In this episode Soundcheck revisits a few recent favorite segments:

First: Sarah Jarosz is just 22, but she’s already made a mark on the folk and bluegrass scene thanks to her deep bluegrass knowledge and exceptional instrumental skills. The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter from Texas plays live in the Soundcheck studio.

Then, comedian Kurt Braunohler talks about his debut comedy album How Do I Land?, and plays three favorite songs as part of Soundcheck's Pick Three series.

And, British electro-pop artist and producer Ebony Bones has a flair for larger-than-life musical performances. Her tendency toward the flamboyant earned her a spot opening for Cee Lo Green a few years back. Hear -- and see -- why when she performs live in the Soundcheck studio.

Comedian Kurt Braunohler Talks Indie Rock And Picks Three

This segment originally aired on Aug. 30, 2013.

Kurt Braunohler recently released his debut album through Kill Rock Stars -- an indie label that also has on its roster bands like The Decemberists, Sleater-Kinney, Deerhoof, and Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. But Braunohler’s album, called How Do I Land? isn’t just a first for him – it’s also the label’s first-ever comedy album.

The comedian and host of the podcast The K Ohle with Kurt Braunohler joins us to share three tracks in our series Pick Three, and to talk about the confluence of music and comedy, his college punk band (called "Como Safeway") and how writing standup comedy is like writing songs.
