Ao dar play no novo EP do trio de Ontario, Canadá, Basement Revolver, uma atmosfera introspectiva vai tomando conta da mente, aquela sensação de que é necessário fugir da loucura do cotidiano e apenas contemplar a nós mesmo fica explicito.
O Basement Revolver segue a linha sonora do Thrushes, eterno predileto da casa, por consequência, as conexões com Galaxie 500, Mazzy Star, Cowboys Junkies torna-se evidente.
"Agatha" o EP é um medicamente necessário que o Basement Revolver nos oferta sem contra indicações, tendo dito, faça a sua lição de casa e medique-se.
***** Interview wit Basement Revolver *****
Basement Revolver started when I was in my final year of my undergrad, and the folk band that Nimal and I were in had stopped playing music, and I needed to keep creating. We started writing, got Brandon to join, and started playing around town. Two years later, here we are!
Q: Who are your influences?
Our influences majorly come from the music that we grew up with, but personally mine have changed. From MXPX and mewithoutyou to Anais Mitchell or Frankie Cosmos - anything goes!
Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
I can only speak for myself and this is so hard. Not in order at all!
Brother, Sister - Mewithoutyou
Young Man in America - Anais Mitchell
Violent - We are the City
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye
Church of the Good Thief - Right Away, Great Captain
Q. How do you feel playing live?
Usually I love it so much. Sometimes, I get really nervous and down on myself. Depends on my headspace going into it, and I am trying to get better at having a clear head :)
Q. How do you describe Basement Revolver sounds?
I have a really hard time with trying to listen to our music objectively, but I can say that it sounds exactly how I hoped it would?
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We usually go into the studio and record the drums and bass live off the floor. Then I go in and work on a bunch of guitar sounds, mostly our producers Adam Bentley and Jordan Mitchell are wizards at this. Then, we usually hit synth sounds, and finally vocals. It's the process that jives best with us.
Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Ratboys! Just discovered them on Audiotree and I am a huge fan.
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I think it would be fun to do an odd throwback to joy division or something!
Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are about to head out on tour, and we are working on our first full length album! Future tours are also in the works!
Q: Any parting words?
Thanks for taking the time to do this with us. GOODNIGHT PUSLINCH!
