I caught up with Surfer Blood recently when they stopped by the Art in the Age store in Philly. We had a fun time discussing their music, time travel, our founding fathers and the brand’s spirits ROOT and SNAP.
Look at this, just in time for Halloween! Trippy and insanely fun Austin band The Octopus Project recently stopped by the Art in the Age store in Philly for an in-store performance and these rad videos are the result. They performed a track from their new album Hexadecagon and one of my favorites – “Music is Happiness”, from their 2005 album One Ten Hundred Thousand Million. Yvonne’s Theremin playing is other-worldly!
Philly’s Art in the Age recently caught up with the awesome LA band Best Coast and discussed their music, their teen idols, eggs, ROOT & SNAP and they even played a little game of F**K, MARRY, KILL using Seinfeld characters (Bethany’s favorite show).
While in town to promote their new album Hexadecagon at Kung Fu Necktie, Austin psych-pop band The Octopus Project will be stopping by the Art in the Age store this Thursday (10/7) at 2pm for a FREE in-store performance. Space is limited, so be sure to tweet to @artintheage or RSVP to their Facebook Event Page to make sure you reserve a spot! Check out one of their older (and awesome) videos below and download their newest below…
Islands recently stopped by Art in the Age (makers of organic liquors ROOT and SNAP) in Philly for an awesome 3-song acoustic set featuring the debut of two new songs: “Shotgun Vision” and “Lonely Love”. The former is one that I have personally been enjoying lately. Check out the videos:
Check out this interview I conducted for Art in the Age with Emil Nikolaisen, the frontman for Norwegian Shoegazers Serena-Maneesh. We discussed the band’s music, his home country of Norway and some of the artists he admires. A really good dude.
The new album is out now on 4AD. Highly recommended!
My trip to this year’s SXSW for Art in the Age was certainly a productive one. Between seeing live shows, eating BBQ, and getting to know the city, I managed to catch up with some really awesome bands and interview them for the AITA blog. Having our artist tees and ROOT Liquor with me didn’t hurt of course.
Above you can watch our interview, which turned out to be one of our best, with the highly entertaing G. Lucas Crane — noisemaker for the band Woods.
Watch interviews with The Golden Filter, Warpaint, Bachelorette, First Aid Kit, Talk Normal, Suckers and Real Estate after the jump…
During the next few days I’ll be in Austin witnessing what is sure to be a monumentally insane experience while I gather video interviews for Art in the Age. To a select few bands I interview, I’ll be giving away ROOT as well as some yet-to-be released AITA Tee designs. Totally excited!
Bands I’m looking forward to seeing include: Best Coast, Octopus Project, Moon Duo, Woods, Dum Dum Girls, Talk Normal, First Aid Kit, Banjo Or Freakout, Serena Maneesh and CFCF.
New Orleans band Generationals performed two songs at the Philly store — including this gem of a pop song. Snag a free mp3 of the studio version below.
