooklyn, or if they're ever playing near you, go see them. Check them out: http://www.stuyedeyed.com
