Thursday, September 24th, 2020 by The Professor

Lockemy – WLOY Interview 480p As part of the 2020 Charm City Sampler interviews the Professor sat down remotely with local indie rock musician Lockemy. He hung out on the orange couch at Deep End Studios in Middle River, MD and chatted about the sampler, live music and the creative process in quarantine. He also dropped the casual mention that he helped to build the very orange studio in which he sat, as though everyone just does that. Lockemy was also the host of our very first Quarantine Takeover episode back in May (which you really should click here to catch if you missed it).

Quarantine Takeover – High on Stress

Monday, September 14th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover show comes from the great music city of Minneapolis and the band High on Stress! High on Stress formed in Minneapolis in the summer of 2003 and have released five studio albums. Their latest album, “Hold Me In”, was released in 2020 in the middle of a hundred year pandemic because they like to do things the hard way. “Hold Me In” was inspired by friends, Slim Dunlap & Tommy Keene and the great bands of Twin Tone Records. The twelve song collection showcases singer/songwriter Nick Leet’s continuing growth as a writer of clever, melodic pop songs. At the same time, this is certainly a rock record, forged in the crucible of sweaty live shows, hazardous driving conditions and lodging in the bad part of the bad part of town. While “Hold Me In” reflects the sharper edge of the band as a live act, the songwriting retains the charm and poignancy that marked its predecessors. (more…)

Quarantine Takeover – Franklin Gotham edition

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover features the members of Viginia’s Franklin Gotham. It’s a bit of a wild ride, and we hope you can get a firm grip and hang on. They reach back to their pre-FG bands and history, throw in some road stories, a teeny bit of innuendo, and some great music. Did you know their members had played in Icewagon Flu (find them on Myspace) and Virginia Coalition (who played at Loyola in 2008)?

Franklin Gotham brings upbeat-melancholia pop back on the indie scene. Described as Wilco meets the Squeeze, listeners will also hear hints of Old 97s, REM and Death Cab for Cutie. They deliver honest & heartfelt compositions entwined with warm rhythms and almost southern-rock vocals. Introspective and reflective lyrics paired with acoustic guitar paint rich visuals for listeners. Simply explained: Catchy acoustic pop with heart-felt, booze-soaked lyrics. Franklin Gotham is the creative pairing of Kevin Adkins (Icewagon Flu) and Jarrett Nicolay (Virginia Coalition, Astra Via) and Christopher Speich (Nashville Sessions). The team offers both modern and rustic sounds through acoustic guitar rhythms, thoughtful lyrics and modern percussion.

They had a website too but… we’ll let them explain in the show.

Quarantine Takeover – Bobby & Doc Pine Return!

Sunday, August 30th, 2020 by The Professor

This week marks not only the return of Doc Pine & Bobby to the Quarantine Takeover show but the world premiere of 12yr old Bobby’s soon to be classic “The Bro Down”. Could it be the feelgood hit of the summer with young Calvin (probably not with Hobbes or Susie)? Doc Pine continues in his efforts to school Bobby on classic tunes and new Americana releases, possibly slipping in some of his own (many) bands’ works.

Doc Pine combines creepy old Appalachian music, off kilter honky-tonk, murder ballads, yodeling, heavy rock jingles, and junkyard blues stomps in the hope of one day getting invited to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. He claims his songs “have been filtered through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal, which imparts a distinct smoothness to the music.” He has been cleared of all charges pertaining to a Louisiana bank heist in the summer of ‘09, although some investigations remain curiously incomplete. Find Doc Pine & The Respect He Deserves on Facebook or their website.

Quarantine Takeover – Red Sammy

Monday, August 24th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we hand over the keys to Baltimore band Red Sammy! Listen in at 7pm Tuesday and Thursday to take a wander through the minds of Adam Trice and Bruce Elliot from Red Sammy and hear from their new album releasing next week.

Adam Trice is an American writer, singer, and songwriter from Baltimore, MD. In 2007, he began performing in solo and duo ensembles under the name Red Sammy. His unique songwriting style blends rock, folk, country, and blues with thoughtful, and often, deeply emotional words that highlight a poetic sensibility. The name, Red Sammy, is taken from a minor character, Red Sammy Butts, in American southern gothic writer, Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). Notable songwriters and writers of inspiration include: Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Frank Black/The Pixies, Raymond Carver, W.C. Williams, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Bukowski, and many others.

Bruce Elliott is a Baltimore native with a life-long passion for music. He reluctantly put his musical ambitions on hold after college, choosing instead to pursue a career in science and technology. Once he had established himself as a responsible tax-paying adult, however, he made good on a promise to himself to return to his pursuit of playing the guitar in a band. He began by playing open-mic jams and then over the years played in several local bands including The Wharf Rats, To Big To Fail, and Retro Deluxe, as well as various lineups with veteran of the local music scene, Georgie Jessup. His current on-going effort is with the Red Sammy band, with whom he has played since 2014, contributing to three CDs. His playing style reflects influences of J.J. Cale, Eric Clapton, Jerry Garcia, and many others.

Quarantine Takeover – Saleem

Sunday, July 26th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover is a study in the sounds of Hip Hop protest. Saleem is bringing back the songs that inspired him and will keep protesters fueled up to demand change in the world. I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.”
