q and also a :: XETAS

 
 
Austin, TX’s own XETAS sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.
 
 
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

david: Gummy by Brockhampton off Saturation II


 
 
jay: Tom Petty “Freefalling”


 
 
kana: I also like Saturation II. All the songs.


 
 
 
 
q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?

d: Nirvana – Incesticide


 
 
j: And Justice for All – Metallica


 
 
k: Smashmouth – Astrolounge

[no smashmouth embed, sorry kana]

ed. note: you can google Smashmouth if you really want to listen to Smashmouth, ok?
 
 
 
 
q: Is there an album you wished you knew about when you were younger?

d: Dead Moon – In the Graveyard


 
 
j: Fear of a Black Planet by Public Enemy


 
 
k: Minutemen – Double Nickels on the Dime


 
 
 
 
q: What is the last album that you purchased?
 
 
d: Some goofy Halloween record, and the Pretty Shitty demo tape


 
 
j: a Supertramp – Breakfast in America tape.
 
 
k: I bought a couple records off my friend Joe, a Lee Perry LP, a Bollywood Slide Guitar compilation, an Echo and the Bunnymen LP.


 
 

 
 

 
 
 
 
q: What is the best thing about your homebase, Austin, TX? And the worst?

d: The best thing is the creative community, and my least favorite thing are the police and how they handle the homeless and addict population downtown.
 
 
j: The worst is the way the city treats musicians as a disposable asset, and maybe the oversaturation of bands, but that’s also a good thing, cause having good bands around us makes us step up our game.
 
 
k: I like the community and the weather, I don’t like the way lower class and middle class communities are being stifled and pushed out. I think the local government could be more proactive and work with musicians instead of using them as political props.
 
 
 
 
q: What should we know about The Tower?

d: It’s for sale now! It speaks for itself. It’s the best thing we’ve done so far.
 
 
j: It’s the first record I’m on!
 
 
k: I did the tarot card artwork!
 
 
Listen.
