::    Interviews  
  • Of Montreal
    Of Montreal create fun music. It really is as simple as that. Hailing from the booming Athens, GA music scene, Kevin Barnes and company (when there is company, that is) have been making the most of constructing engaging indie pop fun for the past six years. In our conversation with Barnes, we really do cover a whole lot. So much in fact that it’s seemingly pointless to tease you right here with what was discussed. Just read on already.

  • Limbeck
    Limbeck apparently love the Midwest. How nice of them. They tend to dig quite a few other things as well - like revamping their sound and touring the shit out of two continents. Since the release of their 2003 born-again album, Hi, Everything’s Great, Limbeck have garnered a wide fan-base, attracting fans from sub-genre this and sub-genre that. We talk with them about various subjects and discover that Jawbreaker could potentially beat out Fugazi on the most popular band people were listening to at age 17.

  • Broken Social Scene: Kevin Drew
    What do you know? Toronto truly is artsy. File sharing actually does help some people. Delayed hype can really wear a band out. And sometimes a person will do things that they normally don't (thankfully, in this case). Kevin Drew takes some time to explain how all of these concepts apply to him and his collective, Broken Social Scene.

  • The Hold Steady
    Of course an interview with the Hold Steady is gonna touch on Lifter Puller - topics such as this just cannot be ignored. But, you know what? It’s not all we talk about. Craig Finn and company tell us tales about the state of music in New York, Minneapolis’ past and various other important subjects such as breakdancing in such a jovial way that it’d be very hard for you not to hit that link above. Curious, aren’t you? Go right ahead.

  • Of Montreal Disconnect the Dots
    Of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes stood behind the stage at Minneapolis' First Avenue - 7th Street Entry, staring at...something. The top of a speaker cabinet, maybe - that's where his head was pointed, anyway. I felt a little guilty interrupting him, even though he didn't seem to be doing anything in particular. "Kevin?" I offered his name almost as an apology. He looked up at me and I reminded myself that this is how you ought to look if you want to write and sing about efeblums and coquelicots: small, thin and almost elfin. As we exchange...

    Thoughts From The Sea (2004/05/25)
  • Funfzehn Minuten
    Down here on the bottom of this page, hopefully hidden from the casual reader, you will see that we have a column that is not necessarily about music. Whether you heed this warning or not falls onto your shoulders, as our columnist, Tim Creen, Esq., chooses instead to comment on life, liberty, and the pursuit of all things moving at 60 mph in a strong cross-wind. This being said, we decided to employ Mr. Creen so that an avid reader could take a small break from reviews and interviews and instead gain minute amounts of knowledge on other, lesser topics....
