Episode Info: BJLT05 – Ryan and Justin of Wetland Benn and Jamie spoke with Ryan Sterner and Justin Custer of Wetland to discuss their advent of their band and their song writing process. They learned that Wetland is a band that takes a democratic approach to song writing allowing each member to have input and help shape the final product of each song. They spent time discussing why Baltimore music has evolved from a clunky rock sound in the 90s to the dream pop and shoegaze sound that currently defines the Baltimore sound. Even though it was discussed the four never pinned down a reason for this change in the Baltimore scene. About Wetland Wetland was started by drummer Ryan Sterner, bassist Corey Allender and keyboardist Beth Harper. A few weeks into the project, Harper left and multi-instrumentalist  Justin Custer was invited into the project. Custer, Allender, and Sterner began developing a sound and writing songs that combined their influences which include Low, Portishead, Black Heart Procession. The three gathered together regularly, for nearly a year, to develop outlines of songs and with the intent on finding the right voice for the band. After seeing a Little Rib performance, Marybeth Mareski was approached and asked to join the group. The four of them quickly began to further develop and finalize the songs and sound. They entered the studio in 2014 to record a two song EP at Beat Babies Studio with engineer Chris Freeland. The songs chosen for their first recording were “I Haven’t Tried,” a sultry desert wanderer, and “Damned If You Do,” a down-tempo atmospheric anthem. Wetland is continuing to write and record expecting to release another two song EP by the end of 2015.
