1. Episode 171: This Mountain (Indiana)


    from Harvey Robinson Added 520 1 0

    This just goes to show, that with a talented group of musicians one microphone really is all you need. It's clear that the members of this band drink the same Johnson City Tennessee water that Jill Andrews, Josh Oliver, and Sam Quinn regularly drink. My friend Dalton turned me on to these guys a number of months ago and they did not disappoint. Here they are performing a stripped down version of Indiana from their similarly titled EP.

    • Harvey's Kitchen Episode #166: Natalie Prass, 'When I am Alone' (Part 2)


      from Harvey Robinson Added 454 2 0

      Not only one of the sharpest up-and-coming songwriters in Nashville, Natalie Prass possesses a rare artistic method she infuses into all her endeavors. She handcrafts album artwork and flyers and organizes local vinyl listening parties/drawing sessions, and there appears to be little end to the homespun creativity of this bright young talent. She’s also no slouch in the pipes department either — the girl can sing. Prass’ brand of indie folk is not to be underestimated. While her delicate alto evokes clear benchmarks of influence — see early Rilo Kiley, Feist, Karen Carpenter, etc. — Prass never seems weighed down by the artists she’s absorbed. Instead, she has developed a refreshing guitar-grounded musical vocabulary and a knack for infectious and entrancing tunes. Still, it’s a spirit of invitation and friendship that continues to be Prass’ most pronounced attribute.

        • Episode 150: The David Wax Museum (That's not true)


          from Harvey Robinson Added 249 0 0

          The David Wax Museum returns to our house for another session. Their new album, "Everything is Saved" perhaps an oblique reference to Sam Quinn's album, "Everything is Broken" (that's just a guess) is a wild blend of folk and traditional Mexican music with fantastically ambitious compositions such as "Unfruitful" which hint at a dark vaudevillian milieu whilst simultaneously tacitly expressing their virtuosity. So far this year they've been featured by NPR (All Things Considered, World Cafe, All Songs Considered), opened for the Avett Brothers on numerous occasions, appeared on the PBS NewsHour, and performed at the Newport Folk Festival. They're a busy bunch. Here they are performing, "That's not True" in our hallway. This marks our 150th session.
