From Pussy Riot to X

Also this week:

Cover star Peaches told us that, “I wasn’t really trying to follow any sort of trend at that point. So I think the testament to its minimality really is its longevity. I’ve done like 30 shows, and I play the whole album, and I’m never like, ‘Oh this song is dated.’ It is a little more challenging, when I was thinking about live shows, what to do with something like ‘Felix Partz,’ which is a completely instrumental song. But it really worked out. Something like ‘Suck and Let Go,’ I just do it more inprovisational with my machine. Because you know it was all written on this Roland MC 505 Groovebox. So it’s really nice to have that machine back also, to give it that improvisational quality. It doesn’t have to be exactly the same every time.”

In “Not Another DJ,” Aidan Carroll said, “[I] had a very clear light bulb moment during that process that told me I should start learning how to be a producer. Also, given that I’ve always loved working in various genres and playing different instruments, it just made sense to have a medium where I could fully express myself as a music creator–not to mention, a medium where collaboration is so important. I also love the idea that records and songs are ‘forever’.”
