Wild Beasts Smother Under The Influence

Hopefully by now you’ve heard Smother, the third album from Wild Beasts. As with all their records, it feels like it comes out of nowhere. And as always, I have trouble finding reference points to give people when recommending them (Antony? Talking Heads?). That’s why I asked the band to talk about some of the… More »

Wilco (The Record Label)

Wilco ran their own festival last year, have their own coffee blend, and gave their blessing to sandwiches named after them. Their own record label seems like the next logical step, or rather, a step you expected from them a few albums back.
