Wistful, sensitive, and with a touch of nostalgia – Eleanor Friedberger has built a strong solo career that speaks to her roots as an artist. Raised in a musical household in Oak Park IL, Eleanor started the band The Fiery Furnaces with her brother Matthew Friedberger in the early 2000’s. The band came to popularity after the release of their album “The Blueberry Boat” with music that was quirky and deconstructed. The band went on hiatus after 2011 after which Eleanor started her solo career.

While The Fiery Furnaces had a special strangeness to their sound, Eleanor’s solo music is Folk inspired and Classic Rock rooted with elements of her avant-garde alternative past integrated in. Eleanor released her fourth solo album, “Rebound,” May 4th to the critical acclaim of Pitchfork, The Guardian, and many other publications. She played in Austin at 3TEN ACL Live this Wednesday as part of her world tour. You can buy/listen to “Rebound” here.

Eight-piece art-pop group Superorganism has come a long way since being the internet’s biggest mystery just a year ago. After they dropped their first single “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” back in February of 2017, the entire web found itself down rabbit holes trying to uncover who they were. It wasn’t until seven months later that members, Harry, Emily, and Orono, met together at a café in London to debunk some of the rumors. As it turns out, no, Orono is not a hologram, but a 17 year old *living human* from Japan. It also turns out that Superorganism is not a Gorillaz side project, but the result of longtime internet friendships. In fact, its members come from all across the globe: England, New Zealand, South Korea, and Japan. No wonder their music has such a refreshingly playful and genre-bending sound.

Take a peek at our full session and interview below!

Americana band Western Youth first formed in 2011, when singer/songwriters Taylor Williams and Matthew Gregg began writing songs together in Austin. They were joined shortly after by drummer Brian Bowe and the trio released their first EP “Leaving the Station” in 2013. Since then, they’ve been regulars on the Austin club circuit leading to an unofficial show at South by Southwest in an eclectic backyard venue, where they met local singer/songwriter favorite Graham Weber. In 2017, Weber asked the guys to back him up on an EP he was recording. Weber soon after joined the band, which now includes Sam Powell on keys and bassist Sean Spiller.

Frontman Taylor Williams writes songs that strike squarely at the intersection of tuneful country and soulful rock ’n’ roll. Their music is both robust and rustic with a special swagger to it. Western Youth won a spot in the official 2018 SXSW lineup, earning the band some much-deserved recognition and attention and setting the stage for the release of the band’s first full-length, self-titled is out September 21st with a release show at Spiderhouse Ballroom that evening.

Memory is the full force driving the idea behind folk-punk Columbus band Saintseneca’s newest album release, Pillar of Na. You may have already guessed it from the title… yes this is a direct reference to the Genesis story of Lot’s wife. Frontman Zac Little approaches this classic tale with a refreshing take on what it means to “look back”. If you are familiar with the bible story, you will recall that God sends angels to warn Lot and his family to flee the wicked city of Sodom before he lets it burn and perish completely. He also tells them not to look back. Lot’s wife is the only one who can’t help but take one last look, and as a result is turned into a pillar of salt. Little begs the question: is it not necessary to look back from where you came from in order to make sense of it? In a time where we always hear the phrase “never look back”, Little picks apart the value behind revisiting and re-examining the past from both a collective and more personal lens. Saintseneca stopped by Studio 1A to share this message, so check it out below!

California native Matt Costa uncovers a storytelling side in his newest release, Santa Rosa Fangs. This full-length album tells the coming of age story of a young woman named Sharon and her two brothers Ritchie and Tony as they encounter themes of tragic loss, long distance love affairs, and nostalgic romances; however, not all of the pieces to the story are necessarily fictional, Costa reveals. Check out how this concept album was approached in our full session and interview below!
