TMT 170: Caleb Wheeler Curtis

9/22/2018
More
Jazz saxophonist Caleb Wheeler Curtis’ debut recording as a bandleader, Brothers, is the dynamic sum of a career built for this moment. Performances at historic venues such as the Blue Note and Jazz Standard and a CV that boasts the Ann Arbor-native’s numerous sessions and recordings with peers like Orrin Evans (who produced Brothers) and Jason Moran (who plays on another CWC 2018 release, Freebird, by Walking Distance, a Brooklyn-based collective). This episode includes “Brothers” and “The...

TMT 169: Wsabi Fox (Jennae Santos)

9/17/2018
More
Brooklyn-based Jennae Santos is a self-professed performance artist, but the music of Wsabi Fox, her solo project, is visceral enough to stand on its own merits. Sure, you won’t experience the way Jennae commands a stage, but songs this sturdy don’t need smoke and mirrors to feel the viscerality. Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) & KK Barrett recognized this power when they recruited the Bay Area-native for their Stop the Virgens psycho opera. This episode features the Eternal Garb remix of Wsabi...

TMT 168: Stephon Alexander

9/8/2018
More
There was a time when Stephon Alexander didn’t believe he could co-exist in the seemingly disparate worlds of music and science. As evidenced in his bestselling book, The Jazz of Physics, the Trinidad-native discovered the union between both fields and also made peace within himself. Theoretical physicist. Cosmologist. Jazz saxophonist. Stephon has also served as the science advisor on Ava Duvernay’s A Wrinkle in Time film adaptation (of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 book) featuring Oprah Winfrey....

Josh Madell has mastered the art of transitioning from one cool project to the next. As the co- founder of NYC’s beloved record shop, Other Music, which ended a nearly two-decade run in 2016, he quickly started the Come Together Label Fair & Music Festival at MoMA PS1. Both endeavors share Josh’s passion for sharing the best music—you may or may not have heard of —to other music fanatics. For more information on Other Music and Come Together,...

TMT 166: Rue Snider

7/23/2018
More
Indie singer-songwriter Rue Snider’s music is a feat of grit and perseverance. And while those are admirable traits, they might all be for nothing if they weren't backed up with a sheer talent for strong hooks. The Brooklyn-based musician’s third full-length album, City Living, is the evidence with its inspiration rooted in a New York story of struggles and a love for 80s rock.

TMT 164: REWIND: Carlos Dengler Interview

6/18/2018
More
This episode is a repeat of my 100th show from October 2016 featuring my most-downloaded interview with Carlos Dengler. In another lifetime, Carlos D was the slick-haired, style- conscious, all-black wearing bassist of the band Interpol. Since leaving the "post-punk revivalists" group in 2010, he's returned to the public consciousness as theater actor Carlos Dengler. Carlos has never spoken publicly about his departure from Interpol, but in this exclusive TMT conversation he shares why he...

Will Moloney is such a prolific songwriter (singer and multi-instrumentalist) that in the natural world there actually exists an 80-song tribute album dedicated solely to his band Old Table. Old Table is just one of the numerous projects he fronts. There’s also Climax Landers, Turbo Sleaze and whatever else he’s plotting to extend his brilliant lo-fi discography.

The way you feel after hearing a Joanna Teters song can be a bit overwhelming. The emotions. The lyrics. And of course, that soulful voice! She isn't merely singing the words she writes; she's interpreting her side of the story through each and every note and syllable. Her new release, Warmer When It Rains, provides eight indelible reasons to be blown away by her artistry.

Regardless of the moniker (i.e. Nutshell) that brings you to the music of Dan Kleederman, his talent is the constant. The Brooklyn singer/songwriter and educator is currently in the studio working on his debut album...whose project name is also a work-in-progress.

TMT 160: Taylor Simone (Jazze Belle)

12/30/2017
More
The divide of technique between a performer's recorded work and their live performances can be cavernous. That's not an issue for singer/songwriter Taylor Simone. As co-founder of the adventurous soul group Jazze Belle (with Justin Carter), the LA-native delivers wherever she picks up the mic. If you're enthralled by Taylor's vocals on the New York group's EP, Go To Bed Standing Up, experiencing her on a stage will both meet and surpass any expectations.

Swedish jazz vocalist (and visual artist) Sophie Dunér’s experimental approach to the genre is an adventure. On her most recent album, The City of Dizzy with cellist Jeremy Harman, she carves an endless maze of surprises to discover. No song ever sounds the same twice.

TMT 158: Matt Meade

12/19/2017

Brooklyn singer-songwriter Matt Meade's jazz background only spells part of the story of his musical career. The Texan-transplant's talent is broad enough to span the indie-chamber of his prior band Friend Roulette to the mongrel sounds of his new Spritzer solo project. With Spritzer, Matt sings lead vocals instead of handing the duty over to Julia Tepper, but his ingenious songwriting remains the common denominator.

TMT 155: Jenn Pelly

Grandly heralded bands with more praise than sales under their belt could do no worse than to have their work documented by music journalists like Jenn Pelly. With her beautifully-crafted debut book on The Raincoats' self-titled 1979 post-punk classic, Jenn guides us through both a history of the all-female band and the influential album's place in music history.

A new Grooms album ever two years is the perfect clockwork for indie rock devotees. As the lead vocalist and guitarist, Travis Johnson heads up the Brooklyn-based band whose debut came out in 2009 when they were a part of the now-defunct Death by Audio DIY scene in Williamsburg.
