I got the chance to interview vocalist Brandon Butler and guitarist Marc Okubo of Veil of Maya during Mayhem Fest. We talked about their roles in the band, songwriting inspirations and the band’s next album coming this fall. You can check out the video below:

(Note: I realize the video and audio are not of the greatest quality, and at one point, it is very hard to hear Marc over the din of other people in the room. I did my best with the camera I had. Most of the interview is clear and salvageable, however.)

We got the extreme pleasure of interviewing Chris Freeman of Manchester Orchestra during the Salt Lake City stop of their tour. Hours before putting on a simply electric show, Freeman sat down with us to talk about the recording process of their new album, Cope, their independent record label and the possibilities of a rock opera. Manchester Orchestra was joined on their Cope Tour by Balance and Composure and Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band.

As a long time fan of the emo-revival band, Citizen, I was absolutely ecstatic to get a change to interview the band on their tour with Polar Bear Club. The tour stopped in Boise at The Shredder with Diamond Youth and Sainthood Reps.

I sat down with Nick Hamm and Eric after their set to talk about Run For Cover Records, the recording process for Youth with Will Yip, food on tour and much more. Check it out  below:

Through realms of genres, tastes and preferences, varying types of music inspire an array of individuals. There are some artists however that can transcend preference, invoking a positive response in even some of the most musically partisan of people. Julianna Barwick brings an eerie and majestic beauty to her style, seducing the soul with cathedral-esque loops and layers to her songs. She is on her way to Boise.
