Show #033: Jeff DeHerdt

While I've probably listened to a couple hundred local acts in the past three years, and I always make a concerted effort to research every artist and band that I put on the show, there are only a few local artists whose music I am as intimately familiar with as I am Jeff DeHerdt's.  Therefore, when our Friday night plans to catch a show in Broad Ripple got unexpectedly nixed, it was a no-brainer on how to spend our time instead: Pop downstairs to "Studio B" and record a long-overdue podcast featuring the best of his solo material.   

Jeff was actually one of the first guests on the show with a different band, CA3 -- originally a long, schizophrenic interview filled with all kinds of "music geek" goodness that I had to edit down to 40 or so minutes.  This should have been my first warning.  This time, throwing in three hours of chatting about everything from movies, British scifi, computers, and comic books  before we actually got around to hitting the record button at 11:30 at night, means that I once again ended up with over two hours of raw material and had to spend an entire day cutting out some great, yet completely-unrelated, topics of conversation to get everything to a manageable length.   As such, this show is a lot less formal and much more candid/conversational than what you normally hear around here, though some of the drastic shifts in topic are more the result of my editing than they are any sort of personality disorder or psychic link on the part of Jeff or myself.  Frankly, I prefer this more-organic format, and hopefully, you will enjoy it as well. 

Links referenced in the show:     

  • Jeff DeHerdt can be found here: MySpace | Web Site | (Neglected) Blog
  • Both his CD's, Club Bordeaux and The Autumn House are available at CD Baby. 
  • His first appearance on Indy In-Tune was with his experimental electronic band CA3 back on Show #005.   
  • We both struggled during the interview to remember what accolade "I'm All the Friends That I've Got" won.  After a bit of research, we found that not only was it nominated for best song and best album in the 2006 Just Plain Folks music awards, but also got nineteen separate awards on Garageband.com. 
  • The fourth segment of the show largely references a survey we and many of our friends took, originally on Facebook, where we listed our fifteen most-influential albums (not necessarily the best albums, but the ones that shaped our musical tastes and had the biggest influence on us).  That survey is now replicated in the members area of indyintune.com, for your enjoyment. 
  • This week's promo is for The Chillcast, which features a great mix of podsafe jazz, world music, electronica, and soul.

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.
