q and also a :: MIRACLES

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Adam and Baxter of MIRACLES sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of the q and also a series.

q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

a: Antimagic‘s “Shake Shake Shake” has been in heavy rotation all year. I rediscovered De La Soul‘s Stakes is High last week after not listening to it for a few years. It still rules.

b: For me, it’s a tie between Young Widows‘ “Old Skin” and “Breathe Life” by Heavy Winged. The former is a minute and a half, the latter is about 19. Both are equally rewarding, but for very different reasons.

Downloadables:
Shake Shake Shake (mp3) by Antimagic
Old Skin (mp3) by Young Widows

Breathe Life (soundcloud) by Heavy Winged

q: What is your favorite beverage?

a: The first cup of coffee in the morning.

b: Gotta go with either a dirty martini or a Manhattan when I get home from work.

q: What is your favorite band to see live?

a: I try never to miss The Psychic Paramount these days. Their drummer is super fun to watch, in that way that reminds me of the dude from Trans Am. He’s a beast. Check out their live video from Santos Party House for proof. Also, Lo Moda and Double Dagger from Baltimore are favorites live.

b: I’ll second, third, and fourth The Psychic Paramount. That Santos show made my torso turn into a column of light. Do the bands need to be in existence still? If no, I’d say Don Caballero, pre-American Don. They scared the absolute shit out of me. If yes, in addition to The Psychic Paramount, I’ll throw in Converge or Rosetta. Super earnest, super intense, super inspiring.

q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

a: Matt Rich‘s paintings. Jim Gallagher‘s collage work. Yoonha Park‘s videos for Small Black. But really, the culture yet to come, the end of global monoculture, the end of pattern exhaustion, a new and willful isolation, the culture quarantine. Art needs what is being celebrated in the slow/local/farm-to-table food movement – the rise of a hyperlocal style, instead of this global feeding frenzy for the next new thing whose beauty will be instantly commodified. To accomplish this, art and music would have to literally tune out globally and drop in locally, or something like that. That’s what we’re trying to get at with “Quarantine.”

b: I just think 2011 is proving itself to be an amazing year for music, live and recorded. The Psychic Paramount‘s new album is preposterously good, the new My Disco is super hypnotic, The Skull Defekts album with Dan Higgs is mind-bending, and the new Young Widows is somehow skeletal and ass-kicking at the same time. Then there’s new stuff from Liturgy, Burmese, INDIAN, The Body, Deafheaven…I could go on and on. All of these bands have such a fresh and idiosyncratic take on music, it’s incredibly invigorating to listen to.

Downloadables:
Closer (mp3) by My Disco
Fragrant Nimbus (mp3) by The Skull Defekts
Generation (mp3) by Liturgy
Headmaster (mp3) by Burmese

q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?

a+b: Two brand new tracks available here! Unfortunately, Chris Carson, who is responsible for the awesome drums on these songs, is focusing on solo stuff right now, so we’re writing new material with a couple of drummer friends and looking for a more permanent replacement. Drummers get in touch if you’re interested!
