Introducing: Tendaberry

Atlanta Afro-Punk quartet Tendaberry stops by the studio to talk about their experience as a group forming and beginning to come into their own in the Atlanta music scene. In this pod we talk at length about the Atlanta Indie Rock scene, the AUC (Morehouse, Clark-Atlanta & Spelman) music and arts scene and about what it means to them being Black Post-punk musicians.

Atlanta Afro-Punk quartet Tendaberry stops by the studio to talk about their experience as a group forming and beginning to come into their own in the Atlanta music scene.   In this pod we talk at length about the Atlanta Indie Rock scene, the AUC (Morehouse, Clark-Atlanta & Spelman) music and arts scene and about what it means to them being Black Post-punk musicians.

We discuss their rubbing shoulders and working with ATL-scene acts like Jaspects, Deep Cotton, Janelle Monae, London, Spree Wilson, Lmarr the Great, Smalleyez & now defunct group The Slack Republik.

The interview is a walk through the gritty streets of Atlanta’s west end, a re-introduction into the University of Georgia’s college-town music scene in Athens and a discussion of what it takes to persevere as musicians toeing the line of soul and punk.

    I love the depth of music there is to find in Atlana! Janelle Monae, Deep Cotton, and Jaspects reign as some of my favorite artists…their unique perspective on sound always creates a unique treatment for their music. This makes the listening experience special every time. Tendaberry working with them would make great and innovative collaborations:)

    i love tendaberr. I didn’t know carlton was a gemini, geminis are awesome. But i love these guys, incredible musicians, super fun and i was lucky enough to be at morehouse with these gentlemans, shane was in my freshman calculus class(mr, orange is a prolific mind, might i add)

    These guys played in my living room more than one time.

    Don’t get me started on Janelle Monae, Jaspects my boy Small Eyez or The Slack Repub. Man if you know all of them i probably know you.

    Big Ups to all my Black Rockers especially in the Atlanta Scenery. Love you guys
