The guests for this episode are Esther Quansah and Becky Foinchas of The Narcotix, a West African art-folk band based in Brooklyn. The two, both daughters of African immigrants, met in an elementary school chorus class in Woodbridge, Virginia, where their creative, musical, and personal sisterhood would start and lead all up to the release of their debut EP Mommy Issues. Soaking up their ancestral and cultural influences throughout their lives, The Narcotix have such a fresh spiritual sound that is both fun and soulful. During my chat with Esther and Becky, we talk about how they met and how they are such a close duo, both personally and musically. It was a fun conversation and they are definitely a band to watch out for in the future.

The guest for this episode is Detroit-based composer, pianist, and vocalist Vanessa Cuccia to talk about her debut album This is a Spell. I came across Vanessa’s music earlier this year when a mutual friend shared her single “Ode to Body” on Instagram. I really liked the song, but when I heard the full album and learned more about her, I definitely wanted to meet her and have her on the podcast. This is actually Vanessa’s first podcast interview about her music has she has already made successful waves in the world with her company Chakrubs, her natural crystal sex toy company (which has been featured on Conan, Playboy TV, Nylon, Teen Vogue, among other publications). Cuccia also runs Freque Magazine, described as “combining FREQUEncies of art, music, and culture through a lens of spirituality”. Between her music and the interviews I watched beforehand, I very much related to her experiences that would go into the creation of Chakrubs and into the heart of her music. During our conversation, we talked about her musical beginnings, how all of her projects lend in service of each other, the making of This is a Spell along with a track-by-track breakdown, and so much more. This is a Spell is one of my favorite albums of 2021 and Vanessa Cuccia is a wealth of positive energy and spirit.

For this episode, we are joined by a hip-hop legend, New York emcee O.C. of the crew Diggin’ in the Crates (DITC), but he’s humble enough to not accept that title just yet. O.C. originally jumped on the scene as a guest on Organized Konfusion’s “Fudge Pudge”, the soon after on the remix of MC Serch’s “Back to the Grill”. O.C. would go on to meet the likes of Lord Finesse and Buckwild from DITC, and Buckwild would produce most of his debut album Word…Life released in late 1994 on Wild Pitch Records that would spawn classic tracks like “Times Up” and “Born 2 Live”. In Summer of 1997, O.C. released his sophomore album Jewelz via Pay Day Records, but there was no sign of a slump here. Fueled by the DJ Premier-produced “My World” and the Buckwild-produced “Far From Yours”, O.C. had another classic in the books with Jewelz. O.C. would go on to release countless solo and collaborative albums throughout the years, still keeping his pen tight now at the age of 50.

For this episode, I’m joined by Skynd, lead singer and one half of the industrial-tinged, true crime-inspired electronic duo also known as SKYND. SKYND is the dark creative outlet for Skynd, along with producer and multi-instrumentalist Father. SKYND released Chapter I in 2018, followed by Chapter II in 2019. Now, with over 18 million hits on YouTube, “Michelle Carter” marks the second single in Chapter III, following 2020’s “Columbine.” SKYND is unique in the way of releasing their singles one at a time because so much detail goes into their creations, as Skynd does heavy research on each subject and then must condense it all into a song and a video along with her collaborator Father. All the information about the cases they research can be found on the band’s web site skynd-music.com, where you can find more information and links about all the subjects in the Case Files section. During my conversation with Skynd, we talked about how her upbringing lead her into an interest in true crime subjects, meeting Father, the process that goes into every song and video, and the creative outlet she feels doing this SKYND project, and much more.

For this episode, we are joined by Jeremy DePoyster, vocalist/guitarist of the metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada. They just released their latest project, the ZII EP, on May 21st, 2021 via Solid State Records. While their has been many releases from the band since their original Zombie EP released in August 2010, ZII is a bit of a continuation. Now veterans of metalcore, The Devil Wears Prada continue to progress showing there is no boundaries to this genre of music, always pushing the limits of both its sound and its visual accompaniment. With the ZII EP, DePoyster shares with us the creation of the this project, along with the differences between their full-length projects and their EPs, dealing with the growing pains of evolving as a band, how the pandemic has changed their creative process, revisiting their early albums, and much more!

For this episode, we are talking about the debut album from UK Alt-Metal band Vexed titled Culling Culture, released on May 21, 2021 via Napalm Records. Joining me for this episode is the band’s lead vocalist Megan Targett. After dropping a pair of brutal singles in 2019, “Elite” ft. CJ McMahon of Thy Art Is Murder and “Dominate”, the Hertfordshire foursome made enough noise to link up with Napalm Records for the release of their debut album. With Culling Culture, the band dives into topics of hate and anger that is so prevalent in today’s society as a way to show that people dealing with any sort of struggles in their lives are not alone and they can prevail. During our discussion, Megan shares with me how the band got started and the making of Culling Culture. We also go into the topics covered on Culling Culture, her experiences with sexual abuse, how discrimination is perceived in the UK, and even our favorite hip-hop and grime artists.

For this episode, we are talking about the new graphic anthology Dead Beats 2, released by A Wave Blue World, an independent publisher of high-quality graphic novels, anthologies, and art books, focusing on socially conscious storytelling and providing a platform for a multitude of creative voices. Joining me for this discussion is A Wave Blue World co-founders Wendy and Tyler Chin-Tanner, who started the company over 15 years ago. Dead Beats 2: London Calling, is a continuation after a successful campaign for the first volume which also received high acclaim for both its art direction and storytelling. For those unaware, Dead Beats is a full-color anthology of music-themed horror comics centered around the curiosities for sale at one peculiar record store managed by the enigmatic Shoppe Keeper. Think Tales From the Crypt, but in a record store. For London Calling, we travel to the new Dead Beats location across the pond in London. The original editors, Joe Corallo (Oh S#!t, It’s Kim & Kim, Lost On Planet Earth) and Eric Palicki (All We Ever Wanted, Maybe Someday), are back for more Dead Beats featuring over twenty new comics stories and more than forty creators. Lisa Sterle (Long Lost, Witchblood) returns to provide the cover with our interstitial narrative illustrations by Val Halvorson (Finger Guns, The Sequels). During our discussion, Wendy and Tyler share how the idea of Dead Beats got started, the process of putting together an anthology, how they picked creators for the stories, along with the founding of A Wave Blue World, running this publishing company for over 15 years, how Wendy’s training in sociology informs her work with A Wave Blue World, and their favorite types of music.

The guest for this episode is Rick Giordano, member of the synth-driven horror metal trio from St. Louis, The Lion’s Daughter. They have a new album out, Skin Show, via Season of Mist that dropped on April 9th, 2021. The thing that really pops out with Skin Show is the visuals, from the album cover artwork to the cinematography of the music videos. It really makes them stand out, almost intriguing to someone who has never heard them before. During our conversation, we talked about those visuals and how they complement the music, the making of Skin Show and how that differed from previous albums, how they got discovered, and 80s horror and action movies!

The guest for this episode is Butcher Bear, the Austin, TX-based owner of (iN)Sect Records, co-founder of Exploded Drawing, and drummer in the band Black Mercy. Always donning the full-on bear costume, I go way back with him from the days of my original Renaissance Soul website (I did a (iN)Sect podcast mix a while back called ‘The Demon Within’), and Butcher Bear has always been a huge supporter of Detroit music having released projects on (iN)Sect Records featuring Guilty Simpson, House Shoes, Self Says, Chanes, Dakim, and Nameless. As long as we have known each other, this was the first time we talked at any length, and it was great to finally catch up with Butcher Bear. During our conversation, we talked about his upbringing in Austin, which included a lot of hardcore shows, along with time being in bands and becoming a producer himself. We also get into the conception of (iN)Sect Records and his philosophy in how he releases projects and the creation of the Exploded Drawing events. Butcher Bear is simply just a music nerd and has such a passion for a wild array of genres, that he’s always been a blessing to know. We need more people like Butcher Bear in the arts world.
