Medvedi: The Nature of Unwinding

Medvedi is an Americana punk four-piece based out of El Paso, Texas. The band—comprised of Ben Balusek, Ernie Carillo, Chris Odom, and Andy Chavez—are gearing up to release their second full-length album, Unwind, this summer. With another full-length album and a split under their belt, the quartet met with me after practice one Wednesday night to discuss their newest album, the dynamics between the members, and the future of the band itself.
