Of Creative Satisfaction: An Interview with Daughters/Way Out’s Nicholas Sadler

Photo by Rianne Garrido Daughters re-imagined and beautifully corrupted their sound on last years You Won't Get What You Want. In actuality, I got exactly what I did not know I needed. The album has an almost industrial edge to its rhythm section and singer Alexis shouts and wails his grim and poetic brand of … Continue reading Of Creative Satisfaction: An Interview with Daughters/Way Out’s Nicholas Sadler

An Interview w/ Cris Crude of Pg99/Pygmy Lush/Malady

"All Corpse Are Bastards" by Cris Crude If you look at punk rock linearly, starting with, say, The Velvet Underground or The Stooges and ending somewhere around whoever has the balls to call themselves punk in 2019 (I don't really need the headache of trying to puzzle that one out right now), an extremely pertinent … Continue reading An Interview w/ Cris Crude of Pg99/Pygmy Lush/Malady

Reflections of the Valedictorian (An Interview with Carey Mercer of Frog Eyes)

Frog Eyes' Final Testament "Live at the Moroccan Lounge" is available exclusively on their bandcamp If I were tasked to give you a "good place to start" with Canadian band Frog Eyes (or any of Carey Mercer's projects) I would flounder about and sputter and blurt out a stream of albums and songs that probably … Continue reading Reflections of the Valedictorian (An Interview with Carey Mercer of Frog Eyes)

Jeromes Dream Emerges Unblemished from a Time Capsule (Interview)

Jeromes Dream "LP", out July 19th on Microspy Evidence to support any band reforming and, as a whole, being worth a fuck after decades of inactivity is typically very slim. If there are any exceptions to that, save Connecticut's Jeromes Dream, to date, they escape me. JD have rolled the dice against the odds of … Continue reading Jeromes Dream Emerges Unblemished from a Time Capsule (Interview)

An Interview with Infant Island of Virginia

Infant Island LP. 2018 (Infant Island) Aside: I will avoid using the word “screamo” throughout this piece because, truthfully, it does no justice to the subject matter. The miserable realization that I should give up my search for anything closely approximating the feeling I got from hardcore punk bands of the 90's and early 2000's … Continue reading An Interview with Infant Island of Virginia

An Interview with Protomartyr’s Alex Leonard

Protomartyr recently re-issued their debut LP "No Passion All Technique" on Domino I always tell people that assume I love music that they are sadly mistaken. I dislike, or just don't care at all about, the majority of music. It's very tacky. Even when it's almost good it's too effete and hackneyed for me to … Continue reading An Interview with Protomartyr’s Alex Leonard

An Interview with Pile’s Rick Maguire

Green and Gray, released today I’ve become a bit disenchanted with indie rock over the past couple of years. No need to go into my reasons but suffice to say that everything is just becoming a bit uninteresting and clonish. That’s why I find myself covering more and more hardcore and post-punk artists. Let’s face … Continue reading An Interview with Pile’s Rick Maguire
