Providence, R.I. – It's hard to characterize the music of the Rhode Island based band Death Vessel. The radio station WNYC has called it familiar yet strange, personal yet abstract. And The Denver Post's Reverb blog has described the music as leaving "a unique taste in the air" and "an urge to hear more."
Joel Thibodeau, a Berlin-born and Kennebunkport-raised musician, is the driving force behind the band. He recently returned to the state after touring the west coast, Midwest and Canada, and sat down with Morning Edition host Bob Seay for an interview.
