I love this podcast!

Description

A weekly music & culture podcast interviewing the musicians, artists, authors, and luminaries of the jamband, festival, and psychedelic communities.

Episode Date
Episode 120 - Pickin' The Grass With Town Mountain
01:59:45

This week's guest is Jeese Langlais from Town Mountain!! Town Mountain is Langlais, Barker, vocalist/guitarist Robert Greer, fiddle player Bobby Britt, and bassist Zach Smith. Since releasing their debut album Original Bluegrass and Roots Country in 2007, they've have made a name for themselves in bluegrass and roots circuits and have amassed a sizable catalog of original songs. They’ve toured with a who’s who of like-minded artists, including Ralph Stanley and His Clinch Mountain Boys, the Del McCoury Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, and many others. 

We hang out with Jesse and talk about becoming a father and how that's changed things for him, how there's a juxtaposition in the way Country Music make you feel and what the lyrics are saying, finding their place in a changing Bluegrass landscape, their new album 'New Freedom Blues', and a whole bunch more!

Episode 119 - A Circle Around The Sun: In Memory Of Our Brother Neal Casal
01:31:51

This week we sit down as a Family in tribute to Neal, and share our memories and thoughts on the passing of our Brother. So much joy, incredible music, and sweet vibrations came from this singularly talented and soulful individual. His passing rocked our community and serves as a reminder of the preciousness of life, the impression we’ve made on others, and the importance of reaching out our hand if our cup is empty.

This is a celebration of the man who touched our lives and made the rhythms that rock our souls in bands like The Chris Robinson brotherhood, Circles Around The Sun, The Cardinals, Ryan Adams, and Hard Working Americans, as well as a call to all those out there who may be hurting or in need of a little Family love.

We love you Neal. Sail on home Brother…..

We sat and talked about his entire life's journey into the music world of The Grateful Dead, what it was like growing up in a musical family, falling in love with the music, discovering he loved the keyboards, and much, much more! We know you're going to enjoy this as much as we did!

Episode 114 - Traveling The Cosmos With Paracosmic
02:05:46

Ash Slater from the California Interstellar Cosmic Funk outfit known as  Paracosmic is our guest this week! Paracosmic is a collaborative project of musicians from various parts of California and The United States. The band’s sound can be described as a funk-based improv flow, incorporating rock and blues with a keen taste for the psychedelic soundscape. Forming through the deep seeded dreams of 4 individuals (Travis Soto, Norman Leo Meginley, Ashton Slater, Brandon Cooke), Paracosmic began in 2015 in Los Angeles through mutual friends in the southern California music scene and festival circuits. 

We talk all about Ash's journey into the land of the Grateful Dead, music, marriage, and beyond. This is one of those sweet moments on No Simple Road where connection happens and the vibe just flows.

Check out Paracosmic's new single: 'Toadie' on Spotify and everywhere music streams. For tour dates and news head over to paracosmicfunk.com

Episode 113 - On The Road With Goose
02:03:44

Our guest this week is the one and only Goose! Goose is an indie-groove band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass and Ben Atkind on drums. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.

We hang out and talk about coming together as a band, lessons they've learned through being on the road, translating a live sound into something memorable in the studio, their rise in popularity and how it's affected them, and a whole bunch more! Make sure to check them out on Nugs.net!

Episode 109 - Life Is Live With Greg Ormont From Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
02:12:27

Our guest this week is the one and only (scrambled) Greg Ormont from Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. We talk to Greg about what it means to give 100%, how to balance work and life in a way that’s meaningful, realizing that at some point we have to take care of ourselves, how being a theater kid gave him a solid foundation, and a whole bunch more!

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is a band whose very existence is rooted in the unyielding quest for joy and positive energy. Blending infectious funk grooves, psychedelic jams, and experimental electronics, the Baltimore four-piece’s new album, ‘Pizazz,’ is a buoyant, blissful reminder of just how much fun music can be. Eschewing the traditional funk band lineup that typically includes keyboards, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong constructs effervescent soundscapes with just two guitars, bass, and drums, crafting their music with a sophisticated ear for both open space and dense layering.

Episode 105 - Admiring The View With The Rumpke Mountain Boys
02:04:00

We're super excited this week to have The Rumpke Mountain Boys as our guest and we can't wait to see them doing a late night set at Northwest String Summit here in a few weeks! We get into some strange and beautiful territory talking about everything from creating a 2 hour live album, being in a band that free flowing and equal, remembering a catalog of over 1000 songs, creating musical fun, and a whole bunch more!

The Rumpke Mountain Boys combine signature vocals, a unique command of string instruments (acoustic guitar, mandolin, upright bass and banjo) and dynamic special effects into a singular musical experience. An emotion filled musical stream of consciousness with no setlist, minimal structure, and intuitive improvisational flow. In this way, they summon the energy of the crowd as their guide in linking just the right music to precise moments in time.

Episode 102 - Lost Ox On The Porch
02:55:34

The guys from the genre-blending Portland, OR-based band, Lost Ox, joined us on The Porch for a conversation around growing up listening to The Dead, their first LSD experience at a show, how being in a band mirrors romantic relationships, realizing that you're playing in the band, and much more!

Lost Ox has been cooking up their own all-original mix of prog rock, country Americana and funk since early 2017.

Hot off recording their first full-length album, "Wildheart", the band brings their own brand of inventive playfulness to performances, weaving dark, murderous yarns in the same stride as delightfully groovy jive numbers, saturated richly with improvisation and interplay.

Epsiode 101 - Spending Quality Time With Holly Bowling
02:08:41

We spend the morning talking with Holly Bowling this week! She took some time out of a well earned break to talk with us about how Ghost Light became a band while hanging out for the very first time, having laser focus inside the jam, being a music nerd, what it means to have some quality down time, climbing the Mt. Everest of transcribing the Tahoe Tweezer jam, and a whole bunch more!

Texture, nuance, and a gift for dexterous high-wire improvisation are the hallmarks of San Francisco-based classically trained pianist Holly Bowling, who infuses jam band music with a technically advanced, emotionally rich style.  After studying piano performance at SF State University, Bowling has turned her agile mind and interpretive prowess to the works of Phish on 2013’s Distillation Of A Dream album and the Grateful Dead focused Better Left Unsung (released December 9, 2016 through The Royal Potato Family).  Her instantly compelling playing and unerring ability to successfully collaborate with other musicians in an impressive array of styles has brought her to the attention of Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Gov’t Mule’s Warren Haynes, and other luminaries who’ve asked Bowling to perform with them.  Already a rising star on the festival circuit, Bowling plans to continue to expand her solo touring, and recently formed a new band Ghost Light with Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen and Scotty Zwang.

For more info on Holly's touring, merch, and music head over to hollybowling.com

Episode 99 - Making Moves With The Moves Collective
01:32:15

Tim and Josh From The Moves Collective hung out with us for a little mid-week session! We shared some soup and smoke and talked about how their collective has transformed from gypsy-americana into what it is today, teaching through making music, the community surrounding jam music, what it means to be a person who decides to give it their all for the vibe, how pizza is Josh's favorite song, and a bunch more!

The Moves Collective are a funk heavy ameridelic jamband based in Ocean Beach, California. They have proven to turn heads by touring hard and sharing clubs, festival stages and amphitheaters all over the country with musical greats like Leftover Salmon, Hot Buttered Rum, Fruition, Midnight North, Melvin Seals and JGB, The Dustbowl Revival, Joe Marcinek Band among many more. Founded back in early 2014, The Moves quickly developed a reputation for timeless songwriting, high energy shows, exciting collaborations and constant touring (hucking). The band strives to remind everyone to 'Move in the Moment' through improvisation; sharing their unique stories, songs and experiences each night with each crowd.

Episode 98 - Shaking It Up With The Shook Twins
01:37:22

Katelyn and Laurie of The Shook Twins are our guests this week on No Simple Road! We talk about finding the muse and beginning their musical career, the grind of the road and traveling with a twin, the strength of The Sacred Feminine in sound, what their goal is through their music, being Witches, bringing joy to people, playing at the Oregon Country Fair and Northwest String Summit, and a whole bunch more!

Everybody in your life will write his or her own chapter in your story. Take a step back, and you’ll see the influence of your loved ones, mentors, and friends in your decisions. Shook Twins refer to these folks in the title of their fourth album, Some Good Lives. Throughout fourteen tracks, the duo—identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals]—pay homage to everyone from a late grandpa and godfather to Bernie Sanders.

Make sure you check out the new album 'Some Good Lives' on iTunes and everywhere you stream or download music!

Nate from the Contemporary Bluegrass Band 'Mile 12' joins the No Simple Road Crew this week! This conversation was a real blast and we got into the similarities of playing music and meditation, humanizing tough topics through songwriting, coming to terms with not always feeling up to playing, the place of the spreadsheet in the life of a touring band, and a whole bunch more!

Although their sound is rooted in traditional bluegrass, Mile Twelve surveys a broader landscape on their newest album, City on a Hill. All five band members bring their own influences and observations into the music, resulting in a project that feels contemporary, thoughtfully crafted, and relevant and we're stoked to bring them to you this week!.

Episode 92 - Growing Up Dead With Cris Jacobs
01:56:20

When Cris Jacobs began dreaming about a follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2016 album Dust to Gold, he realized early on he'd have to do things differently this time around. His life had changed drastically since writing those songs: he'd toured extensively and attracted a legion of new, devoted fans; he'd come off the road into a world, with its divisive rhetoric and troubling headlines, he no longer recognized; and, most importantly, he'd gotten married and had his first child. Things had changed, and Jacobs had, too.

The No Simple Road Crew spends some time talking with Cris about being a Dad, where is music comes from, growing up with Deadhead Parents, his $100 bet with his Dad, playing with Phil Lesh, and so much more!

Episode 89 - Breaking The Barriers With the legendary John Medeski
01:57:09

We had the honor of spending some time with John discussing his evolution in music, what it’s like to create utterly improvisational music in, and for, the moment, music as prayers and the sacred nature of sound, the difference between producing music and playing it, his new album with Mad Skillet, and a whole lot more.

Equally comfortable behind a Steinway grand piano, Hammond organ or any number of vintage keyboards, John Medeski is a highly sought after improviser and band leader whose projects range from work with John Zorn, The Word (Robert Randolph, North Mississippi Allstars), Phil Lesh, Don Was, John Scofield, Coheed & Cambria, Susana Baca, Sean Lennon, Marc Ribot, Irma Thomas, Blind Boys of Alabama, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and many more. Classically trained, Medeski grew up in Ft.Lauderdale, FL where as a teenager he played with Jaco Pastorius before heading north to attend the New England Conservatory. He released his first solo piano record, A Different Time, on Sony’s Okeh Records in 2013, and current projects include a new album in the works with his band MadSkillet (Terrence Higgins, Kirk Joseph, Will Bernard), and HUDSON (a collaboration with Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield & Larry Grenadier), plus a documentary on Medeski Martin & Wood.

Listen to Mad Skillet on iTunes or anywhere you stream or download your tunes!

Episode 87 -Diggin' Deep With Tim Bluhm
01:28:02

We spend some time talking with Tim from The Mother Hips about his new solo album “Sorta Surviving’, the accident and how its affected his music and his life, playing at Terrapin Crossroads, coming to grips with one’s mortality, and a whole lot more. This is one of those conversations that’ll make you think.

Tim Bluhm began his musical journey while studying at Chico State, where he co-founded the now-iconic Mother Hips, a group the San Francisco Chronicle has hailed as “one of the Bay Area’s most beloved live outfits.” Performing at frat parties quickly gave way to club shows, regional touring, and national buzz, and before they’d graduated from school, Bluhm and his bandmates were signed to Rick Rubin’s American Recordings on the strength of their debut album, ‘Back To The Grotto.’ Over the ensuing two-and-a-half decades, Bluhm would release eight more studio albums with the band as they cemented their status as architects of a new breed of California soul and earned a reputation as festival and critical favorites, sharing bills with everyone from Johnny Cash and Wilco to Lucinda Williams and The Black Crowes along the way. Rolling Stone called them “divinely inspired,” while Pitchfork praised their “rootsy mix of 70s rock and power pop," and The New Yorker lauded their ability to “sing it sweet and play it dirty.”

Check out the new single, "Where I Parked My Mind" from Tim's solo album "Sorta Surviving' on Apple Music or anywhere you stream your tunes!

Episode 86 - Digging Up Our Roots With Cannabis Activist David Adam Kasakove
01:57:10

This week’s episode is the product of letting the Freak Flag fly. Cannabis Activist and Psychedelic Warrior David Adam Kasakove joins us to tell his story. We talk about his life growing up with parents who had dropped out, helping to bring Prop. 215 to light in California, the music of The Grateful Dead and its impact on his life, touring with The Band Beyond Description, and a whole ton more! This is one of those times when we collectively realized we were in the presence of one of our Freak Family elders. I know you are all going to really enjoy this conversation…

Instead of going to a website or learning more about this or that we ask that everyone out there take a moment to remember all of those that are still suffering or imprisoned behind the unjust and asinine laws of The War on Drugs and Cannabis Prohibition. This episode is dedicated to them!

Ep 85 - Saving The World With Andy Frasco
02:03:04

Andy Frasco of Andy Frasco & The U.N. and Andy Fraso’s World Saving Podcast joins the No Simple Road Crew on The Porch for a morning filled with laughs, unexpected therapy, and creating connection. We talk candidly about addiction & getting it together, making choices based on what we think we’re supposed to do rather than what we want, Andy’s new album ‘Change Of Pace’, and why we are only just now finding out we should have been friends a long time ago.

Andy Frasco & the U.N.’s performances have been described as a "boisterous blend of harmonic funk and jazzy influences, all topped with boundless energy". Frasco frequently calls additional guest musicians to join his band on stage during sets, as well as fans. Shows are highly improvisational featuring impromptu “battles” between band members, who graciously hop off stage into the crowd to contest their instrumental fortitude against one another in a sporting display of individual musicianship. Frasco's shows are also highly interactive, often stopping the show to speak directly to audience members, as well as invite people in the audience up on stage.

Do yourselves a favor and got to: andyfrasco.com for tour info, news, and merch and then go listen to Andy Frasco’s World Saving Podcast on Apple Podcasts or anywhere podcasts stream.

Guitarist Craig Marshall from Cubensis stops by to talk about his journey into the world of the Grateful Dead and having the music play the band. Since 1987, Los Angeles-based band Cubensis has carried the torch in celebration of one of America’s most beloved touring bands, the Grateful Dead.

Cubensis plays complete shows covering all eras of the Grateful Dead, and no night is ever the same. Cubensis is far more than just your standard cover band as they bring the magic and sounds to those longing for the live vibe that only the Grateful Dead was able to deliver.

This a a heartfelt, sweet, and revealing look at one of the founding members of one of the most celebrated Grateful Dead tribute bands. You're gonna dig it!!!

Episode 80 - Our Coffee Gets Heavy: A Morning On The Porch

This one wasn’t planned. Sometimes in life the most beautiful things come out of events that we had absolutely no idea were going to occur. Stuff get’s real this morning as Alex and Aaron sit down for some early morning coffee and smoke and quickly realize they needed to be recording what they were discussing. Not long after Ryder joins the mix and drops some heavy stuff on them. This is a live therapy session with the No Simple Road Crew, unedited, raw, unfiltered, and real. We hope you dig it.

Episode 64 - Climbing Up The Rabbit Hole with Comedian Shane Mauss
01:18:29

Comedian, Host of the 'Here We Are' Podcast, and psychedelic traveler of time and space Shane Mauss joins the No Simple Road Crew as our guest this week! Shane spent some time with us talking about integrating his myriad psychedelic experiences, some practical advice on how to come down from the mountaintop, who the 'God Of Farts' actually is, and so much more I'd be summarizing all afternoon.

Originally from Wisconsin, Shane Mauss caught his first break when he was awarded ‘Best Stand-Up” at The HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in 2007. This led to his TV debut and first of five appearances on Conan. Since that time, he’s been on Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, Comedy Central 'Presents' and 'This Is Not Happening'. For over a decade he has been headlining shows all over the world.

Shane has also been a guest on podcasts such as You Made It Weird, Marc Maron's WTF, Duncan Trussell’s Family Hour, The Joe Rogan Experience, Never Not Funny, Bertcast, TOFOP, Crabfeast, and Keith and The Girl. He also travels the country interviewing scientists about the meanings of life for his own podcast 'Here We Are'. We are extremely honored and grateful to have him as our guest! I know you're gonna dig this one!

Make sure to check out Shane's website for tour dates, news, and links to 'Here We Are'

Kevin Calabro is the man behind the publicity for so many amazing artists! Marco Benevento, Reed Mathis, Howlin' Rain, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Decker, and Circles Around The Sun.... just to name a few... We hung out and talked about starting his own record label 'Royal Potato Family', the true mission of a Publicist, his journey into finding the groove, and the personal realization of how important this music is to all of us (plus a whole lot more)! This cat is a Soul Brother from the word "Go" and I know you all will really dig hearing from him.

Episode 55 - Neal Casal Takes Us Around The Sun
01:15:43

Continuing our High Sierra Music Festival interviews with the one and only Neal Casal!!! We sit down with this legendary master of the groove and talk about what it's like to create 5 hours of original music on the fly... and then be asked to do it again, walking the line between playing someone's music and doing something new that feels familiar, and a whole lot more.

Circles Around The Sun explore new horizons on the band's upcoming double album, Let It Wander. It's the first new music from the quartet since their acclaimed 2015 debut, Interludes For The Dead.

LET IT WANDER will be available August 17 on CD for $24.98. A limited-edition vinyl version of the double album will be released the same day for $39.98. All of the music will be available via digital download and streaming services.

Guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall (his bandmate in the Chris Robinson Brotherhood), bassist Dan Horne and drummer Mark Levy recorded seven instrumentals for LET IT WANDER earlier this year at Castaway 7 Studios in California.

Originally, Circles Around the Sun (CATS) was only supposed to record some Grateful Dead-influenced instrumentals to be played during the set breaks at the Dead's "Fare Thee Well" concerts. But the response was so positive, and the band was having so much fun making music together, that they all agreed to keep it going.
