Treats…

How’s it going, listeners? I’d definitely say this is the time of the year for treats; the more traditional edible kind, and the not so edible variety. This holds true for Blind Date, and what I bring to you in the weeks coming. Next  Wednesday, I give to you  the projectionist collective Spettra. The folks of Spettra keep the hands on tradition of liquid light shows and projections alive with their lo-fi approach. You’ve probably seen them out doing their thing, and not even know it. Spettra has done visuals for such local musicians such as Lady Pyramid, Black Birds of Paradise, and Twin Limb. Be sure to listen in to the humorous conversation I had with them, come Wednesday. And hopefully the Wednesday after, Christmas for those who celebrate it, I’ll have something a little special for you if all goes right. Things are hectic trying to balance projects, family gatherings, holiday parties, and interviews. You’ll just have to be patience and see..

Till then.

PS. Above is a video of Spettra providing some awesome visuals for Black Birds of Paradise at Haymarket.

You can definitely find more on their Facebook page.

Enjoying the winter, listeners? I know many of you like myself have been amongst some extreme winter storms; so please stay safe. Stay warm.

Today I bring you a recording of myself, hanging out in the practice space of the duo known as Twin Limb. We decided to do something a little different this time, on account of they haven’t had the chance to record any material. We set up a room mic and I let them play for me like it was my own personal concert (and yours now!), and I asked a few question between songs. Despite what I say in the beginning, I love NPR (don’t get me wrong!).

Twin Limb is a pretty new band, but judging from their rather polished haunting sound, you wouldn’t know it. The group consists of Lacey Guthrie and MaryLiz Guillemi, who before now have played in various groups and solo. Now as their newly found partnership, they’re taking the Louisville music scene by storm. If you’re lucky, you’ve already caught them at one of their many shows. If you have yet to see them, better jump on it while they’re out there playing gigs because soon they’ll be working on recorded material.

If you’re intrigued, you can find out more info at their website. Or at their Facebook page. Recently, these ladies were featured on the video blog ‘This Man Is Not My Father‘. Find the video clips, and more, at one of the many links listed.

Happy Holidays!
