Episode 217: Mikey Freedom Hart

Download

Mikey Freedom Hart came by Going Off Track with guest host Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem) to discuss his solo project Ex Reyes, what it’s like playing live with everyone from The Cranberries to Bleachers along with┬áthe intricacies of sandwich culture. We also get nostalgic for the grunge movement, discuss why clowns are scary and wonder what it would be like to be a Juggalo. “I chose the name Ex Reyes because it has a lot to do with having a lot of New York and New Orleans influence in me as a musician, specifically Spanish music of the seventies so I wanted to access that reference somehow,” Hart says when asked how he got his solo project’s moniker. But don’t worry about the pronunciation, this podcast is all about the vibes – and there are some pretty good ones here, folks.
