Take Five with The Alternate Side: Icky Blossoms

Fridays on FUV, Take Five with The Alternate Side. This week: Icky Blossoms.

Add Omaha's Icky Blossoms to the formidable stable of Saddle Creek bands. The brash, sexy and fun electronic trio — which includes Tilly and the Wall's Derek Pressnall, vocalist Sarah Bohling and lead guitarist Nik Fackler — released its self-titled debut album earlier this year, produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek.

Icky Blossoms are on a North American tour with The Faint these days — they play New York's Terminal 5 on December 7 — and they recently visited Studio A for a live session during which Pressnall, Bohling and Fackler chatted with host Russ Borris about everything from the origin of "Babes" to baby wrangling.

Read interview highlights and watch more videos of the band's scintillating live performance at The Alternate Side. Even better, listen to Icky Blossoms in session today at 11 a.m. EST on 91.5 WNYE, and also online.
