The Lagniappe Sessions: Omni (Second Session) 

Just prior to the lockdown, Omni recorded their second entry for the Lagniappe Sessions. While their 2016 initial set paid tribute to ‘the best Alice Cooper song you’ve never heard’, here, the Atlanta trio take on Billy Joel’s FM radio-ready paean to the shadow self — “The Stranger.” Next up...some 10cc! 

Transmissions: A Conversation With Steve Gunn 

We're joined by Steve Gunn for this episode of the Transmissions podcast—completing our round of talks with the participants of the Gunn/Lattimore/Tyler canceled tour. But there's much more to hear here than another pandemic rap. Topics of conversation include the new Livin' In Between EP, which pairs Gunn's last Lagniappe Session with a brand-new cover of Neil Young's "Motion Pictures," Steve's hardcore youth, immersion in the experimental Philadelphia scene, and his longstanding creative partnership with drummer John Trucinski.
