The Holy Bible. Richie Edwards Legacy

February 1, 2015 marks exactly 20 years since the day when Richie Edwards checked out of his room at the London Embassy Hotel and disappeared without a trace, right before the start of the planned American tour. Two weeks later, his empty car was found at Seversky Bridge.

A little talk about love. Interview with Father John Misty

For many years, Joshua Tilman writes songs: for a while he was a drummer of Fleet Foxes, and after that he recorded 2 albums as Father John Misty.

Due to the fact that the interview was taken on the eve of Valentine’s Day, Stefan Greiner devoted the column “A Little Talk About …” to the topic of love. This is no coincidence: Tilman’s album “I Love You, Honeybear” is filled with love, oysters, sex and massacres.

When things break. Interview with Death Cab For Cutie

The American indie rock band Death Cab For Cutie has so far been inextricably linked to Christopher Wall. “Kintsugi” is the first album where Walla is not a producer or co-author of songs.
Benjamin Gibbard told Carlotta Aizela why this was supposed to happen and why, despite the fact that he sings mostly sad songs, Ben is the happiest person on Earth.

Benjamin, I’m sorry, but without preambles: Death Cab For Cutie without Chris Wall? Seriously?
The album is the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the group, which is clear as God’s day. This is our first record with a new producer, with a man from the side. The first 7 albums we wrote with Chris. Now, most likely, we will never work together again, and in principle we will not write music with him. Continue reading
