It was a cold and icy night when two members of the Omaha band So So Sailors stopped by the studio for an interview. I gave them whiskey and beer. I brandished a vodka rocks and we settled in for an interview. That's the story anyway. Chris and Brendan have currently been promoting the release of their new EP "Young Hearts" and I imagine the interview with the Omaha World Herald wasn't half as fun or interesting as this one. Let's just say there was a bit of editing done to eliminate some off topic convos, (Hint: listen after the end credits to hear some...), but even so, this episode is a bit long as we showcase three songs off of the EP.
Opening song: "New Tattoo" by Brad Hoshaw - Check out his new record on Bandcamp HERE
The So-So Sailors are five sun-burnt stowaways left adrift upon the high seas. Eagerly awaiting land, they dream of a pristine beach where they can sip coconut milk and shoot pistols without fear of criminal prosecution or possible complaints by the neighbors. Nah, screw that (the coconut part anyway)! It's just Chris Machmuller (Ladyfinger), Dan McCarthy (McCarthy Trenching), Alex McManus (The Bruces, Lambchop), Brendan Walsh and Dan Kemp (Bloodcow).
