Day 3
Here are some Daytrotterly items…
one is an article for the Iowa

For that, I interviewed singer-songwriter-artist Caleb Engstrom,
after his recording session with D/T in January, 2008.

I taped another Iowa City-connected musical act, Skursula.
They played an outdoor show in summer ’07.

All are part of the 2-year-old Quad City-phenom music site known as Daytrotter.

In 2007, I followed the ‘trotter down to Austin, TX
for their marathon recording spree (over 20 bands) @ Big Orange Studios.

Big O rain geThe Big Orange is Sound Team‘s space in a re-converted record factory in Austin.

It rained for a few hours, almost ruining some sessions.

But after one of several breaks, a bit of impeccably-timed thunder became near-perfect punctuation to a post-apocalyptic song by Red Hunter (as Peter and the Wolf).

He played a 2-stringed Tuvan igil. Click here for a music video of Hunter/Wolf’s “The Fall (Tuvan Igil version)”.

Here’s an interview with the creator of Daytrotter, Sean Moller:

Do you hear something? It’s ‘God Talking’ on the campaign trail Love Conquers All: God, Politics and Rock ‘n’ Roll Bloggers Tara and Jeff are not “strange bedfellows.” They’re actually quite nice.
