« What's going on Saturday? (Paint It Black, Cibo Matto, Frankie Cosmos, Throwing Muses, Bob Mould, Jungle, Ejecta & more) | Japanese band Buffalo Daughter on tour, NYC shows this weekend (tonight w/ Cibo Matto), play SXSW »
Little Dragon's next album, entitled Nabuma Rubberband, is due in May. This coming week, like they did recently on Letterman (video below), they'll preview some of it down in Austin at SXSW where one of their shows is the Thursday BrooklynVegan free day party. Meanwhile, we cornered bassist Freddy & drummer Erik & asked them 5 QUESTIONS:
1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country and why?
LD: Our favorite venue to play could be the Henry Miller library in Big Sur. Open small outdoor stage surrounded by the giant redwoods trees, what more to say??
more to say below...
2) Tell us about the worst show you've ever played?
Long time ago we played in a huge church in a small German town. Not the ideal acoustics for our music to say the least. There was a 2h minimum show so we decided to start with a freeform jam and build it up. It was pretty painful but hilarious.
3) What are some albums that you've been spinning in the van lately?
This girl from Houston called Beoncee or something.
Lukas Nystrand von Unge EP
4) What would your metal band name be?
Dark mist. Album would be called foggy future.
5) What are you up to for the rest of the year post-SXSW
Playing shows & make some videos. Also trying to come up with wittier answers for future interviews.
