Artist Interviews Air Credits

Local group Air Credits (aka Hood Internet & ShowYouSuck) recently stopped by the CHIRP studios to sit down with Features Director Amelia Hruby. They discussed the post-apocalyptic premise for their first album Broadcasted and how it feels to be making overtly political music in the current climate. (Hint: awesome.)

You can catch Air Credits live in Chicago on February 19th at the Empty Bottle for a Red Bull Sound Select show with Dan Deacon and Marijuana Deathsquad.

Artist Interviews Matchess

"So much of our lives are rationalized and routinized, and everything seems kind of known or knowable. So anything that feels like it's not quite knowable is what I like to do creatively. ... When there's no explanation for something, that's where I like to let my mind and my music stay."

Last fall, Whitney Johnson came to the CHIRP studios to talk with Amelia Hruby about Johnson's solo electronic project, Matchess. They discuss how she builds the multi-layered structures of her songs, the inspiration she draws from industrial field recordings, and what magic happens when you listen to repetitive sounds over and over again.
