Mad Crush
Mad Crush
Two parts June Carter sassing Johnny Cash with one dash of Itzhak Perlman on a midnight hayride, Chapel Hill's Mad Crush sings theatrical, back-and-forth songs between protagonists Joanna Sattin and John Elderkin. Along with NC stalwarts Chuck Garrison (Superchunk, Zen Frisbee), Laura Thomas (Hindugrass, Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle), and Mark Whelan (The Popes, The Veldt), each band member's personality emerges in the saucy, poignant character sketches and full-blown dramas the band unwinds with its songs -- remarkable and fresh storytelling!
Admiral Radio
Admiral Radio
Admiral was once one of America's leading brands. Long but forgotten in the Digital Age, they specialized in one thing: radios. These days, the odds of finding a vintage Admiral are slim to none. That is, unless you are Becca Smith and Coty Hoover, the musical brainchildren behind the melodic duo they call Admiral Radio.

Although music is what brought these two lovebirds together, they didn't realize their talents as songbirds until recently. Both spoke often of their appreciation for earlier times, often feeling like old souls trapped in a new era. It's no wonder that the timelessness of their classic sound is hard to come by these days.

Smith had been playing music her entire life, mainly working to establish herself as a solo artist. Hoover was a self-taught musician and virtuoso, effortlessly excelling at any instrument he picked up. Combining past with present, the two are an unstoppable force of lyricism, haunting melodies, and chemistry.

On an average Sunday, they managed to stumble upon a '42 Admiral Radio. With lipstick and rouge, this little piece of history was restored to its full glory, taking up permanent residence in the duo's living room. Icing on the cake? Back in its heyday, Smith's grandfather won Best Salesman for Admiral in the state of South Carolina.

Could it be divine intervention? Who knows. Admiral Radio possesses a distinct and classic quality that is a diamond in the rough. Their enduring sound invites listeners young and old to gather 'round and experience the beauty of music.
