Last week on SMI Radio, we featured a fun conversation and music from Daydream Vacation with David Einmo (Head Like A Kite) and Asy Saavedra. Asy spoke briefly about her other project, Chaos Chaos (formerly Smoosh), which involves her sister Chloe.

Asy flew into town to perform with Daydream Vacation at The Vera Project this past Friday, and The Anchor in Everett the following night. The next night, Chaos Chaos played a show at The Crocodile. and also appeared for a KEXP session.


On this week’s episode of SMI Radio, we take you backstage at The Vera Project for a conversation with Asy and Chloe. The two sisters make their home in Brooklyn, New York, but definitely consider Seattle their other home. They talk about the distinctions between their former project, Smoosh, and how it evolved into Chaos Chaos. David Einmo joins the conversation later on to talk about the new track he’s producing for Chaos Chaos while they’re in town. Also, Asy and Chloe reveal how Hurricane Sandy directly impacted them.

In addition, we feature selected tracks from their debut EP.

In the second half of the show, you get a triple shot of Christmas spirit from The HoHoHos, Brent Amaker and The Rodeo and Fitz and The Tantrums.

We finish the show off with the brand new single from the forthcoming Ben Union record, This Blessed Union Volume II. (Ben Union will play their record release show on January 12th at The Crocodile.)
