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.

"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.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
