BKA #TBT: Vodeo

TBT Update: Vodeo will be performing Saturday at the 35 Denton festival. You can also catch them later this month: 3/19 at Magnolia Motor Lounge and 3/25 at the Aardvark. They also finally have that stellar self-titled EP in hard copy form now, so grab that up too, while you’re there. Peace.

—————————————————————————————————————

A recent discovery of mine, Vodeo, a Fort Worth quartet formerly known as Shake the Moon, have a sound that hearkens back to the Yacht rock sounds of Kenny Loggins and Hall and Oates. Their self-titled EP, produced by Taylor Tatsch, just dropped back in October, and it’s full of radio-ready goodness. It’s probably my favorite local EP of the year. The boys (frontman Jonathan Gehringer, bassist/vocalist Jacob Pullig, keyboardist/vocalist Drew Harakal, and drummer Jason Whorton) sat down to answer a few questions for us about whether or not they’ve invested in that first yacht yet (or maybe just the same old questions I ask everyone).

Author’s Note: Just caught these guys live, and they’re pretty much a must see, if only to hear the sick grooves that Jacob Pullig is laying down while watching the pure satisfaction that Jacob Pullig is feeling at the sick grooves he’s laying down. Pretty entertaining. High five, Jacob!

Me: For starters, tell us a little about yourself. How did you first get into music? And when did you know this is what you want to do for a living (money be damned)?

JP: We had been in several different bands over the years. Jon, Jason and I all went to the same school, but didn’t play together until later on. We joined as a band a couple years ago. We started off as just Jon, myself, and a drummer. We wrote a couple songs and played out a bit. We eventually picked up a keys/synth player along the way to smooth shit out, Drew Harakal, and my good friend of 10 years Jason Whorton when our Craigslist drummer bailed…good ole Craigslist.

JG: Second part of that question is a little tough. It’s just what we do. I personally love it because it’s a great way to express yourself. If you can connect to one person, that’s all that really matters. From the too-drunk 50-something at the club, to the shy kid in the corner, punkers, frat kids, skeezers… you’ve got to entertain. You’ve got to connect by any means necessary. (Short answer: Hanson “Mmbop”)

Me: How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard it before?

JP: Boz Skaggs, Ambrosia, Alan Parsons, Kenny Loggins, Darrell Hall and John Oates all boned and had a P-Funk baby, LOL, another thing that’s really hard to explain/describe. The term Yacht Rock keeps on being thrown around town. We don’t quite understand it. We don’t even own dinghies.

Me: Who are some of your biggest musical influences, and why?

JW: Todd Rundgren, Curtis Mayfield, Hall and Oates, George Clinton and the P-Funk, to Harry Nilsson, Glen Campbell, Paul McCartney & Wings, could go on for about 2 days on this, really anything that comes across sincere and honest.

Me: Which of your songs means the most ot you, and if you don’t mind me asking, why?

JP: Tough one, probably “Pillow Talking”. It’s a song I demoed out before conception of the band. It’s kinda one of those “Ugh, I’m fed up with growing up” songs when you look at it. “Trading pens and pencils for bayonets”, dropping out of a rat race and playing war games and being a dirt bag Lord of the Flies style, with a touch of (aye girl, eyebrow raise and wink wink) lust.

Me: If you could open for any act, dead or alive, who would it be, and why?

JW: Foreigner, summer of 1978. Duh…

Me: Any favorite new musical acts, local or otherwise?

JP: Unknown Mortal Orchestra

JG: Portugal. the Man

DH: Snarky Puppy

JW: Tame Impala

Me: What’s your “stranded on an island” record?

JG: Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti

JP: Ned Doheny’s Hard Candy

DH: Todd Rundgren’s Something/Anything

JW: the Beatles’ White Album

Me: Moving onto the home front, what are your favorite (and least favorite) things about the DFW music scene?

DH: Ha! I really don’t want to answer because I don’t want to make people hate me. My favorite part of the scene is how much support and response we’ve gotten from our peers on how we stand out a bit from the rest of the scene, musically. The least favorite is that the biggest market in DFW still seems to be for cover bands locally, or larger regional/national acts.

Me: Favorite DFW venue to play (or see a show). Why?

DH: I’m a huge fan of Magnolia Motor Lounge. They have a bit of a built in crowd, but they are constantly trying new things with different genres other than what they’ve been known for (Americana and Country). I have to give a shout out to Wayside Ballroom as well. It’s definitely one of my new favorites.

Me: Any favorite local acts people should be looking out for?

DH: Criminal Birds from Denton, TX. I know they’re gearing up to go record again, but they’ve got 2 EP’s already out that are some of the best from the DFW scene that I’ve seen in the past few years.

JP: the Hendersons from Fort Worth, TX. Nolan Robertson’s song smithing and voice are something that kinda blew me back first time I heard it. I hear (shh shh) they are working up some stuff with a prominent producer/artist out of state. You’ll def be hearing some stuff from them in the future.

JW: Leon Bridges….duh.

JG: Trái Bơ from Fort Worth, TX. They are truly one of the most interesting and melodic bands in the hometown. Their first album is full of earworms.

Me: And for shits and giggle, what’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?

JG: I clock in about 30 hrs on average a week in Madden.

DH: I’m an ordained minister, and have officiated weddings before.

JW: I’ve recently started a podcast for fun with a buddy, called the “Primal Vision Podcast”. We talk mostly around music and entertainment.

JP: I binge watched all 11 seasons of Cheers

A big thanks to Vodeo for taking time out to give us the first full band interview in this feature. Check them out at a gig near you when you get the chance, and I guess if you’re getting married and need an officiant, give Drew a call. Check out Vodeo’s new self-titled EP below.

Top Shows Coming to Town for 6/19/15-6/25/15

Going off of Pollstar screwed me over again, and I missed Leon’s Barefoot at the Belmont (then I guess I blocked it out, cause I was mad I couldn’t get tickets. Oh well, looks like it’s gonna rain there anyway) last week, so I’ve hopped up my attempt to roll my concert calendar into my spreadsheet, so I won’t miss as much. Still mostly going off of Pollstar this week, but maybe I can get everything loaded by the time next week rolls around.

1 Leon Bridges @ Scat Jazz Lounge (Fort Worth) Sat 6/20/15

The kid’s blowing up. Playing 2 shows Saturday at the intimate jazz lounge, to celebrate the release of his debut record. Tickets have been selling on the secondary market for upwards of $200. Don’t worry, you’ll get another chance soon. He’ll be at the Majestic in November (might want to get on that though).

2 Brian Wilson w/ Rodriguez @ Verizon Theatre (Grand Prairie) Weds 6/24/15

Probably shouldn’t have the young upstart ahead of one of the greatest songwriters of all time, but Leon’s is a much hotter ticket, so I’m going with that.

3 Avett Brothers w/ Old Crow Medicine Show @ Verizon Theatre (Grand Prairie) Thurs 6/25/15

Seems like these guys are here every month. They’re definitely in town quite often for a band that’s not from Texas.

4 Best Coast w/ Bully @ Granada Theater (Lower Greenville) Weds 6/24/15

Still a little surprised I haven’t seen them yet. Bethany Cosentino makes some of the best beach inspired rock going right now. Maybe not quite on the level of #2 up there, but it’s still solid.

5 Dawes @ Strauss Square (Dallas) Weds 6/24/15

A nice little indie group that craft some lovely songs.

6 Darius Rucker @ Gexa Energy Pavilion (Dallas) Fri 6/19/15

Darius “Don’t Call Me Hootie” Rucker does his country thing on Friday. No Blowfish necessary.

7 White Snake @ Verizon Theatre (Grand Prairie) Mon 6/22/15

HERE I GO AGAIN ON MY OWN!!!! Oh, sorry, got distracted. 3 of the top 7 shows this week are on a week day at Verizon.

8 Jodeci w/ Tony! Toni! Tone! @ Verizon Theatre (Grand Prairie) Sun 6/21/15

And they’ve got some throw back R&B on Sunday after brunch. Tony! Toni! Tone! opens.

9 Jefferson Starship @ Gas Monkey (Dallas) Thurs 6/25/15

No Grace Slick = meh

10 Charlie Mars @ Live Oak Music Hall (Fort Worth) Sat 6/20/15

SMU Grad, singer/songwriter Charlie Mars heads to Funkytown this weekend.

Also in town this week: 6/19 Yelawolf @ Bomb Factory, Quiet Company @ Nasher Sculpture Center, Josh Abbott Band @ Lone Star Park, Hudson Moore @ Levitt Pavilion, Mark Chesnutt @ Billy Bob’s, the Dan Band @ House of Blues, Heartbyrne @ Granada Theater; 6/20 Delta Rae @ the Kessler Theater, Grupo Fantasma @ Dada, Kevin Fowler @ Billy Bob’s, Black Violin @ Levitt Pavilion; 6/21 Gedeon Luke @ Levitt Pavilion; 6/24 Say Anything @ Gas Monkey; 6/25 Kathy Griffin @ Majestic Theatre, Royal Southern Brotherhood @ Levitt Pavilion

Anyways, that’s all for this week, so……

Get out there and see some shows!

How I Would Plan It: Governor’s Ball Music Festival 2015

Governor’s Ball is staged on Randall’s Island in NYC. It started in 2011 and while this year’s lineup isn’t as impressive as the past few years, it’s still one of the major US festivals. Another one with staggered sets, Governor’s Ball has only 4 stages, so uh, here goes.

Governor’s Ball Music Festival 2015
Friday, Jun 5
12:15-12:45 the Districts (Honda Stage)

Their album was kinda ‘meh’, but there are some solid tracks on it, should be a good set to jam to. Especially, seeing as the day’s just starting.
12:45-1:30 DIIV (Big Apple Stage)
Here’s another cool indie band I haven’t seen live.
1:30-2:15 Rae Sremmurd (GovBallNYC Stage)
The rap group that name their band the way Nomar Garciaparra’s dad names his kid.
2:15-3:00 Benjamin Booker (Big Apple Stage)
This guy required a stage move for week 2 at ACL. Hopefully, he won’t surprise any one with the massive crowds this year.
3:00-3:45 Charli XCX (Honda Stage)
Hey, it’s my favorite emerging pop princess.
3:45-4:45 MØ (Ponce De Leon)
And here’s another one of those.
4:45-5:15 Chromeo (GovBallNYC Stage)
These guys always put on a fun show
5:15-5:45 Vance Joy (Honda Stage)
Currently touring with Taylor Swift, but you wanna go see “Riptide”, right?
5:45-6:45 Death From Above 1979 (Big Apple Stage)
These guys had a high energy set when we saw them at ACL
6:45-7:30 the Decemberists (Honda Stage)
I’m a nerd, and I’ve been to a lot of shows, so the Decemberists are further up my list of bands I need to go see for the first time than they probably ought to be.
7:30-8:00 Florence + the Machine (GovBallNYC Stage)
Florence was better than expected when we saw her live a few years back.
8:00-9:15 St Vincent (Big Apple Stage)
Given the oppurtunity, I’ll usually see Annie Clark.
9:15-11:00 My Morning Jacket (Honda Stage)
Another indie group with a pretty renowned live show. The first time I saw them was a little too gimmicky and a little more “meh?”, but the last couple times, they were pretty legit.

Saturday, Jun 6
12:15-12:45 Holychild (GovBallNYC Stage)

the next big brat pop band from LA.
12:45-1:30 Kate Tempest (Big Apple Stage)
British poet/rapper. Those words make sense together, right?
1:30-2:15 Clean Bandit (GovBallNYC Stage)
Hot emerging dance group
2:15-3:00 J Roddy Walston and the Business (Big Apple Stage)
If you like your rock dirty and bluesy, these guys are right up your alley. They put on a SHOW.
3:00-3:45 Marina and the Diamonds (GovBallNYC Stage)
Another emerging indie pop group.
3:45-4:45 Sharon Van Etten (Big Apple Stage)
the beloved Brooklyn singer-songwriter, another one I haven’t seen
4:45-5:45 Angus and Julia Stone (Honda Stage)
Australian brother-sister folk duo.
5:45-6:45 Future Islands (Gotham Stage)
the band that wowed Dave and went viral had a huge 2014
6:45-8:00 Bjork (GovBallNYC Stage)
If only to see what kinda weird shit she’ll pull.
8:00-9:15 Flume (Big Apple Stage)
23 year-old Aussie producer is one of electronic music’s hottest names.
9:15-11:00 Ryan Adams (Honda Stage)
I picked Ryan because he’s been killing it on the festival circuit this year, but if you were digging Flume, you’re probably gonna want to stroll over to Deadmau5, at least for a little bit, right?

Sunday, Jun 7
12:15-12:45 the Picturebooks (Honda Stage)
To be honest, no idea, but I like to get there early and discover things, so I’d check it out.
12:45-1:30 Bishop Nehru (Gotham Tent)
18 year old emerging NY rapper.
1:30-2:15 Strand of Oaks (Honda Stage)
And if the hip hop got you pumped up, the chilled folk sounds of Strand of Oaks should cool you back down.
2:15-3:00 Hermitude (Gotham Tent)
Emerging electronic duo from Australia.
3:00-3:45 Sturgill Simpson (GovBallNYC Stage)
Like Future Islands, Sturgill is a guy who bounce around a while before blowing up in 2014.
3:45-4:45 Royal Blood (Big Apple Stage)
The next big thing in Britain is trying to take over in the US as well.
4:45-5:45 Tame Impala (GovBallNYC Stage)
And these Australians just may do it first. One of my faves.
5:45-6:45 the War on Drugs (Big Apple Stage)
Probably released my favorite album of 2014.
6:45-8:00 Big Gigantic (Honda Stage)
I hear their shows are pretty spectacular
8:00-9:15 Flying Lotus (Gotham Stage)
LA electronic artist draws more acclaim with every new release
9:15-10:30 Lana Del Rey (Honda Stage)
the fest is almost over and the Summertime Sadness begins.
10:30-11:00 the Black Keys (GovBallNYC Stage)
I haven’t seen Lana before and the Keys were disappointing last time I saw them, but I love them, and if you do too, you might want to catch more of this set before you go back home.
Hope this helps.

Anyways, if you’re going, have a good one.

How I Would Plan It: Shaky Knees Music Festival 2015

Shaky Knees Music Festival is a relatively new music festival (in its 3rd year). The fest takes place in Atlanta’s Central Park May 8-10 and has a pretty well curated lineup for such a newbie. Anyways, here’s how I planned it. I do appreciate all the stages having the same staggering on the schedules.

Shaky Knees Music Festival 2015
Friday, May 8
12:30-1:00 Blank Range (Boulevard)

I’ve seen Surfer Blood and they weren’t incredibly inspiring, but they have a decent batch of songs. But I’d be interested to see Blank Range has to offer.
1:00-1:45 Halsey (Buford Hwy)
Well, I did just tell you to check out Halsey, so check out Halsey. That said, this might be one of the worst fest conflicts I’ve seen before 2:00
1:45-2:30 Jukebox the Ghost (Peachtree)
Alright, I guess I can do this one.
2:30-3:15 Tennis (Buford Hwy)
Man, I loved John Grant’s album a couple of years ago, but I hear Tennis is pretty epic, so we’ll give them the nod, but maybe check out a bit of John Grant.
3:15-4:15 Wavves (Boulevard)
Nathan Williams is one of the greatest purveyors of 90’s style alt-rock in today’s landscape.
4:15-5:15 Mac DeMarco (Ponce De Leon)
A nice critical darling to get you into the late of the day. Should be a fun one.
5:15-6:15 Manchester Orchestra (Peachtree)
In Manchester Orchestra vs Kaiser Chiefs, I’m taking the home team.
6:15-7:15 TV on the Radio (Piedmont)
A little indie-rock royalty, but you might feel like splitting this one with Death From Above or Mountain Goats, whatever you’re into. I know, I’m not helping.
7:15-8:15 Mastodon (Peachtree)
What the hell, Mastodon vs American Football? Home team again.
8:15-9:00 James Blake (Buford Hwy)
I love me some James Blake, so this can be my one split set for the day
9:00-9:30 the Pixies (Piedmont)
And let’s hope Francis saves the big ones for the end.
9:30-11:00 the Strokes (Peachtree)
Umm, be ready to wait, both times I’ve seen them they were 20-30 minutes late.

Saturday, May 9
12:30-1:15 Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band (Buford Hwy)

the Bad Books frontman had a couple nice solo records a couple years back
1:15-2:00 Speedy Ortiz (Boulevard)
Sadie DuPuis is a rock star, but Mariachi El Bronx are a fun show too.
2:00-2:45 Viet Cong (Buford Hwy)
Their self-titled debut is one of my top-rated records so far for 2015.
2:45-3:45 Real Estate (Peachtree)
This jangle-pop band is one I haven’t seen
3:45-4:45 Black Lips (Ponce De Leon)
Another local group, these guys always pull some tricks for their live shows.
4:45-5:45 Flogging Molly (Peachtree)
Time for a rollicking set of Irish rock
5:45-6:45 Neutral Milk Hotel (Ponce De Leon)
Honestly, I’m not a huge Interpol fan, and I believe this is supposed to be the last NMH tour, so this is a pretty easy pick for me.
6:45-7:45 Milky Chance (Boulevard)
I’m going with the newness of Milky Chance over the retroness of Social Distortion.
7:45-9:00 Wilco (Ponce De Leon)
More indie rock royalty I haven’t seen. Don’t care about Noel Gallagher when his brother’s not around for some classic Brit-Pop thrown in with all the drama.
9:00-11:00 the Avett Brothers (Peachtree)
These guys are festival stalwarts that are apparently starting to get some big headlining spots.

Sunday, May 10
12:30-1:15 Matthew E White (Piedmont)
I saw Nikki Lane on NYE this year, and she was pretty intriguing, but I think Matthew E White has more going for him.
1:15-2:00 Mini Mansions (Peachtree)
Wasn’t overly impressed with them when I saw them open for Arctic Monkeys, but the album is excellent, so maybe they’d be worth another go.
2:00-2:45 the Mowgli’s (Buford Hwy)
Another hot emerging band with a nice summer jam sound.
2:45-3:45 the Sheepdogs (Boulevard)
Canadian band with a bluesy rock sound. Or for more indie royalty, check out the Both (Ted Leo and Aimee Mann)
3:45-4:15 Best Coast (Piedmont)
I’m going to split this one and get some summer jams from Bethany Cosentino.
4:15-4:45 Heartless Bastards (Buford Hwy)
Then catch one of the best female vocalists around, Erika Wennerstrom.
4:45-5:45 Dr Dog (Peachtree)
Excellent indie folk band that I’ll be catching live for the first time this summer.
5:45-6:45 Panda Bear (Buford Hwy)
Animal Collective’s Noah Lennox has produced some pretty respectable records as a solo artist.
6:45-7:45 Ryan Adams (Peachtree)
From what I hear, the former Whiskeytown frontman has had a pretty impressive run on his current tour.
7:45-9:00 Old Crow Medicine Show (Ponce De Leon)
Looking forward to seeing these guys for the first time here next month
9:00-10:30 Tame Impala (Peachtree)
Along with the Shakes, these guys are the top emerging artists on my must see list.
Hope this helps.

Anyways, if you’re going, have a good one.

Music Discovery of the Day for 3/31/2015

Today’s Discovery for Tuesday, March 31 comes from the Atlantic Coast of Florida. Retro Surf-rock group Beach Day hails from Hollywood, FL, just south of Fort Lauderdale. Their vintage sound invokes the sounds of surfer girl groups from days gone by, and is perfect for chilling on the beach with a drink (in a coconut/pineapple, with an umbrella) and watching the tides roll in. Kick back and enjoy Beach Day’s “BFF’s” and have a happy Tuesday.

Listen: Beach Day “BFF’s”
