The founder of Sasquatch Music Festival and John Van Deusen talk new music and festival swaps!

May 23, 2017

We had two great guests drop by the studio for Locals Only this week and played lots of new music.

In the first hour I was joined Sasquatch! Music Festival founder, Adam Zacks. We talked all things Sasquatch and spent some time playing tracks from many of the local bands playing the festival this weekend. We also talked about adding LCD Soundsystem to the lineup in the wake of Frank Ocean exiting, and some local artists Adam is a fan of such as Mindy Lind, Bread & Butter, Maiah Manser and Acid Tongue.

I was also joined by John Van Deusen (formerly of The Lonely Forest) to talk about his new album The Universal Sigh. John also brought some friends with him, Erik Walters of Silver Torches and Andy Park, who both worked on the new record. If you're keeping score at home you may have noticed that Erik and Andy have been frequent guests on the show lately. These dudes work with everyone!

We spent most of the second hour playing several new tracks from John's solo album as well as a song from the punk band he is in, buffet, and the latest from Briana Marela.

You can see John Van Deusen live at the release party for The Universal Sigh on June 9th at the Lincoln Theater in Mount Vernon. Trust me, it will be worth the drive.
