The dark, coy, and literary band (but in a good way) Matchi is here in the studio to discuss their work and our shared musical arty exploits. Matchi are an art pop trio comprised of Shannon Ellis, (poet, singer, sampler), Josh Karg (guitar, drum programmer), and Isaac Starnes (bass guitar). We're familiars as friends and showmates at Springfest and you might've heard Shannon last week with Jake Easter talking about that event. We get band history and two songs recorded in-house specifically as sneak peaks to their upcoming EP. This is a chocked episode overflowing with sickly sweet symbolism and tuning of souls.
My art analysis portion of the show comes recommended by Kyle Weems. I talk for a length of time about the background, musicality, and bitingly effective purpose of At the Drive-In's song "Invalid Litter Dept." about the ongoing and unsolved femicide in factory shantytowns in Juarez, Mexico. A serious latter half to a beautiful show this week.
Thank you heartfully for your support. Kindly subscribe to us on iTunes if you like the show and give us a good review and rating, which really helps get the Earth Hotel more exposure.
A plus, until next time,
Jacquie Cotillard //
