Lissie chats with me over a drink in the backyard of Muldoon's Irish Pub in Midtown Manhattan. Originally hailing from Rock Island, IL, she explains how she received an early confidence boost from G. Love, which inspired her to move out to California to pursue her music career.  She recently bought a farm in Iowa, but her latest album, My Wild West, focuses on her times back in the Golden State.  Lisse reveals that she views songwriting as a form of therapy, and how this LP represents a shift away from her typical song fodder, romantic relationships.

All five members of Philadelphia's haze-pop band Cheerleader have a drink with me in the basement of Mercury Lounge in Manhattan before they go onstage.  They explain why playing the late show feels like a graduation of sorts, and how radio has been quite beneficial to them even in today's streaming industry.  The guys tell me why it's okay to listen year-round to their summery debut LP, The Sunshine of Your Youth, and share their feelings on the record a year after its release.

Brian Bonz has an IPA with me in the downstairs bar at Bowery Ballroom before opening for Nightmare of You.  Bonz explains how being an opener provides him with a priceless connection to new fans, which proved especially helpful when it came to crowd-funding his latest LP, Misophonia.  Although the title refers to a hatred of certain sounds, Brian reveals why he didn't mind the intrusion of construction noises during the recording process.
