Show #022: Say

This is the second of seven shows recorded on September 15th at the Kammy's Kause benefit (and apparently the fifth and final in a series of bands whose name begins with the letter 'S'). I have to admit I was somewhat nervous about this one. They didn't seem to have any biographical information I could research ahead of time, I missed about half of their set to record Show #021 (If you pay attention, you can in fact hear Say playing in the background all through the Shadyside Allstars interview), and even MC Mike Potempa, who had been introducing me to the bands that day, could only offer, "I really don't know anything about those guys. They seem really quiet."

Death knell for a podcast ... or so I thought.

As interviews go however, these guys were among the easiest to work with. As unprepared interviews go, I think they were pretty friggin' awesome -- a very intelligent, prepared, down-to-earth group of guys who have great stories, quick wits, and some excellent music that they shared with us.

By way of quick review: Their debut CD, Cornfields to Concrete is a wickedly diverse collection of seven tracks that has a little something for everyone. Hip hop, funk, strait-ahead rock, acoustic folk, are all represented ... and represented well. Sadly my own personal favorite, a slow, bluesy, almost swing-lounge style number called "Baroness" is not represented in this podcast, though it does now feature heavily in my personal "Best of Indianapolis" playlist.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
