Frogbelly and Symphony is an international band, splitting its time between Sheffield, UK, and Brooklyn, NY. Members Liz and Tom Hanley, Ben Trott, and Ray Rizzo come from a wide variety of musical backgrounds, bringing in a world of influences to their finely executed experimental tunes. The influence of traditional folk music and poetry is evident, but the prog and post-punk vibes can’t be ignored either. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to mesmerize us with some of their swirling jams, and to chat with Maia about the origins of their complex work.
From sushi to traditional Indian dishes–learn the multitude of ways Americans butcher cultural cuisines and food etiquettes from all over the world.
This week’s guests are the curator’s behind one of this year’s buzziest fashion exhibits, The Museum at FIT’s “Global Fashion Capitals.” Ariele Elia and Elizabeth Way organized the exhibit around the history of the four best established fashion cities – Paris, New York, Milan and London – and the emergence of sixteen up-and-coming hubs, including Johannesburg, Shanghai, Mumbai, Lagos, Berlin, Mexico City, and Copenhagen. Join us today to hear Ariele and Liz discuss the organization of the exhibit, some of the challenges facing these cities as their fashion industries grow, how technology has and will continue to facilitate the globalization of fashion as industry, art, and commerce, and more. Plus, a playlist featuring some of my favorite recent tracks from international indie artists, including Iceland’s Lay Low, New Zealand singer-songwriter Liam Finn, and Puerto Rican garage rocker AJ Davila. So come and discover a world of new fashion, here on BTR!
Another not-quite-yet summer Saturday show. Except you wouldn’t know it by the amount of summery songs I have for you on the show today (and the amount of margaritas I’ve been drinking outside lately). Yes, it really feels like it’s summer, and we’re celebrating that on the show today. Check out new tracks from Eternal Summer, Sharon Van Etten, and old favorites from Childish Gambino and White Hinterland!
