Jamie Frey, band-leader of Brooklyn’s NO ICE, has been gigging around New York City for his entire life and so staying at home doesn’t really come naturally for him. Prior to New York’s shutdown, Frey was putting the finishing touches on the group’s second full-length album called All Night—a much poppier affair than the group’s earlier releases. Of course, like so much else in the city, the release is on hold for the time being. In this episode Frey speaks with host Jeanette D. Moses about his coping mechanisms during quarantine, his hopes for whatever comes next, and shares solo versions of three songs from the next album.
The intro and outro music for this episode is “ASMR” by Jamie Frey.
