Interview: Junior Boys

Don’t call it a comeback. Because it isn’t really. That said, the critical response to Junior Boys’ third album, 2009’s Begone Dull Care was markedly less enthusiastic than that of their debut and sophomore efforts. June’s It’s All True saw songwriter and producer Jeremy Greenspan mulling over his place in read more…

Friendly Fires

Like cut-offs or longjohns, some bands are tied to particular seasons. Friendly Fires are St. Albans summer boys, as their second album, the poppy Pala, will testify. Despite the Balearic holiday buzz and Gallic House communality that separates their music from NME Cool List urchins and dance-crossover diletantes, however, Friendly read more…

Justice – Interview

It’s only five years since Kitsuné and Ed Banger ran the world. Fuelled by a hybrid nostalgia for rave fashion eccentricity and that exact moment disco morphed into house, French electro and its sister scenes saw a short-lived Renaissance – Justice was its Da Vinci. We’re well into the Age read more…

TD’s Picks For HWCH 2011

On top of providing a chance for brand new bands to find a following, an advantage of Hard Working Class Heroes is that it gives the casual observer a chance to catch up with the bands who’ve been soaking up all the hype since this time last year. Dublin’s burgeoning read more…

Philosorapture. The perma-cool New York label DFA Twitter-quipped that Harold Camping was not so much wrong about his prediction that the Rapture was coming – his estimations were just three months off. This September sees the return of a band that even the bravest prophet might not have bet on read more…

Best Coast Cooler

Of the generation of (predominantly West Coast American) indie-pop bands fixated on reimaging the sound of surf-pop through their own sandy-shoed, weed-hazed filter, Bethany Cosentino is undeniably the queen of the beach. Already noted for her ectoplasmic contribution to drone-rock duo Pocahaunted and her early fuzz-drenched 7” singles as Best read more…

Interview: Luke Vibert

With his first release dating back to 1993, Luke Vibert is undoubtedly a member of the old-guard of British electronic music. With Roland synths as his muse, the man also known as Kerrier District, Wagon Christ, and Plug (just to name a few) has been churning out disco, drum n’ read more…

Washed Out Interviewed

Ernest Greene began his Washed Out odyssey in when he was fresh out of college in 2009 when his lo-fi tracks were thrown into the relative limelight by powerful American music blogs in the initial wave of what came of to be known as chillwave. Influenced by J Dilla and read more…

Interview: Jimmy Edgar

Two minutes and thirty-six seconds into our very first conversation, and Jimmy Edgar’s talking about his sex life. I kind of am too. Rather than social perversion though, it would be unnatural to talk about much else – sexuality is the overlapping theme of the various artistic disciplines Edgar so read more…
