Having gained several new members since their last apperance on Kaleidoscope, Starving in the Belly of the Whale returns to the WYSO studios to perform some new songs. A fluid lineup of players joins frontman Ricky Terrell onstage and on the new album the band just finished recording. The album is set to be released later this summer and will be free as are the band's previous releases. Here the band discusses plans for the rest of the year and how their writing and recording process has evolved to accommodate a rotating lineup.
Host Tom Duffee talks with local bluegrass band the Corndaddies about the formation of their band, the fun of being street performers, and the importance of live music. The band sings about steel drivin' with their rendition of "John Henry" and answers the burning question, "What occupation will never lose their job to a machine?" Listen to find out!
The Redtone Sixes have been doing some traveling since their last visit to the WYSO studios. The group has been doing some regional touring since the release of their album, Pleasure Box. At the same time, they've been hard at work recording a follow-up album.
The Redtone Sixes returned to Kaleidoscope for a live set and to talk about what's next for them as far as touring and recording.
Much like this previous release, Lo-fi Movement, Kris N's new album was recorded at home. Prior to recording the songs that would become Heartscarf, he recorded two other albums worth of material but decided that the current songs were the right ones to release.
Kris N returned to the WYSO studios to perform tracks from Heartscarf live and spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about recording in the moment and the idea of the heart scarf, which was conceptualized with visual artist Cherry Fullam. Heartscarf will be released on June 24th via Poptek Records.
Since their performance with Kelley Deal during Record Store Day, the Buffalo Killers have been busy putting the final touches on their new album, 3. After the record is released locally in July, the band will embark on a West Coast tour. Zach Gabbard, Andy Gabbard and Joseph Sebaali braved spring tornados in Southern Ohio to visit the WYSO studios and perform several live tracks as well as preview a song from 3.
The Buffalo Killers will perform at Peach's Grill in Yellow Springs on Friday, May 27th.
