Donovan Wolfington is apparently a person. He's out there somewhere, but that's a story for another day... This is about the band from New Orleans who borrowed his name: four guys making poppy punk rock, with some heavy parts and some happy parts and some sad parts. They didn't name their album How to Treat the Ones You Love by happenstance. It serves as an exploration of their own lives' difficulties and lessons, and an honest, literate way to attempt to be a slightly less terrible person in a not-always-so-great world.
Although Lena Fayre is a young artist, she's already released an EP and two LPs, as well as had her music included in the hit tv show The Vampire Diaries. Where does that leave the 19-year-old Los Angeles-based indie pop singer? Looking towards the future, following her album full of post-relationship melancholy and beautiful songs. Her style is really about as flawless as it gets, with perfectly composed and arranged tunes to back up every bit of the hype. She stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to play a few, and to share the story behind her album's concept and cover art. Lena Fayre’s latest album, Is There Only One?, is available now.

Des Ark is the name of Aimée Argote's long-running musical project. Based in North Carolina, the band has taken many forms, but has always been guided by the focused and hauntingly beautiful words and music of Argote, from hushed tones to roaring rockers. Des Ark stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to play some of their latest songs -- which happened to have some of the most colorful titles we've seen in a while -- and to chat with Maia about where the music comes from and how it's heard.
Liz Vice is a musician from Portland, Oregon. With a soulful voice and love of storytelling, her jazz-tinged tunes are infused with a spirituality and warmth that recalls classic gospel. Liz stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO on a recent visit to NYC to play some music and chat with Maia.
On today's show we have an all new session from Frogbelly and Symphony!
