q and also a :: ANTIMAGIC

Marcia and Ted of ANTIMAGIC 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?

m: You Got Lucky (youtube) by Tom Petty.

t: “Same Old Scene” by Roxy Music, from their much-maligned Flesh & Blood album from 1980. It’s serves as the opening and closing music of the film Times Square also from 1980. Total ear candy perfection, but still kinda weird. A heavily reverbed Ferry vocal with little of his trademark vibrato, makes him sound like a ghost in a genuinely creepy way.

q: What is your favorite beverage?

m: I like iced tea, and I like Old Grand Dad, in separate glasses please.

t: Scalding hot black coffee.

q: What is your favorite band to see live?

m: Future Islands, can never see those guys play enough. Also YellowFever, their singer has a rad voice.

t: Talk Normal and The Psyched fer sure; so many good ones going right now – really enjoyed Heavy Cream a few weeks back as well, Parts And Labor, ZULUS

q: What is your favorite venue in NYC (if applicable)?

m+t: Death By Audio. Nicest folks, great sound, rad environment and we’ve always been paid. The best.

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

m: There’s a new exhibit at The Natural History Museum called The World’s Largest Dinosaurs that we’re both really stoked about. My mom just emailed me about it actually. Check it out.

t: Watching art and music documentaries on Netflix Instant – it’s like the only thing that they’ve instant-ized completely and apparently there’s an obscure documentary about almost any band or artist you could possibly be interested in. I just saw “Athens Inside And Out” for the first time, which was thrilling for contemporary ted the Pylon super fan and 8th grade ted the over-zealous R.E.M. apologist. Really well made, by turns heartbreaking and completely inspiring. I also watched a great one about The Doors recently at my girlfriend’s insistence that really did convince me to stop being such a naysayer on those guys.

Touch Me (Smother Brothers Comedy Hour) (youtube) by The Doors

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

m+t: We’re having a 7″ release show on April 25th with our dear and talented friends The Psyched and YVETTE! We’re super stoked to finally have finished screenprinting the jackets and assembling everything. We’re also perilously close to finally finishing our eternally forthcoming 2nd full length, which we can barely contain our excitement about. Seriously.
