Interview: They’re Talking About You Again, Erland & The Carnival.

…o make ends meet – as most labels do these days – but they’ve always been very supportive, and very eager. Which makes it very easy for the bands on the label to do what they want to do. Were we to go to a bigger independent label – never mind a major label – there would be so much more pressure [put upon us] to look, or sound a certain way; but with Full Time Hobby, we’ve been completely left to our own devices, allowing us to do whatever we…So on & so forth…

Interview: Babblin, Celebration.

…in the end, was indeed Bella Union. But even when a suitable nest had at last been located, the album’s incubation took “a while,” and it was then that the whole process first began to frustrate. “Bella Union is a very busy label – they’re putting stuff out all the time – but when they said, ‘Yeah, we’d love to put out this record’, we were like, ‘Awesome!’ Then they were like, ‘But… it’ll be next summer…’ And we were like, ‘[Long,…So on & so forth…

Interview: Changing Faces, Craft Spells.

…perlink me to other bands, were gonna happen. I was prepared for it, and I’m OK where it is now. I’m really happy, actually.” However, on the topic of Captured Tracks, and having spoken to a number of Vallesteros’ so-called ‘labelmates’, all of whom have always been not only happy, but also keen to commend the efforts of Mike Sniper et al., the reality that the Brooklyn indie is not only ready, but also willing to take chances is made manifest…So on & so forth…

Interview: Letting Go, Little Dragon.

…dline date at the O2 Academy Brixton now imminent next, it seems fair to say that Yukimi Nagano’s Little Dragon look set to see out the year in much the same way as they’ve seen so much it: from well on top. On her umpteenth interview of the morning, however, Nagano may not sound as enthused as she might have otherwise; not at first, at least. Although soon enough, this initial frostiness thaws, as we begin by talking tangents… For with…So on & so forth…

Interview: Pleasant Hearts, Ought.

…le. And we don’t consider ourselves a ‘genre band’, anyway; I don’t think we feel like we have to make a certain sort of music for the next record. We have a sound, based on playing together, but Constellation is not a genre label anyway, and that leaves us a lot of room to do what we want to do; to be that bit more open with creative pursuits, or whatever.” Among the more creative of quips that Beeler has committed to record, however, is one…So on & so forth…

Interview: Familiars Revisited, The Antlers.

…he band are gonna understand [Familiars] better than anyone who’s not in the band. That’s just because we know it inside and out; we know everything that created it, and I think that when you hear a record, or if you read an interview, the information that you get as a listener, or a reader, is really the tip, of the tip, of the tip of the iceberg of this person’s life, and experience. So the understanding I have of the records we’ve made is the…So on & so forth…

Interview: Hangin’ On, Sean Nicholas Savage.

…I’m just faking my songs” he later reckons, although he’s seemingly bang up for a resplendent live show that same evening. But first, the last chinwag of the afternoon. As a(n un)necessary convention, he doesn’t begrudge the interview, instead cherishing each as a period of intense reflection: “Interviews make me feel pretty good – it’s like going to a psychiatrist! ‘What’s bothering you?’ ‘Everything!’ I have one of the stranger perspectives on…So on & so forth…

Interview: Let’s Grow, Gulp.

…nd marital) partner Lindsey Leven’s début full-length, Season Sun due – do I find time to look back upon one of the more relaxed conversations I can recall. Incidentally, today seems as fitting a time as any for this belated interview to materialise: with the Manics’ renaissance (Futurology) and Pryce’s fellow Super Furry Animal, Gruff Rhys’ return to form (American Interior) to extol, Wales has returned to the very forefront of pioneering,…So on & so forth…

Interview: Out of the Dark, Klaxons.

…olds is in typically bullish mood this afternoon, as he has every right to be. Because, moving on from family to friends, whether with or without James Righton and Simon Taylor-Davis, Reading Festival – where this particular interview took place – occupies an uncharacteristically quiet pride of place in his affections. As such, as much for him as it is for me, it’s difficult to discuss the post-GCSE carouse from any form of objective…So on & so forth…

Interview: Shooting the Breeze, Slowdive.

…ine in the morning, the penny didn’t really drop. But I don’t actually feel pressure.” Referencing the press, rather than pressure then, you would be forgiven for thinking that the band would never want to partake in another interview ever again. Conversely, Goswell reassures me they “don’t mind doing press” with the associated caveat that they don’t feel like they “need to do that much at the moment.” Her reasoning for this? Well, “we’re…So on & so forth…
