Quarantine Takeover – Liminal Drifter

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we find ourselves with the furthest ever Quarantine Takeover host with Liminal Drifter from Perth, Australia! join us Tuesday or Thursday night at 7pm Eastern and be prepared for some amazing ambient grooves from all over the world and some special rarities. Liminal Drifter is an ongoing travelogue between identities, physical places and states of consciousness. Many of these dreamy, evocative slices of ambient electronica evolved on hand-held mobile devices, away from the studio, while traveling or visiting new places. This sense of contemplative, exploratory rootlessness imbues his work with the wistfulness and open narrative we often associate with travel. (more…)

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.
