Electric Lemonade” promises to take listeners on a sonic trip, mixing Psychedelic soundscapes, Hip Hop, and Reggae breaking rules and spreading love! Adoo and Oskee take us on their long strange trip of creating their first LP, hunkering down to learn the lessons that quarantine has been here to teach them, balancing a music career while still holding it down at home, bringing the vibe of the Grateful Dead family to the hip-hop scene, and what it's been like to come from the Dead Family roots into their own trip!

175 - Listening For The Secret With The Owsley Stanley Foundation
No Simple Road is extremely honored to have Starfinder and Hawk from the Owsley Stanley Foundation as our guests this week. The Owsley Stanley Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of “Bear’s Sonic Journals,” Owsley’s archive of more than 1,300 live concert soundboard recordings from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, including recordings by Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin, and more than 80 other artists across nearly every musical idiom. These analog reel-to-reel recordings are nearing the end of their expected shelf lives and will deteriorate and be lost forever if they are not preserved. We talk with the guys about their mission to preserve the legacy of such an iconic part of American Musical history, how Bear saw things differently and used that to create his own technology, the mission behind the Owsley Stanley Foundation and why it matters so much, and a whole lot more. This is Grateful Dead Family here folks! Listen well and let's all lend our hand to this effort.

174 - Down To The Nitty Gritty With Wood & Wire
This week we welcome Tony Kamel from Wood & Wire as our guest! To understand the musical entity known as Wood & Wire, it’s best to toss aside expectations regarding the sounds that might be created by four pickers holding assemblages of wood and wire — specifically acoustic guitar, bass, banjo and mandolin. Yes, this Austin-based quartet’s last album, 2018’s North of Despair, gave them a permanent new adjective — Grammy-nominated — and yes, the category was Best Bluegrass Album. And now they return in 202 with the new album,Wherever it Goes From Here'! Tony hangs with the NSR crew and discusses the evolution of the band, how he personally gets his creative juices flowing to write, how they went about creating the new album, being home for an extended period, and a whole lot more!
