5 Questions With… Breathe Owl Breathe

February 17th, 2012

I caught up with Micah, Andrea and Trevor from Ann Arbor, Michigan’s Breathe Owl Breathe before their set at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill. Their live show is upbeat and whimsical. In fact, I’d venture as far as to say I’d never seen a band appear to have so much fun on stage (The […]

5 Questions With… Molly Hamilton of Widowspeak

August 2nd, 2011

(pic by dale w. eisinger) I’ve been fawning over the soothing, lavender-infused croon of Brooklyn-based Widowspeak‘s front-woman Molly Hamilton since the first time I stumbled upon the band’s “Gun Shy” and “Harsh Realm” singles.  And whether it is their simmering and sweet interpretation of Chris Issac’s “Wicked Game” or the psychedelic twists of their newly […]

June 22nd, 2011

We’re continuing the ’5 Questions With’ series and today we’re talking with Mike Krieger, the co-founder of the photo-sharing app Instagram.  Mike is a fan of great independent music and definitely in-the-know when it comes to up and coming artists – which seems fitting since most of those same artists are constantly posting pictures taken […]

Interview: Hayley of Super Wild Horses

June 8th, 2011

When we first started doing our Musical Pairings the connection between food and music seemed obvious enough to us.  After all, in my opinion, there is a lot of rock n’ roll packed into most of my favorite foods.  In food, as in music, an individual’s style is deeply part of what they produce.  Some […]

Interview: Chris Chu of The Morning Benders

May 18th, 2011

Listening to a record by The Morning Benders is kinda like sitting down at the dinner table to enjoy a good home-cooked meal.  Their latest record, Big Echo, for example, is warming, comforting, engaging and completely satisfying – thereby stirring the same emotions brought on by a good meal. So it is no surprise that […]

Interview: Thao & Mirah

May 10th, 2011

It’s been pretty well documented that Kasey and I are pretty big fans of both Thao and Mirah. Their albums get a lot of play when we are at work in our kitchen and during our home-cooked meals.  So, as you might imagine, we were very excited when they agreed to sit down with us […]

Turntable Kitchen’s Top ‘Side One, Track Ones’ Released Since 2000

May 4th, 2011

A first impression is a lasting impression.  At least that is the conventional wisdom.  And I’d argue that whatever wisdom lay in that theory with regard to social interactions applies equally to a listener’s interaction with music.  If you have a negative reaction (i.e. boredom, indifference, or outright dislike) to the first song you hear […]

City Limits Records

March 18th, 2011

I’m pretty proud of the music scene in my adopted home by the Bay.  Indeed, San Francisco has consistently maintained a seemingly endless pool of talented young musicians making some of the best, forward-thinking music of their time; we have great studios where bands can record their masterpieces; we have great venues for watching bands […]

Wired Fat Tuesday Podcast / Generationals – Actor-Caster

March 8th, 2011

Happy Fat Tuesday!  Yup, in case you live somewhere that doesn’t really celebrate Carnival season, be aware, it is Mardi Gras time! To be honest, it would be easy to miss the holiday in San Francisco where folks seem more interested in prepping for St. Patrick’s Day than feasting on fatty foods and drink.  Nonetheless, […]
