This week, "A Change of Tune" host Joni Deutsch interviews Petersburg-native Kenny Tompkins about New God, Tompkins' Baltimore-based art pop band that includes his very own brother, Curt Tompkins. The interview veers into topics as diverse as New God's music, the future of youth in West Virginia, and the confusion over the band's name and a popular Kanye West song. If you're a fan of music that invokes the breezy, lo-fi catchiness of The Beach Boys, this interview and band are recommended for you.

New God just released the lyric video for their song "Ocean Hum," and the band will be back on tour this fall. For more band news, make sure to check out New God's website and Facebook. You can listen to the band's new music on Joni Deutsch’s “A Change of Tune” this Saturday at 10 PM EST on West Virginia Public Radio.

Joni Deutsch was born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia, and graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in public relations and advertising. After learning the radio ropes at WLUR 91.5 FM in Lexington, Virginia, Joni returned to the Mountain State and joined the West Virginia Public Broadcasting family as the creator and host of the weekly indie/alternative music program A Change of Tune and the critically-acclaimed 30 Days of #WVmusic interview series.
