Father John Misty On Love and New Music

Father John Misty is an intense musician. Or, at least, very complicated. The project of ex-Fleet Foxes member Josh Tillman, the second LP, I Love You, Honeybear, was just released this past Tuesday. The album takes a broad, although at times unsettling close, look at love; all in Tillman’s cynical, mostly tongue-in-cheek tone. Josh on his new album versus […]

Our Interview with The Strypes

  “It’s like a hobby that’s got horribly out of hand…” From Cavan in Ireland, The Strypes have become fairly famous fairly quickly for being incredibly young guys into incredibly old music.

Our interview with Miguel

  Miguel has the voice of a god, which is something that he shows more than ever when he’s performing live.

Our Interview with Disclosure

“Michael Jackson taught me everything about the structure of a pop song…” Disclosure’s Guy (22) and Howard Lawrence (19) have – almost from nowhere – become the hottest production team in the country.

Our Interview with Robert DeLong

“I had a giant lever for a while, but it just made me look stupid…” Robert DeLong is the only artist we’ve ever had in the office whose session was so incredibly loud every single other company in our building complained. This, we think, is something he ought to be very, very proud of. “It’s […]
