The Mechula on Listening Lyrics, recorded live on Mar 30th, 2018

The Mechula is a jazz trio out of Sacramento, California. They are always searching and experimenting as a post-bop jazz quartet for new ways to interpret the genre, and aim to create music that is interesting and meaningful.

Jackson Riley - Saxophone,  Nick Bretz - Keyboards

Peter Bell - Drums,  Andrew Mearns - Bass

 

Check out "Low Strung" on Listening Lyrics last week!

Doug Kelly stood in for Pieter today to host Low Strung.    Somehow all of these wonderful Yale students fit in our TV studio for a video recording and a live radio broadcast.

Listen above to hear the chaos- special thanks to Live Tracks host Jim Buchanan, Bryce Parker for the video, and our own Preacher for helping with camera.    It takes a village sometimes!    

Special thanks to KDRT operations memeber Diane Crumley for the photo and ushering the group through our space.   And, yes, those are all Cello cases in our video editing area....

The Five Thirty visits Listening Lyrics, recorded on Mar 9th, 2018

After rocking their homecoming dance in 2015, The Five Thirty - the name taken from the band's childhood area code - began concocting their diverse style, reminiscent of classic rock, pop and funk in a Heat Stroke inducing loft in Davis, California. The band owes their genre bending capability to a myriad of artists not limited to Red Hot Chili Peppers, Zeppelin, and Paramore. The powerful trio fronted by Ben Simmons (Vocals/Guitar) and joined by brother Brian Simmons (Drums) and Alex Timmons (Bass) all grew up in similar music circles, performing shows from a young age with their own separate groups at RockBand University. Ben began producing music professionally at fourteen and met Alex during a recording session. He has a strong musical gut coupled by a facility of the fretboard, and brings his experience with being a singer-songwriter to the band platform.

David Jacobin Discusses Music and Activism. Recorded on Mar 2nd, 2018

Listening Lyrics had the oppurtunity to talk with someone about changing aspects of the world we live in. For you see this guest not only talks but he walks the talk.  David Jacobin uses his unique brand of Resistance Rock music to support social causes in the community, and promote the change he wishes to see in the world. In addition to not only hearing him play some tunes David will talk about a project he is deeply involved with. The Yisrael Family Farm. Their logo says it all "Our mission is to transform the hood for G.O.O.D. using urban agriculture as a tool for community engagement, empowerment and employment."

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
