BRANDI IS GOING TO HELL
EP. 26: The Velvicks, Brooklyn’s Brazilian Rockers
I kick off this episode with new releases that I dig, which includes Annie DiRusso’s God, I Hate This Place, Meet Me @ The Altar’s Past // Present // Future, Algiers’s Shook, Bilk’s Bilk, and The Luka States’s More Than This.
My special guest includes Brooklyn’s Brazilian “stadium rock” rockers The Velvicks! Lead singer & founding member Vick Nader joins me on BRANDI IS GOING TO HELL to share the band’s Brazilian roots, how the band’s song “Ldnyc (Lockdown NYC)” and its airplay in Brazil unlocked a wave of new opportunities, and the deeper narratives of the songs. I also hit him and original drummer Ed Marson with silly rapid-fire questions! 🎸🇧🇷
