Thunderchief – King of the Pleistocene
-dedicated to Curtis Payne
Rik Surly, Erik Larson
“Synanthrope” is the latest THUNDERCHIEF album to be released straight to Digital on Friday, December 3, 2021 (The Last 2021 Bandcamp Friday!).
Physical media release is planned for early 2022.
The band took a different direction in writing “Synanthrope”, almost as a direct response to artists who feel they have to belong in a particular “box” when writing/releasing music. By no means does this mean it’s better, it’s just a more relaxed approach to staying in the now.

StudioB is starting to roll back into form after many months of spotty releases. The last year was hard on everyone, and the creative community was gut punched as venues closed and artists did whatever they could to remain productive and inspired. This episode features new music from these Richmond-area artists, all released in 2021, much of it worked on during lockdown in 2020.

Ink To Spill is what has been described as a “virtual band”, with songwriter Bob Sauer living in the Tidewater area of Virginia and the rest of the band spread out around the country including areas such as Seattle and Chicago. But they all come together to make music. And they work with the RVA-based Marketing Mixtape . Bob talks about getting the band together, dealing with the pandemic when they were already something of a virtual band separated by geography, inspiration and the creative process. Also hear Ink To Spill songs Hyd’n (latest single), Lenny and Chalk Lines
