Music: Pass The Mic: Artists and labels on 2019

The Locust / INUS / Holy Mokar (Bobby Bray)

1. What are your top five albums that were released in 2019? (In order 1-5)

  1. Battles - Juice B Crypts
  2. Secret Chiefs 3 - The Book of Beri’ah Vol 10—Malkhut
  3. Deaf Club - Contemporary Sickness
  4. Koenjihyakkei - Angherr Shisspa (Revisited)
  5. Thom Yorke - Anima
  6. The Sound That Ends Creation - Music Designed to Give You Ideas… Incase You Should Run Out of Ideas

2. What band did you discover in 2019 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?

A buddy named Jesse Kranzler moved out of San Diego to New York and has a great band called Marateck that released an album called Time is Over a couple of years ago. It slipped by me at first but I was stoked to finally hear it! Hopefully my band INUS will play some shows with them on the West Coast next year.

3. How will you remember 2019? (In terms of music)

2019 was a non-stop year of focused music-work for many people.

4. What can we look forward to from you in 2020?

Working on new albums for The Locust and The Institute For Navigating The Universal Self (INUS). Both bands will be playing shows too, I’m sure. Also, I think I might release some of my solo stuff under the name Henk.

5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2020?

Looking forward to being surprised by something off my radar.

6. What is your favorite way to pass time while on tour? Any apps, podcasts, etc you're into?

A good book on tour is the usual plan. In terms of podcasts, Intercepted and Democracy Now! are my favorites when it comes to world news. Radiolab and On the Media are a couple of my other favs.
