Slam Donahue Catches Bugs

Slam Donahue are a quirky Brooklyn act led by singer/guitarist David Otto and bassist Thomas Sommerville, and last week, they came to the Music Conservatory to film a session on a rather ho-hum hump day. The band, who are fittingly on Cantora Records who have killer tripsters MGMT on their roster, didn’t perform for students but did serenade a few fruit flies fittingly during their performance of ultra-catchy “Bug in the Sun” off their EP Hemlock Tea which dropped today. Watch and listen, and enjoy the chat that follows the song. Namaste.

About A-Sides with Jon Chattman
Jon Chattman’s music series features artists (established or not) from all genres performing a track, and discussing what it means to them. This informal series focuses on the artist making art in a low-threatening, extremely informal (sometimes humorous) way. No bells, no whistles — just the music performed in a random, low-key setting followed by an unrehearsed chat. In an industry where everything often gets overblown and over manufactured, I’m hoping this is refreshing.
