An Interview with Into It. Over It.: Opening Up

Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss is running a little late for our phone interview, but with what little time he has off these days, who can blame him? A week out from a fairly aggressive 31-date spring tour for the US and UK with barely any breaks, Into It. …

An Interview with Underoath: Answered Prayers

 

When there is a question of what legacy the Millennial generation leaves music, Underoath comes to mind. Directly associated with nearly every post-hardcore, metal, emo, and indie scene in the early ’00s, Underoath, with their juxtaposition of clean and carnal vocals, play on melody and rhythm, lyrical anguish, and …

American Renaissance: An Interview with Murder By Death

When I was introduced to Murder By Death over a decade ago in 2005, they were already two full-length albums in and more than piquing the interest of pre-Millennial torrent-freaks, MP3 scavengers, and compact disc purists sharing music suggestions on instant messenger and Jersey pizzeria napkins.

The Language Of Lettuce: An Interview with Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff

Brooklyn-based funk band Lettuce was so named by a close friend who heard the group say “let us play” with such frequency and earnestness that it became a sort of instant history. Two years prior in 1992, the rambunctious teenage septet would cross out other students’ reservations for the jam …

Convos With Friends: An Interview with The Union

When I think about The Union, I can’t not associate the second stanza of Brian Adams’ “Summer Of ‘69” in my head: Me and some guys from school/Had a band and we tried real hard/Jimmy quit, Jody got married/I shoulda known we’d never get far. Believe me, I’ve …

The Contrarian: On Relativity

Everything looks different from different angles and in different types of light and with different degrees of sightedness. The significance, the weight, the effectiveness of things fluctuate with the weather, your skin color, where you went to college. To each his own, by all means. But by what means?

The Contrarian: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

As I get older and exponentially less cute, the gifts from the near-faceless sea of my mother’s friends at holidays and birthdays have gone from tangible objects, like clothes and girl shit, to a direct gesture at the potential of my owning said clothes and girl shit: Gift cards, gift …

The Contrarian: “The Best Man”

The race for the presidency has been one of the dirtiest we’ve seen, and the battle against the incumbent, between the two power parties, has not even begun.
