Ben Anderson stopped by the Radio Phoenix studios to chat with the gang and play some great tracks on this edition of The YabYum Hour. We find out that sometimes it does take a few listens of something before you can truly love it. We also learn about Mr. Anderson’s transition from solo artist to forming multiple projects. Take a listen and hear some great selections by Ben and, as always, the complete playlist can be found below…Read More →

2000 Foot Turtle 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

On Friday, April 12, I pushed my body closer to its limits as I decided to cover two shows in a row. With just 24-hours preceding my review of Sunday At Noon with Almost Awake, Arlington, and HeadStrum, I realized this was a show I would have to compromise my mental health for. Not only was 2000 Foot Turtle scheduled, a personal favorite of mine, but the mysterious Spectrum Hues I hadn’t seen since my early days in photography last year dictated the final decision of my attendance.

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

Although I had the pleasure of meeting Matt Oliviero and Michael Oden from The Smiling Faces and, more recently, of Vintage Clothes, I didn’t get the chance to listen to their August-released LP, Don’t Ever Talk to Me Again, until recently when frontman and guitarist Eric Gallagher brought it to my physical Facebook-attention. The album, which makes me feel like Dave Grohl in “Walk” both musically and lyrically, contains vocal chaos among smart, instrumental qualities Frasier Crane could enjoy…Read More →
