Leslie Merinoff is the co-founder of Matchbook Distilling Co. in upstate New York. This small batch, bespoke distillery comes with the intention of coaxing spirits into being from the ground up. 

Art d’Ecco joins us to talk about his new record, In Standard Definition. A concept album about entertainment. Like channels on an old television set - each song presents an episodic look into this world, our obsession with celebrities and the power they hold over us.  Joining forces with producer/engineer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, New Pornographers, Destroyer) in ocean-side studio The Hive, In Standard Definition sees d’Ecco packing his heftiest punch yet. Through Stewart’s vintage set up, a decoupage of authentic sounds was recorded to 2-inch tape on a 50- year-old console, forming a musical reflection of the era it evokes.
