#110 - MYLO BYBEE Interview

Treasure Valley Podcast

#121 - Treasure Valley Live - Parade of Bad Guys
It’s time for a stiff glass of bottom shelf whiskey and a pack of Marlboro Reds. Parade of Bad Guys came to the studio for a set of their drunken Americana. Moored by Ben Breiding’s baritone, the band evokes the precise moment when a party might be going on too long - when everything becomes either monumentally fun or horrifyingly miserable. These five songs run the gamut from sneaky sentimentality (“Panhandle”) to palpable anger (“Run Away My Darling”), all while acting as a showcase for Tyler McFarlane (Electric Guitar), Andrew Keck (Bass), and Alan Schwaderer (Piano). Enjoy!

#119 - Real Estate: "It's still okay to buy a home!" with Austin Whiting
What is up with the skyrocketing real estate prices here in the Treasure Valley? Are we in a bubble? Should you wait before you buy a new home?

He helps shed some light on why real estate prices have shot up so quickly and what we all can do to avoid large corporations from taking over local land development.

#118 - Treasure Valley Live - St. Terrible
In preparation for their 2021 Treefort performance, St. Terrible accepted our invitation to LowerGentry Studios. We first became aware of the band earlier this year when they released An Endless Fiction, an EP that gobsmacked us with its sonic experimentation, formal unity, and lyrical introspection. Their music contains shades of our favorite mid-2000s indie rock releases. It has the earnestness. The musical dexterity. But, there is something wholly original in the way St. Terrible attacks each song’s dynamics. Across this 4 track set, they consistently retire from one deafening high only to ascend to another. Each crescendo is unexpected and invigorating; watching Zach Herbert (vocals, guitar), Sean Dahlman (piano), and Aaron Atkins (drums) traverse these emotional peaks reminds us why we love live music. Enjoy!

August 24, 2021
#113 - Treasure Valley Live - Jesse Blake Rundle
The Music of Jesse Blake Rundle was one of our favorite discoveries of 2020. His album, Radishes and Flowers, was released during the height of the Covid lockdown - when there was nothing else to do but continually refresh the news feed on our phones - and the relief it brought made us reidentify with an optimism in humanity. Jesse's tunes can be propulsive. They can be languid. They can be formally adventurous while still carrying enough folk and rock tradition to be immediately understood. It was a thrill to have him in the studio! Here he is joined by Nate Agenbroad for a set of three new songs and the title track of last year's sterling release. Enjoy!

Addam was finally able to return to the studio this summer to record a set in the way audiences see him most frequently, as a solo artist with only his electric guitar to back up his vocals. In this edition of Treasure Valley Live Addam shows his remarkable musical skill, a result years of experience and countless hours of performing.

July 13, 2021
#109 - Treasure Valley Live - MYLO BYBEE
For this episode of Treasure Valley Live, we hosted MYLO BYBEE in our studio. They were great. Sonically, the band occupies a territory that is at once nostalgic and unfamiliar - an evolution of 90s era alternative rock with a husk of 21st century pessimism. Formed directly before the pandemic, they play a selection of songs from their 2021 EP and their recently released singles. Watch the video here:

#107 - Treasure Valley Live - Jake Freeman
For June’s episode of Treasure Valley Live, Jake Freeman performed a short set in the studio. Delicate and immediate, Freeman’s songs reflect the most durable parts of the folk music tradition. Joined by Noble Holt on the lead guitar, this duo creates a sonic universe between their two amps - one that holds a mirror to our shared human experience and trembling inner desires.

May 18, 2021
#104 Treasure Valley Live - Ryan Curtis
It's been over a year since we've had any musicians in the studio, and for our first Treasure Valley Live post-pandemic, we wanted the perfect artist - one that would articulate the waste and isolation of the previous year while giving us something to sway our hips to. Enter Ryan Curtis. His brand of boozy Americana made us pine for long ago nights smoking and drinking at dive bars. Buoyed by Sam Alkire's steadfast bass and Dave Manion's casually brilliant guitar work, Curtis's tunes offer catchy hooks, light rhythms, and an unmistakable, almost unspoken, melancholy. Lyrically, his songs oscillate between folksy aphorisms ("Talk a Little Less") and stunning depictions of economic need ("Pour Another Glass"). The people in his songs are lost and confused, and although there are no simple cures for poverty, alcoholism, and the general self-hatred Curtis imbues with each syllable of his gravelly voice, another pint will do for now.
