q and also a :: The Forms
For the next q and also a, Alex Tween of The Forms sent us these here answers.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
a: bad romance (wiki) by lada gaga. i think that’s the song all of america has last heard.
q: What is your favorite food?
a: morningstar farms sausage patties. my freezer at any given point has a pile of boxes at least 5 high.
q: What is your favorite band to see live?
a: that’s a tossup between the national and dirty projectors. in general most concerts are pretty boring i think, except when you love 90%-100% of the songs. then it’s awesome.
Fake Empire (mp3) by The National
Fucked for Life (mp3) by Dirty Projectors
q: What is your favorite venue in NYC (if applicable)?
a: i love bell house and music hall of williamsburg.
q: OK, President Obama appoints you as the first Secretary of Culture, to whom do you give your first grant?
a: i’d start with noah kalina, a really brilliant photographer based in brooklyn.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
a: a new EP called derealization will be out in the spring. it has lots of contributions from people in other local bands we really love. we built a studio in ridgewood, queens and recorded it there with scott solter, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.
Here are a couple tracks from The Forms‘ latest self-titled album.
Knowledge In Hand (mp3)
Getting It Back (mp3)
And here are a couple tracks from their earlier album, Icarus.
We will post something from derealization as soon as it is available.
