Charly Bliss is one of those bands that immediately brings to mind a slew of favorites, especially for those of us who had their musical awakening in the 90s. Reminiscent of the awesomely fuzzy, poppy goodness of Veruca Salt, The Breeders, That Dog, and Letters To Cleo, the band proudly identifies their genre as “bubblegrunge” (was that a word back then? It’s likely, but either way it’s super appropriate for them right here and now) and does a killer job of nailing that vibe and improving upon it, updating the sound and look for the 2010s while still conveying that feeling of throwing a party in your teenage bedroom. Eve, Spencer, Sam, and Dan have a really great thing going on, and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this session. Guppy by Charly Bliss is available now from Barsuk Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Jane Weaver is a musician from Liverpool, England. As someone who runs a record label and plays in several groups, she is certainly no stranger to collaboration, but as a songwriter and performer she’s uniquely autonomous and largely responsible for everything you’ll hear on her solo output — though friends do lend a hand (or instrument) here and there as needed. Jane possesses an otherworldly voice, uniquely suited to her distinctly light yet powerful style which blends perfectly with both the electronics and traditional instruments employed in her songs. She stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn for this intimate look at her music. The Architect EP is available now from Fire Records.
