Artist Interviews Chandeliers

Chandeliers are an electro-krautrock band from the south side of Chicago known for treating their audiences to immersive audio/visual experiences. After their show at Saki, Chandeliers' Chris Kalis and Cameron Brand explained what it means to be a live synth-rock band that doesn't just press buttons, ruminated about the support system of Chicago's art scene, and talked about the benefits of working from home.

Artist Interviews Why?

Yoni Wolf is the frontman of Anticon's Why?. CHIRP's Dylan Peterson caught up with Yoni backstage at Lincoln Hall where the controversial folk rapper shrugged off ouroboros by comparing his work to Picasso, then graciously offered up a pointed response to the notoriously negative review his 2012 album, Mumps Etc., received from the Internet's most notorious indie rock site.

Artist Interviews Scott Lucas

Scott Lucas, lead singer of Chicago staple Local H and Scott Lucas and the Married Men, talks to CHIRP about the presidential election, his efforts to get people to vote, and the latest Local H album, "Hallelujah... I'm a Bum," an album that focused heavily on Chicago politics and the state of the nation. The album was released in time for the 2012 election, but Lucas thinks its message reaches far beyond. Also, find out what drinking game Lucas played on Election Night to get him through news coverage.

Artist Interviews Star Slinger

A  rising remixer and DJ from the UK, Star Slinger is a postmodern producer who has an ear for party music. CHIRP's Dylan Peterson spent some time with Star Slinger after the great Lollapalooza storm of 2012 to discuss the key differences between an electronic artist's live set versus a DJ set, the thrills of hanging out with Chief Keef and Skrillex, and the joys of getting wretched in Chicago. Star Slinger's debut album is due in 2013.
