Eli Winter


Greetings Dead Freaks!

Eli Winter returns! Previously appearing in a short chat for ep 47, he's back for a full length interview and an amazing new self-titled album. Although it's just his name on the front of the record, this album finds Winter collaborating with a fabulous array of artists including Cameron Knowler, Yasmin Williams, David Grubbs, Ryley Walker, Tyler Damon, and the late jaimie branch.  I've included a track from the album and it's followed by a lengthy blast of Grateful Dead from Chicago's Kinetic Playground.


Winter's latest album is entitled, "Eli Winter" and has been released by the amazing Three Lobed Recordings. You can find it, along with an astounding collection of other music at https://threelobed.bandcamp.com.

Also mentioned on this episode are these very fine releases: 

One Eleven Heavy - Poolside (bandcamp)

Elkhorn - Distances (Feeding Tube Records)

rootless - What The Truth Leaves Out (Feeding Tube Records)

ragenap

 

Greetings, Dead Freaks!

We're back with a great conversation with guitarist and deep improv musiv head, Joel Berk. Berk releases deep guitar-based zones under the name ragenap. We talk about his work and its origins before diving into a bit of a discussion about Chicago's improv music scene and, of course Grateful Dead. in and around the interview, we sample some ragenap and one of his more recent releases leads of a deep mix of Dead jams and songs.


You can find Berk's music at the easy to recall link, ragenap.bandcamp.com. I strongly recommend the albums, Thankruptcy, No Ear To Hear (a split with Prana Crafter), and the most recent: Thriving Culture. You'll also find a wide array of "covers" tracks inspired by various songs, many of which may be familiar. I haven't found one that I didn't like but I will recommend a couple favorites: "shenandoah", "piper (intro)", and "days between".

The Brokedown Podcast is also part of Osiris Media. Osiris is creating a community that connects people like you with podcasts and live experiences about artists and topics you love. As I mentioned, I will be co-hosting an evening of conversation and music with Taper's Choice on Wednesday, August 31, in Denver, CO at the Larimer Lounge.

William Tyler

 

Greetings Dead Freaks!

I am very pleased to have guitarist William Tyler on the show. We sat down and spoke a few weeks ago about som many things including, starting out in Nashville, his earliest band, joining Lambchop & The Silver Jews, his first solo ventures and some of his latest work. Naturally, we bring it around to Grateful Dead. After the chat, you'll hear a track from the latest release, "Lost Futures", a collaboration with Marisa Anderson. All that is followed by an excellent selection of Grateful Dead.


Marisa Anderson & William Tyler's "Lost Futures" is available, along with most of Tyler's releases, on his Bandcamp page, williamtyler.bandcamp.com, and wherever records are sold. I have all of these records and I sincerely believe that you should too.

The new LP release of PG Six & Louis Bock's "All Summer Long Is Gone" is available now from Feeding Tube Records via feedingtuberecords.com.

Lastly, my own new album, "Slips, Trips, & Falls" out now and available on most digital outlets that don't end in "tify". You can also buy it digitally or grip a physical copy from my bandcamp page, jmhart.bandcamp.com. Thanks.
