Episode 173: Honyock

Honyock stopped by for Episode 173. Per the band’s website, “Listening to Honyock feels like walking through a post-war home that hasn’t been redecorated since 1975.” The band’s first full-length EP El Castillo, was produced by David Vandervelde (Father John Misty, Jay Bennett) and is out now.

In this episode of the show I chat with Tyler, Chris, Spencer (Mason, was absent on the day of the interview) about how to pronounce the band’s name (Hun-Yawk); how the citizens of Portland settled on “Cootch” instead of “Couch”; the beauty of the Blu Blockers Rapper; how Honey Hunters and a grandfather played a role in naming the band; why you do not want a long name when it comes time to name your band; our confusion over the horribleness of a “dump” cake; and how the band navigates the world of record labels and tours.
