What band did you discover in 2012 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
The exotica sounds of Arthur Lyman and Martin Denny. Paired with a Mai tai and you have pure escapism.
How will you remember 2012? (In terms of music)
Nothing too memorable. Rock and Roll needs another savior. The Stone Roses are back.
What can we look forward to from you in 2013?
Son of Man is about to wrap up a recording session so more music on that front. Hopefully a couple of releases.
What records are you looking forward to most in 2013?
Another Noel Gallagher record.
Fundraising sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have made a strong impact on the ability of artists to release music. Do you think this approach is a trend, or will it continue to shape how artists produce their material?
Not a big fan of this approach. Who knows if it will stick around or not. I will never ask fans for their money in order for me to record or whatever. I'm getting kind of sick of people starting up online funds and asking people to donate to trivial shit.
