Guster

Guster - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt

With over 20 years and six albums under its belt, Guster finds new sounds and fresh approaches to recording on its seventh release, Evermotion. On this album, the band rediscovers the carefree, fearless ease that they had when they joined forces with “two acoustic guitars and a pair of bongos” as college students at Tufts University in Boston.

In my conversation with frontman Ryan Miller and drummer Brian Rosenwercel, the guys discussed how having more space between writing sessions, more physical distance between bandmates, and the guidance of producer Richard Swift (The Shins, The Black Keys) led Guster to “break through a wall."

Guster - Words and Music - 2010

by Rita Houston
Guster is American alternative rock band that came out of Boston around the same time that Jonatha Brooke and Dar Williams were first playing open mics, but this group was drawing more from Phish and Widespread Panic than Pete Seeger. Their latest album has some new instrumentation and a poppier feel. It's called 'Easy Wonderful,' and WFUV's Rita Houston got to hear first hand--ear--Guster's new sounds. [10/4/10]
