Chow Down On “Snacky Tunes Volume 2″
In Brooklyn, food culture is intrinsically linked to indie culture. The New York City borough is a hotspot for foodies; it is a place where something as basic as a cup of coffee is treated like a gourmet meal. Brooklyn also has a flourishing music culture with some of the biggest names in indie music calling BK home. When food and music culture merge in one hip place, beautiful things can happen.
Just listen to Snacky Tunes, a deliciously mellifluous radio treat from traveling foodies and twin brothers Darin and Greg Bresnitz. The Bresnitz twins have travelled to obscure corners of the earth as Finger on the Pulse — the music and food ambassadors of Brooklyn. You can listen to their popular food-meets-radio show on Heritage Radio Network. They interview celebrity chefs, play some rad tunes, and throw in a little irreverent humor that will leave you hungry for more.
In conjunction with their indie radio show, the Bresnitz brothers are releasing a record, Snacky Tunes Volume 2, which will be released on June 26th. The album is a free download/stream and features a selection of live performance recordings by Light Asylum, Hands, Warm Ghost, Mark Vetri, and more. This comes on the heels of Snacky Tunes Volume 1, which you can stream now on SoundCloud.
Light Asylum lends their spaced-out, futuristic punch to the recipe. Listen to their contribution, “Dark Allies,” here.
Darin and Greg Bresnitz live in Brooklyn, where they seek out great food and tunes to share with the world. When they aren’t doing their radio show, they are planning the annual community grub party BBQ Blow Outs. The 5th annual party will be held on May 16th at Brooklyn’s Good Company. Food will be provided by Joe Carroll (Fette Sau) and Yvon De Tassigny (St. Anselm), and the event will feature a DJ set by Turing Machine.
