Nearly four years in the making, Tyler and Dan finally get to talk. Tyler fronts The Tisburys, plays in Riverby, and writes for Philly music outlets like The Key and the Philadelphia Globe. Tyler and Dan talk about how The Tisburys came together, "purposeful songwriting", their forthcoming LP 'Sun Goes Down' and how it changed over the course of the pandemic, and the Manayunk music community.
Dan talks to Greg Seltzer, founder and organizer of the Philly Music Fest, now in it's 4th year. 2020 obviously dealt the fest some blows, but they've pivoted to offer a fully digital fest, and Greg talks about how that got put together, the slow-grow of the fest over the years, his ideas on how bands can operate better business-wise as live music reemerges, and he and Dan celebrate their favorite parts of the Philly music community.
Paul makes electronic music under man, many monikers, and they all live together as the Forest Kids Collective. Dan talks with Paul (who was originally on back in 2017 on #88) about a few of his newer releases, including a solo piano album and two slushwave EPs (Dan did not know what slushwave was, and needed guidance). The two discuss what they've been doing to occupy themselves, their various production approaches, and reminisce on those moments in college when someone drops some major knowledge on you.
Dan talks with Jay about his new 'Unwind' release, his band, The Barrel Fires, and being creative as a dad. The two discuss their love of the Grateful Dead, breaking out of the Americana rut, and how his wife's love of REM helps him deliver his best work.
Savan DePaul has been making beats and rapping since high school, but they've really come into their own over the last few years with a slew of out-there, challenging hip-hop and electronic records. Dan talks with Savan about growing up in Royersford, PA, moving to West Philly, the influence of artists like Bjork and Sun Ra, the black autism community, being non-binary, and using their newest project, Ishtar Sr., to continue to challenge themselves and make new kinds of music.
