Kitchen Dwellers on No Simple Road. Max Davies from Kitchen Dwellers is this week’s guest. This is a great bluegrass band from Montana. They have high-energy shows and a unique approach to traditional music that fans have dubbed “Galaxy Grass.” Max talks about recording in the middle of nowhere in a tiny cabin, the evolution of the Kitchen Dweller sound, what has influenced his journey in music, and a whole lot more.

Great First Sets of Phish on Helping Friendly Podcast. This week, we’re revisiting an episode from early 2018 when our friend Ben joined us to discuss the best first sets Phish has played. We talked about what makes a great first set, how the amazing moments in first sets have evolved over time, and finish by talking about the state of the band just after the monumental year of 2017 came to a close.

Guided by Voices on The Tapes Archive. In this episode, we hear from one of the most prolific songwriters of the past 30 years, Robert Pollard. At the time of this interview in 1995, he was 37 years old and was promoting an upcoming concert in Indianapolis. In the interview, Pollard talks about the collectability of his records and “hoarding” a few himself, the business side of making money in the music biz, who he thinks is a creep, and how he gives hope to all other garage musicians.
