The Dark Stuff Podcast 108: Drakes Hotel

The Dark Stuff Podcast #108 features an interview with and music by Omaha duo, Drakes Hotel. Drakes Hotel is Amy Drake and Chris Y, and together, they have recorded four albums and an EP. The band's music has drawn comparisons to artists like Cocteau Twins, Mazzy Star, The Raveonettes, and Psychadelic Furs. Chris and Amy are married and have been making music together for over a decade. After stints in Seattle and Portland, the duo made Omaha home.

I discovered Drakes Hotel by accident -- seeing them open for Crocodiles -- and have been a fan ever since. Chris and Amy came down to the bunker for an interview, and I learned an awful lot about this talented twosome. For example, the band has had its music appear in TV shows such as Being Human and Lost Girl on the SyFy Network. You may already know the music without realizing it!
