Guster - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt

With over 20 years and six albums under its belt, Guster finds new sounds and fresh approaches to recording on its seventh release, Evermotion. On this album, the band rediscovers the carefree, fearless ease that they had when they joined forces with “two acoustic guitars and a pair of bongos” as college students at Tufts University in Boston.

In my conversation with frontman Ryan Miller and drummer Brian Rosenwercel, the guys discussed how having more space between writing sessions, more physical distance between bandmates, and the guidance of producer Richard Swift (The Shins, The Black Keys) led Guster to “break through a wall."

My Mummy: The Big Broadcast for February 1, 2015

by Rich Conaty

Quoting my "Big Broadcast" Volume 9 notes, "Beautiful Love," from The Mummy, is heard " Zita Johann soaks up Universal Studio's faux Egyptian panorama." The song took four writers, including Haven Gillespie, who's being saluted on tonight's show. There are nine more birthday celebrations, including Eubie Blake, James P. Johnson, an early influence on Fats Waller and composer of "Charleston," my friend Dolly Dawn, and Herman Hupfeld, who I never met, but left us "As Time Goes By."
