An Interview With Death From Above 1979: Reappearing Act

I’m watching a night football game, and thinking about how Sebastien Grainger (drummer of Death From Above 1975) commented on our tribal sports culture, to me. Then this commercial comes on, and it’s like… a group of guys chugging beer cans, spraying it all over each other, and spitting on …

An Interview with Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell of Dirty Heads: Rolling Deep

Last year, at Firefly Music Festival, was the last time I saw Dirty Heads live. Besides the undeniable manifest of sweat, jive, and beer bottles—love and musical lustiness also commenced the first lyric heard. The whole set stood on stage, in front of synched waves of fingertips that were stretched …

An Interview with Enochian: Rebel Alliance

The first time I saw Enochian, I was accompanying my friend (and patriotic fan) to a local show. Keep in mind, this is North Jersey—the bands are germinating by the minute. However, I quickly noticed the audience moshing and vibing out with this unsigned band. What’s the big deal with …

An Interview with Gogol Bordello: Roma Renegades

Eugene Hütz isn’t your average frontman. Gogol Bordello isn’t your normal band. Gypsy punk rock that you can dance to isn’t your cup of tea. Here’s the thing—sure as hell that a band that has been around for nearly 20 years, seen more crowds than the pope, and does it …

An Interview with Cage The Elephant: You Gotta Dig Deep

I remember standing inside a music venue in New York City, catching a set of this band unknown to me, but then leaving frantically searching through all their information. They were the opener of one of my favorite bands, and rocked harder than any show I saw that year. The …

An Interview with Surfer Blood: Current Direction

There are few things worse than interviewing an artist when you’re veritably sick and want to just crawl into a ball… but at least John Paul Pitts of Surfer Blood was super nice through the sniffles and breaks in conversation. In a recent interview with The Aquarian, Pitts shows …

Wire: Wire

Since their historical debut in 1977 with Pink Flag and the emergence of punk rock on their shoulders, London’s Wire have since been on and off the scene but always reemerge with a bang. They were also there during Britain’s music revolution of the new wave punk scene, right before …

An Interview with The Bright Light Social Hour: Lunar Crooners

Contrary to popular belief, you sometimes have to leave Texas to experience the bigger things in life (and space). Austin’s The Bright Light Social Hour might have toured more time than they’ve actually spent at home in recent years. And they journey along the waves of outer-space and conquer in-between …

Interview with Rx Bandits: Vitamin B’s Family Tree

In the midst of branding and Wikipedia page references, Rx Bandits were never synonymous with having a label. They’ve undergone a few changes, not solely with members—but with what we would call their ‘style.’ However, their core philosophy has never altered. And as recently revealed by Steve Choi to The

The Maine: American Candy

When The Maine first started touring, half the band had yet to finish high school. Fast forward to almost a decade later, the five dudes have graduated into a matured and developed sound. Originally from Arizona, but known for connecting with their fans across the map, they recently released their …
