Podcast: Tunes & Tumblers Features Transviolet and a Crashed Breath of Fresh Air

Every other week, Anthony Kozlowski pens the Atwood Magazine column Tunes & Tumblers, pairing new and classic albums with cocktail recipes. He quickly found however that drinking alone is a sad business. So he invited his friends into a recording booth to aid in mixing delicious drinks and to discuss the music that they all love. Strap on your headphones and enjoy a cold one on us.

On this week’s episode of the Nobel Peace Prize winning podcast, Tunes & Tumblers (it’s true but don’t look it up), pop-rock band Transviolet’s Sarah McTaggart and Judah McCarthy join the Tunes & Tumblers regulars. We talk about learning to feel joy and playfulness in your body and spin their (aptly named) upcoming album BODY, out March 24. All the while we sip on a cocktail that evoked one of Kaylyn’s most poetic lines yet, “the ship sometimes wrecks, but at least you’ve still got a popsicle to eat while you’re there.” Join us at the bar this week for a little beach volleyball and don’t forget your ID.

Check out our newest episode of Tunes & Tumblers on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. Cheers!
