Joseph Arhtur interview with Northern Transmissions

Our Interview With Joseph Arthur

Well, in the case of the songs on Boogie Christ, almost all came out of poems so they are quite wordy, because the words drove the music. Usually I would write the other way around and find words to fit into music. It’s easier this way

Northern Transmissions Interviews MSMR

We love hearing remixes – we’re very proud of what we’ve created, but we’re not precious about it and are always curious to hear other people’s interpretations of our music. We’re big fans of Chvrches and knew they would crush it, but we were blown away by the result

Lady Lamb The Beekeeper Interview with Northern Transmissions

Our Interview With Lady Lamb The Beekeeper

The majority of the album was really inspired by daily life. At the time, writing was a real outlet for me to express myself. The surroundings in parts of Maine are quite inspiring also. When writing Ripley Pine, I was working in a video store

Our interview with Reed Juenger, Tom Eddy, and Jared Katz from Beat connection at SXSW 2015

Interview with Reed From Beat Connection

We’ve had a few comparisons to Sting, and I’ve got to say it must be somewhat subconscious.

There’s been moments when Stampen (the name of the studio) has felt amazing but also many times when it’s been super messy.

Northern Transmissions interviews Baptist Generals

Interview With Chris From Baptist Generals

Well it wasn’t so much that we shelved a 2005 attempt at an album, but more that life got in the way for a while after 2005. In Denton I got involved in a dispute with an out-of-town developer that was going to tear down some old buildings in town. Several of us organized against the project and by the time that got resolved — poof! — 2 and a half years had passed

Interview with Brian from Ex Cops

I think Emily and I always had plans to turn Ex Cops into a five piece. The guys that we brought in are all friends of ours, so we get on pretty well. We’re totally happy with the way things have gone

I usually just call it “experimental pop”, but I’ve called it other things as well. It depends on what kind of mood i’m in. I called us “glam rap” the other day. I like that a lot. Made me LOL. Trap Pop. Odd Pop. Queer Grunge. indie jock jams

Interview With Bill Ryder-Jones

It was pretty amazing. Very daunting, those people play the greats every day and having them look atyour scores can be overwhelming. I spent most of the recording day smoking outside and hiding
