Brandon Lopez is my kind of dude. He’s a young bass player, who attended the New England Conservatory and since 2013, has been living and gigging regularly in New York City. He’s got a sick sense of humor and an even sicker musicianship to match. For this talk, we discuss his upbringing in a cemetery, his non-traditional musical education, new methods of musical distribution and a whole lot more. A good talk with a great cat, who you’ll be hearing more from for years to come.Brandon Lopez

Simon Hanes is a gifted and incredibly busy young musician, who has recently settled in Brooklyn. Since his time at the New England Conservatory, Simon has hit the ground running, helming several ambitious and wildly creative projects, such as Guerilla Toss and Trigger. His most recent project, Tredici Bacci, is a fourteen piece mini orchestra that pays homage to Italian soundtracks from the 1960s & 70s. Their newest record, “Amore Per Tutti”, is available NNA Tapes and is a wildly creative and well executed recording, featuring guest vocals from Charlie Looker, JG Thirlwell and Jennifer Charles. For this episode, Simon talks the pleasures and pains of leading a fourteen piece band with a DIY aesthetic.
