Mountain Head - Stealing Heads With Kindness

Ep. 258

We're so stoked to have Mountain Head as our guests on No Simple Road this week! Mountain Head begins with the Hannah Brothers, and a mountain. The mysterious duo wandered through the wasteland and arrived at a mountain, which they scaled. At the top, they discovered a shaman who changed the brothers' lives and way of thinking forever. Their sound blends psych-rock, alt-rock, and elements of electro-pop and jangle pop into unique and potent sonic concoctions.


We sit down with Kyle & Ben and get into their visit with a Shaman, how psychedelics changed their music forever, how being brothers affects their process, what prompted them to learn tabla and sitar, how yoga and meditation fit into their lives, why they wear grills, the meaning of the black hat, and a whole bunch more!

Rome Yamilov & Henry J. Kaiser - The Lenoir Investigation

Ep. 273
We've got something special for you this week with Rome Yamilov and Henry J. Kaiser as our guests on No Simple Road. Their new album,The Lenoir Investigation, may have started as a tribute to Chicago blues greatJ.B. Lenoir, but the two guitarist’s worldly influences carry the 11 tracks around the globe. The album is out now viaLittle Village.Henry Kaiser’s work in psychedelic guitar playing has few parallels, as the formerPsychedelic Guitar Circusringleader has played on over 300 albums and even used the South Pole—the pole mounted on Earth’s south geographic pole—as a slide to play Antarctic blues. Enter Rome Yamilov, the Russian-born guitarist who came to Little Village by way of harp playerAki Kumarthrough the San Jose blues scene.There's so much packed into this one! We start with a conversation with Rome about his humble beginnings, playing with Aki Kumar, and how he ended up working on this amazing project. Then, we jump into a conversation with Henry that will for sure leave you speechless. Let's just say, 45 minutes talking about how the song Dark Star is alive. You can thank us later!SONG AT THE BEGINNING OF THE INTERVIEW: 'I feel So Good' off the album "The Lenoir Investigation"No Simple Road Intro Music Created By ESCAPERFREE SHIPPING from Shop Tour Bus Use The PROMO CODE: nosimpleroadFor 20% off Sunset Lake CBD PROMO CODE: NSR20 For 25% off Electric Fish Lights PROMO CODE: NSRFOR 10% off your first month of Better Help CLICK HEREFor 20% off Grady's Cold Brew PROMO CODE: NSRMUSIC IN THE COMMMERCIALS BY AND USED WITH PERMISSION OF:CIRCLES AROUND THE SUNOUTRO MUSIC BY AND USED WITH PERMISSION OF:CHILLDREN OF INDIGONo Simple Road is part of OSIRIS MEDIA.

Jordan Fletcher - Rising To The Occasion

Ep. 272
We couldn't be more stoked to bring you Jordan Fletcher as our guest on No Simple Road this week! The Jacksonville-born and Nashville-based artist conveys his story with play-by-play urgency and intense attention to detail over authentic country spiked with rock spirit.You’ll get to know him not only as a songwriter, but also as a dad, a husband, a surfer, and a believer. After racking up millions of streams independently and canvasing the country with the likes of Muscadine Bloodline and Kip Moore, this approach defines a series of 2021 singles and his forthcoming full-length debut album for Triple Tigers.Jordan is one-of-a-kind and the connection happened immediately in this conversation as we get into to topics like touring in a $300 camper, how the loss of his Father has shaped his life and music, how being an artist has him counting his blessings, the way independent music fans take care of their artists, how he's bringing faith into being a parent, and a whole lot more!For more Jordan Fletcher head over to: www.jordanfletcherofficial.comSONG AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EPISODE: new single 'Death And Taxes' No Simple Road Intro Music Created By ESCAPERFREE SHIPPING from Shop Tour Bus Use The PROMO CODE: nosimpleroadFor 20% off Sunset Lake CBD PROMO CODE: NSR20 For 25% off Electric Fish Lights PROMO CODE: NSRFOR 10% off your first month of Better Help CLICK HEREFor 20% off Grady's Cold Brew PROMO CODE: NSRMUSIC IN THE COMMMERCIALS BY AND USED WITH PERMISSION OF:SPUNJ & ANDREW HENDRYXOUTRO MUSIC BY AND USED WITH PERMISSION OF:CHILLDREN OF INDIGONo Simple Road is part of OSIRIS MEDIA.
