Episode 48 - Top Shelf Burlesque

The marvelous ladies behind Birmingham's own Top Shelf Burlesque share some time with the Earth Hotel to talk about the art of stage seduction and why Birmingham might have such an interest in the erotic arts. See them Sept 21 at Brennan's Irish Pub and in future spots throughout the Southeast. Follow their Instagram accounts to be kept in anticipation.

Episode 45 - Joel Switzer

All avoidances will be attended to and repaid unto the souls of those responsible. Namely, mine. Welcome back to part two of our much-maligned Season Three. 
I was joined righteously in conversation by Joel Nobody, or the man who calls himself such, as I skulked away to a beach setting of tourist entropy. 
Joel maintains the churning machine that is Fork and Spoon Recordings of Panama City, Florida, at the heart of the southeast's experimental scene. Shortly after we were joined at Efficiency Fest on May 5 whilst welcoming improvisers from throughout the state, Joel and I broke the thing down. We have much in common and I look forward to hearing more of the sound from his world on the show as we go forward.

Episode 33 - Loi Loi (from Washington D.C.)

The voice has come back and it tells us that there's a new episode of the Earth Hotel. You know that now, however unlikely it was you made it here without knowing that. The voice does not lie. This week we welcome the duo Loi Loi to the city of Birmingham, the Red Mountain's own melting valley, and they found it to their liking. The electronic pair made a stellar impression on the folks of the Syndicate Lounge, and we sat about within the Soft Rock Bungalow for an interview about their debut EP Viva la Vulva, which you can preview here and truly hear below.
