Yellow Springs' Speaking Suns are playing their first show of 2021 at the IndieCraft 2021 beer and music festival in Springfield this weekend. The band came to WYSO's studio to perform some fresh new tunes, plus one from their 2020 album Terrestrial Year, and talked to Excursions host Evan Miller about what they've been up to since the pandemic hit, and what's in store as live music begins to pick up again.

Speaking Suns, alongside In The Pines, Motherfolk, Katawicks, The Story Changes, fellow Yellow Springers Stringus Khan, and more, are performing at IndieCraft 2021 at Mother Stewart's Brewery in Springfield. You can keep with Speaking Suns on their Instagram and Facebook pages.

Evan Miller is a percussionist, lover of sound, and is probably buying too many cassette tapes online right now. Evan got his start in radio in 2012 at WWSU at Wright State University, where he was studying percussion performance. He followed through with both endeavors and eventually landed a lucrative dual career playing experimental music at home and abroad, and broadcasting those sounds to unsuspecting listeners Sunday nights on The Outside. Maintaining a connection to normal music, Evan also plays drums in bands around the area, and hosts WYSO's Midday Music show. When not doing something music-related, Evan is most likely listening to podcasts or watching food videos at home with his cat.
