Russian Circles – interview & live video

Today I share a most overdue post – the second and final episode of the RockitBomb.TV pilot project. I am happy to post an interview and set opener from Russian Circles, an amazing band that I have had the fortune to see multiple times, as well as the honor of sharing a bill with them via Thin Fevers.

Check out Andy and Annie’s interview, and the band’s set opener from the April 23rd, 2009 show at Radio Radio .

For anyone who missed my previous post – this project was a collaboration that I embarked on last summer with A2 Industries. Unfortunately, due to my career change, and A2 busy bringing awesome to Indianapolis, the project has been indefinitely shelved.

Thanks to the guys in Russian Circles and A2 for being awesome to work with!

Tim Barry Interview and 2 Live Songs – RockitBomb.TV Pilot

Earlier in 2009, my friends Annie and Andy from A2 Industries had the great idea to start work on a video podcast. We decided to call it RockitBomb.TV, as I was tiring of playing around with audio podcasting, and had always wanted to collaborate on a video project.

We shot three pilot episodes, the first of which was an interview with Tim Barry, formerly of Avail. We got to sit down with Tim for an interview, the folks at NationalUnderground.org were kind enough to lend us some archival footage, and we got footage of Tim performing two great songs at Local’s Only in Indianapolis.

Special thanks to Those Young Lions, NationalUnderground.org, and A2 for working with me on this project, the “as final as it is going to get” cut is below for your viewing pleasure:

The Beasts of Eden Interview


This week we have Chris V. on the show from New York’s Beasts of Eden, an awesome rock quartet that brings to mind No Knife*, The Beatles, and general awesomeness. On the show we have three tracks from their 2007 EP and some great conversation about influences and their trip last year to Cabo with a bunch of playboy bunnies.

Keep an eye out for a new record from them this year, and thanks to Kellie for the introduction.

*I seem to be developing a habit of comparing bands to No Knife on the show.

Azeda Booth Interview with Marc Rimmer


Azeda Booth was kind enough to call into the show from Austin last week before they hit South by Southwest. Azeda Booth just released an EP called “TubTrek” that you can download for free, and will be working a new record and touring all summer.

The interview was a little choppy, as Marc was calling from a pay phone, but I think I was able to adjust enough so he can be understood.

From the band’s website:

“There are no women in Azeda Booth. If you’re reading this before you’ve played their debut album In Flesh Tones, you’re probably puzzled. Press play and come back. The band shares the same sublime androgynously-voiced space as Antony and the Johnstons, jazz great Little Jimmy Scott and Philly-soul angels the Stylistics. Musically, there are only sightlines, no touchstones. They twist and flutter, too skittish for space rock, too hot for IDM, too concise and charming for glitch-core. The Calgary, Alberta five-piece conjure up the sound of human travel. The arrivals and departures are hazy and blurred, the tone both tense and delicate, the fuel potent and clean, the direction most definitely UP. In Flesh Tones, Azeda Booth’s debut full length is a benchmark album, a thing of dazzling beauty and fragile inspiration. It’s not so much a bomb in the mineshaft as it is an incandescent dove illuminating the way out.” Read more

Azeda Booth “Ran” from “In Flesh Tones.”


Also, check out the video that is mentioned in the interview, this song is absolutely great.
