the blind shake
In this episode we look to the different research that opens our minds to the true balance we strike within our biological selves, even down to the DNA sequence itself.
It'’s been hot in the city. Ridiculously hot. I live in this city to avoid the heat other cites get. Well, that and the food of course. Anyway, when the mercury gets to 90 in San Francisco which is just insane to even imagine if you’ve ever spent more than an hour here during the summer, I always seek something a bit colder than the outside air temperature. Ramen is right out so I move onto something in the dessert spectrum which some people may not know to much about. Of course I’m talking about ice cream. Like everything else here we have peeps who make it right. Bi-Rite is doing it right, as evidenced by the long lines they attract. Humphrey Slocombe is so good someone started a parody twitter account. But let’s not dawdle on those two ice cream giants. Instead, let’s get Taiwanese on it. More specifically, due huabing or shaved snow if you don’t want to butcher the name. This stuff is amazing, and weird rolled into onw. Like sweet green beans on your ice cream, then shaved snow is for you. Hanabi also went to check out some cajun cooking, specifically frog legs at Roux. He also has a little recipe for you too for some quick ginger ground pork and cabbage too. Kale and apricots? Ask Insane Dane about that one. More specifically the kale apricot smoothie.

On this episode of BTR Side Tracks we present a previously unseen performance from Minneapolis-based trio The Blind Shake. They perform the full version of their song “Old Lake, ” from their recent Goner Records release Breakfast Of Failures, not seen in their session for BTR Live Studio.
The Blind Shake performs live in our studios in Brooklyn, NY!
The Blind Shake is a Minneapolis-based trio fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha, with their friend Dave Roper on drums. Intense, uniform-clad, and seemingly from another time or world, the Blind Shake blasts out tight, catchy, surfy punk tunes. In addition to their own growing catalog of releases, the band has collaborated with the likes of psych legend Michael Yonkers and surf "Swami" John Reis. The guys stopped by Saltlands Studio to crank it out just for you in this session.
