It’s time for Beginnings, the podcast where writer and performer Andy Beckerman talks to the comedians, writers, filmmakers and musicians he admires about their earliest creative experiences and the numerous ways in which a creative life can unfold.

On today’s show, I talk to musician Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn. Originally from the outskirts of Philly, Mirah moved to Olympia, Washington to attend college, and while there, became part of the local music scene, where she worked with bands like The Microphones and Old Time Relijun. In the late 1990s, she started making music on her own, and her first album You Think It’s Like This but Really It’s Like This [KLP112] was released on K. Mirah’s continued to work with them, and her latest album Changing Light [KLP253/AMR01] was just released and it is spectacular!

Towards the end of April, Mirah came over to the Harlem studio to chat about knish deliveries, counter-cultural consciousness, having pride in your weird family, being present, Schrodinger’s catting it, peace marches, control issues, and social justice. And in the second half of the show, I talk to my friend UCB performer Matt Cutler about the very meaning of what it is to be human. That’s right, folks, we go deep into the foundations of human nature and discuss everything from touching a yellow couch to the eventual death of the universe. It’s epic!

NEW! From Our Friends & Neighbors: Strange Wilds WET 7” (Inimical Records)

Olympia, Washington’s STRANGE WILDS (previously known as Wet) debut with this 4-song EP, ushering in a whirlwind of neck breaking rhythms laced with stop-on-a-dime tempo changes and nausea induced howls. Comprising of members from previous acts such as Sixes, Cult Ritual, Outlook and others, STRANGE WILDS continues the onslaught and doesn’t hesitate to deliver their first lethal blow to fracture the collective skull of what today may be arbitrarily referred to as “Hardcore Punk”… Don’t be an idiot. Just let it go.

Charley says: “I got the K logo tattooed on my arm a few years ago as a homage to some of my favorite artists and bands. I’m a fan for life! Cheers”

Thanks, Charley!

Got a K tattoo of your own? A cool photo you’d like us to see? Sent it to jill(at)krecs(dot)com!

PS: What do you think about a K-in-a-shield temporary tattoo for the youngsters? (or the youngsters at heart?)
