Hope you enjoy part TWO of our time at Tree Fort Music Fest 2021. There's a great post-rock-night vibe to this episode, featuring interviews with Blood Lemon, Sego, and Slurm Flirty Worm.

We wouldn't presume to speak for you. Music this week:"Around You" by Blackwater Holylight (2:54)"Burned" by Blood Lemon (23:01)"Down with Me" by Sego (43:57)"Week of Wednesdays" by Slurm Flirty Worm (64:37)"Adamant" by Mic Capes (68:28) 
Haute Garbage is back with the first in a series of live interviews from Tree Fort Music Fest 2021 in Boise, Idaho. Did Boise do its best to market its world-famous potatoes? It did not, but what it lacked in starch it made up for in killer music (Luckily. 'Cause seriously, not a single potato pun or spud-related mascot). In the first of the series, we sit down with Seattle's Smokey Brights, Chicago's Waltzer, and Boise's Power House. Enjoy with a friend or as part of a first date!Music this episode:"Burn It Down" by The French Tips (3:06)"Save Us Sarah" by Smokey Brights (23:59)"Eugene" by Waltzer (47:13)"Haymaker" by Power House (62:53)"The Way I Feel" by Alien Boy (68:52)

Our guest this week is the great emcee Vinnie Dewayne.

Our guest this week is the great Swiggle Mandela. Swiggle is one of the more thoughtful, intentional creators in NW hip-hop, and we sat down to discuss his approach to his career and song-creation, the benchmarks that translate to success, and what it means to be a person of color in Portland at this particular moment. We also play some killer tunes. Swiggle is prolific and active across all social music platforms, and he makes the point that a "like" or a "share" can have a greater impact than anyone thinks. You never know who's on the other end of a share, so be sure to follow him and engage!Music this week:"We Live Here" by Bob Vylan (8:01)"Lit Tonight" by Swiggle Mandela ft.

Melynda, Donna, and Erin from the proudly adult-contemporary Jamais Jamais join us for a welcome dose of music and silliness. We talk about their in-progress album, the ease and joy of working together, and how rapidly Melynda got to the "sorting a bucket of screws" phase of social distancing.

Welcome to the soundtrack for another week of social distancing! We know it's getting tough out there, so as you continue to haunt your own home, pop in some ear buds and discover something beautiful you've never heard before.

This week, we take our first foray into remote recording. We stretch our legs luxuriously into the malaise of isolation and uncertainty with a notable dearth of stories due to the cow-like dullness of our day-to-day lives.

We're thinking of you, and we hope you're all getting by as well as possible!Quick programming note: Drew is a fine host, but the slowest editor in the world, so please excuse our delay here.
