Steve Gunn

Greetings Dead Freaks!

Here on the latest episode, I speak with Steve Gunn about his latest album, "Other You", the benefits of collaboration, and moving effortlessly between songcraft and improvised music. You'll hear a cut from the new record as well as a hefty slab of Grateful Dead.


"Other You" is out now on Matador Records. You can find it wherever records are sold and/or streamed as well as on the Matador Record Website and Steve Gunn's bandcamp: stevegunn.bandcamp.com.

His most recent Gunn/Truscinski Duo album, Soundkeeper, can be found via Three Lobed Recordings, also on bandcamp.

Steve Gunn's thoughts on the passing of Michael Chapman can be found on the always excellent Aquarium Drunkard: here.

As I mentioned on the show, please don't hesitate to reach out, via email, twitter, or in the comments below, if you have listening recommendations  from the current Dead & Co. tour. I look forward to hearing from you.

Powers/Rolin Duo

 

Greetings Dead Freaks!

This week I have Jen Powers & Mathew Rolin of the Powers/Rolin Duo on the show. We talk about improvised music, their work as a duo, individually, and their new album with Jayson Gerycz (Cloud Nothings). After our chat, I spin a lengthy mix of Grateful Dead because, what could be better?

"Lamplighter" from Gerycz/Powers/Rolin is out on Friday, September 3 and you can get your copy via Bandcamp. Their previous release, "Beacon" can also be found on Bandcamp at this link. Both are outstanding and highly recommended.

You can also grip the terrific record from the Powers/Rolin Duo, "Strange Fortune" from this Bandcamp page

Matthew Rolin cites his own bandcamp page a couple times, and I think he's referring to this one

That's a lot of links.

Dave Harrington of Darkside

 

Greetings, Dead Freaks!

On this episode, I am joined by Dave Harrington. Dave has a lot of musical irons in the fire but his band, Darkside, has returned from hiatus with a new album entitled, Spiral. We talk about putting the duo back together, improvisation, Dave's numerous other projects and, of course, Grateful Dead. 

After the chat, there is a heavy dose of 1974 Dead to keep your head right for late July. Nothing beats the heat like blowing your mind. 


Be sure to check out Spiral, the latest from Darkside, on your favorite streaming platform, directly from Matador Records, or on Bandcamp. You can find Dave's Big Shapes Vol. 1 and lots of other great music at DHGroup.bandcamp.com.

July Mix

 

Greetings, Dead Freaks!

I've got a fresh episode today with no guests and no reason for being other than to entertain all of you. There's not a lot of talk here this time, either, other than to direct you to my guest spot  on the Deeper Listening Podcast which, I believe, will be out this week. So, if you want to hear more of my voice, make sure you follow them on Twitter or subscribe at Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. 

The mix this week has some great songs, deep jams, and no conscious theme. That said, I think it hangs together pretty well. I hope you enjoy it.

Buck Curran


 Greetings Dead Freaks! In this episode I chat with Buck Curran, a terrific musician known for his work as one half of Arborea as well as his more recent, excellent, solo work. His third solo album, No Love Is Sorrow, is a lovely release that came out as the pandemic took hold. Buck spoke to me from his home in Bergamo, Italy where he has weathered the pandemic and things are just now starting to reopen. In addition to his music and the madness of the past year we talked about his early influences, English Folk, and even some of our shared stomping grounds from many years ago. After the chat, there's a healthy dose of Grateful Dead waiting for you.


Buck Curran's music with Arborea is available via Arborea.Bandcamp.com. His solo work as well as things like the Jack Rose compilation and the Martin Simpson workshop recording can be found via his label, Obsolete Recordings, also on Bandcamp at ObsoleteRecordings.Bandcamp.com. Or you can go directly to Now Love Is Sorrow by following this link.
