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.

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.
