Described often as “pint-sized,” in reality, she probably has about five pints in her at any given moment. Lover of sweet funk basslines and turn of the century delta blues artists, it’s fairly clear only they can make something like a bedtick seem downright romantic. Now that’s music making right there.
Jenna writes the daily items, reviews and shoots gigs, produces the podcast, curates the Juiced Hard Drive Download 5, waxes poetic on that genre which folded her to music forever with the Punk Thursday series, and keeps the Blues Archive in check.
She also blogs about her nerdy loves and knits over at Kraftwork.
A hack reporter in a wealthy suburban town, he manages to get through the day…or at least morning and evening traffic…by listening to music. He has often been caught singing while driving and prays his warbles aren’t audible to other poor souls stuck in traffic with him–especially when it happens to be Miley Cyrus’s “See You Again” or a mangled version of a cheesy Russian pop song.
He dreams of one day becoming an ace songwriter specializing in sad bastard tunes. “Embarrassing Stories,” “I Have No One [But Myself to Blame],” and “Sunny Days Are Wasted On Me” are some working titles. They’ll be unleashed once he feels the world is finally ready for an Irish-Lithuanian-Bolivian tone-deaf crooner with an affinity for British mope rock (in other words, never).
Esteban writes live reviews, curates the Sad Bastard Sunday series and talks at length about bespectacled and/or redheaded frontwomen.
