A little talk about love. Interview with Father John Misty

For many years, Joshua Tilman writes songs: for a while he was a drummer of Fleet Foxes, and after that he recorded 2 albums already as Father John Misty.

Due to the fact that the interview was taken on the eve of Valentine’s Day, Stefan Greiner devoted the column “A Little Talk About …” to the topic of love. This is no coincidence: Tilman’s album “I Love You, Honeybear” is filled with love, oysters, sex and massacres.

It’s always hard for me to talk about love without cynicism, unless it’s something intimate that I share with the person I love.

Hello my little Mercury …

I have wanted to write to you for so long … I searched for words and clumsily built expressions, secretly hoping that my letter would someday be published on adme.ru and dozens of readers would write “This is so inspiring!”. But then I realized that I really didn’t want this at all. I wanted you to forget what britishwave.ru, adme.ru and just “www” in any form are.

Yes, and night hangs in YouTube – this is also okay, even despite the fact that you do not go to school, because you sleep off. Would YouTube be in my youth – I would do that too. By the way, the next time you surf there, be sure to see how Hendrix fires a guitar. The coolest video, Bellamy (well, the guy from Muse) after him took up the music, while Continue reading

We must try to distinguish good performers from bad performers. Interview with Selfieman

Selfieman is a new project of multi-instrumentalist Nikolai Stravinsky, a member of such groups as Cockroaches !, Missiles from Russia and Fairy Dragee.

Selfieman’s debut album, consisting of 8 tracks, was recorded in February-August 2014 at studios in Dusseldorf and Moscow, and was called “Transparent Things”. The uniqueness of the album lies in the fact that Nikolai is not only the author of the music of all the material, but also the performer of all musical and vocal parts.

The presentation of the album took place in Moscow and St. Petersburg in November 2014 with the participation of Evgeny Ryakhovsky and Sergey Kivin from the Animal Jazz group, as well as Alexey Continue reading
