Dan interrupts Matt Taglang's New England vacation to talk about Athensville, their new record, 'Undressing Minds for Show', and the loaded term 'Dad band'. Matt talks about his days in his Penn State bar band, traveling the world as a teacher, meeting the Athensville guys later in life, and helps put to bed the old notion that you get more conservative as you get older. 'Undressing Minds for Show' is out now and available wherever you get digital music.
Dan takes the advice of a past guest (Susan Werner) and talks with slide guitar master Mike Brenner. Dan and Mike talk about his 90s band, The Low Road, Mike's countless credits (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Company, Marah, Wild Pink, John Train, etc.), his anticipation of upcoming shows, and his time in India where he studied the chaturangui (an Indian slide guitar). Mike is out on tour with Wild Pink this fall in support of their new record, 'A Billion Little Lights'.
