I woke up Autograf‘s Mikul and Louis from a nap when I met then at the hotel. In fact they asked for another quick 15 minutes of sleep before we chatted.
Chicago indie dance band Autograf is three guys: Mikul Wing, Louis Kha and Jake Carpenter. Autograf started as an art collective modeled after Andy Warhol‘s legendary New York Factory scene. While working on art installations, Autograf made a few bootleg remixes (including 50 Cent, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations) to fuel parties at their Future Factory space. These remixes became incredibly popular and soon offical remixes followed which eventually led to Autograf releasing original material.
Louis and Mikul were still groggy and disoriented when I woke them up the second time, but we had a great chat. How did an art collective become a dance act? What does the band mean when they tell each other to “bask like a lizard?” We start with the most important question: If Autograf is three guys, and Louis and Mikul get the two beds in the Autograf hotel room, where does the third man sleep? Listen to our chat.

LA-based Goldroom (AKA Josh Legg) is releasing his debut full-length album “West of the West” on September 23rd via Downtown Records. Today he released his second single, following “Silhouette”, titled “Lying To You”.
“I’ve wanted to center Goldroom around honest songwriting, and in late 2015 things poured out in a way they just hadn’t before, classic American songwriting is something I’ve tried hard to honor and push forward. Although I make electronic-based music, I think of this as Americana at its emotional core. I was aching to write something more simple and earnest, devoid of cynicism.” The album’s title is inspired by Teddy Roosevelt, who referred to California as “West of the West” during his presidency. “It’s always resonated with me because it feels like a destination past the Wild West — an oasis where anything is possible, to me, West of the West is also the Pacific Ocean, where so much of my life and inspiration lies.”
-Josh Legg (Goldroom)
