Acid Magus
This week Brian is joined by Keenan from Acid Magus. Acid Magus is an experimental rock outfit from Pretoria, South Africa. Doom, stoner, punk, psych, and classic rock are all common themes. As huge fans of the rock greats (Zeppelin, Sabbath), stoner/desert rock behemoths (Kyuss, Sleep) as well as the tripped out psychedelic stylings of modern “psych” bands like Slift. Acid Magus take inspiration from all kinds of great music, spanning the entire gamut from 60s Hendrix/The Doors to Hawkwind and Scorpion at their heaviest, all the way to pretty much everything inspired by Black Sabbath today. All this with maybe a little Alt Rock sensibility thrown in for good measure. With an uncompromising, DIY approach to writing, Acid Magus promises to offer up only the best, most impassioned musical works. Long, slow, heavy, soft, it’s all there, and it comes from the heart... Tune in to find out everything there is to know about Acid Magus. Songs included in this episode: 1. Wyrd Syster 2.

Calvin SmithMNERVA
This week Brian is joined by MNERVA. MNERVA talks too much and isn’t afraid to admit it. With his witty lyrics, honest delivery, and energetic production, MNERVA has forged his own lane in the Alternative scene by fusing his rock, hip hop, and musical theatre influences into a cohesive sound. Originally hailing from Germantown, Maryland, MNERVA moved to Nashville in 2015 to hone his craft and debuted as a hip hop artist in early 2020 after going viral by writing a jukebox musical based on the catalog of twenty one pilots. But after enduring the Covid-19 pandemic, MNERVA embraced his rock background and began opening up about his struggles with mental health and his fear of the future. The result is his debut EP, Talk Too Much, a bombastic culmination of five years of personal hardships and self discovery. With this project, MNERVA has finally cemented his sound and is ready to challenge the conventional wisdom of combining rock and hip hop. Topics covered include: MNERVA's approach to songwriting. Mental health and music. How MNERVA went viral and the outcome. How MNERVA got into music and much much more.

David AustinSix Time Losers
This week Brian is joined by Butch, Lester and Otis from Six Time Losers Six Time Losers is the band that country music didn't know it needed. They are intricate, organic and genuine – they are who they are; infectious with a distinct sound that creates die hard fans. They have shared the stage with the likes of Gary Allan, American Aquarium, Langhorne Slim and more, and there is no stopping this train. Bringing a big band feel to southern rock, Six Time Losers has released their newest album Only First Names Die. They are vibrant, intricate, introspective and genuine; and the same can be said for this newest musical offering.  Only First Names Die is a diverse collection of 12 songs spanning genres like folk and alt-country, and inspirations including life, love and historical retrospection. They even honor former band member Weston Williams with their single, “East Coast Railway,” written by Williams who passed away two years ago. Six Time Losers may be innovative, but their respect for tradition and those who came before is to be admired. The album was recorded at Capricorn Sound Studios’ historic Studio A, where musical stars such as The Allman Brothers Band, Otis Redding III, Charlie Daniels Band and the Marshall Tucker Band have recorded. The studio closed its doors in 1979, with Six Time Losers as one of the first acts to record a full-length album in the studio since its closing. The new Only First Names Die album by Six Time Losers is available everywhere now!
