Trump slinks away as his impeachment trial looms. Biden hits the ground runnings with executive orders and a pandemic plan. Plus music by The Electric Grandmother and Comfy.
Comfy is the super endearing, earworm-inducing project of Rochester-based musician Connor Benincasa. Joined by a virtual army of musical friends and co-conspirators, the “band” crafts a malleable array of genres from pure power pop to bedroom grooves and indie garage bangers. Here, I chat with Connor about the project and we've got a low-key, ultra-cozy exclusive performance (joined by Aurora Case). Volume For is available now from Dadstache Records.
