We talk to Jim Ver and Ted Reglis, otherwise known as Mockbirth, about the awful social state of Greece, Tom Waits, Charles Bukowski and the blurring of lines between scenes and cultures.
Sarah P, one half of Keep Shelly in Athens, talks to us about the group’s origins, what ‘home’ means to her and how she feels about the current situation in Greece.
This week, we were fortunate enough to be able to speak with the drummer of Wintersleep as the band prepares to embark on their tour of the United States with the always brilliant Frightened Rabbit. Coming off the heels of their UK tour with the group, here’s what Loel Campbell had to say to us.
We recently reviewed, and fell in love with, the new album from Lux Interna, ‘there is light in the body, there is blood in the sun’. Filled with deep intrigue after surveying lyrics and accompanying artwork, we wanted to know more about the group’s sources of inspiration and their decade-plus journey together. Thus, we spoke to the founding duo Joshua Levi Ian and Kathryn Mary and picked their brains, provoking some very insightful responses.
Last week we reviewed the fantastic Takes Time by Jim Guthrie, an album that took over six years to finish. It’s a charming blend of folk, pop & indie, and we managed to catch up with the man himself for a quick chat on everything from 60s pop music to his love of vinyl and plugins.
Feathers was such an interesting record, with its indie, pop and electronic sensibilities, that we just had to get the thoughts of the man behind it, Dimitris Papadatos, otherwise known as KU. We managed to track the Greek wizard down and quiz him on his past, present and future.
We have a quick chat and e-coffee with Leeds’ indie-pop oddballs The Wednesday Club about their music, the importance of humour and art. We reviewed their latest album, Passing Strange, over yonder.
Last year, Mauro Remiddi released his first album under the name Porcelain Raft. Strange Weekend was a fascinating, astral collection of songs that caught the attention of many with their striking rhythms and infectious melodies. We were able to speak with Mauro and talk to him about where he goes from here.
Fairly highly touted by British media publications, dark indie rockers The Domino State spoke to Noted as they prepare their second album, off the back of their well-received 2010 release Uneasy Lies The Crown. The album was a collection of intense, loud and decidedly British indie songs with shoegaze tendencies, and it was no wonder they caught the attention of so many. Three years on – what’s changed? And where do they go next?
It is with great bewilderment and mental abandonment that on this cold March eve, we are able to relay to you, the faithful partisans of n0ted, an exchange we had with ULTIMATE SLAYMASTER. Regrettably, we are not able to unequivocally say that it even occurred – such is the aberrant nature of our discourse – nevertheless, here it is, in all its blaze and bravura.
