Artist Interviews Battles

The members of Battles had endured an interesting year leading into their performance at July’s Pitchfork Music Festival. Handling the departure of vocalist Tyondai Braxton, planning an international tour and releasing the follow up to 2007’s acclaimed Mirrored were all still fresh memories. It couldn’t have been easy for or Ian Williams, Dave Konopka and John Stanier, yet they continue make it look that way.

Shortly following their exhilarant Pitchfork performance, the three members joined CHIRP Radio’s Blake Burkhart for a conversation about such topics as: venue vs. festival crowds, collaborating with Gary Numan, and the nature of over-stimulation from the internet.

Artist Interviews David Bazan Interview

Although David Bazan cut his teeth in Pedro the Lion, his recent work as a solo recording artist has enabled him to stretch his musical wings as well as find new ways to connect with his fans. He embarked on a living room tour in advance of Strange Negotiations. Bazan performed solo in small, intimate venues (often fans’ literal living rooms) and traveled alone, sleeping in his van.

CHIRP Radio’s DJ Mandrew interviewed Bazan after his Chicago show at an art gallery in Pilsen back in March. Bazan explained why, after over fifteen years in the music business, this type of DIY touring can be more engaging, successful, and fulfilling than taking a full band on the road to large rock venues.
