q and also a :: Space Daze
Space Daze‘s Danny Rowland (whom you may also know from Seapony) sent us these high quality answers to our questions in this next q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
a: The last song I heard that made me feel feelings was every song on the Sun Kil Moon album, Benji. The last song I actually listened to was â€œDamp Faceâ€ by La Luz. I was listening to it on the bus right before my stop and then I took my headphones off. After I got off the bus I checked my mail. There were a couple of tapes I ordered from That Summer Feeling. The bands were Beverly and Lisa Prank, but I havenâ€™t listened to them yet. The first thing I wanted to do when I got home was soak my feet in a plastic tub full of hot water. This is what Iâ€™m doing now. Wait a second – I just heard some music playing in a passing car. Whatever that song was is the last song I heard.
Downloadable: Baby, Let Me Write Yr Lines (mp3) by Lisa Prank
q: What is your most common reaction to hearing your own music?
a: My reactions to hearing my own music are (a.) accomplishment/pride (b.) anger (c.) panic/embarrassment. I want to say that (a.) a sense of accomplishment is the most common.
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?
a: Of all the bands Iâ€™ve seen, Belle & Sebastian is the band Iâ€™ve seen the most. Iâ€™ve always enjoyed myself at their shows. The answer is Belle & Sebastian. They are my favorite band to see live.
q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?
a: I played a show with my band SEAPONY at Bruar Falls once and that was really great, but that place doesnâ€™t exist any longer. We also played at Littlefield and really liked it. The sound was good, it was a nice size, and the people were very nice.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
a: I hear tye-dye is making a comeback and thatâ€™s pretty exciting.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
a: Letâ€™s see here. I wrote/recorded a wave of songs this past spring and decided to release them. The name Space Daze is what I decided to name my imaginary band. I released a cassette on the label Beautiful Strange called Follow My Light Back Home. Itâ€™s on my Bandcamp, Spotify and iTunes. too. There is a video for my song “Line Up on the Solstice.â€ Colleen Green is in it. I don’t play shows at the moment and Iâ€™m not sure if I ever will.
