It hardly seems fair to have to wait more than two years between a Nick Pope release. But here we are…and the wait was well worth it. The singer-songwriter is not only back with a new album, Wowed Me Out, he's returning to Talk Music Talk for his second visit. Overflowing with melodies, Wowed Me Out was partly inspired by childhood nostalgia and features interludes from Nick’s family home videos from the 90s. [This episode features “Turned Ten” and “Holyoke” from Wowed Me Out in their entirety.] Purchase Nick Pope’s Wowed Me Out plus his other music on Bandcamp:...

Talk Music Talk with boice

On this prelude to a very special 200th episode, boice collects three of his favorite past episodes with music photographer Mel D. Cole and musicians Half Waif and Rue Snider. Episode 026: To label Mel D. Cole a music photographer seems too thin a description. Yes, he was dubbed as one of Complex magazine's 50 Greatest Music Photographers. Yes, he's the "house photographer" of The Roots crew and Questlove hailed him as his favorite contemporary photographer. And of course, his exquisite black and white photos perfectly capture the performances of artists like Lauryn Hill, Nas and Common....

Expanded reissues of two classics: Keep Your Eyes Open featuring the Fugazi photographs and DogTown: The Legend of the Z-Boys (with C.R. Stecyk III) about the West Los Angeles skateboard scene from 1975-1985. Both titles are available from Akashic Books.

Talk Music Talk with boice

When Benny Benack III decided to pursue both singing and playing the trumpet, it meant jazz fans got the best of both worlds. Equally exciting at both, Benny hails from a musical Pittsburgh family. He's currently based in Harlem and is prepping the release of his sophomore album, A Lot of Livin’ to Do, coming January 2020. Livin’ is a mix of standards and Benny- originals that gets a seal of approval from Isaac Mizrahi, who scribed the CD liner notes.

Talk Music Talk with boice

With all due respect, Mikey Buishas’ solo project, 0 Stars, feels ill-named. That's actually a zero! The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has released one of the best of albums of 2019 with Blowing on a Marshmallow in Perpetuity. While its not-quite, half-hour playtime may feel slight, it more than makes up for the length with Mikey’s fluid combination of endless melodies and complex musicality supporting his gently-bruised vocals. [This episode features “Round 2” from Blowing on a Marshmallow in Perpetuity in its entirety.] Buy Blowing on a Marshmallow in...

Emergence (The Process of Coming Into Being), the debut album from Mwenso and the Shakes is a live set, which makes sense considering the Harlem-based group has earned its reputation as a powerhouse stage act. Led by the London-raised, Sierra Leonean Michael Mwenso, the Shakes' Emergence is a collection of well-chosen covers and original tracks that serve as the souvenir to one of their thrilling shows you can’t stop raving about or the sneak peek to whet the appetites of the uninitiated.

Listening the music of Brooklyn indie label, Gentle Reminder, is like tuning into the best college radio station. This might not be a coincidence since label head Reese Higgins first cut his teeth in great music curation at his alma mater’s radio station, WMUC (University of Maryland, College Park). Originally from the D.C./Maryland area, Reese’s label has been responsible for releasing the work of two past Talk Music Talk guests, James Tillman and Will Moloney. [This episode features a 7-song Gentle Reminder playlist handpicked by Reese Higgins.] Visit Gentle Reminder online:...

Drummer and jazz artist Antonio Sanchez has a long and storied CV that just keeps getting more and more impressive. From graduating Magna Cum Laude at the Berklee College of Music to being a longtime member of the Pat Metheny Group to his Golden Globe-nominated score for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman film. The five-time Grammy winner is equally astounding as a bandleader; his most recent release is this year’s Lines in the Sand, which features his band Migration and is the Mexican-American composer’s response to our current administration’s immigration policy.

Talk Music Talk with boice

There's something about YATTA that can neither be defined or contained, but is wholly familiar. It's somewhat akin to that feeling you experience when a dear friend crosses your mind and shortly thereafter they text you. In this way, the Brooklyn-based artist’s music, voice and poetry can be a comfort, yet like nothing you've ever heard. YATTA’s 2016 debut, Spirit Said Yes!, was merely a warm-up for this year's stunning WAHALA (PTP), an exploration of their many journeys that include being black and trans. [This episode features “Francis” from WAHALA in its entirety.] Visit YATTA...
