Episode 20 - Matchi and Analysis: "Invalid Litter Dept."

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 //

Episode 16 - Neeta Burger (Boringham)

Myself is joined by Neeta-Burger-self and Kevin-Peek-self in Neeta's apartment to talk a LOT about music, the local scene, emotional selves, and the ticking clock of life. Neeta shares her time and talent between her original act, Sister Sniffle, now a band, Spores, a local "magical" act, and a solo acoustic act showcased here, BORINGHAM. Kevin plays with a local rock group by the name of Hurl Yeah. Included in this show is a song cut from segments of sound provided by my previous guest, Will Mcdonald, and his circuit-bent Casio SK-5. 

You can listen to that Episode here, time stamp 00.10.24 for the circuit-bending demo from which all non-vocal sounds in the song originate.

Episode 8 - Omari Jazz

Oct 1 (X 1/71)

Great Mott, here it is.
After a weekend of busy-ness and false-tarts, I'm here with a program that'll do stuff to your socks. A few months ago as I was living in Birmingham, I interviewed a talented fella who makes the electronic sounds for your moving and shaking about. That fella was Omari, and he and his jazzing is what is the word today. We check on that bit of archive as we explore this par-culiar uni-place.
