EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW(S): THE HAWK IN PARIS

Interviews by Michael McCarthy I am a music junkie. I always want more and I can never have enough. One of my favorite places to find new music is Noisetrade, a wonderful website where thousands of artists give away their music in hopes of building a following. You’re free to tip them, and...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: FEFFE OF BOMBUS TALKS ALL THINGS METAL

I recently gave a rave #albumoftheday review to The Poet and the Parrot by Bombus, a mind-blowingly good, red hot metal band hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden.  Unlike most Swedish metal bands, Bombus are not a death metal band, sounding more like a cross between Metallica’s first few records and Motorhead at their prime. ...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: UGLY BUNNY: ELECTROPOP OF THE SWEETEST KIND

You may recall my review of Ugly Bunny’s first two singles, “Compromise & Sacrifice” and “Tokyo,” from earlier this month. If not, well, let’s just say that this hot new duo’s sugary electropop confections are sweeter than any treats you’ll ever receive from the Easter Bunny. That said, I can promise you that...

TURKISH DELIGHT: AN INTERVIEW WITH EMINE SARI

We recently unveiled the lyric video for Turkish singer/songwriter Emine Sari’s “Who Are You.”  We were quite impressed with her unique blend of pop, jazz and swing.  And her jazzy pop rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep” was easily one of the most original covers we’d ever heard.  Naturally, we were curious about this fascinating...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: VIRGINIA LABUAT: CLASSY & CLASSIC

Back in April I reviewed Spanish singer/songwriter Virginia Labuat’s English-language debut, Night & Day, and the review couldn’t have been more positive. Sometimes when I read reviews I’ve written some months later, I’ll find myself thinking that I poured it on a bit too thickly, that I perhaps gave too much praise, thus...

*EXCLUSIVE* INTERVIEW: SPC ECO’S DEAN GARCIA

I recently reviewed SPC ECO’s exquisite new single, “Delusional Waste,” and found my head filled with questions while writing it. (“Delusional Waste” review: http://www.loveispop.com/reviews/single-spotlight-spc-eco-delusional-waste/) After all, SPC ECO’s producer/programmer/musician extraordinaire is none other than Dean Garcia, who was one half of the indie electro-pop/rock duo Curve, one of the ’90’s very best and...

SURROUNDED BY WILDFLOWERS: AN INTERVIEW WITH TONY HARNELL

interview by Michael McCarthy If you grew up in the ‘80’s or early ‘90’s then you probably fancied heavy metal and you likely had at least a hundred cassette tapes to prove it. Your collection was surely populated by bands like Poison, Twisted Sister and Motley Crue. But there was probably one tape...

INTERVIEW: VALERIE RENAY OF NOBLESSE OBLIGE

By now you’ve probably read my entirely positive review of Noblesse Oblige’s amazing, new, genre-bending album Affair of the Heart. (If you haven’t read it, here it is: http://www.loveispop.com/reviews/review-noblesse-oblige-affair-of-the-heart/) I was so intrigued by the album that I was naturally curious about the duo who made it. Fortunately, I was lucky enough that...
