  • RSP #47 - Physical Beauty and Musical Turmoil with Josh Graham | IIVII | Neurosis | A Storm of Light

    Jul 29 2021
    Josh Graham creates soundscape masterworks. He's one of the most successful audio and visual composers ever, racking up relationships with the most influential musicians and filmmakers in the world. Josh currently resides in the pacific northwest, which gives him a head start on so many simply due to the geography. The world here is lush but complicated, just like his music. When Josh isn't writing the latest soundscape, he's working fiercely to create visual tapestries and tone poems. He's the real deal and it was my honor to host him on my show. Let his music inspire, confuse, and ingratiate you. This is Josh Graham of IIVII on the Rockstar Superhero Podcast.

  • RSP #45 - The Texas Sharpshooter Theory with Jason Blake | Aziola Cry

    Jul 22 2021
    Artists are known far and wide as being unintentional narcissists. To be fair, I include myself in this definition, as I'm a creative as well. When I heard I was going to be interviewing Jason Blake from Aziola Cry, I was worried because I loved the music so much that I feared all I would do is make it clear that if their drummer ever died in a bizarre gardening accident, that I'd be the perfect fit to replace him. Fortunately, Jason laughed that stuff off and kept me on point as an interviewer. The beauty of this particular interview is that we got to talk about all sorts of things that make guys like us tick, yet the conversation stayed attainable enough for the musical newbie to enjoy what Jason and his bandmates have to offer. the new album, the Ironic Divide, is available now and worth every red cent you can throw at it. As you're my faithful listeners, I implore you to purchase it today. The links to the band's social media and record label are included in the notes below. Thanks for letting me ramble a little extra today and please enjoy my chat with the master of the Warr Guitar, Jason Blake of Aziola Cry, on the Rockstar Superhero Podcast. Time Codes: 1:50 Why did it take so long to release the music? 3:00 Personal lives and promotion 7:25 Playing the WARR guitar and the esoteric nature 8:00 Piano, Bass, and the move away from jazz 12:45 The personality of a curious musician 17:15 Wanting the music for yourself 21:00 Listening to soundtracks and the character of music 26:00 Danny Elfman and Clint Mansell and the modern soundtrack 33:00 Finding a unique voice in an overwrought landscape 37:50 Ghost Conversations and the singular sound 42:40 Abandoning catchy hooks 47:00 Stu Hamm and the power of tone 51:00 Goofy titles don't really mean much to Jason 56:00 The Texas Sharpshooter Theory 1:01:00 Malleability and suiting the moment 1:05:30 The introspective grapple 1:10:00 The critical and fan reception 1:13:40 The feeling of being blown away 1:18:00 The things we wish we could take back 1:22:00 Things seem to go Jason's way Where to get the new album, along with all the links that matter https://www.aziolacry.com https://www.instagram.com/aziolacry https://www.facebook.com/aziolacrymusic https://twitter.com/aziolacry http://www.lasersedgegroup.com https://lasersedge.bandcamp.com http://www.facebook.com/TheLasersEdge http://www.twitter.com/thelasersedge Subscribe to both shows here: https://bit.ly/3airCvh Wanna be on the show?
