    Marc Farrell + Children Having Children (Live)

    As we ease back into drinks with friends, we are joined by our newest friend and rum entrepreneur, Marc Farrell. In summer 2019, young Trinidadian entrepreneur Marc, a Harvard Biz alum + Starbucks' youngest ever VP, set out on his own to challenge expectations around rum in the U.S. and reinvigorate the way people taste, experience and talk about the spirit, launching a premium rum brand that did away with the tired old pirate and plantation tropes and instead genuinely reflected his Caribbean heritage. Now Ten To One's award-winning rums can be found in bars + restaurants throughout NYC + the country and online for nationwide shipping.

    NYC-based Children Having Children is emerging from the pandemic and joins us live to talk about their new single and video for “Too Little Too Late.” The track finds Children Having Children exploring a new instrumental palette reminiscent at times of Bjork and Tori Amos. We talk about their new video and the prospect of upcoming shows as we get back to normal. CHC wants our audience to know that all streaming proceeds and digital sales for the track will be donated to Extinction Rebellion.

    Matchbook Distilling Co. + Art d’Ecco (Demos)

    Matchbook Distilling Co. + Art d’Ecco (Demos)

    Leslie Merinoff is the co-founder of Matchbook Distilling Co. in upstate New York. This small batch, bespoke distillery comes with the intention of coaxing spirits into being from the ground up.

    Art d’Ecco joins us to talk about his new record, In Standard Definition. A concept album about entertainment. Like channels on an old television set - each song presents an episodic look into this world, our obsession with celebrities and the power they hold over us. Joining forces with producer/engineer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, New Pornographers, Destroyer) in ocean-side studio The Hive, In Standard Definition sees d’Ecco packing his heftiest punch yet. Through Stewart’s vintage set up, a decoupage of authentic sounds was recorded to 2-inch tape on a 50- year-old console, forming a musical reflection of the era it evokes.

Brain Food

A really excellent intertwining of the history of food with music, but also culture, how spaces and systems and the people who make them up change over time - really informative and just tons of delightful asides and nuggets of wisdom and weird facts. It’s weird and great and insightful - great guest gets too!
