Dirty Heads are about to release their new album Super Moon on August 9th, but just because the band recorded the album in Nashville, doesn’t mean the band has suddenly gone country. Dutty explains how recording live to tape in the music city created a unique vibe. Enjoy this interview at the East Coast 25th Anniversary of Vans Warped Tour.
Heavy rock may not be what most attendees think of when they create their line-ups at Bonnaroo, but Deafheaven is definitely not a band to miss. These rockers talk about the evolution of the music scene and much more in this interview at Bonnaroo.
Shaed are a band from the DC area making waves on mainstream radio with their hit “Trampoline.” In this interview from the Firefly Festival the band talks about their love for the capital city as well as all the streaming platforms listeners use to enjoy music.

Philly indie rockers twentythreenineteen just released their debut full-length on Know Hope Records. It’d be easy to call XXIIIXIX an emo album, but that’d sell the band short. They pull from pop, electronic, and even ambient as much as they do emo and emo-adjacent music, and it makes for one of the genre’s most creative and refreshing albums in a long time. I recently had the pleasure of speaking to bandleader Sean McCall about the writing of the record, which is currently available for streaming and purchase.
This is my eight time interviewing Juliet. In the nine years I’ve been speaking with her, I watched her go from leading Automatic Loveletter to performing on NBC’s “The Voice” to her recently signing to Sumerian Records. Over the years Simms has always been as candid as she has been persistent in her work ethic.
Tanya Batt is many things. First off, she’s a proud Gecko mum. Then, she’s a musician, an actress, she nannies, and she even works in a theatre. You wouldn’t know it by glancing at our table in the busy Melbourne café, The Hub, but Tanya Batt – who performs under the musical moniker BATTS – played a show in a packed Hamer Hall just a week earlier. Hamer Hall is one of Melbourne’s most beautiful venues, a room Tanya never thought she’d play in. Following a string of concerts as a special guest for Sharon Van Etten (“Sharon is the best. She watched my sets from the side of the stage”), Friday night saw Batt end her album launch shows with a special hometown performance.
Earlier this month, I was able to catch up with Hannah Joy (singer/guitarist) of the indie rock band, Middle Kids before they played a sold out show at the legendary 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. During our conversation, Hannah shared the band’s approach to creating a memorable set of songs for their live shows, the process that goes into writing their music, as well updates on the progress of their second full-length album. Middle Kids recently released New Songs For Old Problems on Domino Records, and the EP is available for purchase wherever music is sold.
