Episode 739: Hamell On Trial / Christine Albert Checks In!
Hello friends! Anti-folk legend, Hamell On Trial is my guest for episode 739! His latest albums, the layered and timely, Tackle Box produced by Phil "The Butcher" Nicolo on New West Records and the raw and aggressive, The Night Guy At The Apocalypse Profiles Of A Rushing Midnight, recorded entirely on his phone, are both brilliant and available now. He's about to head out on a UK tour next week. Go to hamellontrial.org for tour dates, music and more. Ed was in town last weekend and we had a great conversation about his time in Austin, being the weirdest guy on the major label, navigating the current political atmosphere, composing the music and lyrics for the Columbus, Ohio based Shadowbox Live's play "F#(K Cancer: The Musical" and much more! I had a great time getting to know Ed Hamell. I'm sure you will too. Plus, my old friend, Christine Albert stops by to talk about her non-profit, Swan Songs, that fulfills musical last wishes for those at the end of their lives. They're having their annual celebration, "Swan Songs Serenade" featuring music by Shiny Ribs next Wednesday October 17th at Riverbend Community Center here in Austin. Go to Swansongs.org for tickets and info. Let's get down!
