In this episode of Soundwaves, the official SLUG Mag podcast, we’ll be previewing the upcoming 2015–16 season for the Utah Jazz with SLUG Columnist Mike Brown and Peter Makowski from the band Accidente.

After moving to Salt Lake in 1979 from New Orleans, the Utah Jazz found success in our salty city. Breeding all-stars such as Karl MaloneMark EatonCarlos Boozer and John Stockton, the Jazz was home to Olympians and hall-of-famers. This year, the Jazz are back with fan favorites such as Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, and SLUG got the chance to sit down and talk about the season.

Accidente is a local punk rock and post-hardcore band from Salt Lake. The group released their debut album titled, Exotic Payday, in 2012 and their latest album, Headless, was released in 2015. Listen as band member Peter Makowski sits down with Mike Brown to discuss the upcoming Utah Jazz season, among other things.
