Interviews

  1. Interview: Salt Cathedral

    Last month, the ever-shifting and always-working Salt Cathedral put out their latest EP, OOM VELT, a collection of songs that at once restricts their palate and broadens their sound. To celebrate the release, I chatted with founding member Nicolas Losada about his upbringing in Colombia, mixtapes and his experiences in Japan. This is an edited Continue…

    Salt Cathedral chat with TK contributor Andrew Brandt about their excellent new EP, their love of ramen, and the difference between touring in the United States versus Japan.

  2. An Interview With Zella Day

    Zella Day is an up-and-coming pop artist based out of L.A. who’s being dubbed (somewhat misleadingly) as the “happier version of Lana Del Rey.” While that’s an impressive comparison for a 19 year old, Zella’s songs of summers and ex-lovers are good enough to stand on their on; and with an album and future tours Continue…

  3. 5 Questions With… Breathe Owl Breathe

    I caught up with Micah, Andrea and Trevor from Ann Arbor, Michigan’s Breathe Owl Breathe before their set at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill. Their live show is upbeat and whimsical. In fact, I’d venture as far as to say I’d never seen a band appear to have so much fun on stage (The Continue…

  4. 5 Questions With… Molly Hamilton of Widowspeak

    (pic by dale w. eisinger) I’ve been fawning over the soothing, lavender-infused croon of Brooklyn-based Widowspeak‘s front-woman Molly Hamilton since the first time I stumbled upon the band’s “Gun Shy” and “Harsh Realm” singles.  And whether it is their simmering and sweet interpretation of Chris Issac’s “Wicked Game” or the psychedelic twists of their newly Continue…

  5. 5 Questions With… Mike Krieger, Co-Founder of Instagram

    We’re continuing the ’5 Questions With’ series and today we’re talking with Mike Krieger, the co-founder of the photo-sharing app Instagram.  Mike is a fan of great independent music and definitely in-the-know when it comes to up and coming artists – which seems fitting since most of those same artists are constantly posting pictures taken Continue…

  6. Interview: Hayley of Super Wild Horses

    When we first started doing our Musical Pairings the connection between food and music seemed obvious enough to us.  After all, in my opinion, there is a lot of rock n’ roll packed into most of my favorite foods.  In food, as in music, an individual’s style is deeply part of what they produce.  Some Continue…

  7. Interview: Chris Chu of The Morning Benders

    Listening to a record by The Morning Benders is kinda like sitting down at the dinner table to enjoy a good home-cooked meal.  Their latest record, Big Echo, for example, is warming, comforting, engaging and completely satisfying – thereby stirring the same emotions brought on by a good meal. So it is no surprise that Continue…

  8. Interview: Thao & Mirah

    It’s been pretty well documented that Kasey and I are pretty big fans of both Thao and Mirah. Their albums get a lot of play when we are at work in our kitchen and during our home-cooked meals.  So, as you might imagine, we were very excited when they agreed to sit down with us Continue…

  9. Turntable Kitchen’s Top ‘Side One, Track Ones’ Released Since 2000

    A first impression is a lasting impression.  At least that is the conventional wisdom.  And I’d argue that whatever wisdom lay in that theory with regard to social interactions applies equally to a listener’s interaction with music.  If you have a negative reaction (i.e. boredom, indifference, or outright dislike) to the first song you hear Continue…

  10. City Limits Records

    I’m pretty proud of the music scene in my adopted home by the Bay.  Indeed, San Francisco has consistently maintained a seemingly endless pool of talented young musicians making some of the best, forward-thinking music of their time; we have great studios where bands can record their masterpieces; we have great venues for watching bands Continue…
