Off The Dome: Passing Highs with davyrockett

We try something new in this episode, an alternate format we’re calling (for now) “Off The Dome.” One of us picks a topic of interest, tightly organizes the episode around demonstrating the topic, and the other two of us “play” dumb and ask questions for “your” benefit… because of course we’re brilliant and already know everything. In this episode, davyrockett drones on about high pass filters, but we promise it’s not boring—we still act like idiots.

About!… Family with Kyle Phelan

For the last show of King Taylor Project’s five-week Tea Bee Detour, we had the immense pleasure of sharing a stage with the incredible Kyle Phelan Band. Our hearts completely overfilled and exploded, and our ghosts recorded this podcast at Kyle’s now-haunted house within a couple of hours after the gig. Get uncomfortable with all the gushing. Find out if that’s what she said.

About!… Trolling into Obscurity with Happy Heartbreak

Seattle-based band Happy Heartbreak bursts into our studio during their February Feels Tour to regale us with hilarity from the road! The band is fronted by our friend and former San Diegan Craig Suede, a man who really knows how to mustache. We couldn’t be happier to drink their whiskey and recruit their efforts to help us ruin our awful studio carpet. Get a tote for your emotional baggage, meet Harold the Troll, and have the back of your head featured in a Budget Rent-a-Car lifestyle photo.

About!… Us

About!… Cooking Up Music with Craig Madden

For this episode we invite San Diego chef and longtime friend of Sandi’s, Craig Madden, to help us force upon our listeners inelegant comparisons between kitchen-ing and music-ing. Indifferent audiences destroy your soul. Baking destroys your kitchen. Craig destroys a mongoose.

Craig currently works as a chef at Terra American Bistro, a farm to table restaurant committed to local, sustainable, organic agriculture, and influenced by the preparation styles of North, Central, and South American cuisine.

About!… The End of the World with Allen Hinds

Allen Hinds invites us to his home on a rainy L.A. day to drink some coffee and smell some whiskey. An accomplished touring and session guitarist with an incredible list of previous employers and collaborators, Allen is now enslaved by two mind-controlling house cats who keep forcing him to release his own projects, much to the world’s delight. Allen gets a little apocalyptic. Laurel Canyon gets a little rain. Everyone gets a little whiff of peat.
