Silver Morning

How do you write your music? Since my childhood I liked music. When I was a kid I just noticed it around. At age of 10 I began to buy my first CDs, at age 14 I began to look on the Internet to the artists that I heard when I was a kid. At the same age I started playing the guitar. At 16-17 I started creating my own simple things – chord progressions that I liked, some melodies. Suddenly at 19 I started writing songs. Without a reason. I just felt that ‘now I can, now I know enough to do it’. That’s how it started. What song of yours is the one you like the most? I like all of them, actually. But if you ask for the one. It’s ‘Close’. An instrumental song I wrote in 2012. The most beautiful one. It has everything I thought of and felt back then. That is why it’s my favorite. How do you write your music? I usually play around with my guitar, or Garage Band/Logic Pro. Then I find some interesting short musical combination and revisit it until I have something. Usually this something forms a basis for the song. After that I add things until I feel it’s complete. The last thing is to write lyrics, which usually takes around two weeks for me. I usually play around with my guitar, or Garage Band/Logic Pro. Then I find some interesting short musical combination and revisit it until I have something. What influences do you have? The influences are quite broad. Though the core are Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, The Killers, Nujabes, Pearl Jam, Red hot Chili Peppers. What´s the best experience you have had with your project? Finishing a song. Every time. When it’s done and you hear it for the first time – the final version, it’s always the best part. What plans do you have this year? To keep making music. If someone listens to it too, that’s great. If I’m the only one who likes it, that’s good too. Mention something you don´t like… Keep Reading

LOOLOWNINGEN&THE FAR EAST IDIOTS

When did the project begin? My band, LOOLOWNINGEN&THE FAR EAST IDIOTS, started 2010 after breaking up MAHIRUNO, since then we changed members and forms several times. For now, we are average, popular rock-form trio (E.Guitar, E.Bass, Drums). What song of yours is the one you like the most? I like “A Honeybee” very much, totally controlled balance and sound. Recenly we are interested in polyrhythm/cross-rhythm/irregular time/slip-beat, so “Shooting An Elephant” is much more the sound we make now, I think. How do you write your music? I love to reading a book, to appreciate pictures, as well as to listen to the music, and I translate them into our sound or song structure forcibly. What influences do you have? I love the Beatles, Pixies, Paul Gauguin, Henri Rousseau, and Franz Kafka. What´s the craziest experience you have had with your project? Not specially.. What plans do you have next? We are recording a new album now, hope to go to everywhere not only in Japan with it. Mention something you don´t like about your project. When we go tour, Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project. I give all of my time, passion to my band  What band, music project or solist from your city do you like? nhhmbase, Redd Temple, Doit Science, goat, Sa-Yu, They have totally new sound, rhythm, and style. If your project was a car, what model would it be? 4WD car because I don’t like well-paced road. What do you think of the song Nada – Zoé? – We love you and keep on rockin’! – Hi my name is Shigeru Akakura, I’m ninja and was in the Edo castle. thank you!

The Missing Leech

El proyecto empezó en 2007 tras el paso de haber formado parte de diferentes grupos como Marràs. Aunque lo de tocar solo ya venía del 1999 lo retomé en ese momento. The Missing Leech es un proyecto de una sola persona. En algunos momentos y sobretodo últimamente he realizado conciertos en formato de banda y así la música suena más como la tengo en mente. ¿Cuál es su canción favorita? La canción Somriu entró en mi primer disco editado en el 2009 y es en catalán – sonrie sería. Somriu Somriu somriu, està als teus ulls, és un moment de falsedat. Somriu somriu, està als teus ulls, la mentida ja ha arribat. Somriu somriu, està als teus ulls, és un moment de falsedat. Somriu somriu, està als teus ulls, la mentida ja ha arribat. Somriu Somriu somriu, està als teus ulls, és un moment de falsedat. ¿Cómo componen su música? Normalmente primero va la música y luego la letra. Con la guitarra acústica busco unos acordes repetitivos y voy improvisando cosas encima hasta que doy con ideas que me sirvan de hilo conductor. ¿Cuáles son sus influencias? Escucho muchos tipos de música. Soy muy ecléctico. Sobretodo me han influenciado propuestas de antifolk como Jeffrey Lewis, kiwi rock (Nueva Zelanda) como The Clean, folk punk como Patrik Fitzgerald, indie, Velvet Underground,… Mencionen la mejor experiencia que han tenido con su proyecto. Quizá la de haber podido compartir cartel con Daniel Johnston en Barcelona, Catalunya – España. También haber podido girar y hacer 18 tours a parte de tocar en el Primavera Sound de Barcelona. ¿Cuáles son sus planes este año? Ir de gira por EEUU. lástima que nos quedamos a California y no iremos a México a visitarles. Sacar el tercer disco en formato físico. ¿Qué es lo que menos les gusta de su banda? Que debería tocar y cantar mejor sin perder la originalidad que tiene la propuesta. Mencionen el sacrificio más grande que hayan hecho para hacer su música. Venir de tocar a Roma, Reikiavik o Dublín y llegar al aeropuerto e ir directamente a trabajar sin haber dormido.… Keep Reading

Sonic Masala Records
Australia/English/Label

Sonic Masala Records

Pretty simple really. It started back in December 2009 in Minehead, at the My Bloody Valentine-curated ATP festival A Nightmare Before Christmas. My mate Paul and I were up at 4 in the morning and he was making one of his (in)famous curries (they are actually really good) drinking beer and listening to music. I think I had put on Turnpike, this band from Australia that next to no one knows about but are brilliant, and we said we needed to do something about music, seeing as we spoke about it all the time, and spent so much money and effort in buying records and watching gigs. Sonic Masala the blog was born. Sonic Masala the gig night came out of a reaction against the myriad venues and gignights that wouldn’t pay the artists (even a lousy rider); and Sonic Masala the label (along with another guy, Nathan Pickels) from trying to give bands that were struggling to get heard a platform to create a tactile release. What song of yours is the one you like the most? Well this is fairly contentious, seeing as I haven’t written any of the songs and want to remain fairly impartial. So Ill just list my favourite song from each release: What influences do you have? It’s hard to pin down my musical influences, as the eclectic nature of the Sonic Masala roster clearly shows. I have a strong passion for the Australian music scene, and especially the fermenting sonic wasteland that is Brisbane, my hometown. But I love anything that gives me a strong emotional kick to the guts – whether it be something eloquent and devastating like Dirty Three, or something visceral and heart-thumping like Pale Heads (the new project featuring Tom from The Nation Blue) or Danyl Jesu. And it’s global – I will always support Aussie music first and foremost, I nevertheless am always looking far and wide – one of my favourite albums of last year was by a Serbian band called Vvhile. I don’t have time to hate music – if I hate it, I don’t listen to it. What´s the best experience you have had with your project? Being quoted in the Independent;… Keep Reading
