Brian Walker plays under the name A Day Without Love, and talks with Dan about what it is to be one of the only young black men playing indie rock in a white-dominated DIY scene. It gets heavy, it gets real, and the two explore what the impact of race is in a seemingly all-inclusive art form. A Day Without Loveâ€™s newest LP, â€œSolaceâ€, is out now on Sounds And Tones Records.
Dan brings another former band member on the show to catch up. Nicklas Hughes and Dan toured and played together for many years, and now Nick has a new solo album, 'Games', out very soon. They cover Nickâ€™s growing up (which Dan kinda knew about), his songwriting and recording process for his new record (which Dan didnâ€™t know about), and just sorta catch up on life things, as two old friends do. Fun fact: Nick is the first performer to have reverb applied to his voice. It weirds Dan out a bit.
