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.

Corrections-Projection (A Meditation on Modern Post-Punk)

I had a very interesting conversation with Sam Nicholas of London's “post-post-punk" band, Corrections, who just released his new, state-of-the-art LP, “Projection", on France's Icy Cold Records. I’m going to request that you now switch over to whatever it is you stream music on and find it. Soak it in while you read this.
