The 162nd episode of the show spotlighting local and regional acts also boasted music from Wicker Basket, Cosmic Knot, Jake Kershaw, Hannah Laine and Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys. Listen to the podcast.
The Hacky Turtles grew up in Traverse City, started playing music together in East Lansing, recorded their first album in Chicago, and now make their home in Grand Rapids.
That kind of circuitous musical journey could also describe the Oct. 20 edition of Local Spins on WYCE which traveled the gamut of styles: funk to folk to gypsy swing to prog-rock to neo-soul to electronic music to blues to bluegrass.
The in-studio, on-air visit by The Hacky Turtles — singer Marc Kanitz, guitarists Alex Rushlow and Austin Spencer, and drummer Erik Krueger — saw the genre-mingling funk-rock/folk foursome churn out lively renditions of “TacoCat” and “Hot Hot.” (Read a Local Spins Artist Spotlight feature on The Hacky Turtles here.)
Episode No. 162 also boasted the premiere of new songs by Olivia Mainville & The Aquatic Troupe, Watching for Foxes, Blushing Monk, Cassidy Bisher and Wicker Basket, plus music from West Michigan artists Hannah Laine (this week’s musicians’ pick), Cosmic Knot, Jake Kershaw and Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys.
