Featured Artist: Slouch
Slouch: Selections from Labor and Travels
Runtime: 17:32
Format: 128k MP3

Ian Bradley, AKA Slouch talks about his newest releases Labor and Travels.

 

   
"Labor was originally intended to be an LP, but so much time went by between the Viva release and these releases that there was a stark evolution between the older material and the last few tracks I'd made before the release date. I was shooting for a cohesive body of music, but I wasn't comfortable dumping the tracks that didn't fit in. I still thought they held up on a different level, so I decided to give them their own place. Travels became an outlet for that."
   

He had some interesting things to say about the biz. I talked with him briefly about piracy, fair use, and the value of music.

   
"The way I see it, the only people who really suffer from piracy are the people in the middle... not unknown, and not quite famous. If you're not making any money... it's probably pretty hard to find your album, and therefore pretty hard to steal it. If you're raking it in, you should be doing fine from your shows, merchandise, etc."

I talked breifly with Radio Scotvoid about CURIOS and DJ Noel Snow.

"This recorded set was the sound and vibe coming from us before and after our guest artists that we had come in to perform at CURIOS."

"Noel and I met at a Salem Record Exchange - I think I've talked about this record store before - loads of quality vinyl - anyways, I was buying the original 12" of 'Brother's Gonna Work It Out' - by Willie Hutch and he was buying 'The Breaks' by Kurtis Blow... anyways we got talking about tunes... and we've been great buddies ever since... Noel Snow is his real name and his cooking in Beverly, Mass. is like an institution - He's been feeding Beverly for over 12 years... with burritos as well as quality beats."

Also, check out this video Eastern Border put together to compliment the DJ set. These and other images are projected while the DJs spin.

Featured Artist: 25ThC

25ThC talks about his newest record DH: 12 Dark Productions, a collaboration with London artist Daniel Heath.

"DH: 12 Dark Productions is darker musically than Playing With My Mistress as it was written very specifically with Daniel Heaths' artwork as the inspiration, and the music reflects the mood of his artwork." -25ThC

25ThC let me design the album artwork for DH.

The full album is available for download.

Byrne Interviews Yorke
There's an interview on WIRED.com... David Byrne interviewing Thom Yorke. Check out the audio on the right... the transcript belies the real interview, IMO.
