q and also a :: DONE

The pretty much ungoogleable band known as DONE sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.

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

Kent: “Ghost Ship” on the new Blur album is my first song of the summer, but I recently had a dream in which Kendrick Lamar and I rode roller coasters together so I think “These Walls” is probably the real answer.

Ino: Rave On, by Cults (my favorite band) is constantly in my head.

Steph: I came home from work the other day to find my roommates three hours deep into Tuvan throat singing videos on YouTube, so I guess the last song I reeeeeeally heard was “Chiraa-Khoor” by Huun Huur Tu.

Sean: Miguel‘s new song “The Valley” is the filthiest thing ever recorded and I love it so much. Otherwise in terms of “deep listening” Ino, Stef and I got drunk a few weeks ago and listened to Einstein On The Beach and now all our lyrics are just a series of numbers.

q: What is your favorite way to listen to music, and how do you usually listen to music?

K: A good walking or biking soundtrack. Making A to B more enjoyable is the best use of music for me.

I: I enjoy listening to full albums while staring straight ahead in deep contemplation. How I usually listen to music is the Cults (my favorite band) radio station while I’m bartending.

St: My favorite way to listen to music is mixtapes on a walkman, but usually it’s just various girly Pandora stations (lately: Delta 5 and Bikini Kill) I put on at work or while studying.

Se: Through undamaged headphones / through damaged headphones.
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?

K: Dagger Shores.

I: Although I have never seen Cults (my favorite band) live, I imagine they would be. Otherwise, Clean Girls.

St: Either Kelly Clarkson or Dan Deacon or our friends in No Honeymoon.

Se: Yvette.

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

K: I really miss the National in Richmond. Great sound, and you could see see big and/or local acts there depending on the night. As far as NYC I never really have a bad time at The Silent Barn and I’m pretty excited about this new place Aviv – feels like reliving the true punk basements of my youth.

I: Tough one. Does Cults (my favorite band) run one here? Otherwise probably Silent Barn or Palisades.

St: I love going to shows at Lincoln Center.

Se: Silent Barn rules #ripdba.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

K: Mad Max: Fury Road.

I: Cults.

St: Tuvan throat singing.

Se: Jillian Tamaki’s “Sexcoven” for the Frontier series is my favorite comic of the year right now, go to Vinyl Fantasy in Bushwick and pick up a copy ASAP.

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

K: False advertising. Marriages can be saved by clear and open lines of communication and in some cases professional counseling.

I: [saxophone emoji].

St: I am teaching myself to throat sing.

Se: I think we’re going full dub this winter.
