While trying to find a quiet corner, The Veils frontman Finn Andrews and me got lost in backstage area of the newly renovated Fortune Sound Lounge. He rolled a cigarette as we chatted about his band’s latest record, Total Depravity. Chance encounters while hanging out in LA ended up with Finn working on the record with rapper and hip hop producer El-P (from Run the Jewels) and film director legend David Lynch. (Finn will be appearing in the 2017 Twin Peaks revival.)
What was it like to have rapper El-P produce an indie rock band? How does Finn keep his discipline as a song writer? Why do the band publish the song lyrics on the Veils website? Why did Finn want me to play his song “Nux Vomica”? How did the band navigate tough times? What sweet tradition does he have with his rocker dad? Which song on Total Depravity did the band save from the recycling bin? What was it like working with David Lynch? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Tracks played on the show…
1) The Veils, Total Depravity (2016) “Axolotl”
2) Run the Jewels, Run the Jewels 3 (2016) “Talk to Me”

There’s also a radio edit–if you need all your hang sessions to last under 30 minutes.
Pete Lawrie aka Until The Ribbon Breaks from the UK has released a great batch of work in the past 3 months, starting with his remixes for Of Monsters & Men, Tegan & Sara & Laura Mvula which are all great stand out tracks on their own. The single for his forthcoming LP “Pressure” is a beautiful song that really shows off his style, check out the music video below which shows footage from David Lynch’s Lost Highway.
Recently he’s been featured in BURNS track “No One Else” as well as getting a remix from him for “Pressure” which includes Mr MFN eXquire. Today Ta-ku brought to my attention that he had done a remix for “Pressure” as well, Regan shows us once again why he’s one of the top producer out now a days… check that out HERE. Keep an eye out for this cat on his Facebook, Twitter and Soundcloud because this forthcoming LP will be a real treat.

The Raveonettes make beautiful music, indelibly marked by darkness. They would probably be a much bigger band, if they “sold out” and wrote bubblegum lyrics to match their haunting melodies. I like to think of them as a long lost soundtrack to a David Lynch project.
This is my chat with Sune Rose Wagner (the guy in the band). I don’t know if the Danes are known for being succinct and frank, but Sune certainly is both.
The Raveonettes “Last Dance” A beautiful song about a relationship with a drug addict. See what I mean about an undeniable edge?
The Raveonettes “My Boyfriend’s Back” (The Angels cover) This cover was done for a video game, but Sune and Sharin Foo would much rather make their own stuff.

David Lynch x Au Revoir Simone
Sparklehorse’s Mark Linkous and Danger Mouse of Gnarls Barkley fame have co-labbed on a crazy lil album called, Dark Night of The Soul. The album was to be sold with a coffee table book of similarly dark David Lynch photographs (who’s singing talents are also featured in two of the songs).
Somewhere along the line, EMI who was behind the project, decided to pull the plug on it.
The production team decided to pull a little stunt and the book has ended up for sale through, Dnots.com and includes a blank cd-r in place of the album with the message ‘For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will,’. *Which I think is a hint that you should download it? The book has subsequently sold out.
Apparently this all has something to do with an ongoing dispute between Danger Mouse and EMI which dates back to DM’s Beatles/Jay-Z mash up, the Grey Album which contained uncleared use of the Beatles catalog which EMI owns. The album was responsible for launching Danger Mouse from bedroom producer to superstar, overnight.
The album includes an all star cast of contributors, everyone from Nina Persson of the Cranberries, Iggy Pop, Wayne Coyne, of the Flaming Lips, Black Francis of the Pixies, James Mercer of the Shins (I can go on, but I won’t).
The album has **somehow** managed to survive and make it out to the good ole world wide web.
The stand out track to me, is this here little ditty by Julian Casablancas of the Strokes. While there are some misses on the album it is definitely worth a listen. I give it a 7 winnies out of 10 rating. They are streaming it over at Dnots.com.
