Album de la Semaine

Double Negative

Interview de Low, par Clay Masters de NPR

The sound of Low has changed a lot since husband and wife Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker started the band in 1993. But its harmonies remain central to the band's music.
"As soon as we'd sing, and you would sing harmony, I thought, 'Wow this is beautiful,'" Sparhawk says.
Sparhawk and Parker are relaxing at home in Duluth, Minn. — the band's birthplace — after getting back from an overseas tour. Sparhawk plays guitar and Parker plays drums, with bassist Steve Garrington rounding out the trio. And while their singing has remained a constant, Low's sound has evolved in striking ways.
"They've gone from this quiet and somewhat haunting thing, to full on blaring rock songs that will make your hair stand on end," Chris Riemenschneider, Minneapolis'Star Tribune music critic, says.
Fellow Minnesota musician Dave Simonett of Trampled by Turtles is a long-time friend and collaborator of Parker and Sparhawk.
"They have done whatever they've wanted creatively their entire careers and taken so many risks on and off the stage," Simonett says. "You know, normally people get tamer as they get older, but I think they're getting more adventurous." Low's adventurous side is evident on its latest album, Double Negative, out now.
The band has been recording and performing for 25 years now, though Sparhawk and Parker have been married for even longer. And just as their music has changed over the course of time, so have their lives. The couple had already been touring for eight years when they had their first kid. Their two children are now teenagers.
"We just assumed that we're going to have these kids and we're just going to bring 'em [on tour]," Parker says. "If we'd had thought about it a lot, we probably would have decided not to do it."
One of the constants in Sparhawk and Parker lives, and in Low's music, has been faith. Sparhawk and Parker are Mormon, and you can hear spirituality in their lyrics. In "DJ," a track from Low's 2015 album Ones and SixesSparhawk sings, "You want religion, you want assurance / A resurrection, some kind of purpose / You have the vision, you opened your eyes / A complication, you should have looked twice." And although Sparhawk and Parker note that they've never set out to write a religious song, it seems that they've also never set out to not write one.
"I think our music a lot of the time struggles with, 'Who am I? What is truth? What is the correct path when you don't really understand what it should be as much as you have hope that it would have at some point.'" Sparhawk says.
On "Quorum," the opening track of Double Negative, Sparhawk sings of putting away a book. "The book representing the idea that what's going on is inevitable, that it's already written," he says after a moment of hesitation. "I refuse that. There has to be something you can decide to do to change the future."
Sparhawk and Parker seem confident that they'll be able to keep doing what they've been doing in Low's music. But in life, they're adjusting to something they seem less confident about: Their oldest just graduated from high school. "Off to college and then we'll be alone with a 14-year-old," Parker says, "I have no idea how that's going to pan out."

Album de la Semaine

Young Widows
Decayed Ten Years of Cities, Wounds, Lightness and Pain

Interview des Young Widows, par Jon Robertson de Bearded Gentleman Music

B.G.M. – Young Widows have been a favorite band of mine for some time now. The thing that first struck me when I heard your music was just the overall dark, tight, and heavy feel. What are some of the influences that shaped the band’s sound?
Evan Patterson – Appreciate the kind words. Influences come and go. Today, I might want to make a song inspired by Furry Lewis. Tomorrow, a song inspired by Throbbing Gristle. But most of the time, we get together and create with no direction or purpose other than to solely create new music that we feel compelling.
How have the various side projects Old Baby, Early Age, or Jaye Jayle affected Young Widows sound or writing process?
Jaye Jayle and Old Baby have highly affected me. The writing process for Young Widows is basically still the same, but since starting my other bands, I’m more open to using my voice as if it was an additional instrument. Words and lyric are valid and equally as important. The melody is why I listen to and create music. It took years for me to understand what I’m capable of. I attribute the majority of my progression to Kevin Ratterman’s influence during the recording of In and Out of Youth and Lightness and Jonathan Wood, who is my fellow bandmate in Old Baby and Jaye Jayle.
Easy Pain seems to combine the ferociousness of Old Wounds, with the slow minimal somberness of In and Out of Youth and Lightness. How would you say the new album fits in with your overall sound?
Fits like a glove.
Describe the writing and recording process for Easy Pain.
We can’t give away our secrets.
My favorite track off of the new album is “Doomed Moon”, I love the intro and how heavy the song is right out of the gates! What are you doing to create the noise at the beginning of the song? Is it just a guitar effect?
Thanks again. I have these loop pedals, a reverb pedal, and a volume nob on my guitar. Twist and stomp and there you have it. 
Do you have any favorite songs from the new album?
The “Last Young Widow” is probably the most pleased I’ve been with the use of a poem that I wrote last year and a riff that I’ve had for 4 or 5 years lingering in the back of my mind. When songs come together with such ease, that’s what I like to call “magic”.
Easy Pain only consists of eight tracks. This is an aspect that I really enjoy about your albums, they are very concise and devoid of any ‘filler tracks’. Is this intentional? Or do you tend to only include the songs you’ve written during a certain writing session?
Ideally, we intend to project a mood that doesn’t get disrupted. Even if we might be happier with a song that doesn’t make the cut for the album sequence than songs that made the cut, the mood is always the most important.

The artwork for all of your albums seem to be variations of each other. Is there anything behind the ongoing theme for your cover art?
No theme, besides visual cohesion. 
Any chance I can get a custom variation drawn up so I can get it as a tattoo?
I have no control or say in what anyone chooses to tattoo or get tattoos of. 
Young Widows have been releasing music through Temporary Residence for your past three albums. How did this relationship come to be?
Jeremy (deVine) was raised in Louisville and I met him when I was 11 or 12 skateboarding outside of a show. 2007 I wrote him and email, we reconnected. Eventually, we began to work together.
The band premiered / played Easy Pain in its entirety back in January way before the release date. How did this idea come about? 

Saint Vitus Bar, invited us to play two shows. We decided to perform Easy Pain. It’s that simple.
You guys have recently been on tour where you have been playing Old Wounds in its entirety. What was the motivation behind this, does it take you back in time?
Performing Old Wounds was enjoyable. I don’t see us doing that again in the near future. Performing our most recently written music is always our preference. 
You just finished a tour with Helms Alee and recently released a split 12” with them. Are you good friends with the band? Are these songs outtakes from Easy Pain?
Ben (Verellen) and I met on my first west coast tour in 2000. He was playing bass and singing in Harkonen and I was playing guitar in The National Acrobat. Since then, we have toured with each others bands and been fortune enough to be able to share a large majority or our musical journeys together. Ben also built my guitar amplifiers.
You guys are playing Salt Lake City June 21st. Seriously stoked for this show. Do you have anything special planned for this tour?
Looking forward to stopping by. Every tour and every show is special. 
Any bands / albums out right now that you guys are really digging that we need to know about?
Recent records are a tough. I mostly listen to older records. The Mark Lanegan Anthology recently came out. I’ve been a fan for some years now, but it’d be a perfect introduction for a new listener.  Zomes most recent record speaks to me in ways that most music can’t and never will, it’s called Time Was. Been listening to Endless Boogie‘s Long Island pretty often and David Lynch’s The Big Dream got my vote for best album of 2013. That covers the past few years of new releases for me.

Album de la Semaine

Selofan - Vitrioli

Interview de Selofan, par Elena Savlokhova de Aught Mag

In one of your interviews you mention that you ‘are inspired by the extremes of passions’. What is your personal definition of ‘passion’?
Joanna: Passion is any kind of feeling that gets you really high and allows you to reach the point where you are nothing but yourself. You should dare and go for it, because it won’t come for you.
What do you appreciate the most in each other?
Joanna: He is my man for life. I appreciate his talent and his sensibility. I love his music. I deeply believe that he is one of the greatest around, even though it might sound strange to say so.
Dimitris: It feels like we are one person.
What makes Athens so unique from other places for you?
Joanna: Athens, like Kiev, is very unique. Most cities look similar, but Athens, or Kiev, are still…
Dimitris: They’re still original.
Joanna: Yes, they’re still untouched by globalisation, they have a unique feeling about them: the architecture, the lifestyle, people’s mentality. It’s difficult to explain the feeling of a city if you haven’t experienced it.
You compare Greece with a ‘long lasting but hopeless marriage’. Did you ever consider moving and living somewhere else?
Joanna: I used to live in Germany for a few years, I had a good time and I considered staying there, but then I had to go back for some life-changing personal reasons. I didn’t regret it. Home is where the heart is and my heart is in Athens. I think I will be monogamous and stay in this hopeless marriage forever.
If falling in love would be something you could see, what would it look like?
Joanna: For me, it’s him actually [Dimitris], his face.
Dimitris: The same. When I see Joanna – it’s love.
You’ve said that ‘Cine Romance’ is about life after midnight. What is the most magical thing about the night for you?
Joanna: We’ve spent some years clubbing, going out, and everything that is connected to it – all the excesses. We have a lot of tracks on the topic. Because, you know, daytime is for everyone, it’s the same for us all, but during the night you can be whoever you choose to be.
Dimitris: People just feel free to express themselves more. In the darkness everything looks more romantic.
What is your biggest challenge in life?Joanna: To stay together until the end.
Tell us a funny or bizarre story that happened throughout your musical career. 
Dimitris: The girl who gave Joanna all of her jewelry. She was crying and giving away her necklace as a gift.
Joanna: This isn’t unusual in Mexico. People are like that, they have this thing where they give you their personal belongings. It’s very sweet. But a funny story… Hard to think of something with so much going on all the time.
Dimitris: Mostly it’s always fun after the show. We have friends everywhere and it’s always nice to see them again. Once we forgot the belt for the bass guitar, there wasn’t one in the venue, so a girl made one with a piece of rope.
Joanna: Yes, right before the concert! We love it, we will even use it tonight, because we forgot to bring a belt, again.
What is fucked up about the world of today?
Joanna: Communication between people is quite artificial these days, it’s not direct anymore.
Dimitris: Everyone is living on Facebook, no one really talks to each other – you go out and everyone is stuck in their screens.
Joanna: Also the political and economical crisis, which we have in our country. For example, to have this extreme gap between the rich and the poor… I think politicians are psychotic personalities and sooner or later, this whole thing will lead us to a zero point.
Things you can’t unthink. 
Joanna: I always think about the end. Like the end of all things, of us, of what comes after life. It sounds pessimistic but I’m into this topic at this moment in my life, because of a loss of a beloved person.
What question do you hate answering the most?
Joanna: What does ‘Selofan’ mean. So I hope this is not your next question!
Well now we can cross it out. Any others?
Joanna: Like the usual ones, like ‘when did you start with the band?’. You know, the trivial stuff.
Dimitris: It’s better to be asked questions about matters of life.
You put in a lot of effort into music videos. Tell us a bit about the creative process.
Joanna: We are lucky to have such amazing friends, because all of our videos have zero budgets, it’s all about having an idea and good friends to actualize it, friends who are really talented and ready to transform themselves. Shootings are always fun, perhaps due to the fact of the missing professionalism, so the editing demands the most effort. But again a good friend who does the editing is always doing miracles.
Dimitris: It’s nice because we always help each other out, we are close friends with the other bands of our label Fabrika Records, we contribute ideas and even act in each others videos. It all works better this way. Everything is DIY
We spoke to Drab Majesty earlier this year and they’ve mentioned how they participated in a video with you back in Athens.Joanna: Yes, they acted in the new fantastic video of She Past Away and it was another wonderful experience for all of us.
What is the difference between your stage persona and your normal life self? Is there a duality present?
Joanna: I think once you’re on stage it’s all mixed up. We dig deep into this scene and this type of music for many-many years, so it’s our lifestyle. It’s not a solely theatrical impersonation. Of course, on stage I put a bit more makeup on etc. But the essential things remain the same.
What was the worst piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Joanna: I don’t really follow advice. I am open to criticism, it helps improve oneself if it comes from the right people, but by nature I wouldn’t directly react to any kind of ‘advice’.
Why do people hate what is not them?
Joanna: Because they cannot recognise it as their own. It doesn’t only feel foreign to them but sometimes even dangerous.
What interests you outside of music?
Joanna: Our whole life is based around music. Professionally we run a synthesizer shop in Athens and we spend 10 hours per day over there, so our life is music.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
Joanna: I have been asked more than once if I’m a girl or a boy and I regard it as a compliment. Not to be fixed in one image makes people look more interesting. I guess it happens because of my heavy makeup.
Dimitris: For me, it’s when people tell me that they feel it in their hearts when I sing.
What is one thing about you that would surprise us?
Joanna: Well you have to stay at our gig and find out for yourselves.
What is your definition of beauty? 
Joanna: To feel well about yourself and to be happy with your life – the internal. If you feel good inside, if you are satisfied with who you are, then it reflects on the outside world.
What about ugliness?
Joanna: I find beauty in ugliness. I prefer those who have big noses, scars, or whatever else is considered ‘unusual’. ‘Ugly’, for me, is someone who doesn’t respect others.
What is something you never want to do ever again in your life?
Dimitris: I don’t think we should say this in public haha.
What question would you like to be asked at an interview and what would your answer be? Is there something you would like people to know about you?
Dimitris: We prefer not to give interviews, but I think it would be nice if people knew that our music will always be our own personal psychotherapy and we are more than happy that all you people, who follow us, share the same feelings.
