Late last year, Honeycut released their debut album The Day I Turned to Glass, a fantastic record that found them on year-end “best of” lists from a variety of publications. It’s easy to understand why the album has caught so many ears, thanks to their catchy mixture of pop, hip-hop and soul music filtered through analogue keyboards, live bass and an MPC. What makes this album so rewarding on subsequent listens, though, is the quality of the songwriting, which is attributable to the caliber of the musicians behind it.
A few weeks ago we were fortunate enough to spend some time with Bart, Herve, Tony and Etienne to discuss the project’s origins and how it evolved from some studio experimentation by three talented veterans into a full-fledged band with a great record and a fantastic live show. We interviewed the guys at Annie’s Social Club before their show in late December. We recorded their performance that night and have included a live version of “Exodus Honey” in this week’s episode.
As we announced previously, we’re pleased that Honeycut will be headlining the next The Bay Bridged Presents concert, a benefit show next Thursday:
The Ebb & Flow
Cafe du Nord
9pm, $8-15 (sliding scale)

It will be a great night of music for a terrific cause. Plus, we expect there will be a raffle and other fun stuff too!
While you’re waiting for the show, head on over to Insound and pick up The Day I Turned to Glass or grab it on iTunes. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed. For more information about the band, head over to their MySpace page or their web site.
Thanks again for listening and thanks for helping to spread the word about The Bay Bridged! We’ll be back next Tuesday with another great local band!
