SMI Radio Ep.87 (Science! / Nicki Bluhm) by SMI Radio published on 2013/03/24 20:04:51 +0000 On this week’s episode of SMI Radio, Justin and Jim stop by the studio to talk about their long-term friendship and musical kinship. They also select a few tracks from their self-titled EP, which you’ll hear on this week’s show. If you want to see Science! do their thing live, they’ll be playing Nectar Lounge on Tuesday, March 26, at 8pm. Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers‘ sound harkens back to the days of early 70s southern California rock, which spawned the likes of Jackson Brown and The Eagles. Bluhm and her band captures the spirit of that beautiful sound while putting their own stamp on it. The band has garnered a lot of attention from the viral video recorded in their car of Hall & Oats, I Can’t Go For That, resulting in almost 2 million views. In the second half of the show, California artist Nicki Bluhm shares her thoughts in a backstage interview prior to her sold-out show at Seattle’s Triple Door. Nicki talks about some of her musical influences, such as Linda Ronstadt, Karen Carpenter, and Stevie Nicks.
