  • Talking weed with Trunkweed

    Talking weed with Trunkweed

    We first checked out Trunkweed after the slack trio’s guitarist/vocalist Brady Kelly sent Managing Editor Baynard Woods an adorable email that implored us to check out their music (“We play post-surf dazy pop music that people seem to really enjoy!”), quietly declared their ambitions (“we have...
