The latest Kyle Meredith With… kicks off New Year’s Eve weekend with a triple-dose of turn-back-the-clock rock interviews. Sarah Bettens of K’s Choice talks about the band’s 25th anniversary live album, working on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and their brand-new, television tie-in record, Love = Music. Jill Sobule shares how Nostalgia Kills ties in with the stage show, #fuckseventhgrade, and revisits the time her nemesis said no artist can write anything good after 40. And finally, Tracey Thorn explains the inspiration behind the tracks on Record, recalls her past experiences working with both Warpaint and Corinne Bailey Rae, and weighs in on whether we’ll see another Everything But the Girl reunion.
