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.

Artist Interviews Cains & Abels

Chicago rock group Cains & Abels released their second full-length album My Life Is Easy on Whistler Records in March 2012. Life Is Easy represents an honest, beautifully crafted tale of nature-inspired lyrics rooted in stories of struggle.

Katie Owens sat down with David Sampson & Josh Ippel over beer, sans koozies, in a River North loft to delve into the meaning of C/A’s stories illustrated on their latest album, discuss hearing silence, and discover what makes their lives easy.
