PLUS, we also play music from Sam Wells, Kianna White, and Trampled Under Foot.
At 10:30 we welcome indie veterans Kianna Alarid White of the bands Tilly & the Wall, and Yes You Are, and Cale Parks of the bands Yeasayer, and Aloha. We will talk with Kianna & Cale about their new duo Ezmerelda and their debut single, “I’m So Nervous.” The duo formed in the final months of 2021, drawing on influences like: Fever Ray, Budgie-era Siouxsie and the Banshees, and early M.I.A. Combining elements of their high intensity live shows with art-rock improvisation, Kianna and Cale took to the basement to self produce their brand of industrial, drum heavy electro-pop in October 2021. The result was a collection of immediately realized dance tracks that will make up the duo’s debut EP.
At 11:11 we talk with our friend Michelle Bacon of the bands: Other Americans & Frogpond. Michelle joins us to talk about, The Band That Fell To Earth, and their 6th Annual Tribute to David Bowie. The two night event happens on Friday, January 21 with guest artists Sam Wells and Dee Radke of Radkey, and Saturday, January 22, with guest artists: Kat King, and Jocelyn Olivia Nixon, of The Creepy Jingles. Both nights will have different playlists. Both nights will be at at recordBar. Proof of vaccination or negative test within 72 hours is REQUIRED for entry. recordBar is taking every health and safety precaution possible, including that the entire band and production crew will be tested prior to the show.
