lo-fi jedi!
hello everyone! i hope you're well. i just got in from washington d.c... a quick one-day trip. i went up with skyrocket! to play a benefit. it was a great time. we had a good show and i walked around on thursday when we got there and the next day, i went running all around the white house and the national mall. i had a great time doing that. i also realized as i was running, that i don't cook enough. i live by myself and it's hard to motivate to cook for just yourself, but i'm going to do it. i need to eat healthier and i need to be a better cook. so, here we go. next week, i'm going to get all the right pots, pans, spices and knives to cook and start picking out recipes... maybe a couple a week. do you know any good recipes? send them to me. thanks!
my guest for episode 113 ishome-recording lo-fi-jedi,  jp pfertner, also known as, oh look out. there's a group of folks i know that grew up recording and writing on four-track cassette machines. jp is one of those guys. so am i! so, we had a lot to talk about.... from learning four-track and music to playing with bands to starting built by snow, becoming a father, making his own video (which is absolutely brilliant) and making his latest album, "orchestral fuzz". you can find out more about oh look out at http://ohlookout.com/ you can watch his video for "monster fiction" which is amazing! i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.

Episode 403: Ocean Of Stars

Thursday Jan 01, 1970

hello friends! i hope you're all braving the extreme heat that is upon us. i'm doing well. just working on some music, booking a live podcast for sept. 9th (details coming soon), prepping for 3 podcasts i'm doing tomorrow etc. so, i listened to the american top 50 chart on spotify this morning while i was running. i probably heard about 15 to 20 songs on shuffle. i wasn't very moved by anything which made me kind of sad. then i realized that there is so much non-mainstream music out there, so much of it comes through this show. i'm really lucky to be in the position to have so much music coming through and getting turned on to so much stuff. it gives me hope. go find some new music. it feels good.my guest for episode 403 is ocean of stars leader, danny grochow! this is danny's second time on the show. he was on a couple of years ago talking about some solo material he was releasing and now he's back with with a new e.p. from his band, ocean of stars. danny is a great guy who is out there playing bass and guitar as a sideman but still makes the time to write, record and perform his original instrumental-prog-rock. we have a great conversation about four track cassette recording, the rpm challenge, finding musicians, writing complex instrumental music, answering want ads and much, much more. i i hope you enjoy our conversation. i sure did. let's get down!ciao! -jg
