episode 100: Episode One Hundred! - Jhariah returns!

We finally made it, it's time to celebrate! And how better to mark the one hundred episode and two year milestone than with a conversation with one of my favorite current artists? And a new theme song he composed to boot! That's right, today I'm talking once again to Jhariah, who in the last year has come incredibly far...

episode 99: Episode Ninety-Nine - Cheers to Two Years!

We are here, the final double digit episode of Fly On The Call! Before we hit episode 100 and the two year anniversary, I wanted to take a quick second to talk about the origins of the show, and my goals for it, reflect on the past two years, and talk a little about the future. I hope you don't mind me taking a brief moment to get corny on the main. Thank you for listening, for supporting this podcast as well as the bands I speak to, and for coming along for the ride!

episode 98: Episode Ninety-Eight - A Tiger Made of Lightning

A Tiger Made of Lightning released one of my songs of 2020 with their debut single "exhausted". It encompassed what so many of us were feeling, with a strong, passionate sound, and without pulling any punches. At the same time there was an undercurrent of positivity that served as a reminder that not everything was shit. That positivity is brought even further in the follow-up single and the soon to be released debut EP, "It's Chaos, Be Kind...

episode 97: Episode Ninety-Seven - Arms Like Roses

Arms Like Roses came together in an almost spur of the moment way and even the band themselves are almost surprised at how far they've come. Their debut EP, Get Some Sleep, melds classic emo and post-hardcore sounds with a plethora of other genres, eventually leading to a more concise vision for LP1, which is currently being finished up. The band just released an acoustic follow-up EP, Past Midnight, and have hit the ground running now that they are able to play shows again...

episode 96: Episode Ninety-Six - Telethon returns

Telethon are back! I say this both referring to the fact that they were one of the first guests on Fly On The Call, way back in episode two, and that they just released their ripper of a new record, Swim Out Past The Breakers. For those unfamiliar with the band, they are a hard rockin', poppin', genre swappin' good ole time! The new album has plenty of features, flourishes that couldn't have been added with a standardized studio experience, and much more to keep your ears busy.

episode 95: Episode Ninety-Five - The Spins

As we come to an end of the first week of this two week celebration of Fly On The Call, I'm stoked to bring you my conversation with The Spins. They are a sunshiney alternative indie band with hints of emo, pop punk, and plenty of other genres that will catch your ear. Their debut LP, Not If, But When, dropped earlier this summer and are the perfect vibe for the season...

episode 94: Episode Ninety-Four - The Big Easy

Last year, The Big Easy captured the sound of a DIY basement show when they were not possible. The Long Year and its post-script single, "All Saints Day", can't be pigeonholed into a single genre, but instead by a mindset. They hyper-personal lyricism combined with a melting pot of sounds leads to a unique and cohesive experience...

episode 93: Episode Ninety-Three - Matt Wilson (Near Dark + Set Your Goals "Mutiny!" 15th anniversary)

Near Dark is a melodic punk project that came together remotely as a pandemic project with Matt Wilson as their vocalist. They released their debut EP, Silver Linings, earlier this year and have another one on the way soon. Today's discussion hits on the formation of the band before moving over to discuss the 15th anniversary of Munity! by Set Your Goals. We talk about the album, the touring, the nature of the music industry, and the abundant fun positivity behind the music.

episode 92: Episode Ninety-Two - Palette Knife

Palette Knife's debut LP, Ponderosa Snake House and the Chamber Of Bullshit, is a polished blend of emo, math rock, and post hardcore. Their confessional lyricism and references to media that they're earnestly passionate about make it hard not to connect with the music. On today's episode we discuss the creation of the album, crafting it as a singular experience, a last minute connection with Take This To Heart Records, and what went into the eye catching artwork.

episode 91: Episode Ninety-One - PRONOUN

Fly On The Call is back, baby! For the next two weeks I will be dropping episodes Monday-Friday, leading up to episode 100, a brand new theme song, and the two year anniversary of the show! Today's guest is Alyse Vellturo of PRONOUN. Her newest EP, OMG I MADE IT, brings her lush, bedroom sounds to new heights while bringing back the same painfully relatable style of lyrics. We're talking all about the new release, the emotions, making happy music with sad messages, and a whole lot more...
