Artist Interviews Cross Record

Emily Cross is known throughout Chicago's lo-fi art scene as Cross Record. CHIRP's Blake Burkhart talked with Cross about her growth as a singer and a musician, how a pre-teen diary turns into a career project, and the value of leaving Chicago for a while. Cross's haunting acoustic works are the latest to be captured by Coach House Sounds, which you can hear exclusively on CHIRP in early 2013.

Artist Interviews Mission of Burma

Though pioneers of post-punk, Mission of Burma are slow to admit their influential place in indie rock history. CHIRP DJ Blake Burkhart sat down with the band before their 2012 show at Lincoln Hall to discuss their journeys over the past three decades, staying angsty in chillwave times, and the freakiest surprise of their career. Mission of Burma released Unsound in 2012 on Fire Records.
