C&T on Blog Fresh Radio: Supercluster!

I'm a day late in posting this, but I'm featured again this week on Blog Fresh Radio. This episode also includes interviews with the folks from Chromewaves, Music Like Dirt, Sonic Itch Music, and Mr. Mammoth. My submission? Athens supergroup Supercluster.

Supercluster includes members of Pylon, New Sound of Numbers, Bob Hay & the Jolly Beggars, and Casper & the Cookies, and their current release is a 5-track EP titled (appropriately) Special 5. Vanessa Hay (of Pylon) handles most of the vocal duties, and the EP features tunes reminiscent of both her band's art-rock and the pop sound closely associated with Athens.

I shared the EP's closing track, "Anyone" with Blog Fresh because of its interesting history. The track was written in the early 1980s for Bob Hay's Squalls, but never recorded. As it was a favorite of wife Vanessa, the song found its way onto the Supercluster EP two decades later. Pretty sweet, huh? It's not the most representative track on the record, but I like it quite a bit.
