Ain't No Mountain High Enough

This week on Little Radio, I'll have special guests. I know! Crazy!

The fellas from EVEREST will be spending a little time with me, talking about themselves and their earthy indie. Their bio says they are "are on the druggier, sleepier side of the latest indie-country wave, but their songwriting is way stronger and (gasp!) actually unique, and they play with about two busloads more feel, coherence, and dynamics than anybody else." And I think that's pretty accurate.

Everest consists of some people you may have heard of:

Pictured here from left to right (sorta): Davey Latter (earlimart, Great Northern), Joel Graves (earlimart, Wild Gift), Russ Pollard (Folk Implosion, alaska!), J. Soda (Everest Recorders) and Rob Douglas.

They'll be releasing an EP soon which was recorded at New Monkey Studios (Elliott Smith's place) with producer Mike Terry (Foo Fighters, The Eagles!), and they'll be playing at the Hotel Cafe on Sunday, May 13th.

Tune in and check out how swell they are, at about 8:30pm on Thursday, May 10th. It'll totally rule. And I'll ask them if they named themselves after that mountain.
