Uniform formed in New York City in 2013 when old friends Ben Greenberg and Michael Berdan reconnected and realized that theyhad evolved to a similar place musically. Wanting as intimate an experience as possible, they decided to keep the project a two-man show, eschewing a live rhythm section for programmed drums and low-end synths, augmented with Greenberg’s guitar and Berdan’s vocals.
Michael and Ben stopped by All Independent Reno studio a few weeks ago before they performed at Holland Project with local openers Solterona and Young Deathwish.
Here’s episode 23 with Cody Rea from Bluff Caller!
Cody Rea stopped by the All Independent Reno studio to talk about Bluff Caller’s album The Desert Party and their benefit concert for Planned Parenthood March 4th at Cargo.
Bluff Caller consists of members Cody Rea (lead vocals, guitars, keyboards), Spencer Mead (guitars, keyboards, vocals), Dominic Kelly (drums, vocals) and Greg Rea (bass guitar, vocals).
Bluff Caller infuses R&B drenched alternative with a rock and roll foundation to produce a wild yet precise embodiment of a West-Coast alternative/rock group. Sonically, they begin with solid, charging guitar work, coupled with atmospheric keyboard arrangements, driven by a complex but disciplined rhythm section. With provocative lyrics and tightly arranged vocal harmonies, Bluff Caller creatively articulates experiences and emotions common to their Y-Generation.
The following songs by Bluff Caller are featured on this episode:
“Spoils” from The Desert Party
“Same Ground” from The Desert Party
Bluff Caller will be headlining a benefit concert for Planned Parenthood at Cargo Reno Saturday March 4th 2016.

Here’s episode 21 with Kristina Esfandiari with the band Miserable!
Kristina was awesome to talk to before her show Feb. 7th at Holland Project in Reno. She is the front woman for Miserable as well as the “doom metal” band King Woman. We talked about her early music influences growing up in Sacramento CA and how she gravitated to performing because of her passion for music with help from friends giving her a guitar.
Kristina Esfandiari is Miserable. Based in the Bay Area and the vocalist in King Woman, Kristina writes and performs a brand of moving and evocative music that oozes with nostalgia – and the forthcoming Uncontrollable LP is no different. The album Uncontrollable was released on The Native Sound label in April 2016.
Here’s the video for the King Woman single “Deny” that we discussed in this episode.
The following songs from Miserable are featured on this episode:
“Oven” from Uncontrollable
“Violet” from Uncontrollable
You can purchase albums from Miserable on their Bandcamp page.
The King Woman album Created in the Image of Suffering will be out on Relapse Records Feb. 24th 2017. You can pre-order their record here.
