In this awesome interview episode I’m talking to Toby Kremple, bass player for the Georgetown Orbits. We talk about how the band got together, Toby’s background in ska music, what it is like to tour with the Slackers and more! Including the song “Heavyset” off of the latest Georgetown Orbits album “Super Sonic.” Toby lets us all in on why “Heavyset” sounds like it does. Trust me, you’re gonna wanna hear this! And after the interview Toby sent me this message: “The response from that song alone has been a real inspiration to my thoughts about the next Orbits album… to try one in a more lo-fi setting is something I want to shoot for; the guys all in the same room with as few mics as possible and keeping that wide dynamic range by not compressing the final tracks so much.” I told you this was an awesome episode!
