Great Good Fine Ok Is A Brooklyn Band With A Sandwich Plan

Their sexy music video, tuna salad, Craigslist fail
May 22, 2014 1:00 pm

I posted the video for synth-pop band Great Good Fine Ok's "You're The One For Me" a few weeks ago. Then their manager hit me up for a food chat which was great, because I actually did have a bunch of questions about that video, so we met up at Dale Talde's roadhouse bar-inspired Pork Slope for beers and inimitable porky melt sandwiches to discuss other inimitable sandwiches. There's no such thing as "too much tuna."

Obviously David Chang And Stephen Malkmus Are In The Same Fantasy Hoops League

Pavement frontman gets around the food world
May 15, 2014 2:00 pm

In the new Food Is The New Rock podcast, we learn a few things about Stephen Malkmus (of Pavement and an incredible 14+ year solo-ish career) including that he’s not a big Chris Bosh fan (co-sign) and that it’s “sad” what has happened to Greg Oden. Also, a lot about his interaction with chefs David Chang and Andy Ricker.

May 14, 2014 9:00 am

As a musician, Annie Clark (the artist better known as St. Vincent) has always put forth a unique blend, incorporating various styles from pop to indie rock to jazz. Now, she's coming out with an entirely different type of blend. This one involves not strings, but beans. According to Sprudge, Clark, in partnership with Intelligentsia, is getting into the coffee business with her own signature blend called "Bring Me Your Mugs

Good Morning, Here Is Some ‘Coffee’ From Our New Favorite Band Sylvan Esso

You like Feist? You like beats? You like coffee?
Mar 26, 2014 8:30 am

Amelia Meath, of Vermont folk trip Mountain Man, and producer Nick Sanborn (called Made of Oak when playing on stages) formed a side project called Sylvan Esso. Their standout single — “Coffee” — doesn’t really have much to do with Kalita or Aeropress. But who cares, it’s a pretty (and pretty interesting) mashup of styles and what we are listening to this morning.

Food writer Peter Barrett tapped pal John Medeski, the jazz keyboardist best known for his role in the soulful band Medeski, Martin and Wood, to kick off his food-meets-music video series, Barrett Cooks. Here, the duo hit the woods to forage for ramps, then head to the kitchen for an array of ramp-centric dishes. Which reminds us, hey, it's almost ramp season! Watch the video, right this way...

Music To Your Mouth has been one of the food/drink world's best-kept secrets for the past seven years, with the festival held exclusively on the grounds of Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina.

Now, the show is going on the road, starting with a Music To Your Mouth event in Austin, Texas on April 24. Details, this way.

Video: We Like When Band Au Revoir Simone Reviews Wines After Drinking Lots Of It

Bands: This is what you do when touring France
Feb 25, 2014 5:30 pm

Heather D'Angelo and Annie Hart are two-thirds of Brooklyn electro-pop trio Au Revoir Simone. They are also, apparently, the two wine-loving members of the band as we find them in this video backstage after their recent concert in Roubaix, France talking about the wines on their tour rider. The segment is called "Night Rider Wine" and we really dig it.

Big Gigantic Eats Brussels Sprouts, Skips The Kangaroo

But Boulder's electro-jazz duo prefers pizza. Lots.
Feb 18, 2014 3:00 pm

My first call to Jeremy Salken of Boulder, CO electro-funk band Big Gigantic ended in phone tag while I listened to his outgoing voicemail message, a full minute of confused grandpa assuring you it's all going to be okay. Then he laughed at me for listening to the whole thing. Then we dove right into the most specific request I've ever heard on a tour rider.
