Takka Takka began in 2006 as Gabe Levine put together a live band to support his home-recorded demos. Since that time, the band's lineup has changed with nearly each release (3 LPs, 2 EPs), with only Levine and drummer Conrad Doucette lasting through each change. Currently in a compact, efficient trio format with the addition of Craig Montoro (formerly of Volcano, I'm Still Excited! and Sufjan Stevens) on bass, the band's latest release heads further down the minimalist, African-inspired path hinted at on their 2008 release, Migration. In this episode, Travis kicks things off with some directorial advice, makes a plea to Bliss cymbals for sponsorship, and chats with the band about lineup changes, the new record, and the difficulty of making music.
DJRePete’s got the BTR Wednesday debut of the latest albums by Toro Y Moi and Foxygen. Also, tune in for a Kate Nash-inspired set that’s sure to please, tour news down-under with The Presets, and info on a metal-themed cruise ship festival---we wish we were kidding---as the trend of vacation festivals in the Caribbean appear to be here to stay. Hit up the Wednesday mix with DJRePete on BTR!
"I think designers need to be there when the decisions for the first particles are being designed. Not when the fabric is already on the roll, and it's already created, and it already has inherent in it things that can help or not help you." On today's show, I'm joined by fashion designer, artist, professor and innovator Helen Storey. Currently serving as Professor of Fashion and Science at The London College of Fashion, Helen has had an incredible career that began with Valentino in the '80's, led to the development of her own line in the '90s, and now finds her collaborating with chemist Tony Ryan to address problems created by consumer waste, through technologically innovative, elegant solutions. Tune in as Helen talks about her design experiences, the problematic divide between art and science, the creative challenges she faced in designing a collection inspired by embryotic development, and how your jeans can purify the air. Plus, the latest music from Canadian artist Renny Wilson, Philly-based Bleeding Rainbow, Brooklyn's Takka Takka and more. So turn it up and tell your friends - this is one Sew & Tell they don't want to miss!
