Welcome back to an outrageously packed edition of Tuesdays With Lazerbeak! It brings me great joy to share with you the 20th episode of the Tuesdays With Lazerbeak podcast this week. Today’s incredibly special guest is none other than Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Volcano Choir, Big Red Machine, DeYarmond Edison, and a million other awesome projects (believe me, we get into all of it). Aside from that he’s one of my favorite people and a truly lovely human being. Can’t thank Justin enough for being game to drop by back in January and chop it up with Jeyca and I for nearly two whole hours. Here we are at the end of the marathon interview.
You can listen to the entire thing on the Soundcloud player below or go right HERE to listen on whatever platform you listen to your podcasts on. This is by far one of my favorite interiews yet. So much ground covered. Check it out and pass it around if you get a second this week. Thanks for listening!
And now for some more new music! Last week we announced Night Stone, the new house/R&B-inspired project from LA-based producer ICETEP and myself, and this week we’ve got a brand new song to play for you before the full album drops on May 15th. Huge shouts to the good folks at MXDWN for premiering second single “Be Loved” which features the phenomenal vocals of MMYYKK (who you’ll recognize as a member of the best MN band ever, astralblak). MMYYKK absolutely blessed us with this one. Check it out below or anywhere you stream/purchase music right HERE.

And if you missed the Night Stone debut last week, make sure to check out first single “Conquer Time” featuring guest vocals from one of my all-time favs, Sophia Eris. So incredibly pumped about this whole entire project. We’ll be dropping new heat on you every week until the album is out next month, so definitely stay tuned.

Speaking of last week (SEGUE!!!), on Friday we premiered a new weekly show called #DoomtreeTV and you can check out the entire first episode below. Learn how to hang a shelf with Sims, get a tour of Cecil’s newly renovated studio, make a banana smoothie with Dessa, and go deep inside the Doomtree Vault for some blasts from the past. I’m so excited about this new format and all the possibilities that come along with it. The show is made possible and presented by the good folks at Century Link Fiber. Learn more about the work they’re doing right HERE and check out Episode 1 below!
DOOMTREE TV – Episode 1
We’re very excited to roll out Episode #2 of Doomtree TV this Friday at the same 6pm PT / 8pm CT / 9pm ET time from the Doomtree Records YouTube page. Make sure to use the hashtag #DoomtreeTV to send in questions for this week’s episode. We’ll be critiquing your kids’ artwork on this next one, so def use the hashtag and send us a pic if you have anything to share. We’ll be hosting the live premiere and all the previous episodes at this website right HERE.
And speaking of new shows (SEGUE II!!!), every Thursday evening at 7:45pm CT you can catch Dessa’s Show of Force Majeure live stream on her Instagram Live right HERE. Don’t forget the strictly enforced cocktail-attire-from-the-waist-up/sweatpants-and-slippers-from-the-waist-down dress code. See you there this Thursday!
Alright that’s it for this week’s post. I’ll be back next week with another new Night Stone single and a grip ton of Bonus Jams. In the meantime, I hope you’re all staying safe, staying inside, and staying healthy. So much light and love to you and yours. Keep on hanging in there and being kind to yourself. I’ll see you Friday night for another episode of Doomtree TV, or else next Tuesdays for another round of TWL!
