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.
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.
Se: Through undamaged headphones / through damaged headphones.
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?
K: Dagger Shores.
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.
St: I love going to shows at Lincoln Center.
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.
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.
DONE just released it’s new EP called Six Songs To Save Your Marriage. You can pay what you want for the digital EP @ donewithmusic.bandcamp.com right now. It may be available on cassette at some point in the near future.
DONE were on GTRT last month. They played Immigrant Song @ 33 1/3 RPM. It was fantastic.
BONUS: Sailcat (mp3)
