Hanzolo at WEXT
WEXT

Meet a band from Cooperstown called Hanzolo. These guys have ties with each other that mostly date back to fourth grade. They learn a bit about each other as they reveal instruments the others had no idea they played (even if ever so briefly). An entertaining band to say the least, we learn how they got the band name and more. And yes, they are "Star Wars” fans, but that’s not exactly where the name comes from. 

Hear Hanzolo, and their very interesting blend of rock, funk, soul and jazz.

In his vast catalog of music, Radiohead's Thom Yorke has trembled like a broken man on his knees. He has screamed in tormented six-part harmony; he has manic-whispered diaries worth of existential fear. Still, he just can't shake the techno-dread. Most recently, that dread has manifested in Yorke's third solo project, ANIMA, released on June 27.

When I spoke to Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney about their new album, Let's Rock!, as The Black Keys, they joked around about themselves a lot.

I told this story on the 40th anniversary of the first moonwalk, but on this 50th anniversary, like grandpa, I'll tell it again.

It was July 20, 1969 and I had tickets to see the supergroup of supergroups: Blind Faith. I was psyched until I realized that it was to be the night of the very first manned moon landing — and the very first time a human would walk on the moon.
