EPISODE 66: ITSTHEREAL

Eric and Jeff Rosenthal are brothers that have been creating hip hop sketch comedy as ItsTheReal for nearly a decade.  Simply put: they crack me up.  Their loving homages to the culture — via parody rap songs, inane and irreverant interviews (that keep the artists laughing as hard as the audience),  journalism, or sketches — always have a fresh and funny take on what’s happening in rap music.  Their able to laugh with the culture and not at it.  Make sure to check out their mixtape Urbane Outfitters (I call it by the wrong name in the intro, my bad) and visit their site for hours of great content.  We talk about holding back vomit while interviewing Jay-Z, cosigns from Maino and Bun B, and throwing up the Roc in a glass elevator for all to see.

EPISODE 65: CONRAD LOEBL

Show booking can be a tiring and thankless job.  Thankfully we have folks like Conrad Loebl behind the scenes putting together the shows we love to attend.  Working as the booker for IHEARTCOMIX for the last 2 years, he’s been responsible for curating some of the most forward thinking and “up on shit” lineups that LA has to offer at venues like the Echoplex, Los Globos, and the El Rey.  Love episodes where folks aren’t necessarily full time musicians, but are still heavily involved in music and this is one of those episodes.  Hear about how Conrad started throwing shows as a teenager, being straight edge for 10 years, and why it pays to just be a good guy.

EPISODE 64: NOVA ROCKAFELLER

This week we sat down with Canadian ex-pat / Los Angeles transplant Nova Rockafeller.  Been paying attention to her music for quite sometime and was inspired to get her on the show after finding out she’s been working with friend of the show Dj Nobody.  We talk to her about her chaotic youth, her rebellious nature, and perpetually running away.

EPISODE 63: TV GIRL

A few weeks ago Brad Petering (the man behind TV Girl) put out an album by surprise.  French Exit entered our world via a solitary tweet and sometimes, when the music is that good, that’s all an album needs.  We talk to Brad about how the group has changed since we last spoke in ’11 (Trung has amicably parted ways with the group), his experiment with skipping all the PR bullshit for this record, and his stint as a stand up comedian.

Fresh of the release of “Jimmy The Burnout” we had my buddy James return to the show to talk about trying to juggle family life and music / business life, figuring out other ways to succeed with rap, and our perpetual argument over whether or not the numbers matter.

EPISODE 61: ANTWON

Sorry about the hiatus guys!  We’re back with a great convo with Antwon.  Noticed Twon exploding onto the scene a couple years ago and, though we run in the same circles, I knew next to nothing about his backstory.  Fresh off a move to Los Angeles with his project Heavy Hearted in Doldrums getting great reviews, he opens up about growing up an only child in a single parent home, his history playing in bands, and serving 6 months in jail.
