Underground Music Collective is excited to partner with California-based music writer and vlogger ExhibitCreative to bring you the Exhibit&Friends video series.
Based in California, Exhibit&Friends will feature interviews with artists from all over the world, across a wide variety of genres — kind of like a lot of what we do here at UMC. Great minds think alike, as they say, and we’re excited to welcome our new friends into the fold, and to become introduced to even more talented and creative people from everywhere.
Let’s jump right in below!

Darrin Bradbury is a world-aware folk troubadour whose writing style points out the mundane occurrences of everyday life with wry wit and, at times, dark humor. This is prevalent on his new album, Talking Dogs & Atom Bombs, which was released on Anti Records on Sept. 20, 2019.
Darrin joins The Quinn Spinn today, and we talk about the album and much more — including authenticity, society, and technology’s impact on what it means to be human in the 21st Century.
