This is Hip Face Off: Brian Vs. Molly

morningamp:

Each week interns Tanna Solberg and Zach Swezy go head-to-head in a musical competition where they each bring a track to be judged. In this segment, the tables turned and hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon were put on the chopping block. Molly brought a Los Rakas track and Brian went old/new school with a Billie Holiday/Chaz Bundick remix. The pair also got a personalized and badly photoshopped photo!

M&O on Live From Studio 10 (aired April 2014)

Jamila and Owen of Chicago’s “adventure soul” duo M&O (formerly Milo and Otis) have been cultivating a sound that incorporates elements of brooding R&B with carefully written narratives soaked in heritage, passion and culture. Years of making music together have produced a sound that’s both groovy, warm in production, and socially conscious and poignant in its lyrical content.

One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

Secret Colours on Live From Studio 10 - 4/8

Chicago’s Secret Colours have been generating a national buzz around the release of their 2-part album Positive Distractions and their sound steeped in 60’s psychedelia and 90’s Britpop. With new album and mostly new members, comes a new fresh approach to songwriting but there’s still plenty of reverb on jangly guitar riffs and spacey organ sounding keys to make it one of Secret Colours’ best.

We’re pleased to welcome the band for a live set and conversation about the new album and their new collective.

Tune in Tues. 4/8 at 8 PM CT on 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) or stream at www.vocalo.org/player

Every neighborhood in Chicago is as distinct as the voices it produces. Yet, if we look close enough, we’d be surprised to find the similarities between them. In our on-going #Block2Block series, we explore various neighborhoods and the flourishing cultures within them through the voices of musicians living and creating music in those neighborhoods. In this episode, we hear about Lincoln Park through the eyes and the voice of singer/songwriter David Safran.
