[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Chad Ubovich of Meatbodies

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Chad Ubovich of Meatbodies

  (photo by Alice Baxley) I’ve written about Chad Ubovich and/or his (formerly “and the”) Meatbodies (he’s come a long way from his first Cultist interview) so let’s just say that the new self-titled album is full of some of my most favorite things: fuzz, reverb, and psych-soaked rock and roll (ergo, it’s awesome), and...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Artist Brendan Donnelly

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Artist Brendan Donnelly

The only thing I hate more than reading about art is writing about art. I should probably use some words like post-internet and self-referential and anti-something, but I don’t know what any of that means. I do know that Brendan Donnelly is a demented fuck hiding in the body of a Connecticut WASP  with the...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] The Coathangers

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] The Coathangers

(photos by Jayne Min) I’ve already written extensively in praise of The Coathangers (like HERE and HERE and HERE and also HERE), and have let my single white female tendencies shine bright like creepy, adoring diamond, so I won’t blather on anymore here except to say this: The Coathangers, with their well-crafted punk songs and...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys

It’s my belief that sad songs truly make the world go around, or at the very least they help shepherd some of us out of bed and through our days and maybe back into bed but still, with their melancholy melodies and wistful words, they shepherd us nonetheless. By this logic The Fresh & Onlys...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Calvin Love Has A Lust For (A Nomadic) Life

You know what I love? Yes, french fries, and yes, also baby goats, and yes, okay the television drama Nashville, but aside from all that? I love driving music. I love the kind of album you can put on in its entirety to soundtrack aimless driving, preferably at night, most preferably through winding roads and...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Artist Eric McHenry Loves Originality, Creativity, and Reggie Miller

Anyone who has ever had to endure the mundane while trapped in a seated position (during class, at boring office jobs, in the back row of musical theater) has surely called on their inner Picasso and sketched random shit on paper. As for me, I used to draw scary man faces with question mark foreheads,...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Antwon on Enjoying Friendship, Being Very Lazy, and Sex All the Time

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Antwon on Enjoying Friendship, Being Very Lazy, and Sex All the Time

Here are a few things you should know about Bay Area rapper and handsome gentleman Antwon: he loves Blink-182 (although he prefers Dude Ranch to Cheshire Cat, which I personally cannot get behind), he is incredibly talented at Snapchat (his “White Girls Be Like…” series is truly art), and he does one of the most...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Presley of White Fence

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Presley of White Fence

Upon being presented the opportunity to interview Tim Presley, the one-man in the one-man lo-fi psych-pop outfit White Fence, I went about my usual, professional pre-interview research methods: re-listening to the latest album Cyclops Reap, reading various articles about the band, and most important to my process, carefully scrolling through Tim’s Instagram. The album is...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] King Tuff

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] King Tuff

We (I) did this interview with King Tuff (aka Kyle Thomas) about five years ago (five years = six months) and forgot about it because I am an under-achiever who perennially and subconsciously fucks up in order to avoid dealing with actual, true failure…wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, King Tuff, and how...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Danny Brown

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Danny Brown

Danny Brown wears Balmain. And Margiela. And Rick Owens. Basically he dresses like I do in my dream world where I have an exorbitant amount of money and boyish hips and a septum piercing (which is probably the only one of these items within my grasp were it not for my pesky nose-rubbing habit). Besides...
[7 QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] W. Kamau Bell + Nato Green

[7 QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] W. Kamau Bell + Nato Green

As a young Jewish girl growing up in the Everglades, Chris Rock’s “Bigger & Blacker” obviously played a very significant role in my life. I’m a huge fan of his stand-up and some of his better movies (let’s just pretend Down To Earth never happened). So when I heard he was producing a new FX...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Hunters

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Hunters

Here is the part where I attempt to talk about the band Hunters without sounding like an obsessive fan kid, and forthwith fail miserably: The New York-based duo is THAT COOL. Between Isabel Almeida’s adorable Brazilian accent and cotton candy pink hair and Derek Watson’s cerebral metal head steez and completely disarming wit, I’m pretty...
