  • Interview with Boreal Sons


    Recently, I (Rupert Hudson, WUSC Music Director) interviewed Evan Acheson, the lead singer and piano player of Calgary, Canada-based band Boreal Sons. He was a lovely man and we chatted about haters, their new album, and maple syrup (not sure if we actually talked about that but it was implied).

     

    I’m very exciting to be interviewing you today. Especially because of the beautiful connection we have through your guitarist Logan (I went to high school with him). How did you meet him?

    Yeah, we call him the ruggedly handsome one. I met him a while ago through some friends. We went to the same live music events in Calgary. I think I’d met him very briefly and I was driving in rush hour traffic one day. I looked over and he was the car right where I wanted to be in traffic. We kind of had this silent moment and with motioning charades I said “would I be able to sneak in front of you there?” Of course, he waved me him. That’s why I let him in the band. I owed it to him.

    Who else do you have in your band and how did you meet them?

    Well, I play the piano and sing, and Logan has the guitars covered. Zack is on percussion and I have known him my whole life. Our parents were friends. And finally, Reagan is the bass player and I met him through an organization called Young Life.

    Tell me a bit about your childhood.

    Well, I was homeschooled, which was interesting. Actually, I thought that I had a very normal childhood. My mom was a teacher and she taught my three little brothers and me. The four of us were very good buddies growing up and I had lots of friends in the neighbourhood with whom I would go build tree forts in the woods and ride our bikes.

    Are you on tour right now?

    We are in the middle of a long tour right now but we have a few days off in Calgary. We toured the west coast of Canada and we got to play a bunch of really fun shows out in the Vancouver/Victoria area and also in the mountains. We’re getting ready to head east now. We haven’t really played anywhere on the eastern side of the continent so we are going to be doing a lot of driving in the next few days. We are so excited for new adventures and new sights. Our mechanic just put new tires on our van and he assures us everything will be a-ok for our massive trek.

    Have you had trouble with your van before?

    Well, we had an old tour van that was a lot of maintenance and trouble. In the end, it burst into flames on the highway. I called our mechanic and described to him what our engine looked like and he said “I think that’s probably all she’s got in her.” Zack, Reagan and I had been at a wedding and Logan was visiting friends in another part of Vancouver and we called him. Like a knight in shining armor, he borrowed a large van in Vancouver and drove 3 or 4 hours to come pick us up.

    Your new album Threadbare was just released, how does that feel?

    It’s great. It’s our first full-length album. We’ve had a couple of EPs previously but this is our first album where we sat down and strategically planned it out. We worked with an awesome producer and made our greatest effort and best product to date.

    What has the reaction in Canada been like? Have certain cities asked you to come play there because of this album or did you plan it out?

    Well, it was mostly us, but we have been getting a lot of media coverage. We’ve been working with some people to help us with publicity and they have been a huge help. We have got a few blog articles and album reviews about Threadbare. Everyone has been extremely supportive.

    Well, we have loved your album on WUSC. I think you were #5 on our charts this week.

    Holy smokes! I’ve never even been to South Carolina.

    You’ve got to come here! Anyways, do you have any good stories that come from your most recent tour?

    There was this cool bar we played at in Victoria, BC called The Copper Owl. It was a bizarre experience. The venue used to be a gay bar but now hipsters have claimed it. It’s like, a guy sits down with a PBR, another guy sits down with a fancy cocktail and they can hit it off. They can be best buds. It was quite small but made for a really intimate show. There was torrential downpour that night and crazy amounts of wind. I think it was a special moment as people sought shelter from the storm and huddled around.

    Are you going anywhere in the next month and a half that you haven’t been?

    I think I’m most excited to go to the east coast of Canada because I’ve never been there at all. Not even on a family vacation. I’m looking forward to seeing the beautiful landscape. I’ve heard there are lots of rocky cliffs near the sea and that the people are really lovely. We’re travelling through Quebec as well, and I’ve never been there either.

    I see you’re playing at a place called Burritoville in Montreal.

    I’ve heard from sources that is a beautiful old building, which should be fun. I’ve also heard that they have great Mexican food.

    Have you had to deal with haters at all with your band?

    No, not really. Oh wait, today we got a 2/5 star review. But you know, you’re going to get that so whatever. It is interesting though. I think having people give their honest opinions and poor reviews is not a bad thing altogether. It at least gives us a gauge for how many people are actually hearing it now. I mean, we’re not out there to win everybody over. It was such an awesome experience just to make this album and express ourselves genuinely and honestly. We can only improve from here so we are open to hearing honest criticism.

    What is your personal favorite song to play live from the album?

    Oh, good question. I think it would be Sparks, which is track 2 on the album. It’s a bit more groovy than some of our previous stuff. We’ve been playing a real Fender Rhodes keyboard on tour and the sound of it mixed with the drums, the whole band playing together and the movement of the chord changes is a lot of fun. Also, the song Coward has a bit of gnarly, staticky guitar solo on the recording but live we have been having a lot of fun trying to make it loud and crazy. Some of our fans who have been listening to our softer, quieter stuff will hopefully be surprised in a pleasant way by how these songs sound.

    Thank you so much Evan for doing this interview.

    Thank you! I hope to see you in Canada sometime soon.

    Percent Night at Mellow Mushroom!

    In the year 1729, shortly after the WUSC radio tower was erected on top of Columbia Hall, the colony of Carolina split into two independent colonies: North and South Carolina. South Carolina quickly became a beacon of civilization in the New World, prospering heavily from the fertility of the Low Country, its multitude of coastal harbors, and the several local pizza joints where farmers, laborers, and local DJs would retire after a hard days work to split a pizza and have a few brews. We here at WUSC appreciate the impact pizza had in the building of this great state, and that’s why on Monday, March 25th, we’re teaming up with Mellow Mushroom for Percent Night. All you have to do is show up, buy some food, and make sure to tell ’em WUSC sent ya, and a percentage of the profits from your meal will go directly toward funding the station that you know and love. It’s easy, patriotic, and gets you a belly full of delicious pizza.

    Mellow Mushroom is located at 1009 Gervais Street, Columbia SC 29201 in the Vista. For more information and a full menu, visit their website at http://mellowmushroom.com/store/columbia. Your station thanks you.

    • Wednesday, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

  • mtvU Woodie Nominations: Best College Radio Station 2013

    A wise man named Andy Dufresne once said, “…if you’ve come this far, maybe you’re willing to come a little further.” Well, MTVU is hosting their annual Woodie Awards and we’re counting on you to help WUSC make the cut, win that cut, and then cut the rest of the competition into little pieces and consume them in front of their loved ones. Go to http://blog.ratemyprofessors.com/mtvu-woodie-nominations-best-college-radio-station/ and fill out your name, email, and type “WUSC” in the nomination box. Then tell your friends, family, loved ones, pets, mistresses, that weird guy who drinks milk in front of the gas station, President Obama, ANYONE with an email address, to go and vote for WUSC.

    We’ve been on the airwaves in some shape or form since 1946 (that’s 66 years) but we never could have made it this far without your love and support. YOU are what drives WUSC and its DJs to do what we do every day. And we are eternally grateful. Now we’re asking you to come a little further with us. Help us to be recognized as the best.

    Sincerely,
    The WUSC Staff and DJ Body

  • Carnaval, Netherfriends, and Senseless Beings

    Come see CarnavalNetherfriends, and Senseless Beatings Thursday, October 4th, at Conundrum Music Hall.

     

    Doors open at 7:00 PM, music starts at 8:00 PM.

    Price of admission: $5

     

    Carnaval is a methodical and point-driven wordless quartet from Charleston.

    Essentially the rotating project of indie pop adventurer Shawn Rosenblatt and friends, Netherfriends plays an ethereal brand of rock, layering Rosenblatt’s Beach Boys-esque coos over shimmering lo-fi keyboards, tribal drums, and anything else lying around the studio. Netherfriends began to make its name in Rosenblatt’s hometown of Chicago in 2007, as he gathered a vast network of acquaintances together to create entrancing sounds. While multi-instrumentalist Justin Fernando is a regular collaborator, when Netherfriends tours, it’s generally a solo endeavor. After a pair of self-released singles, the act signed to Emergency Umbrella Records, releasing the EP Calling You Out in 2009. The following year, Rosenblatt embarked upon the nomad’s life as he pulled up stakes from his Chicago home and took to the road with the plan to play gigs in all 50 states. ~Jason Thurston, Rovi

    Weaving together ephemeral semblances of meaning and vainly groping at values, Senseless Beatings is a musical project(ion) of people with no place to go. In spite of recognizing the vanity of their hopes (being-for-other-that-is-being-for-self), they wander about feverishly writing music that never quite satisfies their desires.

    It’s only $5 for over 21 and $7 for under. If we raise more than enough to go to the musicians, the rest will benefit the station for fundraising purposes! A great way to show support is to come out to our show, and enjoy top-notch local music with us. We dont bite!

  • WUSC SPRING FUNDRAISER

    We’re closing in on it quickly! It’s 2012 folks, so WUSC won’t be holding back at all. We’re looking to do this fundraiser as big as we’ve ever done in recent years because the world as we know it could fall apart any moment. We’ll be playing 24 hours of our DJ’s favorites, so we’ll post a schedule of that content up soon! Click our banner to see the posters for our events series!

  • WUSC Presents: Elvis Depressedly, Cameron Gardner Trio, Dear Blanca, Paleface, and Dylan & Dayne

    The WUSC Music Office has put together another kick ass show at Conundrum Music Hall on Friday, March 16.

    Featuring…

    Elvis Depressedly
    … Cameron Gardner Trio
    Dear Blanca
    Paleface
    Dylan & Dayne

    $5 for 21+/ $7 under 21
    show starts at 8!

    Dylan & Dayne Lee are just wonderful song writers, an heart meltingly classic folky dueling vocals act. Simply gorgeous and a real rarity to catch in Columbia. They stole our hearts years ago and we are lucky enough to convince them to join the show! http://www.myspace.com/dylananddayne

    Dear Blanca is Dylan Dickerson’s newest project consisting of Evan SImmons from Magnetic Flowers on bass, Marc Coty of Old Canoe on drums, Damien Herring from Horrendous and Eddie Newman from Ape Bastard in the horn section. It is a much more atmospheric experience than Dylan’s solo act but boy is it pretty. It’s exciting to hear this jubilee of Columbia musical genius in one act. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dear-Blanca/342880552390562

    Paleface is our forever touring band that we at WUSC adore and are pleased to bring back to our city. Paleface composes folk music in earnest, with a bluesy vocal delivery that portrays a feeling of something genuine and well-intentioned. http://palefaceonline.com/

    Cameron Garner Trio is one of Columbia’s music scene’s treasures and veterans. Consisting of members of Heist and the Accomplice and more, these guys are brilliant song writers and musicians. They put a whole new edge on bluesy epic rock.

    Elvis Depressedly (also known as Coma Cinema) is one of Columbia’s coveted acts. A brilliant fuse of bedroom pop and drone. A really amazing act to close up our show! http://elvisdepressedly.bandcamp.com/
