Show #147: Gallo

As I mention in the show, Stacy Basner has impeccable taste in music and always manages to find me the best bands for the show.  Unfortunately, as with the Post Script, she has a tendency to find them about a half-hour before the interview, leaving no time for research or even listening to the band beforehand.  Fortunately, she's also an excellent guest host and picks very well-spoken entertaining guests, ensuring that for once you don't have to listen to too much of my voice droning on in this episode. 

This time around, Stacy introduces us to Kinski and Rodax, a pair of "tour buddies" of hers from Los Angeles currently going under the band name of Gallo (Pronounced: GUY-oh).  These brothers have just release a trilogy of albums: an all-Spanish language record, Fuego, and all-English language record, Phoenix Rising, and a bi-lingual world-beat record, Mamawe.  The music is excellent, though somewhat different from what we're used to hearing here in Indy, and I've long lamented that I can count our pop bands on one hand, which seems to me to be an opportunity if there ever was one.  I ended up purchasing the trilogy in deluxe form that night, which included posters, stickers, booklets, and a plethora of things I didn't need, but was pretty sure I had to have anyway.  No regrets there, I assure you.

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.
