q and also a :: USF
Jason and Kyle of USF 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?
j: “Phaedra” by Gun Outfit. It’s so damn beautiful.
k: The last song on the new Wild Beasts album. The whole thing is great, but that track leaves the best aftertaste.
q: What is your favorite beverage?
k: It’s pretty hard to beat a well brewed glass of sweet iced tea.
j: Tough question! Probably pure Florida Orange Juice.
q: What is your favorite band to see live?
j: Gobble Gobble, no doubt.
k: It would be dishonest to give a different answer. Best mini-tourmates ever.

q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?
Streamable: Return to Plastic People (September 2010) AKA FACT mix 182 (soundcloud)
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
k: I spent last month re-reading Kurt Vonnegut books, which I hadn’t read since high school and which totally hold up. Miserable Miracle by Henri Michaux, which is essentially a beautifully composed mescaline diary. And CTI Records stuff from the early 70’s, so a lot of Freddie Hubbard and Hubert Laws.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
j: We recently released a vinyl-only EP through a local label called Highfives and Handshakes, and we have a digi-single coming out this summer through Deathbomb Arc that’s got a real laid-back, spliff-in-a-Caddy kind of vibe.
k: And a full-length album with teeth and claws called The Spray, which should be out in the fall.
