The New Restaurants is a Brooklyn-based band led by longtime friends Beau Alessi and Doug Schrashun, two veterans of the NYC/Brooklyn music scene — perhaps best known for their involvement in MiniBoone and Robot Princess. With a new website (as opposed to an album) available now on Bandcamp and soon at forgetabout.institute, the duo talk about their history together (which includes writing NBA All Star Jams eleven years running) as well as their unique way of writing music for this latest project. Also in the episode, we have music by c’yotes, Metz, and Deerhoof.
