Show #266: Jeff DeHerdt Returns

Just to clarify this somewhat oddly-flowing podcast episode, it was originally broadcast live on Indy In-Tune Radio one Saturday afternoon as a "Jeff DeHerdt Listening Party" where we played his new release, Ghost Museum, in its entirety over the course of an entire afternoon. Sadly, about fifteen minutes in, my trusty 15-year-old laptop decided to reboot itself (it has never done this before, or since), causing us to lose the actual introduction to Jeff and his album, and making it really difficult to piece a new one out of the various conversations we had over the rest of the afternoon. (Jeff and I are notorious for just geeking out on off-topic conversations, usually involving comic books, scifi or obscure old bands.) Therefore, it's going to feel like you got dropped in the middle of a conversation, which technically you did. In fact, you're also hearing what was literally a four and a half-hour rambling conversation that I've somehow paired down to one hour. It was worth it though.

Jeff DeHert is a long-time friend of the show, one of my favorite musicians to go see, and obviously one of my favorite people to sit and talk to for hours on end about every topic under the sun. With Ghost Museum, he continues his musical evolution that started almost 15 years ago with the largely jazz-related Club Bordeau, through the popjazz AOR of Autumn House, and into still another very different realm, this time drawing on sounds and stylings of late new wave influenced pop, but adding a more refined modern sophistication to it that makes it less of a tribute or mashup and more of a love letter.

Links Referenced in the Show:

  • Jeff DeHerdt can be found here: Facebook | Web Site | (Neglected) Blog
  • Information about his latest project, Ghost Museum, can be found here.
  • All three of his CD's (that he owns up to #TheBlueAlbumExists) can be found at the usual suspects: Bandcamp | Amazon | iTunes | CD Baby.
  • His first appearance on Indy In-Tune was with his experimental electronic band CA3 back on Show #005. He has since appeared on Show #033 and Show #100, plus a couple of guest-host appearances if you skim through the library.
  • He's playing Char Blu three Friday nights in December with drummer, Michael Beck, from Dog Talk and Happy the Man.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
