Interview: Chewing the Gristle with Xiu Xiu.

…keep at it or something. And Stewart’s discographic union as it were with Simon Raymonde’s Bella Union outfit itself makes for an irrefutably intriguing pairing. Of course for Xiu Xiu to find a home on any which label would be an improbable ask, given the incongruity not only of his records with regard to those of his every contemporary recording artist, but so too with reference to his each and every individual, and indeed overtly…So on & so forth…

r, radio, TV, which is good.” And so here we find ourselves, recording tangled, contorted voices on an iPhone for an online interview in a beer garden on a digit-numbing, blood-chilling October afternoon. One particular labelling that’s known to get Tiersen’s blood boiling (or at least simmering) is the description of him as an outright composer. When quizzed on the common misconception, he barks firmly: “I’m not!…So on & so forth…

Interview: Catching Up with Alex Calder.

…proclaims midway through one of umpteen unending email correspondences. It’s Lane who functions as his sentient alarm clock, or so I’ve been duly informed by the miracle workers and alternative pop seekers at the label and this afternoon, he’s up and at it alright. Girl done good! Though so long and winding has the road been up until this point for the pair of us – convoluted as this prolix introduction, I guess – that I almost…So on & so forth…

…17;s later revealed), and a wry smirk, she reluctantly poses and postures for an SLR-toting photographic purist, gnawing on a limb of chicken all the while. Recently signed to much lionised UK indie label Mute, Houghton seems suitably ferocious in her feral get-up as she sneers barbed words and occasional sighs when questioned, presumably for the umpteenth time, over quite where she got to these past twelve months….So on & so forth…

Interview: Howling at the Moon with Patrick Wolf.

were just in the middle of recording a twelve-piece string section, the gospel choir were coming the next day and there was still all the mixing to do. It’s a huge process. But on top of that, we used the money to fund my UK label Bloody Chamber Music as well as singles, videos, artwork and all of that. Dashes: Has it been more expensive than The Magic Position for example? PW: A load more, yes. The Magic Position was recorded mainly in a home s…So on & so forth…

…funk-ridden wave Bundick is known to ride – although he says he’s “expecting it.” He’s well versed in it, even and consequently, “it’s not, like, a burden to talk about – it’s just a label which is, or was, used to describe something so it’s totally useful. It’s just that every once in a while a label comes along which sounds really silly. It’s kinda weird, but when I first heard the te…So on & so forth…

They were then ‘Raph and Agor’ in place of Raphaelle and Alex, and were categorically not she from BRAIDS and the brother of an indie label founder. It could quite conceivably have been the case that they should opt to resort to this sort of self-aggrandising name-dropping, but they’ve considerably better dignity than to go doing that. “There&#…So on & so forth…

It’s just like that, and so in some respects it’s very much built like a business.” To stick with this more vocational filament of thought, the band are currently signed to Secretly Canadian – a label to have centralised its attentions upon the envelope-pushing, off-kilt pioneering of the mid-2000s zeitgeist which was, in itself, inspired in no small part by the rich output of their homeland.

Dots: As an unsigned band, where do you stand with regard to the frenzied label rushes and flops of recent times?
