Pitchfork Music Festival 2013

My zigzagging enthusiasm became my downfall…


Xander Harris

“The average person does not give a shit about what you made music with. They want to dance.”


Prince Rama

“We need gushes of blood, we need zombies on motorcycles, 12 Abercrombie models, muscle men with glitter sweat.”


Andrew Bujalski (director of Computer Chess)

“It was a ridiculous thing to try and pull together in that amount of time, but I think probably if we had more time, we would have had more time to realize it was in vain.”


Favorite 15 Films of 2013 (So Far)

From florescent vomit to T&A set to Skrillex


Shannon And The Clams

“I like to keep it simple. Simple in the sense of not putting tons of work into forcing something to be polished.”


Favorite 30 Albums of 2013 (So Far)

From drifters and redeemers to maggots and wolves


Lantern

“It can be simple and still rock.”


John Dawson (Magnetic South)

“Magnetic South has never been a commercial recording studio that is open to serve the needs of the general public.”


Northside Festival 2013

Something like that…


Xavier Dolan (dir. "Laurence Anyways")

“These characters are inspired by who I am, and I am not a transexual lady. I am not a bourgeoise mother. I am not an old drag queen.”


Ashley Paul

“Someone said that it helped them, as a member of the audience, to close their eyes, because it felt so intimate — like they shouldn’t be watching me.”


Charles Bradley

“When I’m doing music onstage, I’m putting my heart and soul into it, and giving all I have to give. But when I’m finished with music, I just like to put up my own little aura where there’s peace and quiet.”


Caitlin Rose

“You have to immerse yourself into things to really get it. It’s like language. You got to go to Spain or something to learn Spanish in the realest sense.”


TEEN

“I’ve been guilty of trying to hide behind effects, but I don’t want to do that anymore. It feels boring.”


Sasquatch! 2013

“He put his finger up my butthole!”


John Dieterich (Deerhoof, Bad News From Houston)

“I love the rules, but I want the rules to create a situation in which the music that results breaks or re-frames some idea about what music is or was or is supposed to be.”


Sam Amidon

“I wanted to do an album where it would have radically contrasting sonic environments, but still feel like it’s all coming from one creative space.”


Bob Bellerue (Ende Tymes Festival)

“To me, noise is one of the most egalitarian art forms, because it is so inherently marginal.”


Breakbot

“Making these remixes had been like going to school for me. […] It was a good way to learn the software, to define the world I was making.”
