Fruit Bats - Humbug Mountain Song

Fruit Bats - Humbug Mountain Song


This is a moment decades in the making! Fruit Bats have been one of my favorite bands since Mouthfuls came out in 2003 and I started adding “When U Love Somebody” to every single one of my mixtapes. With endless excitement, I’m sharing today that they’ll be performing a special solo set for an intimate audience of just 100 people on July 30 at Hotel Lilien in the Catskills, complete with one-of-a-kind Grillo’s Pickles pizza menu from Paulie Gee. Tickets are sold out but you can join our waitlist here. 

We highly suggest booking a room at Hotel Lilien and hanging out with us by the Solo Stove fire pits late night with the band. The Pizza Party music series is a monthly showcase in upstate NY produced by The Wild Honey Pie and Radio Woodstock, with support from Olipop, New Belgium, Mezcal Rosaluna and Brooklyn Magazine.

Buzzsessions are officially back! We welcomed Al Olender and Amanda Brooklyn to our new home near Woodstock for a meal cooked up by Matt Olley of Little Viking Co. and session directed by Zach Durocher. Watch the full Buzzsession here.

It’s been about three years since we filmed a new episode of our live performance music video series so we wanted to try something a little different. In this episode, we combined our passion for music and food and shared a special vegan meal before recording three tracks with Al Olender, available now on YouTube and all audio streaming platforms. We love her music so much and know you’ll feel the same. Special thanks to Mumgry nut butters and Otherworld pancake and waffle mix for filling up our bellies. It’s good to be back!

David Bowie - Changes

David Bowie - Changes


The Wild Honey Pie has been on a long and winding road since I first hit publish in 2009 as a food blog from my college house in Boulder, Colorado. For over a decade, it’s been the ultimate pleasure to work alongside immensely talented creatives towards a shared vision of supporting the musicians we love through editorial, events and video production.

Starting in 2022 we will no longer be operating primarily as a music blog, but instead move ahead as a music-focused creative agency. It will always be our goal to support musicians as they seek out new audiences and we will work towards that goal by helping them produce videos and visual content with our network of animators, directors and designers.

For those of you who have come to love our experiences, you can expect much more in that department, enabled largely by our brand clients. We will be servicing more companies than ever who are looking to leverage music partnerships to reach fans through our events, content and place in the music industry. Keep an eye here for the latest on our adventures as we aim to bring people together through music.

Adi GuerrerX - Queer Sci Fi Fantasy

Adi GuerrerX - Queer Sci Fi Fantasy


Listening to Adi GuerrerXs track “Queer Sci Fi Fantasy” is like taking a vacation from the horrors of the real world, and blasting off into—you guessed it—a queer sci fi fantasy. The hypnotic synth landscape of the song draws from old-school Moog magic, setting the scene for total immersion. Meanwhile, lush, overlapping vocal harmonies take the track in unexpected directions. Just when you think you’ve figured out the main melody, GuerrerX’s playful choices subvert your expectations in the best way. 

Lyrics like “I like how you don’t need saving” and “I like how you care for other beings” propel this fantasy even further. “Queer Sci Fi Fantasy” paints a picture of a world you want to stay and play in. Delicate vocal layers add human, emotive touches at just the right moments without breaking the semi-robotic sci-fi spell that’s been cast. And once the drum samples kick in, you realize that not only is this fantasy peaceful, beautiful, and spacey-sexy: it’s also fun to groove to. 

Honestly, the world can be a scary place right now, and we all need a break. “Queer Sci Fi Fantasy” is the perfect place to find it. Press play, and melt away into the fantasy, watching the moonrise in a periwinkle sky. Photo by LUX

Dylan Dunlap - Stupid Me

Dylan Dunlap - Stupid Me


Dylan Dunlap's latest single "Stupid Me" broaches loss with kindness, encouraging you to move on. While grappling with the disintegration of friendships, it's far too easy to blame oneself as he does. Dunlap's docile delivery and gentle plucks of his guitar carry us through his thoughts, where he wonders what he could have done differently and if it's too late to pick up the pieces. "Do you hate me, or are you just busy doing well?" he asks, emphasizing the familiar notion that in some ways, being forgotten is what hurts the most. The track swells cinematically with swirling echoes that build to a finite and satisfying end; when Dunlap sings "I'll set you free" for the final time, you believe him. 

On "Stupid Me," Dunlap says: "My girlfriend & I wrote about our shared experiences of drifting apart from the people we love. It’s a painfully confusing thing to go through and I’m proud of the way we turned it into something so hauntingly beautiful. In the past, we’ve both been left spiraling alone in our thoughts and wondering, 'Is there something I could have done?' To me, this song answers that question by introducing the art of letting go and moving on."

Test Subjects - Interstate of Mind

Test Subjects - Interstate of Mind


If you ever cried while listening to “driver’s license,” put on Test Subjects’ “Interstate of Mind.” Like Olivia Rodrigo’s standout hit, “Interstate of Mind” takes place on a long drive, reminiscing about an ex from the summer of being 17. Beyond these similarities, though, the track’s uniquely immersive blend of found sounds, acoustic/electronic instrumentation and cascading melodies feels as fresh and restorative as sudden rain. 

Rain is important to this Test Subjects’ track. The song takes place over the course of a rainy highway drive, setting the scene with the opening lines like “Doing laps on the freeway / On a Sunday / There was no one else on the road / Nothing else to do / Nowhere else to go.” The lyrics throughout are both descriptive as well as delicately poetic. A thunderstorm over the highway becomes “somewhere in the sky there’s an open eye raining down onto me / I don’t really mind / but I can barely see.” 

“Interstate of Mind” unfolds like a highway: smooth and steady, with sudden flashes of color and detail. What seems like a “no thoughts, just vibes” experience evolves into reflecting on a lost relationship before you know it (as these trips so often do). Test Subjects’ vocals are sweet on devastatingly simple lines like, “You put a ding in my bumper / I popped it out by myself / Now you’re wrecking someone else.”

Pressing play on “Interstate of Mind” plunges the listener into that uniquely meditative state you might find yourself in on a long drive. Percussive elements like blinkers and windshield wipers blend with subtle choices in the mix that place you in the driver’s seat of the car; this is a song for headphones. The saxophone playout towards the end is just one example of the endless surprises in store on this fascinating track. You’ll be tempted to keep singing, “Do you think about that summer?” long after “Interstate of Mind” ends—maybe even longer than you ever thought about that ex in the first place.
