Heading on down to SX, gonna see if I can unwind…

So it looks like I’ll be spending quite a bit of time in Downtown Austin for SXSW.  I will be working a lot, as well as spreading information about the podcast. Hit me on Twitter and let me know if you are in town for SXSW.

Ready for SXSW?

I’m getting ready for SXSW this year, and for me, it starts on the 8th.  In past years,  I’ve been ready to pull out what little hair I have left, but for 2015, I’m ready to go.  

I’ve lived in the Austin area since 1993, and this town turns into a madhouse, but this year I want that craziness.   I’m booked for work for all of SXSW this time, after missing last year due to foot surgery. 

 Come find me or my business cards during the madness …

Coming back from a long hiatus…

Hello.  Been a while.

Sometimes life gets in the way of things you love to do, and in the case of the podcast, something had to give.  I’ve spent the last couple years running like crazy; working three jobs, going to school full-time, and trying to write, record, edit, market, and build the podcast.

In hindsight, trying to do the podcast on a weekly basis was pretty insane, especially given all the other responsibilities I had when this started.  I thought about changing the format of the show, or using new and unknown bands, but that is not what the concept of the podcast was intended to do.

But enough of that.  It’s time to get things going again, and I am once again looking for music for the show.

If you were in a band, or were a fan of a band that no longer puts out music or plays shows, please get in contact with me.

Time for me to get back to work.

Episode 9 – Bronze Fawn

Death in Amber – Episode 9

The Twilight of an Epoch

This week’s show is the second appearance for the bass player from this band.  When Kelvin (episode 5) broke up, most of the members migrated to the west coast.  The bass player, my friend Steve, moved to Seattle.  There he met a group of like-minded individuals and formed Bronze Fawn, an effects-heavy journey into psychedelia and musical landscapes.

With influences like MONO (check out this Japanese band) and Mogwai, Bronze Fawn wrote epic-length songs mixing electronic elements, cinematic rock, and shoe-gazing riffs to great effect.

While the selections for this show are only culled from their debut, “Lumber”, they also released a second album, entitled “Life Among Giants.”

Treat yourself to a nice half-hour, and close your eyes and journey into a lush sonic landscape of electronic effects mixed with droning guitars and tight fills.

The band called it quits November 18, 2010.
