Artist Interviews Jordan Reyes Interview

This week, Features Co-Director Mick R speaks with Chicago-based artist Jordan Reyes. They discus his new album, Everything Is Always and how an antipsychotic drug led to an overwhelming obsession with death, how zen, zaza meditation and drone metal helped, and his collaborators.  

Jordan Reyes will be celebrating Everything is Always at a release show held at the International Museum of Surgical Science on November 4, 2022.

"I talked to my general practitioner about everything that I was doing and we did a bunch of tests. He said, well, you're physically fine but there's something going on there. It's advice you wouldn't expect from a doctor, but he just told me to make music every day. So I was like, this guy's pretty smart and I know that music has helped me in the past, and I'm trying to wrangle all of these ideas, so I started working on Everything Is Always and what would be Everything Is Always." - Jordan Reyes

Artist Interviews Moritat Interview

This week, Features co-director Jessi D speaks with Venus Laurel and Konstantin Jace of Chicago art rock band Moritat. They discuss how cohabiting with drummer Corey McCafferty in a two-flat during the majority of their time as a band allowed them to experiment creatively, how their sound has become more refined in the decade-plus they've spent together, and the five year writing process for their most recent album, Vermilion

"It's just there's so much change at once in the world, through a pandemic and nervous politics that it's just - writing music and doing art in the middle of it, you absorb whatever's happening. I mean, you're dealing with the world, [...] it's a fight against death, really. [...] All the changes that you're dealing with it as an artist and a musician, it's all gonna bleed in because you're really synthesizing the world." - Konstantin Jace

Produced by Jessi D.
