PODCAST #66 Jared Stimpfl (Orphan Donor, Secret Cutter, Oktober Skyline, Motel Bible)

 

On July 8th 'Unraveled' by ORPHAN DONOR will see the light of day and immediately strip you of the sun. Absolutely devastating, dark and claustrophobic metallic hardcore/sludge (falling somewhere between Isis and Ken Mode), the seven tracks stack together into a colossal, imposing tower of dread, paranoia and death. If you'd like some insight into the record before it's release, as well as a very big ZBR release "reveal" you should check this out immediately. We talk in depth about many-a-thing, including: being inspired by Bush, honking vs. ripping a saxophone, shitting all over recordings, personal growth and its effect on musical progress, life patterns, lessons in hydrating, jackknifing in the Walmart parking lot, drinking pee, Mathcore Index videos, 'Unraveled' lyrical insights and lots more. Bands played in this podcast: The Armed, Pupil Slicer, Ed Gein and Dead Hour Noise. Listen to podcast #66 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link.

Pre-orders go live June 8th, 2021 @Zegema Beach Records

PODCAST #65 Will Killingsworth (Orchid, Ampere, Bucket Full Of Teeth, etc.)


I give you a very golden nuggety podcast with none other than Will K. of Dead Air Studios, Clean Plate Records, Orchid, Ampere, Bucket Full Of Teeth, Longings, Ritual Mess, Laceration, Vaccine, No Faith, etc. In this 65th episode of (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) podcast we talked and laughed about many things, including: being a screamo legend, hair metal, putting on his first show (for Unwound!), the definition of geography, what is time?, the formation of Orchid, does he get asked about Orchid too much?, getting the sound yanked at ABA Fest, the Amherst community, Bremen influences, why "Angel" is the worst Orchid song, the incredibly rich story of why the name "Ampere", the Dune movie, the unfinished 5x5" box set, how he became indoctrinated into the Viper cult, his view of the direction of screamo, and I make him say "screamo" 15 times lol. Bands played in this podcast: Brian Eno, John Carpenter, Ensa, Jenny Piccolo, No Comment and Suppression. Listen to podcast #65 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link.

PODCAST #64 Thomas Schlatter (Hundreds Of AU, Capacities, You & I, etc.)



I would argue that Thomas Schlatter is the embodiment of screamo. At 42 years old, he started You & I when he was 17 and literally hasn't stopped playing screamo since. With a piercing, time-tested scream and his trusty axe, Tom and friends in HUNDREDS OF AU are dropping 'Acting From Remote Satellites' on May 7th, 2021 via Patient Zero Records. Tom took some time away from his wife, pets and library zoom calls to speak with me about his past, present and future in this very special episode of (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) podcast #64. We talk about a plethora of things, including: describes each of his bands in a sentence, dreams coming true at 17, veganism by pinky swear, the depiction of punk and skateboarding in the 80s, touring is just camping, the Paul Alan Connection, screaming vocals in a library, playing remotely written songs together for the first time, the new album, introductions to La Quiete and Italian screamo, undercover screamo fixin' computers, and lots more. Bands played in this podcast: Closer, Piet Onthel (PREMIERE!!!), Reverie (PREMIERE!!!) and Youth Novel. Listen to podcast #64 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link.
