Austin-based guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist Carl “Buffalo” Nichols wants to remind folks of the value of the blues as a cultural art form. “Listening to this record, I want more Black people to hear themselves in this music that is truly theirs.” The self-described music nerd considers Delta blues, Chicago blues, West African Malian guitar rhythms, and the African ancestry of the clawhammer banjo in his sonic experimentation and ongoing study of chords and riffs. Nichols, who lived in Milwaukee for most of his life save for his overseas travels, is Fat Possum Records' first blues signing in nearly 20 years and “is grateful to be part of the label's legacy of blues music that also includes Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside,” (Austin Monthly). For his remote performances, Buffalo Nichols wields both a hollow body Fender guitar and a resonator-style guitar, as he plays tunes from his self-titled record. - Caryn Havlik Set list: “These Things”, “How to Love,” “Lost and Lonesome” “These Things”: “How to Love”: “Lost and Lonesome”:

She is also The Greene Space Artist-In-Residence who hosted/curated El Living Room, a funhouse variety show involving plant and robot instruments, comedy, and mixed-media sets. Angélica takes us into her sensory world, and explains how her overlapping creative adventures feed into each other – say writing for the Dallas Symphony or for drag queens, or for the dreambow band, Balún. She offers a live performance - triggering sounds via plant art, programmed surface poppers, and hidden computers into a sonic dreamscape.

After another one week hiatus, Brooke and Katie attempt to make it up to you all with a very special double length episode on Jimin's birthday, no less! We of course address the elephant in the room, the trauma and triumph of securing BTS soundcheck tickets. We also discuss our Harry Styles concert(s) and the embarrassing behavior of some of his fans. We talk about the cringfest that is Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's Wattpad/sexually active band kid relationship, and Katie takes a walk down Repressed Memory Lane and reminisces on being asked to prom with a Merida music box at the Disney Store in the mall. We also discuss Katie's run in with drag queen Nina West and world famous Disney vlogger, Kyle Pallo on the 50th anniversary of WDW. For our NTBABBs we discuss relief coordinators who refer to their coworkers as “my cast,” and people who feel the need to tell people they're funny not being funny at all. We also talk about the Squid Game craze, and our decision to gatekeep k dramas and their actors, and the hold that the Titanic had on us as children.

Musical ghosts haunt the Memphis band Lucero. The late Warren Zevon is evoked in one song, and the spirit of the late Alex Chilton's groundbreaking Memphis group Big Star can be felt throughout the record. (Their 2015 album title, All A Man Should Do, is a line from a Big Star song.) Songwriter Ben Nichols uses a stirring blend of classic rock and Memphis soul, but maintains a distinctive voice. Lucero plays songs from All A Man Should Do, in-studio. (From the Archives, 2015.)

The Brooklyn-based band Wet first turned heads in 2013 with an EP packed with 90s-style synth-pop goodness. New Yorker magazine critic Sasha Frere Jones referred to their song “Don't Wanna Be Your Girl” as “completely perfect” and made it one of his songs of the year. In 2016, after a major label bidding war, they released their full-length debut, called Don't You. Wet (as a trio) joins us to play some of those songs, in-studio. (From the Archives, 2016.)

It's no small thing to command the attention of billions of people with nothing but the sound of your voice and an acoustic guitar. Ask British singer/songwriter Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, whose song "Let Her Go" became a legit worldwide phenomenon after its release in 2012. The song snowballed in slow motion, no instant smash, and wormed its way into ears and hearts one play at a time.

Pianist Vijay Iyer, bassist Linda May Han Oh, and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, wear their composer and collaborator hats simultaneously in new music by Vijay Iyer, who reminds us that “the most turbulent music may contain stillness, coolness, even wisdom,” (Uneasy liner notes.) They share the joy in hearing each other together in a room creating something collaboratively based on something put on the page. The members of the trio talk about optimism and hope - in spite of it all, their decades of shared connections, and some of their separate creative projects. Vijay also speaks to his perceived reputation for making art about subjects no one wants to talk about, and believing in the craft of making an album – the shape of it and the journey. Vijay and the trio play music from Vijay Iyer's 2021 record, Uneasy, for the first in-studio since early 2020, in The Greene Space. - Caryn Havlik Set list: “Combat Breathing,” “Children of Flint,” “Uneasy” Watch "Combat Breathing": Watch "Children of Flint": Watch "Uneasy":

In Hayden Pedigo's acoustic guitar playing one might hear the “loneliness and the space” of the Texas panhandle. The musician, composer, and former city-council candidate cites inspiration by guitarists from previous generations like Anthony Phillips (original Genesis guitarist), John Fahey, and Leo Kottke to sound very much like kickass fingerstyle guitarists of now, like Gwenifer Raymond and Toby Hay. Guitar nerds take note: Segovia is invoked, as are variations on multiple non-standard tunings, fingerpicks, and Leo Kottke's masterful banter stories. Hayden Pedigo's latest record, Letting Go, combines ambient electronics, English pastoralism, pedal steel, and fingerstyle guitar on both 6 and 12-strings for really melodic pieces in hard-to-replicate tunings. Pedigo plays remotely from Lubbock, TX. - Caryn Havlik Set List “Carthage,” “Some Kind of Shepherd” “Letting Go” Watch "Carthage": Watch "Some Kind of Shepherd": Watch "Letting Go":
