6 Interview Outfits That Are Anything but Typical

First impressions are everything!The real world seems like a scary place, and what’s worse is that at our age, everyone seems equally qualified for every job. So often, two candidates have similar grades and are equally knowledgeable, with similar work experience and brilliant resumes. So, what sets one apart from the other? How could anyone possibly pick between the two? This is where the interview comes in; the chance to meet a member of the company face to face and show them what a wonderful ...

CS Interview: Pete Holmes, Madeline Wise and Judd Apatow on Crashing Season 3

CS Interview: Pete Holmes Madeline Wise, and Judd Apatow on Crashing Season 3 “It’s super surreal to cast someone the looks a little bit like my mother, and someone who looks a lot like my father and a house that looks a lot like the house I grew up in,” says Pete Holmes, the co-creator and star of Crashing. The series, which returns to HBO this Sunday, is a semi-autobiographic look at Holmes own life, both on stage as a struggling comic in New York City and off. Ahead of the show’s third se...

In Conversation: Kim Gordon & Steve Gunn

Kim Gordon has long been one of our most intimidating rock stars. From her work with the legendary Sonic Youth to her side gig Free Kitten and current project Body/Head, she's always been able to wield harsh noise, anti-patriarchal vitriol, and rock star cool with ease. But even though she can summon the feedback to … More »

Locked and Loaded: Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud Discuss Their Classic 1988 Hip-Hop Debut

In the late '80s, they rode the cresting wave of the hip-hop duos. Likely born from the synergistic energy produced by seminal acts like Eric B. & Rakim, Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud were one of many rap duos competing for a place at the DJs turntable. They hit one nifty cut out of the park with the snappishly urban strut of "Do the James", a jam that tipped its hat to the legendary James Brown as well as the hyperkinetic basement hip-hop parties that were especially popular in the Bronx at th...

Band To Watch: Fontaines D.C.

There's been something happening in Dublin. Across 2014 and 2015, a group called Girl Band started to generate international buzz thanks to their idiosyncratic blend of noise-rock, post-punk, and techno-inspired rhythms. Here was a new sound, one nobody associated with a specific generation or scene in Ireland. Girl Band then went silent for … More »

Yob and Near-death Metal Experiences

None Riding the tram out to the suburbs of Bordeaux to talk with Yob's Mike Scheidt before their concert in 2018, I resign myself to the fizz and pop of excitatory and anxiogenic processes bustling about in my gut and brain. I'm nervous because, later, when I press 'Record' on the dictaphone I've borrowed to complete my disguise, the first thing I'll tell Mike is that I'm acting under false pretenses: I've never conducted an interview before. Blagging an interview slot just happens to be the be...

Astralingua Stunningly Isolates and Introspects on "Space Blues" (interview + premiere)

None The term "Astralingua" refers to the language of stars and astral planes, and on their latest record, Safe Passage, the "Nomadic space-folk" pair creates invasively introspective and elegant music to exemplify their namesake. Comprised of composer/vocalist Joseph Andrew Thompson and back-up vocalist Anne Rose Thompson, Astralingua ensures that each of the LP's 11 tracks lingers with awe-inspiring sounds and arresting soul, ranking alongside meditative masters like Nosound, the Autumn Cho...

Hunt Sales Sings About Love, Hate in "Angel of Darkness" (premiere + interview)

None Hunt Sales returns with a new album, Get Your Shit Together, on January 25 via Big Legal Mess through Fat Possum. The album, released under the name Hunt Sales Memorial, may be pre-ordered now. In addition to work with Todd Rundgren and Iggy Pop (he provides the unmistakable intro to "Lust For Life"), Sales was a founding member of Tin Machine with his brother Tony, David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels. He has also worked with Lowell Fulson, Bootsy Collins, Los Super Seven and has fronted a vari...

Foreigners' Rights in Japan: Interview with Activist and Writer Debito Arudou

None Debito Arudou (formerly David Aldwinckle) was born in California and raised in Geneva, New York. After spending a long period of residence in Japan, he became a citizen of that country. Frequently engaged in outspoken activism on the issues of anti-foreigner discrimination and racism in Japanese society, Arudou has written extensively on these topics for various publications, including his regular contributions to the Japan Times newspaper for over 15 years as well his web site Debito....

A Sense of Contentment: An Interview with Steve Mason

None With every new album, Steve Mason steps further from the enormous shadow cast by the critically lauded, commercially stunted, wholly brilliant the Beta Band. After losing himself in the immediate aftermath of the band's breakup in projects such as King Biscuit Time and Black Affair, Mason started a solo career that began with the introspective, electronica of 2010's Boys Outside and which now sees him release his new album About the Light.Mason's previous album, 2016's Meet the Humans was ...

Melissa Manchester Looks Back at 1985 and Her Synthpop Experiments

None The 1980s weren't particularly kind to the singer/songwriters who'd emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The recording studio became the producer's fiefdom and the acoustic music that had characterized the work of people like Joni Mitchell and Carole King became passé. Artists affected by these changes either attempted to move with the times or, like Laura Nyro, recorded far less frequently. Acoustic or semi-acoustic pop music was still around, but performers such as Suzanne Vega and...

Our Private Prisons: Interview with 'Still' Director, Takashi Doscher

None "I was very much wrestling with the question of time and our modern or not so modern definitions of relationships, love and monogamy, and even sexuality a bit" explains director Takashi Doscher of his narrative feature debut Still (2018). When hiker Lily (Madeline Brewer) loses her way on the Appalachian Trail, she stumbles onto an isolated farm and encounters a seemingly odd couple. While Ella (Lydia Wilson) is happy to take her in, Adam (Nick Blood) is initially less hospitable, and as ...

Director Max Martini on 'SGT. Will Gardner'

None SGT. Will Gardner (2019) is Max Martini's second film as writer-director, a two decade long pause following 1999's Desert Son. Martini, who has appeared in front of the camera across film and television since the '80s, plays here the title character also known as Ghost, an Iraq war veteran suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury.

Polite Movies? Not Interested: Karyn Kusama, Phil Hay, and Matt Manfredi on 'Destroyer'

None In one of the most uncharacteristic, gritty performances of her career, Nicole Kidman plays Erin Bell, a grizzled, self-destructive, veteran LAPD officer whose sordid past is revealed piece by tantalizing piece in Karyn Kusama's brutal, uncompromising cop drama, Destroyer (reviewed here on PopMatters). Co-writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi craft a slow-burn story that jumps around and jumbles Bell's timeline, following the emotional flow of her journey rather than its chronology. It's a st...

Mineral’s Chris Simpson On His Band’s New Book, New Music, Ancient Memories, & Enduring Legacy

Chris Simpson doesn't think he's ever met a casual Mineral fan, but the potential for millions of them briefly existed in the minds of people like Sylvia Rhone, Jimmy Iovine, and Clive Davis. Even your parents can probably name the careers shepherded by these legendary A&Rs: Santana, Bruce Springsteen, 2Pac, Eminem, Billy Joel, Aerosmith, Metallica, … More »

Have Patience: An Interview with Jane Weaver

None Though she has roots that run through the music history of Manchester and helped to shape some of the sounds associated with popular British music of the last two decades, Jane Weaver is just now taking her own turn in the spotlight. Her last three releases -- The Silver Globe (2014), The Amber Light (2015), and Modern Kosmology (2017) -- channel some of the styles she's explored since the late 1990s. But it is a trilogy of records that evokes a singular vision. Across these releases, she ...

Artist To Watch: SASAMI

Sasami Ashworth is determined to make it. In a sense, she already has. She's scored short films and commercials, taught in an elementary school, and collaborated in the studio with artists like Vagabon, Hand Habits, and Wild Nothing.

Porter's Head: Rapper Porter Ray on His Latest Hip-Hop Opus, 'Eye of the Beholder'

None His talent caught the eye and ears of a kindred spirit, Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets, who clearly saw much of himself in the young upstart. Indeed, Porter Ray possesses a similarly skewed vision of hip-hop upheld by his far more experienced mentor. But Ray is wise beyond his years, exhibiting a firm sense of self which translates effortlessly in the recording studio. Butler, also an A&R at Sub Pop Records, brought the young rapper onboard at the label in 2015. Ray'...

Quiet Riots, the Detroit indie rock royalty's eighth studio album, is on the cusp of release, prefaced by a DIY video for energetic lead single "If You Wanna Roll". In conjunction with that, the recently released film adaptation of singer-songwriter Josh Malerman's debut novel Bird Box is all the rage, with the Internet going mad over the Sandra Bullock-starring apocalyptic horror narrativ...

Mary Bragg Plays by Her Own Golden Rules on "Fixed" (interview + premiere)

None Mary Bragg knows the precise moment that motivated her to write the song "Fixed".Waiting on the ramp with her fourth-grade class to enter the cafeteria and go through the lunch line at Swainsboro Elementary School in Georgia, she felt uneasy while hearing the main topic of conversation."My classmates were talking about how much they weighed, and I weighed 30 pounds more than anyone else on that ramp," said Bragg, who grew up to become an accomplished Nashville singer-songwriter.
