Tech geek, Harvard grad and Big Data mastermind, Alan Wilkis calls to share his passion for parlaying paranoia and conspiracy theories into sick indie-pop jams with fattest snares imaginable. That’s right SONiC Girls; he’s the whole package.
Singer/songwriter Jeremy Fisher stopped by SONiC Booster Juice Listener Lounge to talk about his new record Lemon Squeeze and tell us how he managed to get Serena Ryder to guest on his latest single, Uh-Oh. HINT: It’s wasn’t his fantastic head of hair (although, that probably didn’t hurt). Stream the session here or catch it in this week’s Layne Mitchell Show Podcast.
As the band’s name alluded, they weren’t going to be around forever, but what started off as fun pastime quickly became a full-time gig spanning more than 10 years. Ten Second Epic was one the first SONiC Bands of The Month and tonight through Saturday they’re playing their final shows ever. See this Edmonton music institution while you can. Thank you for being first class all the way. Seriously guys, thank you. Andrew and Daniel stopped by the studio to chat about their farewell shows and to perform for us acoustically one last time.
Dylan and Connor from Half Moon Run stopped by before opening for City & Colour at Rexall Place to talk new music, arena tours and stupid injuries. Stream the interview here along with an encore presentation of Call Me In The Afternoon – SONiC Session style.
