Tanya Maus, from Wilmington College's Peace Resource Center and Kiku Hibino, a musician from Chicago visisted the WYSO studios ahead of Hibino's performance in Yellow Springs. Both had just come from a 12 hour vigil the previous day at Wilmington College remembering the atomic bombing at Hiroshima. Kiku plays and sings some of his yet-to-be-recorded music, much inspired by the atomic bombing 70 years ago.

For the follow up to their 2014 release, To No End went with a double album to highlight the different, contrasting aspects of their music.  Remora's first disc shows off the band's familiar, harder rock sound while the second disc presents more a acoustic, intimate version.  The band visited the WYSO studios to share live and recorded songs from the new album and talked with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about the process of putting it together.

To No End will celebrate the release of Remora on Saturday, August 8th at Middletown's Old Crow Bar.
