Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #785 – 6/24/2017: Matt Langlois of The Welcome Matt interview!

Matt Langlois

San Franciscan Matt Langlois and his band The Welcome Matt, have been a fixture of our show for several years now. But today is the first time I’ve ever spoken with Matt. What brought us to this momentous occasion is the release of his amazing new album, More Empire Days. It is a vital document of what is happening in 2017 in San Francisco, the world, and probably your town as well. As far as the subject matter, if you were to put Chuck Prophet and Joe Strummer into a room and make them write songs, you’d probably get these songs. The sound is at times rockin’, hard-driving, and even danceable and thoughtful. That’s no small feat to mix all those styles into one album, but Matt Langlois has done it seamlessly. You need this record. Find out more at

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #784 – 6/17/2017: Heather Trost interview!

Heather Trost

On today’s show, we meet musician Heather Trost. Heather hails from New Mexico, and has spent time all over the American West and in Europe. She sees music visually, and that’s reflected in her great new solo album, Agistri. Her soundscapes paint musical pictures of such diverse places as the New Mexico desert and the islands of Greece. You can almost hear the sun and wind as she creates with her vintage collection of keyboards. Her other band is A Hawk and a Hacksaw, where she plays violin. All in all, a compelling listen. Check out for more info on Heather and Agistri.
