Searching for Lunch: A Sandwich Session with Eric Nordby and Kat Olsen

Sandwich Session. Kat and Eric. August 2017.00_00_09_05.Still001.jpg

Marmoset’s trusty Music Supervisors don’t take much of a break from working wonders in pairing music to film — unless lunch is involved. Luckily, our senior Marmo fam, Eric Nordby and Kat Olsen, happened to have a panini press and a live basil plant laying around when we pulled them away from their headphones to discuss cat Instagrams, hot sauce, and Kat's band, Rilla in our latest Sandwich Session.

Learn more about this duo's favorite projects and who would win in a Jenga battle royale below, and enjoy.

Artist Spotlight: The Shredding Blues of Shuggie Otis


Known as a master of blending genres and a musical influence more than 40 years following his first release, it’s not surprising that guitarist, singer and multi-instrumentalist Shuggie Otis was named the "teen blues king" in the 1960s, during the height of blues, rock and psychedelic funk. As the son of rhythm and blues musician (and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-r) Johnny Otis, Shuggie learned the guitar at age 11, when he began accompanying his father’s band at shows. His first album, 1969’s Here Comes Shuggie Otis, drew inspiration from the popular artists of his time, such as Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix, and shot him to fame following its release, when he caught the attention of B.B. King. Shuggie went on to perform and record with the likes of Etta James, Frank Zappa, Richard Berry and more.

Heavy on raw electric guitar riffs, funky background instrumentals and an energy that’s hard to keep up with, we are thrilled to feature Shuggie Otis’ single, “Ice Cream Party” in our Vintage Collection as an example of his long-standing contribution to rock music.

Ambient Artists You Need to Hear

Everyone could use a quiet moment once in awhile -- a time to relax, zone out, or just fade into the background without any distractions. That’s where these artists come in -- they compose serene soundscapes, finely balancing interesting textures with unobtrusive, mellow tones.

From the cinematic synth notes of Dropa's pensive song, “Sleeper," to the hazy guitar riffs of “Neverender,” by LA-based band, XOLO, learn more about some of the ambient artists on our roster below and let these calming vibes accompany chilled out moments (or delicate, atmospheric scenes). Sit back, press play, and enjoy.

Here at Marmoset, our Music Supervisors are superheroes of song -- selecting just the right tunes for any project in need of music. We asked longtime Music Supervisor, David Katz, to put together a mixtape using his music guru magic. As a musician himself under the moniker Altadore, you know this is going to be good.

David provided us with a wide variety of some of his favorites songs -- the reflective indie rock of Hajk, big house beats and hip hop from Black Caviar, vintage blues of Freddy Fender and more. Whatever it may be that catches your ear, enjoy these specially curated picks.
