Tag: Naked Gods

“If pop music is a wild animal, then this Chapel Hill trio’s domesticated it, teaching it to sit up, roll over and lay in their lap. Their songs amble with unhurried grace and purr with ineffable charm. Frontman Patrick O’Neill has a gift for vocal melodies that insinuate themselves into your confidences so completely that, after a couple of listens, you’re ready to buy them a round of drinks. The songs boast a woozy ebb and flow fueled by a vibrant rhythm section that’s capable of unspooling the sound with the measured skill of a master angler loosening and locking his reel.” - Hopscotch Music Festival
Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores
“Chapel Hill-based band… reminiscent of early Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers… Triangle’s Independent Weekly has said the band’s ‘excitability and wanderlust are worth watching.’”- Taken from the Wylie Hunter & The Cazadores MySpace Page.
Lastly, let me just say that since Mark Connor has become the bookers for the Local Beer Local Band series I have not stopped being impressed by the bands he has brought us. Crystal Bright & The Silver Hand is possibly the most unique and interesting band I’ve seen in a while. Also, last week’s Naked Gods gave such a lively, dance-able show. I cannot wait to see either of these bands again!
**There will be no live interview this week due to the broadcast of a Women’s Basketball game.

Naked Gods—Mountaineer rockers of “hapless burly-pop prog-punk” from Boone, NC. The same place where Jenna of Jenna and the Jintlemen hails from. They’ve done a split 7″ with the Invisible Hand. A great start to your Thursday evening.
The Tomahawks—If you remember, the Tomahawks played and outstanding Fridays on the Lawn show with the Tender Fruit in November. The band features a mishmash of members from other local favorites Max Indian and Bright Young Things. The Tomahawks will finish up the night with their southern indie roots rock.
Interview with Naked Gods on Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the night of the show. Tune in for awesomeness!
And let’s not forget the three interviews in one hour preceding that show. That’s right, I shuffled all three of these bands in and out of the studio. Better yet, Bright Young Things played a Jayhawks-inspired version of their own “She Left You Dreaming.” Luego followed with Patrick’s solo version of “Run Away” that will be on their album Ocho, to be released later this year.
Check the interview below — the catch is that you have to sift through to my voice to catch the live songs. But they’re worth it! Enjoy.
(But wait, there’s more! Free Bright Young Things music at Bandcamp!)
