I talk with Atlanta author and humorist Andisheh Nouraee about his Creative Loafing “Don’t Panic” columns, his upcoming book(s) and his path to writing. I also catch up with Atlanta Native Fewture about his position in limbo as an Atlanta MC with a broad-based approach to his sound. Finally, I speak with Atlanta Band The Goldest about their self-titled EP at their studio during a practice session.

Music heard in this podcast from Atlanta acts:
– Manchester Orchestra
– Fewture
– The Goldest

The first person to email me (info@abenghorn.net) with the Answers to these questions will get a free copy of The Goldest’s self titled EP
Question #1: What is the topic of either of Andisheh Nouraee’s two new books ideas/projects?
Question #2: Name one school The Fewture attended
Question #3: Name one of the members of The Goldest.

If you can answer 2 out of 3, you get the goods. Email me with the subject line: AA#19 answers.

Good luck!

One good thing about being sick & in bed is time to think…

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Atlanta Music, Podcast by Dom Brady on January 25, 2009

I’ve come up with some interesting ideas for the podcasts I’m working on in the near future.  Should be interesting.  Have you ever heard the old Moral Chicanery podcast I used to do with Nyerere?  Perhaps not.  Actually, it’s a good thing that you hadn’t.  While those podcasts had their moments, they just weren’t that good.  The new idea is based off of that principle but with some new bells and whistles.  It should be very funny, very fresh and I’m going to be very disappointed if I find out someone in doing what I have in mind already.    Upset wouldn’t even be a good word to describe how I’d feel, actually.  

 

Anyway, while I’m hear I might as well announce the last 14 or so guests of Analogue Atlanta after episode #17 is published:  Random Rabbit, Bem Joiner, Random Rabbit, No Face, Gringo Star,  Tendaberry, Melanie Stevens, PJ Morton, Yelawolf, Dj Tabone, Fewture, Fray Wall, Mr. Lucky  and Sky Hy.     Interest piqued?  I hope so.  Should be a lot of fun.   Can’t wait to share these conversations with ya’ll.  Next season should be even better.

Details soon come.

Looks like Collective Efforts is working with DiamonD

I asked an open-ended question about Ben Hameen’s Facebook comment referring to this and Jmil of Collective Efforts confirmed it. More on them on Analogue Atlanta sometime in the near future. We haven’t set a date yet, but they’ve agreed to sit down and talk about their new projects. I’m just lazy and broke. Driving out to the Top-End perimeter to their studio is a TREK, man. Soon come.

ATL MC Fewture

 

 

Speaking of Future, I’ll catch up with College Park Emcee Fewture     in the upcoming weeks. He called me to reschedule our meeting I had to postpone when one of my family members was ill. We’ll have that conversation coming soon.

Until then?  He’ll be your Frankenstein…

Guess who’s back?  Yes, him, a member of Hip Hop crew “The Justus League” , Joe Scudda, has relocated to Georgia.  We catch up with  MC Joe Scudda to talk about his new projects, what brought him back to Atlanta and what he thinks about Atlanta’s burgening Indie scene. 

 

I’m really looking forward to my chat with  Atlanta-based freelance-writer and Author of “War on Error: Real Stories of American Muslims” Melody Moezzi, Atlanta Hip Hop Photographer and Historian Shannon McCollum  and College Park-Born & Bred MC Fewture.  I’ve already chatted with another College Park wordsmith Stanza .   His interview along with  Atlanta-based Comedy writer Brandon McCorwin and award winning Atlanta  Film Maker Matt Wolfe are coming up in the Next few weeks of Analogue Atlanta. Can’t wait to share those stories with you.

I’ll be interviewing Donnie Seals  Saturday about his upcoming documentary for Extra Analogue , my series on indie arts outside of Atlanta, and will be posting the audio of my Mayer Hawthorne tape from CMJ ’08 as well. Lots more coming. I’m also working on a continuation of my Runnin’ From Daylight series on the speculative fiction site 50yfn (50 years from now).

I’m making lemons out of lemonade, people. I, too, am a layoff victim.  HIRE ME!  If not, I’ll be doing these interviews until I’m UNDER the poor house.   I see you.  Don’t worry. I can write in AP style, I promise.  My handbook is in my back pocket.   By the by, my print interviews with D.R.E.S tha BEATnik, Alice Russell and Chester French will debut in Art Nouveau Magazine later this month…I’m hearing they go live on the 12th of January.
