Interviews

The Hold Steady | Born to Kick Your Ass

Written by Jeremy Goldmeier Wednesday, 29 November 2006 16:00

holdsteadyFinn sets the energy level at every show, serving as the focal point for the band's maelstrom. In interviews, however, he and Kubler seem to trade personas. Finn comes across as laconic and easy-going, Kubler as giddy and talkative.

 

 

Steppin' Out With the Kooks

Written by Laura Hamlett Wednesday, 29 November 2006 03:25

prof_kooks_smIt's always about a feeling, isn't it? If you feel something is not right, you don't do it. And if something feels right and someone puts a great idea forward, then you embrace it and you try and make it your own; you develop it. With the music side of things, we all write songs anyways, so we all know how a song works, 'cause we all know how a good song sounds and ways to reach it up a bit.

 

   

Gentleman Auction House | On the Block

Written by Laura Hamlett Wednesday, 29 November 2006 02:54

prof_gah_sm"Personally, I think if you're a person that is driven to do something, it's often impossible to describe why. I just know that I wake up every day with my stomach nervous and my hands jittery. I can't turn off the drive to write songs and play music. Ridiculous as it may be, that's how it is."

Written by Jeremy Goldmeier Saturday, 11 November 2006 08:55

Kaki King | Seeing Red

king"I don't have a very strong voice," she says. "I think limiting myself to what I'm capable of really was better than pushing myself to try and sing with a growl or with a lot of breath behind it. So I think that it ended up being far better to build upon what some people would consider a weakness and turn it into a strength."

 

   

Not Just Dessert | The Sweet Sounds of Cake on Cake

Written by Kevin Renick Monday, 06 November 2006 10:55

The surface sparkle of the music is always an invitation to go deeper, where melancholy thoughts and joyful reverie occur in equal measure.

Killoween II takes place on October 28 at Pop's 24/7 in scenic Sauget, Ill., and once again features Gravity Kills headlining a trio of local bands: One Lone Car, Ultra Blue, and longtime local favorites Fragile Porcelain Mice.

Towers of London | Reality Bites

Written by Brian Kenney Wednesday, 11 October 2006 08:16

From court appearances, to being kicked off tours and out of clubs, they've got the attitude. And in an image vs. substance industry, it's all about looks, innit?

 

 

Jeremy Enigk | Patience Is a Virtue

Written by Brian Kenney Wednesday, 11 October 2006 08:11

Scissor Sisters' New Bag of Tricks

Written by Cory Hoehn Wednesday, 11 October 2006 03:05

"[Sir Elton John] said in the beginning, ‘I don't know what's gonna happen. You guys do whatever you want with these songs. Let's just have fun. If nothing happens, we still enjoyed the process."

 

 

Robert Randolph | The Family Plan

Written by Brian Kenney Wednesday, 11 October 2006 02:41

"Y'all ready for ‘The March'?" Randolph asks on Live at the Wetlands, before breaking into a quick-picking rollicking soul jam so identifiable with this lap pedal steel prodigy, that it set the tone for his career to present.

 

   

Jen Chapin | Keeping It in the Family

Written by Chris M. Junior Monday, 02 October 2006 10:00

"For me, folk is music that searches for community and meaning as opposed to being individualistic or angst-driven; it's making positive connections, and that's part of what I do."

 

 

Tally Hall | Terms of Endearment

Written by Mike Tangaro Monday, 02 October 2006 08:56

With each band member writing diverse songs, their debut feels like an exercise in genre hopping, trying their hand at reggae, rap, and power-pop—all with in the first 20 minutes.

Evidence of indie-pop genius lurks in the shadows; the electronic aspect is ever-present, but rarely overbearing.

 

 

The Zutons | Separate Buses

Written by Jim Ousley Monday, 02 October 2006 08:48
