Ep. 61 – The National

A special podcast this week…
ahead of their FIRST EVER visit to Cardiff on Monday 9th December at the Motorpoint Arena
its been an honour and privilege to share a moment with Scott Devendorf from

THE NATIONAL

We discussed the band’s stunning latest release “I Am Easy to Find” and its emotionally wrenching visual companion starring Alicia Vikander (dir: Mike Mills) …also, how could we possibly have a chat without a discussion on some of the most emotive music thats ever been produced, courtesy of the NTL mouthpiece.

Early formative years, the first time Scott met Matt in college and their first ever band Nancy…appropriate choices of beverages ALL ON THE TABLE in this weeks special….as well a few NTL tracks from the catalogue picked by Scott.

It’s a delight to be able to share something I’m so proud of.

Ep. 53 – Panic Shack and CVC

A special DOUBLE INTERVIEW this week as Meg and Romi from Panic Shack chat to Minty and Corinne ahead of one of their FIRST-EVER gigs at Clwb Ifor Bach on the 5th October….

CVC are also in the house – they’ve become part of the Cardiff music scene furniture already after only gigging for just under two years. They’ve reached that next pivotal point as artists, as they release their debut single “Jungle Fever” at Clwb Ifor Bach on the 5th October. So Cesco and Dave join in the fun to make it a wild occasion.

This interview is total mayhem….but we wouldn’t have it any other way! <3
