At this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival, CHIRP Features interviewer Jessi D met up with frontman Damon McMahon to dig into the revelatory emotional warfare that is Amen Dunes. They talk about Freedom, making music, and a recent statement Damon made to the press about a previous misinformed “call-out” in 2014.
Features interviewer Jessi D caught up with Jay Som on a very windy first day of Pitchfork Music Festival to chat about music as a creative outlet, her much anticipated release Anak Ko, how that name came about, and how touring with other Asian-American female musicians changed her life.
Assistant Features Director Ari Mejia spoke with Amber Mark at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival. They dove into her identity as an artist and how place informs music, plus Amber gave a hot take on her recent global tour.
CHIRP interviewer Jessi D chats with Julia Jacklin in advance of her sold out concert at Schubas. They discuss how to preserve tiny moments in time within songs, feeling disconnected from yourself, finding balance on tour, and much more.
