Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! This week on the show I’m featuring the New Jersey-based instrumental rock collective Vasudeva. These four guys have been best friends for years, and their chemistry has culminated in the release of their debut album Life in Cycles. It’s like stargazing with guitars while the constellations keep the beat.

I got a chance to talk with guitar player and songwriter Corey Mastrangelo about his experiences playing in the band. We riff on genre conformity, language barriers, songwriting, DIY recording, European audiences, and, well… riffing. Don’t let me fill in all the blanks for you. Do yourself a favor and check these guys out, they don’t disappoint.

Don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Vasudeva!
