In 13 months, we played 284 shows and put out two albums. When it was done, I was thinking, ‘Well, now we’re just hitting our stride.’ But the other guys were like, ‘Well, I’m going to go home and get married,’ or, ‘I’m going to go back to grad school.’ I was the only one who didn’t have anything going on. — ‘A sad psychedelic dance party’ | Cityview
400luxtian asked: Do you like Charli XCX?
i like some elements of what she does. her sound is quite ..glittery, which i’m not generally into, but i think ariel rechtshaid did awesome work on that record.
thefbdc asked: where is nordpolen in your sy article? or jonas game? or joel alme? or team rockit?
they’re really good, i have their music, and i definitely covered jonas game and joel alme on the old pitchfork forkcast blog (it’s on archive.org but not online anymore). there had to be some omissions— the article was really long as it is!— so i focused on the stuff that honestly meant the most to me. i don’t speak swedish, so i’m sure that’s part of the problem. do you have any particular favorite tracks i should revisit? happy to! i’m obviously a huge sy fan but i don’t claim my knowledge is definitive, how could it be?
