STACK SESSIONS - THEODORE

Last night Justin Kinkel-Schuster - lead-singer and songwriter for local band Theodore - stopped in, played some songs and talked some talk. We discussed his band's recent label-signing, his recent RFT awards for "best male vocalist" and "best country (alternative)," George Hamilton IV's "Abilene", "high-voiced New Folk heroes," rock operas, and probably some other things. I'll be broadcasting the interview live on the airwaves (@90.3 fm/kwur.com) at 7 or 8pm (central time, natch), but if you wanna check out the songs right now, give a listen below. Perhaps most importantly, Theodore will be performing tonight at Off Broadway with Samantha Crain and it promises to be a blockbuster humdinger bonanza mindblower so, you know, keep that in mind. Hopefully we'll get the full band in the studio some time soon.

STACK SESSIONS: EXERCISE

Local experimentalists Exercise recently stopped by the station to drop off some tracks from their new album, "Grandma's House." They actually played five songs, but everything was sequenced together so beautifully that we decided to keep them intact as two separate tracks (with the interview in between). Check out pictures from the in-studio and the intricately spaced-out tunes below.

STACK SESSIONS: BENYARO

Ben and Bobby of the NYC outfit Benyaro hung out at the station last Wednesday, played some tunes and shot the shit about their new album, making music in New York City, and why I wasn't wearing pants during the interview (I think I was, but Bobby might disagree). The interview was excellent, and they also played a few rad new songs, which you can grab below!
