Twin Limb playing at Haymarket.

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!

Hello again listeners.

The weather’s been odd lately in Louisville, but it hasn’t stopped me from running around, chatting up artists. Over the weekend I caught up with an old friend of mine, Neil Mulac. We discussed acting, Carl Jung, Indigo children, and creative obstacles. Neil is an actor of both film and theatre, who also writes scripts, screenplays, and poetry. Above is a sample of some of his film work titled ‘Mae Waits’ ( a film inspired by the ‘Mumblecore’ movement ). Currently, he is in the midst of collaborating on a short film along with planning some plays for the near future.

Enjoy.

It’s the middle of the week once again listeners. The weekend is almost here. It definitely should be a pretty interesting one in Louisville, due to the Open Studio Weekend hosted by LVAA. To learn more about this first time event, visit louisvillevisualart.org. Speaking of first time events, only a few more days till Glances: an evening of short films and performances. If you haven’t heard yet, click here for more info.

Without further delay, today’s episode. Today’s post is a discussion I had with the gallery director of Open, Mark James. Open is a relatively new space to the Louisville Metro. Besides housing four resident artists, the gallery also offers weekly events, workshops, and open mic nights. Mark and I discuss the beginnings of the gallery, his views on art and artists, and how creative expression is impacted by society & vice versa.
