PODCAST: The Struggle Is Real (S1E7)


Musicians Ryan Gurnett and Dennis Reed Jr talk about the good, the bad and the funny of being a DIY musician from the Struggling Studios in Buffalo, New York. In this episode, drummer and recording engineer Blake Cooper of the lo-fi sun-pop Rochester band Dumb Angel stops by to talk “boutique” labels, format wars, nightmare recording sessions, and how to avoid that “deer in the headlights” look in the recording studio. Also, Ryan mines the always entertaining and occasionally illegal Buffalo Craigslist “music community” ads to test Dennis in a new edition of our game show, “Real, Not Real?”

MUSIC:
47:16 - “Moss” by Dumb Angel (2015)

We need your opinion! Please take this quick 10-question quiz. There's no email sign-up or any BS. The questions are all fun, Buffalo music-related things like, "What is the most overplayed cover song?", "What's the worst place in Buffalo+WNY to play?", "What are you most likely to leave behind at a gig?", etc. The answers of the poll will be revealed in a future Family Feud-style segment on The Struggle Is Real Buffalo Music Podcast. Please share or tag friends you know will have an opinion about this. Thanks in advance!
