Saosin (Beau Burchell)

Thursday May 16, 2024

Thursday May 16, 2024

A lot’s going on in the world of Saosin right now. They’re gearing up to release Live From The Garden Amphitheater, a live album recorded at their 2023 20th anniversary shows with both lead vocalists (Anthony Green and Cove Reber) that includes a full performance of their debut EP Translating The Name, covers (of Sunny Day Real Estate, At the Drive-In, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Blindside), and more; they have a re-recorded “Saosin’s Version” of their self-titled album on the way in order to give the album a long-awaited vinyl re-release (due to rights issues with Capitol Records); they’re about to go on their first tour with Cove in 14 years; and they have new music in the works. With all this going on, we caught up with founding member Beau Burchell for an hour-long, career-spanning discussion on the BrooklynVegan podcast that ranges from Beau’s pre-Saosin days to the band’s future plans.

Minneapolis indie-punk band VIAL join us on the BrooklynVegan podcast in celebration of their excellent new album burnout, out 3/29 via Get Better Records. It’s their third album, and in my opinion their best yet, with everything from punk ragers to brighter indie pop and a lyrical theme that tells the story of a person losing a relationship, with all the anger, sadness, guilt, and apathy (and humor!) that comes with that. Guitarist and co-lead vocalist KT Branscom and drummer Katie Fischer join us on the show to talk about coming up in the Minneapolis DIY scene, blowing up during lockdown thanks to the power of social media, and returning as a full-time touring band once live music started happening again. We also discuss some of the themes and influences behind the new album, the Nirvana song VIAL cover at every show, making a ska version of one of their songs with JER, and much more.
 
VIAL also appear in the first issue of the new (free!) BrooklynVegan digital magazine: https://redeem.emags.com/brooklyn_vegan_magazine

Ned Russin, leader of Glitterer and co-vocalist of the currently-dormant Title Fight, joins us on the BV show in celebration of Glitterer's great new album Rationale, out this week via ANTI- Records. The conversation veers into topics like DIY ethos vs capitalist realities, art vs commerce and the way art is valued (or undervalued) in general), and other similar ideas that informed the lyricism on Rationale.

Dan Yemin has not one but two bands with new albums out this year: Paint It Black‘s first album in 10 years (and first for Revelation), Famine, as well as the second LP by Open City (which also includes Paint It Black/Ceremony’s Andy Nelson and members of Bridge and Tunnel, Titus Andronicus, and Ted Leo + the Pharmacists), Hands In The Honey Jar. With all this exciting stuff happening in his world, we invited him on the latest episode of the BrooklynVegan podcast.
Throughout our hour-long conversation, we talked about longevity in punk and hardcore, bridging the gap between different generations, writing political/protest music in the face of hopelessness, what it means to Dan to be on Revelation Records, and much more from throughout Dan’s rich history, from the early days of Lifetime to Kid Dynamite to the 20+ years he’s spent playing guitar in Paint It Black.

Norman Brannon of Texas Is The Reason, New End Original, Shelter, and more (and currently touring guitarist for Thursday) recently relanched his legendary '90s hardcore fanzine Anti-Matter as a Substack, and we invited him on the BrooklynVegan podcast to talk more about the relaunch, and why it made sense to bring it back today. The conversation took all kinds of interesting twists and turns, and I think if you're into any type of hardcore then and/or now, it's very worth listening to what Norman had to say.

Pool Kids

Tuesday Jul 25, 2023

Tuesday Jul 25, 2023

The latest episode of the BrooklynVegan Podcast is an interview with Florida emo/math rock band Pool Kids. We caught up with the band in the midst of their headlining tour in continued support of their breakthrough 2022 self-titled sophomore LP, which just celebrated its one-year anniversary this month, and also surrounding the release of their new split EP with their hardcore alter-egos POOL. We called them up while they were in the van and running late to their San Francisco show, so we had to weather a few minor technical difficulties caused by cell phone service, but we ended up having a great chat during which the band reflected on their breakout year, discussed the new EP, dove into their 2017 formation and backstory, and much more.
