Album de la Semaine : Forget Cassettes - O Cursa

Forget Cassettes

O Cursa

Interview de Beth Cameron, par Mackenzie de Randomville

Randomville: What influences do you draw from for your music?
Beth Cameron: This will sound really vague, but it really depends on what we’re into at the time. Like right now there’s a lot of Depeche Mode, Dave Brubeck and Sade around. It’s funny, because for me, my vocals are never really influenced or disturbed by what I’ve been pumping through my brain, but my guitar playing changes. I just find that to be interesting – I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing.
RV: Who or what inspires you and your music?
BC: PJ Harvey is my all time favorite as far as music goes. Everything she does is amazing. I am definitely inspired mostly by my environment. Whether it’s the season, what my friends (in bands) are playing, what’s going on at work, what book I’m reading, if my dog is depressed or not. You know, things like that.
RV: Has it always been your dream/goal/desire to be a musician?
BC: My desire, yes. I keep my goals very attainable when it comes to music. Music is too three-dimensional for me to have any idea what’s going to be going on in a couple months, let alone a year. It works for me to focus more on my ability and satisfaction as a musician rather than if this is going to turn out to be a career.
RV: What, if any, obstacles have you encountered as a woman in the music business? Do you feel like you are treated as an equal peer or the “girl who plays guitar” stereotype?

BC: That certainly depends on whom I’m around. I have male musician friends who tell me that I’m their “guitar hero (heroine)” and that I am doing something “different”(whatever that means – again, good or bad?). I definitely feel equal to them. Some men and women feel really threatened by me as a guitar player and especially being in a two-piece where I carry at least 50% of the band. I would say that I am separate but equal. I am probably put into this middle category because of my gender. You know that whole “she’s a really great musician, but she’s a girl” label. Anyway, being female and being in a good band is a privilege. I do get really pissed about the myth that men have better hand-eye coordination than women. I get really excited when I see a really good female drummer.
RV: Have you always been a part of the Nashville scene? What is the Nashville scene like right now?
BC: I’ve been in bands in Nashville since I was 14. I’m really trying to get into the art scene now. My boyfriend is a photographer so I’m trying to learn about art and how to see it and the history. It’s pretty interesting. It’s all intertwined, music and pictures, music and paintings. But the music scene here is good. Some really great bands here: Apollo Up, the Whole Fantastic World, and De Novo Dahl – to name a few.
RV: What’s your opinion on the state of music today? What do you love? What do you hate?
BC: I love what my friends are doing. There are very few bands out right now that I like. I’m pretty much still listening to what I was listening to two years ago except that now I’ve deferred to older records. I think it’s funny that a few years ago we were like, “Why can’t an indie band get on a major and play stadiums?” and now they are everywhere. Popping up on commercials on TV? I mean for some of the bands I think it’s great (like Modest Mouse or The Walkmen), but some of these other bands: Yikes. And there are so many of them. I get scared sometimes that they might be planning a take over. I don’t know – maybe they’ve already won. I really love Justin Timberlake, though. I think he’s so talented.
RV: Have you accomplished what you wanted to with Forget Cassettes and your sound? What more do you hope to accomplish?
BC: I think, sonically, we are where we want to be, but it will change. We will have to for you to stay interested. I think the more we challenge ourselves to stretch as far as we can, being two people, instrumentally than the more satisfied we will be. The more mature our sound will be.
