CHARLY BLISS

Premiere art, boutique, and consignment establishment Paris on Ponce allowed Public Radio Sessions to set up on their Beltline dock to film a special couple episodes with Charly Bliss of Brooklyn, New York.

In town to play The Masquerade, they only had a couple tight hours to load in and loud out before their evening load in and eventual later load out. They snuck in a couple songs for our purposes though, which you can view below.

DAIKAIJU

Daikaiju is one of those bands you cannot look away from beginning the second they pick up their instruments. We had the pleasure of stealing these guys for a quick on-the-fly Public Radio, utilizing the Atlanta docks just off of the beltline in the Old Fourth Ward.

Despite the scrutiny from a business nearby, we, along with the public couldn’t get enough of the explosive and energetic vibe that this ‘revival surf rock’ brought to the table.

Due to the chance of police arrival, the band quickly played through all four of their delicately raucous songs. Check out the full performance below:

JOCK GANG

 

The music scene in Atlanta is thriving, but few engage, distort, and perform with the skill and casual energy of Jock Gang. Despite being led with vocals by Jared Collins, the five-piece performs on an equal playing field, each member intrical in their own fashion.

Public Radio Sessions caught up with Jock Gang at the home of Jared and Kimberly Collins, filming the band perform a quiet (for them) set around a table set for brunch. They perform “Coke Wall” off their upcoming LP and psychedelic “Tell Me About It Pt. 1” off older “EP.” Watch below.

WorldWideWonders brings a wonderfully unique flavor into the raw world of underground Hip-Hop, creating a humorous and controversial environment. Since their latest album release titled “Satire”, the group is focusing on the evolution of their sound, as well as the eye-opening impact of their content.

Check out our three videos with WorldWideWonders below:

LOVE & THE ZEALOUS

Right before we filmed Valley Queen we filmed a great soul / rock band Love & The Zealous (also part of the Jam in the Van crew). Instead of a car show, we got a firetruck show, with new firefighters doing drivers training, weaving through traffic cones, and splashing their big ‘ol fire hose in the parking lot.

Below are a couple videos with Love & the Zealous. Enjoy.

SPORTS

SPORTS marks our return with season two of Public Radio Sessions. We are especially excited, since we are finally releasing content that we filmed toward the end of first seasons, in the sunny summer of July 2016.

SPORTS‘, part of Father/Daughter Record’s excellent catalogue of burgeoning musicians, second full-length album, All of Something, is a catchy tribute to doubts and triumphs of youth. Their more recent release Sunchokes hosts “Tiny Planets” in our video release as well. This release offers a similar collection of hook-filled numbers, more affected with filters and effects—a maturation for the band.

Check out our three videos with SPORTS below:

Public /\ Radio Episode 102, “Tiny Planets”

Public /\ Radio Episode 103,  “Dripping” & “Washing Machine”

QUIET HOLLERS

The first video sessions of Savannah Stopover bring us up to episode 99! Quiet Hollers put on an awesome show in the video game-laden, VHS rental portion of the Graveface Records store.

Running through a few tracks off their 2015 self-titled LP, Quiet Hollers demonstrated a keen adaptation to our acoustic needs, picking up acoustic bass, a violin, a mini guitar, and a snare-like percussion box. Check out “I’m So Abhorred,” “Aviator Shades,” and “Côte d’Azur” below.

YOUR FRIEND

The final Public Radio Session filmed at Savannah Stopover featured a very stripped-down set from a normally very plugged in band. That band is Your Friend, based out of Kansas, led by singer and songwriter Taryn Miller.

Positioned along the riverside railing in the historic downtown district of Savannah, GA, they performed with one drum, two battery powered synths, acoustic guitar and a borrowed acoustic bass. Passersby got to listen in for a few of the tracks, including a visit from Alex G and a swaddle of baby carriages.

NEW MADRID

At the end of a long day of filming we met up with Athens rock group New Madrid at Sulfer Studios in Savannah, GA. Upon first glance it looked like we had wandered into some sort of funeral home. Little did we know, we had the pleasure of filming these guys in front of and art exhibit by SCAD Alumn, Finn Schult.

In town only a few days for Savannah Stopover, these kind gents gave us one hell of a performance. Check out their first lil’ diddy “Forest Gum” below:
