EDITOR’S NOTE SAMANTHA BAKALL

I love when running errands turns into a great afternoon. Last week, I drove our summer photo editor, Nathaniel Lash, to Tuscola, Ill., dropped him off, drove back to Champaign, went to a meeting, then drove back to Tuscola to get him and drive back. For those of you unfamiliar with the area (which was me up until that point), Tuscola is about a 30-mile drive or so, each way. So in a span of about three hours, I had driven about 120 miles. If you’re wondering why I would do such a thing, I honestly have no idea. But the drive was pleasant, temperature was fair and the sun was shining — it was like a mini road trip. I had heard one thing about Tuscola — they have a handmade/homemade candy and ice cream shoppe called Flesor’s Candy Kitchen. And for my copious amount of sitting in my car doing nothing for two hours, I was going to reward myself with a milkshake. The milkshake was delicious, but we ended up having a surprisingly pleasant time with one of the owners, Devon. Somehow, a malted coffee milkshake turned into a history lesson on the building and the business and a tour of the candy room. It helps that Nathan and I are both particularly loquacious, but it seemed as if we were just in the right place at the right time. Flesor’s has pretty much not changed in years — over 100, to be specific. Back in 1901, Devon’s grandfather, Gus Flesor, came to Tuscola and opened Flesor’s Candy Kitchen. Devon and her sister, Ann, grew up working in the shop, but never intended to get into the family business. Somewhere along the way, things changed. The granddaughters Flesor returned to Tuscola, saw the “For Sale” sign and decided to reopen the store. Nathan and I got a tour of the entire place — complete with the original stools, marble soda fountain, original wood cabinets, booths, etched glass mirrors, marble candy slab and copper pots — and had a fascinating time. We’re definitely going back. But this time we’re going to go on one trip, and we’re going to bike instead of drive. Then I won’t feel so bad about maybe having more than one milkshake.

When was the last time you told your best friend just how much he or she means to you? That’s right: too long ago. Luckily for you, this Friday, June 8, is National Best Friend Day, the perfect time for you to let your closest friend know just how much you value your friendship. If you are the gift-giving type, I suggest a brandnew red kickball. Now that you two have longer legs and stronger quads, you two can take turns rolling easy pitches down the heart of the plate and blasting them toward the heavens. One time my friend’s cousin’s best friend’s dad kicked a kickball so high, it went into orbit. Physical gifts don’t always convey exactly what you want to say, so maybe another great experience together is all you need. If you’ve had your BFF since childhood, then a bike ride around the neighborhood is always fun. Find a nice gravel patch for some totally sweet rear brake action, and have a contest to see who can skid the farthest. A kid at my friend’s cousin’s best friend’s elementary school once skidded for a mile... uphill. But don’t just celebrate the past with your friend — make new experiences, too. You could end your day by attempting what every kid who has ever swung on a swing set wanted to do: go all the way around. Now that you’re an adult, you can use your stronger quads to pump yourself to heights never before reached. It must be possible because my friend told me his cousin’s best friend saw a high schooler do it, and that guy has seen it all. BUZZ STAFF

» Trader Joe’s and everything they sell: I’ve been on a certain enterprise lately about the wonders of TJ’s and all of their products. I want a Trader Joe’s in Champaign. Like right meow. If you’ve ever shopped there, then you must know the absolute glory that is the grocery store of Trader Joe. They have a huge variety of awesome products in about 1/4 of the space of regular grocery stores. They label their foods humorously (i.e. their Italian products have the label “Trader Giotto,” the Mexican products are made by a “Trader Jose,” and so on, and so forth). The people who work there are really nice — they wear Hawaiian shirts! You literally cannot be mistreated by anyone in a Hawaiian shirt. They sell wine for $2. They will do your homework for you (Okay, that last bit might not be correct, but you know, it never hurts to ask). And they have cookie butter. It’s like peanut butter, but a million times better because it tastes like gingersnaps and has 1/3 of the fat content. If you’re listening, God, it’s me, Sam, and I just want some foodstuff heterogeneity within the 10 miles of my abode here. Michael Zhang Art Director

» Toothpaste sneezes: If being an upper-middle class suburban American has taught me anything, it is that there is absolutely nothing worse in the world than sneezing while you’re brushing your teeth. It’s up there with hang-nails and unreachable back itches on the list of the least enjoyable aspects of not having bigger problems to worry about. As our dentists (and the cockney-accented chimney-sweep street urchin that haunts my nightmares) have taught us since we were little, brushing one’s teeth is a vital part of every person’s daily routine, as well as our duty as God-fearing Americans. It fights plaque buildup, keeps our teeth sparkling white and also protects us from communism. I personally brush my teeth twice daily. However, this morning, my routine was interrupted by an unexpected bout of sneezing. They say that if you sneeze with yours eyes open, your eyeballs pop out of your head. Well, that didn’t happen. But my eyes were also not open, which might explain why. But my mouth was. And they never tell you what happens when your mouth is open and full of toothpaste foam when you sneeze. So I’ll tell you now: it’s not a pretty sight. It all happened so fast; I first felt a slight tingling in my netherregions. Then, before I had time to react... BAM! Three sneezes in a row. By the time it was all over, it looked like Mr. Clean had just offed himself all over my bathroom mirror, Hemingway-style. On the bright side, my mirror is now plaque-free, sparkling white and safe from communists.

WEEK AHEAD First day of instruction for summer session II Monday, June 11 Cost: Time, energy, tan skin, impromptu pool parties and fun Where: Campus Instruction for the University’s second summer session begins Monday, which means fun time is over for thousands of students until early August. But it isn’t so bad. By taking a course or two during the summer, you will be able to take it easier than your classmates come the fall and spring semesters. While they are stressing over the latest organic chemistry lab write-up, you’ll be like, “You made alcohol in orgo last week? Is yours a summer 2012 vintage? I didn’t think so.” And then you can leisurely stroll back to your apartment and have a homeworkfree night because you paid the ultimate price over these next eight weeks. — Thomas Thoren, Community Editor

Bonnaroo’s lineup is almost always spectacular, and this year is no different. I’m excited to see Radiohead, Bon Iver, The Roots, Danny Brown, SBTRKT, and Das Racist (and many others) for the first time. The crowd is also sure to be entertaining. The only downside is that I’m not sure how I’m gonna get along being in the hot sun without showering for four days. — Evan Lyman, Music Editor

occurs moments later is a tension-filled sequence of events, but before this, we get a scene that consists of something that almost everyone has experienced during childhood. According to the film’s writer and director, Alrick Brown, this is the kind of scene that is missing from the films we see today. Scenes like this one, that feature young black children experiencing the simplest aspects of childhood. Creating a film that takes place during the Rwandan genocide seems like a daunting task for any filmmaker to take on, but Alrick Brown was up for the task. Kinyarwanda is a film that focuses on the human interaction that takes place during a horrific tragedy. »buzz: In addition to being a director and a writer, you are also a teacher. So how does that come into play? »Alrick Brown: Well, being a teacher, I try to have an objective with all of my films. The films have to be entertaining, but I also approach my storytelling with certain deliberateness as far as when I have an objective, how do I (like in a classroom) get this message across and keep people engaged and entertained? Also, on the production side, I like to work with people who are learning their craft because it makes the process that much more engaging, to be working with people who are also learning and enjoying the process, whether that’s fresh new actors or new crew members.

»buzz: Hotel Rwanda comparisons are inevitable. Do you think that hurt or helped the film? »AB: I have to respect Hotel Rwanda and what it did. It helps the film in a number of ways actually, because people that have seen the film have that imagination of the violence in their heads already, so there is a foundation laid for it. It helps the film in that I have to do something different as an artist to avoid that comparison, and that makes my storytelling a little bit stronger. There is a lot that could be said about Hotel Rwanda, but this film is its own film. It would be interesting to see a world if Hotel Rwanda did not happen — how this film would be perceived. I almost think Hotel Rwanda had to happen when it did because the world would not know what happened during the genocide had not that very Hollywood version of that story been told. »buzz: How did you work under the film’s budget and time constraints? »AB: Most young filmmakers don’t know how to do this just yet, but it’s just to respect limitations. You know that we don’t have much money, and I know that I want to tell very personal stories, and so I had a team and a cinematographer that I had a relationship with, so we could really be very calculated, very economical with our time, with our shooting. I was economical with my writing. Not one character

in the entire film had more than four pages of dialogue. People didn’t have to rehearse to the level of a ‘normal film.’ It was just respecting the limitations on every front. That’s how we were able to get this, having a crew that was talented enough to fix problems when they arose and not to get marred in those problems. »buzz: During the panel discussion, you brought up Pulp Fiction. Are you a (Quentin) Tarantino fan? Are you inspired by him? »AB: I’m a Tarantino fan, I’m a David Fincher fan, I’m a fan of anyone who has a voice. Where I can see their work on screen and know that they did it. I’m a fan of film, so I study everyone and consume as much as possible. I love the bad films that I have seen that have shown me what not to do. I am inspired by Tarantino, but I’m inspired by many. »buzz: I feel like Ebertfest is a film festival for the fans. How important is it to support these kinds of events? »AB: First off, it’s just an honor to be amongst the chosen films that were there. Without film festivals like this, where you can get rid of all the politics and the money, you won’t really have opportunities to really purely enjoy and appreciate films. That is what Ebert provided for us and is providing for these artists. It is absolutely essential for an artist to be able to create, to put that stuff behind them and just focus on the craft.

Don’t pull a Big Lurch

JUNE 7 - 13, 2012

SEE IT NOW: LIKE CRAZY by Will Angelico

T

he story of love seems to be a constant theme in the cinema. Boy falls in love with girl, and girl falls in love with boy. Both get happily married after some sort of struggle and live a relatively hassle-free life until they both die in each other’s arms. When is the last time you heard of this happening to anyone in a non-fictional sense? Exactly. Like Crazy takes a classic love situation and displays a reality that many can relate to. Although it starts out in a similar fashion to most movies of the same genre, the cinematography and events occurring after are nothing of the sort. Falling in love is the easy part. It is almost effortless with Anna and Jacob (Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin), and the gorgeous scenery of the Los Angeles beaches even causes the viewer to fall in love with the characters. However, their love stands the true test when the word “long-distance” becomes the definition of their relationship. Anna is denied entrance to the U.S. because of

her premeditated decision to violate her Student Visa. Until the matter is sorted out legally, Jacob can only see her in person if he travels to London from L.A., where he has just set up an important furniture business. This proves to be an expensive and taxing ritual, usually leaving the two torn at the end of the visits. Love is not always perfect. In fact, most of the time it is painful and incredibly difficult. This movie shows that side. Through the entire struggle, Anna and Jacob hold onto the upbeat memories they created at the beginning of the relationship. Although the movie is fiction, Like Crazy is a real love story. Jealousy and faithfulness are intricate parts to a relationship. A star-studded romantic drama leading up to a million dollar kiss or tragic accident doesn’t capture these moments accurately. If you want a real love story that tugs on your heart strings and leaves you sitting throughout the credits thinking about the coveted feeling of love, go see this movie immediately.

A Summer of Bacon Baking for friends during the summer By Auffy Birjandi

A

nyone who’s stayed in Champaign for a summer knows the drastic changes that take place on campus. The hectic sidewalks and rushing herds of students have died down in exchange for a ghost town consisting of stragglers, summer school prisoners, researchers and part-time job practitioners. Some say goodbye to their roommates, eager to have free reign over the space they shared for an entire school year. The sound of the hustle and bustle outside the apartment door has changed. While some neighbors are moving out with subleasers moving in, others are leaving dorms or Greek life and getting their first taste of apartment style independence.

Experimenting with new and complex recipes is a good excuse to have a bunch of people over for food and drink. For me, last summer was spent experimenting with appetizers and cocktails while lounging on the balcony or patio with friends. This summer I found myself entertaining some drunken boys with bleu cheese stuffed bacon wrapped chicken after a night of debauchery. If you’re looking for a couple snazzy appetizers and dishes to create this summer, take a look at the ones I’ve come across.

So what exactly does one do with this drastic change? Some choose to utilize the more relaxed bar scene in order to drink at nonsensical hours with the sun still high in the sky. Others come to embrace the beauty of summertime apartment living. During the school year, the apartment is merely a place to sleep, shower, eat, study and pregame. It becomes a home base where you go through the mechanical and monotonous motions of your everyday routine outside of work and lecture. Yet the summer brings out all the characteristics that are taken for granted during the academic year by becoming a haven for everything that has yet to be explored.

Appetizer: Goat Cheese & Pesto on Toasted baguette

Cut the baguette along the width into numerous circular or bite-size pieces. Lightly toast the pieces in a toaster oven, on a George Foreman grill, or on a skillet. First spread the goat cheese, then spread a light layer of pesto over the cheese. This appetizer is perfect to serve during a fun happy hour get-together at the apartment. The bite-size pieces of bread allow it to be a conve-

nient finger food that you can easily pair with a bottle of wine. Place it on a classy serving dish to enhance the experience. You get the Bread Company feel without the Bread Company price. Main dish: Bleu Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Chicken (From Rachael Ray’s 30 Minute Meals) This next recipe had my friends waiting for three hours just to eat. While it didn’t take three hours to prepare, when you’re doing your own version of “My Drunk Kitchen,” ingredients end up spilled all over the floor. »1 pack maple smoked bacon »1 pack fresh chicken breast »1 container bleu cheese »Spinach »Arugula (chives work if you can’t find arugula) Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Take your chicken breasts, however many you wish to prepare, and slice the width lengthwise from top to bottom without totally separating the chicken. You are essentially cutting a pocket into the chicken breast.

Chop your spinach and arugula. Mix your greens with the bleu cheese, and then stuff this mixture into the pocket you cut into your chicken. Use pieces of bacon to wrap around the chicken and effectively tighten and seal the stuffing. Another method I’ve discovered (that creates smaller pieces and more quantity) is to cut the breast into long strips of medium thickness, and rather than stuffing the cheese into a pocket, I put the stuffing on one end of the strips and then roll it forwards to the other end like a sushi roll. Wrap the bacon pieces around it accordingly. Put your chicken on an ungreased baking tray and bake for at least 20-22 minutes or until the bacon is dark and crispy and the chicken is cooked through. A lot of us are not used to preparing our own meals. Quite frankly, most people on campus create a horrific mess in the kitchen. Use the summer to practice your hand at cooking, and invite your friends over to test your creations with you. Make up an elegant dining table beforehand to set the vibe. Have them bring the drinks while you supply the food!

Big Lurch eats at Big Grove. What now?

JUNE 7 - 13, 2012

GIVE BIG GROVE TAVERN A TRY

Downtown Champaign’s new restaurant brings locally-sourced ingredients and Midwestern pride to the table Photo by Eric Cox

By Eric Cox

L

ast December, the C-U area said goodbye to Jim Gould’s, a fine-dining restaurant located right in the heart of downtown Champaign on the corner of Neil and Main. Now, we may once again return to this location for our fine-dining fix. Big Grove Tavern, a restaurant that specializes in Midwestern craft cuisine and craft beer, officially opened its doors for lunch and dinner late last week after making renovations to Gould’s old grounds. The changes included enlarging the bar area, something that Big Grove’s General Manager, Michael Johnson, saw as essential to the establishment’s identity. “The bar is such a prevalent part of the restaurant. No matter where you’re at, it gives that sort of ‘tavern’ feel,” Johnson said. The bar features a sizable selection of beer, spirits and wine from all around the world. Unlike their international array of alcoholic

drinks, the food offered at Big Grove features locally sourced ingredients from area farmers. “It’s more challenging to source everything, but there’s a pride that comes into your work when you know the people that are growing the ingredient you’re using,” said Jessica Gorin, the Executive Chef of Champaign’s newest restaurant. “We’re really trying to be an integral part of the community with purchasing locally and really being involved,” Johnson said. Johnson’s aim to have Big Grove become an important part of the community is not only showcased in their motto, “Eat, drink and think local,” and their ability to boost local farmers’ sales, but it also shines through when you look at the affordability of their menu items. Entrées in the Big Grove Tavern’s lunch and dinner line-ups range from $9-$22, a pretty fair offering when compared to Jim Gould’s old entrée price range of $10-$39.95.

Besides being fairly priced, the items on Big Grove’s menu are meant to “hit home” in a sense. “Everything you see is going to be nostalgic comfort foods that have a connection to the area but are done in a way that maybe you’ve never seen them done before,” Gorin said. These comfort foods that Chef Gorin mentions include decadent cornbread, handmade tater tots and even one of the most favored foods in American history: mac ‘n’ cheese. “It’s not just your typical everyday mac ‘n’ cheese — locally sourced cheeses, melted leeks, fried shallots, a garlic breadcrumb and cheese topping. I really think it’s one of those dishes we’re going to be known for,” Johnson said. The Tavern’s general manager forgot to mention the sprinklings of bacon in his otherwise adequate description of what I would call the best mac ‘n’ cheese I’ve ever eaten in my twenty-plus years of experience consuming the revered classic. Priced at $14, the mac ‘n’ cheese is the most expensive thing on Big

Grove’s lunch menu, but considering the helping brought to your table can easily be shared with others as an appetizer, it’s well worth the cost. But if you’re still on the fence about paying that much for mac ‘n cheese, other more affordable lunch menu items include a grilled steak sandwich for $11, a beer brined pork loin horseshoe for $12 and a specialty-made tavern burger for the same price. Really, no matter what you get, you’re promised an excellent meal due to the amount of effort that Big Grove’s employees put into preparing their patrons’ food and good service. “When there’s a personal pride at each level of the establishment, then I think that the product you get out on the other end is going to be exactly what you want,” Gorin said. So if you haven’t already, go out and give Big Grove Tavern a try. Thanks to their excellent food at an affordable price, you won’t be sorry that you did. I dare you to “eat, drink and think local.” buzz

7. Whip it. Do do do do do, whip it good Need a fair amount of breeze to whip the hair out of your face? Jump on the back of a motorcycle or Vespa, preferably with a cute boy or girl on it. Keep in mind that breeze is the desired object of affection. You can simply push off the cutie and take the Vespa for yourself in order to feel the cool, refreshing wind anytime you like.

8. Slumping in the shade Cool off in the shade. Sit beneath a shady tree, below umbrellas or under a pastel-colored parasol, twirling it like a modern Mary Poppins. A spoonful of sugar may help you handle the heat as well.

9. All screaming for ice cream Summer is the perfect time for all things ice cream. Pouring lemonade or Coca-Cola into the plastic popsicle containers will create homemade ice cream that will thrill many thousands of taste buds.

10. Plain stupid ...will be the response you get if you ever tell anyone about this idea. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Sticking ice cubes down your pants may not be the smartest idea, but it will chill you to the bone.

Hot child in the city 15 ways to stay cool in C-U this summer

ith patches of soaked, sweaty shirt sticking to you, the heat may be starting to haunt your sanity. As sweltering temperatures increase well into the 90 degree range, warding off the ChampaignUrbana heat will require some creativity. Don’t have enough brain power because of these sizzling temperatures? Buzz has you covered with 15 creatively silly and naively stupid ideas for these next few summer weeks.

1. Fee-fi-fo-freeeeeeeze With heat billowing into an apartment, the lack of air conditioning can provide a perfectly restless night of sleep. Pouring water over oneself can become a cumbersome task throughout a hot, sticky summer night. Alas, taking your Superman or rocket bedsheets, wetting them with cold water and freezing them may just do the trick. Laboring over meticulous research the next day? Handling hyperactive, sugar-fed preschoolers? Taking on 8

If you are going to get fired from your local ice cream shop, go out with a bang. Stick your head under an ice cream machine for a cool treat in the dead heat of summer while gaining your freedom back in one fell swoop.

12. Shake, shake, shake One tablespoon of sugar, half a cup of milk and a handful of berries in a Ziploc bag should be placed in a larger gallon-sized plastic bag filled with ice cubes and salt. Shake up your world by shaking together the ingredients in this very delicious ice cream-tastic dessert.

13. To all the floor-dwellers giants? Very doable, especially with a night of wonderful sleep under those frozen sheets.

lounge or read an exciting summer book while you stay cool as a cucumber.

2. Scandalous party for one, please.

4. Two childhood favorites in one

Being weighed down by too many layers of tank tops can escalate the heat-induced summer aggravation as well. Get rid of those layers, be proud of your own body and enjoy the freedom of sleeping in the nude. Who will ever know, anyway? Feeling the ripple of breeze brush over your naked frame while you giggle at your own dare-devilish antics will take the weight off of your shoulders, literally.

Miss nap time? Cuddling amidst a mound of blankets whenever you felt like it? You can always blow up an inflatable kiddy pool, fill it up with bags of ice and curl up in the water to take an afternoon nap. Don’t forget to wear your Nemo floaties!

3. Utilizing the “I’m a really, really broke college student who does not have air conditioning in my apartment” excuse and relishing in it. Need we say more? Possibly. Bumming air conditioning off of University buildings will help you de-sweatify. The Union is a perfect place to

Laying on or collapsing onto your tiled floor will just seem better with frozen bags of veggies all over your body. Kill two birds with one stone: cool yourself off and thaw some veggies for that glorious stir-fry you are about to make.

14. Adventure is out there

Become the princess or prince of your own abode with tons of tower fan turrets. Building your own alligator-filled moat may be more difficult.

Following the advice of Pixar’s movie Up and drinking horchatas — the cinnamon-spiced milky, creamy, cooling beverage — will incite you to go on many such adventures. Climbing over rocks and swimming in Champaign’s Boneyard Basin will not be a dangerous feat after an invigorating drink like a horchata from Maize. ¡Olé!

6. Let us give you the skinny

15. Bearing the barefoot

No fear — just jump off a pier. Embrace the defiant rebel inside of you and go skinny dipping for an adrenaline-pumping summer activity. Strip off those tank tops and dive into some water — no sharkinfested waters or algae-covered rocks, por favor.

Walking barefoot isn’t only confined to the beaches. While being wary of scorching pavement, going barefoot on the dew can sprinkle your mornings with a wonderful coolness that can start any day right.

5. Living out the princess/prince fantasy

This is the babbler

catching up with ...

Sonny Stubble

by Evan Lyman

rolling in right now. Other than those 12, we have probably four other originals and we have about six new ones on top of that. At least one, maybe two of those songs will be ready for Thursday. CJ: We’re probably going to go back in and record again in the fall. We’ll be ready to release this one in August. »buzz: Do you have a name for the album yet? JW: There’s lots of tentative names. We’re shooting for something like “Gettin’ It In” (laughs), but maybe not that. What was the other one we came up with ... something about mustaches? CJ: We’ll see. There’s a lot of potential names, but we shouldn’t start promoting any of them until we have a better idea of what it’s gonna be. JW: That’s true, but we can tell funny jokes. There’s a really good mustache one... CJ: Crusty Mustache. We weren’t really serious about that.

S

onny Stubble’s origins can be traced back to their song “20 Long Miles,” which John Statten wrote for his pop music theory class. When he performed the song in front of his classmates, he caught the ear of Cody Jensen. Jensen was impressed; so much so that three years later, Jensen contacted Statten about playing music together. Statten invited Jensen to drum with him and the guys he had been playing with (Jud Wellington and Matt Crain), and Jensen brought along his friend Charlie Harris to play bass. Since then, the five-piece has released an EP, played Summer Camp, and have an album in the works. Buzz sat down with Jensen and Wellington to talk about the band, their past, their upcoming album and their show at Mike ‘N’ Molly’s on Thursday, June 7. »buzz: Were you guys in any bands prior to Sonny Stubble? Jud Wellington: I was in a cover band when I was an undergrad. This band I’ve had the most fun with, and feel like I’ve produced more stuff that’s worth listening to than any group I’ve been in before. Cody Jensen: Good, you should say that… JW: I mean that! I’m not just saying that for this damn thing! (laughs) »buzz: Any original bands or mostly just covers? JW: I was in one band where we played more original instrumental stuff. We were called The Rhythm Section. CJ: That’s real original, Jud. JW: Seriously. I mean, it was all original music

but no vocals. That’s what I like about this band; we do a lot of vocal harmonies. CJ: This is actually the only kind of mainstream band I’ve ever been in. I played in an African band, a Brazilian band, bluegrass bands and stuff like that. But kind of like Jud, with those bands we may have had our own arrangements of traditional tunes or covers, but this is the first group that I’ve played in that was focused on original material. »buzz: What do you guys do outside of the band? JW: I work for the university. I was a music T.A., and now I’m a fellow. CJ: I accompany dance classes at U of I, and I teach private lessons. »buzz: What kind of music did you guys listen to growing up? JW: When I was in high school and I was a little hippie, I listened to a lot of Phish. When I was in undergrad I listened to and studied a lot of jazz. I listened to enough to understand it but not to play it like a “real jazz person.” Now, I listen to a lot of different stuff. Delta Spirit and their other projects like Middle Brother. The Wood Brothers are probably one of the most influential groups on our band. We all listen to the Wood Brothers a lot. CJ: Yeah, everyone in our band loves The Wood Brothers. JW: Also, The Band has been really influential on us, too, I think. CJ: When I was young, I pretty much listened to the music that my brother listened to. It was the ‘90s, so a lot of alternative, whatever

that means. Then later I got exposed to a lot of classic rock and stuff; my dad had a big record collection that I started looking through. That was when I discovered The Band, too, which was like an awakening for me. Then I started getting into folk and bluegrass. Then my second awakening was when my fiancée (who was my girlfriend at the time) introduced me to The Wood Brothers. »buzz: So you guys are working on an album, correct? JW: We are working on one. We recorded as a group about a month ago, about 12 tracks. So now we have all the takes that we’re gonna go in and finish up within the next couple days. CJ: And then it’ll just be like the design, duplication and post-production stuff. »buzz: Where’d you guys do the recording? JW: Our good friend Garrison Frick is an audio engineer. He’s a grad student here, and he’s really good at what he does, so we got hooked up with all the cool Krannert gear. CJ: Yeah, we recorded in a TV studio at Krannert. It was interesting because there’s all this really nice equipment, but there’s not necessarily a recording studio there, so we kind of had to build it as we went. We spent the whole first day making the studio basically. »buzz: So are the 12 songs you’ve done the 12 that are going to end up on the album? CJ: I think we’re gonna stick with 12 for the album. JW: Yeah, but we’ve got a bunch of new songs

»buzz: I’ll make sure to put that down. So who writes most of the songs? JW: Matt and John write most of the tunes, and I write some of the tunes. We all kind of have different styles of our writing, and you can kind of hear it, I think. CJ: Usually when the song starts it doesn’t take too long to distinguish who wrote it if you’ve listened to us. Usually the songwriter is the lead singer on the song, but that’s not always the case. Jud wrote one called “15 Minutes” that Matt sings, just because Matt was a better fit for it. JW: Yeah, we bring the song to practice and then let Sonny write the rest of it. CJ: Exactly, and it’s kind of in that process that we toss it around and see who fits best as the singer. JW: We always give John a hard time for his “country stylin’s.” And Matt’s famous line is “take the song and strip it way down.” CJ: Yeah, so there’s one person that comes up with the frame of the song, but there’s a lot that happens after that. JW: We probably yell at each other the most in practice for playing too many notes. We all get a lot of crap for that. CJ: I never get any crap for that. I always play the perfect amount of notes (laughs). »buzz: So at the show, are you guys gonna be playing mostly the new songs? JW: Yeah, we’ll probably play that, we’ll probably play some of our older stuff (laughs). CJ: I’m sure we’ll play everything from the new album that’s going to be coming out. We have almost two hours of original music, but we’ll mix in some covers that we do. »buzz: Who do you guys like to cover? CJ: We have like three or four Wood Brothers songs that we do now. We do older Otis Redding covers, a Paul Simon cover. »buzz: Any The Band? CJ: When it’s called for, we do “The Weight.” It can be overdone, though, so we don’t write it into the set list. We do “Ophelia” fairly regularly. buzz

MUSIC

getting to know ...

Gospel Music

ospel Music, the folksy indie-pop endeavor of Owen Holmes, uses simple lyrics and acoustic instrumentation to win the hearts of listeners. With an EP and LP, and another on the way, Gospel Music continues to create candid tunes, each more honest than the last. Holmes and his touring crew are making their way to Mike ‘N’ Molly’s this Friday, and buzz was able to chat with him about his music, his lyrics and even his other band, Black Kids. »buzz: Do you write and record all the songs for Gospel Music? Owen Holmes: Yeah, I make the records — the two that I put out last year and the year before. I did all the instruments and wrote everything, 10

and then obviously there’s a female singer on a lot of the songs, so I don’t do that obviously, but I do everything else. And then live I have a full band, so we’re more of a band than a solo act live. »buzz: How did you choose who did the female parts on your Duets EP? OH: Honestly, they were some of my favorite singers. Magnetic Fields is my favorite band of all time, so getting Shirley [Simms] from that band was pretty thrilling, and then I’ve loved Camera Obscura for years. I won’t pretend like one or two people didn’t return my email about it, but generally, I just went through my record collection and picked out my favorite female singers, and in one case a male singer,

and asked them. And to my surprise, they were up for it. »buzz: So is that something you really wanted in your music, having that contrast between the male and female voice? OH: Yeah, it is. I guess mainly because I don’t think anyone really wants to listen to just my voice for very long. I think a nice, pretty girl’s voice is a nice foil to my low gargle, or whatever I do. »buzz: You’re the bassist for Black Kids as well. Is that still a thing or are you mostly just doing Gospel Music now? OH: Yeah it’s still a thing, at least in theory. We’ve just been writing our second album for, it’s been, like three years now. It’s taken a little longer than we thought it would [laughs], but

we’re just taking our time with it and making sure it’s gonna be as good as we want it to be. So in the mean time, it’s been great because I’ve had more time to record and tour with Gospel Music, so it’s worked out perfectly. »buzz: I’ve listened to both Black Kids and Gospel Music, and I’ve drawn the conclusion that they’re about polar opposites sonically. How did that happen? OH: In the Black Kids songs I was writing the bass parts, which I took a lot of pride in, but it was Reggie, the lead singer, who was doing most of the songwriting, so that’s the music that he wants to make, and I think it’s great. But I think the music I want to make is a little bit different, which is Gospel Music. On the other hand, I think both he and I cut out the same aesthetic in that we like short, verse-chorus

pop songs. So while they might be recorded a little bit differently, it’s really kind of the same sensibility. »buzz: How is the recording different? OH: I guess Black Kids relies more heavily on synthesizers, whereas I probably take more advantage of, at least for the last record, more quirky instruments so to speak. Acoustic instruments. Although, with my new songs it’s sounding less acoustic-y. I’ve been listening to a lot of The Smiths, so that’s kind of my new obsession. Also, going back to how it’s different sorts of recording — I’m not going to say how much Black Kids spent on their record, making it, but it’s a fair amount of money — a really nice studio with a great producer whereas I made this thing in my apartment, and it probably sounds like that, but I’m okay with that. »buzz: What are your musical and lyrical influences? OH: Magnetic Fields is definitely the biggest and this band Hefner, who, the guy sings on one of the songs on Duets. They both have been big for me. And lately it’s been old British bands like The Smiths and even Pulp, the 90s British band. Just really any lyricists who are simple but clever. I don’t really go for abstract lyrics. I feel like most lyrics I hear these days are really abstract, like, you have no idea what the song is about. Maybe I’m just a simple-minded person, but I like to know what a song is about, you

know? And it can still be clever and have twists and all these poetic devices, but personally I don’t want to hide behind this cloud of abstraction. I’d rather write a song that’s more direct. »buzz: Do you think that makes it more relatable? Being precise rather than abstract? OH: That’s a really good question. Yeah, in fact, I remember writing a song and wondering if this is getting too specific. Obviously the broader something is, the more chance there is of everyone relating to it. But I guess I’d rather err on the side of doing something genuine but also direct, versus something that just seems like a bunch of words strung together. I mean, I like Bob Dylan just as much as anyone else, but [laughs]… like, come on! »buzz: Is that a main contrast between Black Kids and Gospel Music? OH: Lyrically, I don’t think they’re really that different — a bit, but I don’t think they’re on opposite ends of the spectrum. Reggie from Black Kids (who’s my best friend by the way), we have a lot of the same influences and I know he loves simple, clever, direct pop songs as much as I do. So I don’t think there’s a huge difference. I think the bigger difference comes in the way it sounds, just the instruments that are used. »buzz: About your album (How To Get To Heaven

From Jacksonville, Florida, 2011): considering it’s named after Jacksonville, what kind of role did the city have in influencing the album? OH: Well, I’ve lived there for 31 years — my whole life — and there aren’t songs about Jacksonville per se, but for instance, the lead single, “This Town Doesn’t Have Enough Bars For Both Of Us.” I mean, I didn’t sit down and say, “I want to write a song about Jacksonville,” but that song was about just running into an ex during a night out in your small town. With most of my songs, I kind of have to exaggerate to make them a little more interesting than they would be, but with that one, this girl and I were literally going back and forth between two bars. One was called Wall Street, and one was called Birdy’s. Those are kind of, at least at the time, the two bars in the neighborhood that everyone went to, so, I don’t know. Almost everyone can relate to running into an ex-girlfriend or exboyfriend at a bar, but just imagine if there were only two bars in your neighborhood! »buzz: So is How To Get To Heaven From Jacksonville, Florida kind of a “getting out of a small town” kind of thing? OH: You know what? I hadn’t thought of that, but I like that. Yeah, totally. That’s great. Nice! »buzz: Is there anything special about your live show? OH: Well, I definitely don’t want anyone to have

the impression that it’s just me, just another white guy with an acoustic guitar — that sounds awful to me. So yeah, it’s a full band with bass, drums, guitars and keyboards. I guess like most bands do, we just kinda recreate the album for the live setting. »buzz: Does it sound different live than it does on the record? OH: [Laughs] It probably sounds better because the guys I have playing with me can play their instruments better live than I could while recording myself. So yeah, it’s a good team. And it’s probably more upbeat than the record. Probably a little more lively and bouncy. »buzz: Do you have any new Gospel Music material on the horizon? OH: Yep, I am pretty much done writing the next LP ... I’m just starting to record it, and we’ve got a January/February release date scheduled. »buzz: So you’ll be playing some of that at the show? OH: I’ve really just written the songs, and I haven’t started to record them yet to show the other guys, but we’re playing one new song at least, called “Candy Cigarettes.” To catch “Candy Cigarettes” and the rest of Gospel Music’s repertoire in the flesh, head to Mike ‘N’ Molly’s on Friday, June 8.

“Metal on Metal”--what’s that sound?

What is on your summer reading list? W

ith all the free time many of us have now that it’s summer, not to mention the ample sunlight, there is no better time to make progress on those books you’ve been meaning to pull off your shelf. Summer beach reading is typically the domain of lighter fare, but many people in C-U seem to see this season as an opportunity to tackle longer, more difficult reads they haven’t managed to complete. A common goal is to finish David Foster Wallace’s 1,079-page novel. And why not? You have all summer to wrap your head around his genius, dense novel that features nearly 100 pages of footnotes. Also, he grew up in Champaign County, so you owe it to yourself to read the work of our greatest products. If you need a reading partner or a thousand, the website Infinitesummer.org has a reading schedule and discussion posts for people to follow every year beginning in June and running until September.

Michelle Bourgeois master’s in library and information science

“There’s so many. Right now I’m reading ‘If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler,’ by Italo Calvino, so hopefully I’ll finish that one soon. ‘Infinite Jest’ has been on my list forever. I’ve tried it and failed. I’m hoping to try it again. My focus (in graduate school) was youth services librarianship, so I have a lot of young adult and children’s books I’ve been meaning to read. I’ve been reading those as well. One of my young adult books I’m reading is Carter Finally Gets It, and that’s good for teen boys, so I’ve been trying to read up on a bunch of those in order to be able to give better recommendations.” Stumped? Find the solutions in the Classifieds pages.

“Dostoyevsky. That’s all. My goal is to accomplish a Dostoyevsky novel. I’ve just read snippets here and there. I want to read The Brothers Karamazov. If I get through that: Notes from the Underground. A couple of my friends are doing Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. I read it last summer, actually — very good.”

Luigi Marini research programmer at NASA

“I have a lot of technical books on my summer list. It’s all work-related stuff; it’s really boring. It’s all computer science stuff. On my side table is Catspaw. It’s a sci-fi book by (Joan D.) Vinge.”
