I love reading those pieces in magazines where artists are asked what’s on their stereo / iPod etc. I remember Buck 65 recommending John Fahey for example. So with that in mind, here’s a list of recommendations from artists I’ve interviewed lately. Hope you find something of interest. I’m digging Holy Fuck-recommended The Oscillations.
Foals – Edwin
“There’s a guy from Bristol called Peverelist who makes the most amazing rhythmically complex music that has a dancefloor edge but just blows my head off. There’s a new Charlottefield record out and another band called Dananananaykroyd. A weird name, a fucking weird name [Note: it took me a long long time to Google those fuckers]. It’s kind of like Fugazi and Minutemen.”
“A Wizard, a True Star by Todd Rundgren, Pacific Ocean Blue by Denis Wilson, Aladdin Sane by David Bowie , Bob Dylan’s Desire as well as two soundtracks from Australian psychedelic surf movies, one called Morning of the Earth, another called Crystal Voyager.”
Holy Fuck – Graham
