Things are crazy out there. Stay safe. Andy Bianculli, songwriting frontman from Austin's mini-orchestra that could have been the house band on "Playboy After Dark", Star Parks returns to the show for episode 892! Their latest album, the gorgeous and groovy, New Sounds Of Late Capitalism is available now on Modern Outsider! Find them at Andy and I have a great conversation about making New Sounds Of Late Capitalism with producer Danny Reisch and the reel-to-reel tape machine that defined the sound, how to get older in music without becoming uncool, weird music collaborations (see Bob Dylan and Kurtis Blow) and much more! I hope you enjoy our espresso-fueled conversation. I sure did. Let's get down!
