Lake Street Dive's Mike Calabrese and Akie Bermiss are on the latest episode of the podcast The Show on the Road to chat with host Z. Lupetin of Dustbowl Revival, which you can hear below.

"There are very few things in life that you can depend on," says Lupetin, "and yet since 2004, when they were founded by luminous singer Rachael Price, upright bassist–singer-songwriter Bridget Kearney, high-energy drummer Mike Calabrese, and the recently departed guitarist-trumpeter Mike 'McDuck' Olsen at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, the group has consistently put out virtuosic, heartfelt, harmony-laden, decadently delicious, nerdy dance music that, honestly, only got more beautiful and kinetic when they added keyboardist Akie Bermiss in 2017."

Lupetin goes on to say: "After a year and a half of doomscrolling and fearing for the worst, what I like most about this new record, Obviously, is how sexy it is ... If you have an hour to spare, slip into something comfortable, light some incense, pour yourself a cold cocktail, and put on Lake Street Dive's Obviously, and let the magic happen."

You can do just that by listening to the album and picking up a copy here. You can get tickets to see the band live on tour here.

    Thomas Adès’ Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall for the premiere recording, due April 21 on Nonesuch Records. Dante was first performed at the Royal Opera House as part of Wayne McGregor’s The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet, with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and with designs by visual artist Tacita Dean. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.” The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s performance.
