*** PODCAST #135 Chris Djuric (Obroa-skai, Kodama, Sun Up Sun Down) ***

     Going all the way back to the first or second show I ever reviewed on this was Mahria. Soon afterward I became obsessed with their new band Rayleigh. After they disbanded OBROA-SKAI was born and I've been following them since. Originally a three-piece, the band absorbed Chris Djuric during the pandemic. Chris was instrumental in helping craft the upcoming 12"LP 'Science Progresses One Funeral at a Time'. I caught up with him and discussed a myriad of things including but not limited to: defined by music (sick riffs), the height of practicing, dialing back the music ego, Peter Brötzmann in general, the second coming of Nirvana, the cover band, joining Kodama and Sun Up Sun Down, the Raein-esque band that never happened and how it led to Obroa-skai, terrible rhythms and sounds, the Don Caballero stutter, fantastically collaborative, "Next Door" deconstruction, the upcoming experimental EP, 'Science Progresses One Funeral at a Time' themes, late-night deployment blues, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Ahleuchatistas, Great Falls, Flooding, Last Exit, Nhomme, and Yowie.
