W. Kamau Bell is an incredibly talented comedian and social commentator. He co-hosts a podcast titled 'The Field Negro Guide to Arts & Culture' with legendary musician Vernon Reid (from the rock band Living Colour). Laughspin Magazine refers to him as: “One of our country’s most adept racial commentators with a blistering wit and a willingness to say what you quickly realize you’ve always thought. He is relentlessly intelligent, fusing references to create a rich expression of incredulity in a post-Obama world.” Providing music for this episode is a psychedelic southern rock band from Austin, TX named Smoke and Feathers. Austin Psych Fest writes: “When four bearded, long-haired White dudes walk on stage with amps even taller than they are, you can bet your life savings that you’re about to hear some serious stoner metal. Their songs groove and have memorable melodies; the vocals are pleasant; their bassist has one of the meanest tones I’ve ever heard; and the occasional theremin solos were a nice touch.” Smoke and Feathers share 2 songs from their lastest EP, Midnight Choir.
