Show #027: Original State of Mind

This is the last of seven shows recorded on September 15th at the Kammy's Kause benefit.  Pretty much by this point I'm wired for speed on coffee, freezing my butt off, and somewhat punchy as we creep into the late hours of the night.  In all, it was a great day, filled with excellent music, great people, tasty food, and a lot of fun doing my first marathon podcasting session.  I'm looking foward to going back next year and trying to hit both nights.

Original State of Mind is a tight knit, structured band with the sensibilities and improvisational skills of a jam band and successfully bridges both of those worlds and creates a sound that appeals to both camps of fans.  As the interview shows, off-stage they are a tight knit bunch with a great deal of respect for each other's talents and skills, with each member of the band bringing something to the table that makes the whole greater than the sum of it's parts.

Links referenced in the show:

  • Original State of Mind can be found here: Myspace | Web Site.
  • Their first CD, Fresh Cut Grass, is available at their live shows and on their web site.  When it is available via digital downloads, we'll add a link here.
  • They're all big fans of the movie The Never Ending Story.
  • And as with all of these seven shows, we need to thank the following people:

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.
