Podcast: Tunes & Tumblers Features Waterparks and a Red Drink

Tunes & Tumblers x Waterparks 2023
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.

Pour yourself a cold one of whatever you’ve got lying around and settle down for a new episode of Tunes & Tumblers, featuring Waterparks’ Awsten Knight and their newest single, “Brainwashed.”

We keep spirits high and out of our glasses this week as we sit down with Waterparks’ very own Awsten Knight to sip an aptly-named, alcohol-free Red Drink. While we shimmy our shoulders to Waterparks’ newest tune, “Brainwashed,” we chat about their astoundingly alphabetical discography, including their upcoming album, Intellectual Property. Between fidget spinner sessions and synesthesia examinations, we examine the cave that 2020’s Greatest Hits was written in and re-living the old stuff, in a bad way. Cheers!
