Last Interview of 2012...with E4RTH

I've been posting a lot of stuff about the Brooklyn band E4RTH lately. Why? Well, they are interesting. And they are pretty good. And I don't need any other reasons.

Thus, I decided to do the logical next step: to interview them. The last Useless Critic Interview of 2012. May 2013 be filled with many more!


There is also something to be said for both honesty and brevity. Ahem. 


UC: How did you celebrate the End of the World?

E: Mostly checking our phones to see what people thought of the new track.

UC: How's the reception been for your R.E.M cover?

E: Pretty good! A lot of people talking about it and a few who seem genuinely offended. (it happens. as long as it wasn't Michael Stipe...)

UC: What do you have going on at the moment? What are your newest projects?

E: This week we're doing a video for HEX4GONAL, a mixtape called "The Game Of Life," a new track called "Ashey Feet" featuring Lurrell Low, and 2 x 2 Chainz bootlegs.  Also started a book.

UC: What's your backstory?

E: E4RTH is something that has existed for a really long time probably about 6000 years... we aren't exactly sure.  The more you know E4RTH the more you'll be able to see why.  There were a lot of signs in the universe that pointed to this specific activity in this moment and here we are.  

:O

UC: What do you hope 2013 brings for E4RTH?

E: The opportunity to make more, see more, do more, be more.  Okay?



Okay, I think. Check out their site for more information and I'm sure I'll post more in the future.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
