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.
Captain of Industry spent the past two years on hiatus due to family obligations and one member relocating from Dayton to Portland, Oregon. The band is playing 3 reunion shows, and stopped by the WYSO studios perform live and chat with Excursions host Niki Dakota ahead of their performance Friday night (May 13th) at Gilly's in downtown Dayton with The Receiver, Roley Yuma, and Pretty & Nice.
Nathan Peters returns to the WYSO studios for an update on his latest musical endeavors. He talks about piecing together songs both for solo projects and with a band and the difference between playing an intimate solo show and playing with a rock band.
Peters' band, Captain of Industry, will be playing a series of reunion shows with Boston's Pretty & Nice, The Receiver and Roley Yuma later this month.
