Twin Cities Celtic-rock band The Langers Ball visited IPR's Studio One last week, while they were in the area for the Iowa Irish Festival.  The group originally started as an acoustic duo of accordionist and pennywhistler Hannah Rediske and guitarist and mandolinist Michael Sturm. They recruited some other musicians to play with them in the studio, and decided that it was so much fun, they wanted to be a full band all the time.

Facebook: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

The East Coast band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are known for exemplifying the phenomenon of the Internet buzz band at the start of their career.  The band's totally self-made debut album rode a tide of blogger attention to great success in 2005.  Since then, there have been side projects, personnel changes and three more full-length albums of consistently well-crafted indie pop.  The new Only Run satisfies with both dance-oriented tracks and rockers.

  With August upon us, we are now near the middle of summer. Some of my summer music obsessions have been the debut albums from Spanish Gold (South of Nowhere), Mø (No Mythologies to Follow), and St. Paul and the Broken Bones (Half the City). They may be new to the scene but don’t let that fool you, for instance the core members of Spanish Gold are seasoned musicians who have ties with My Morning Jacket, Hacienda, Dan Auerbach’s Fast Five, and Groupo Fantasma.

In this encore episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend" from 2012 host, Ben Kieffer will chat with Matthew Santos.

It has been said that the closest and most enchanting vocal harmonies are created by siblings.  This is certainly borne out in the case of the Swedish duo First Aid Kit.  Sisters Johanna and Klara Soderberg are from Enskede, a suburb of Stockholm.  For Stay Gold, their third full-length album, producer Mike Mogis (of Bright Eyes fame) is back at the helm, having helped to make the last First Aid Kit album a great success.  Mogis showcases the sisters' beautiful Swedish-accented harmonies with rich indie-folk instrumentation.

The band Scythian (pronounced SITH-ee-unn - they’re named after a nomadic Eurasian tribe) has an unlikely combination of influences.  Three of the members are siblings: fiddler Alexander, guitarist Danylo and cellist Larissa Fedoryka are from a family of Ukrainian immigrant, and were classically trained.  Bassist Josef Crosby, who also doubles on fiddle, was classically trained as well. Drummer Tim Hepburn started out in jazz, and banjo player Ben-David Warner grew up on a diet of Celtic music via NPR’s Thistle and Shamrock.

The Orwells

Our featured release this week on Studio One is the second full-length album from the young Chicago band, The Orwells.  Actually, they are from Elmhurst, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago, making them that much closer to being a regional band!  Of course, their place of origin is not as important as the vital, tuneful garage rock that they play on the new Disgraceland​.  The five members of The Orwells have known each other for years, forming the band and getting signed to Autumn Tone Records for their first album while still in high school.

In this encore episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend" from 2012 host, Ben Kieffer will chat with The Feralings.

Listen to and download the podcast to find out more about the spunky Iowa roots band. 

The Feralings are Benj Upchurch, Nicole Upchurch, Patrick Bloom, and Stacy Webster, but the name is a bit of a misnomer, as the members of the band are far more likely to invite you to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea than they are to jump you and steal your beer money.

Jack White has enjoyed both critical and commercial success since the late 1990's when he and Meg White formed The White Stripes.  Since then he has made his mark as a musician, songwriter, record producer and more.  White was also a founding member of The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather.  Most recently, he has been focusing on his solo career, releasing his album Blunderbuss in 2012.  The follow-up is Lazaretto​, lyrically inspired in part by stories, plays and poems White wrote when he was 19.

South Of Nowhere is the debut album from the trio Spanish Gold, formed last year by former Hacienda guitarist and vocalist Dante Schwebel.  Schwebel had originally wanted to work as a solo artist, but soon decided to make Spanish Gold a band project.  Former Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada and My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan completed the trio.  Their soul, rock and hip-hop influenced record was primarily recorded at Dan Auerbach's studio in Nashville, with additional recording in Austin, Texas.
