A few weeks ago I mentioned a band called Colossal Gospel. I was really impressed with their debut album ‘Circles’ which you can listen to on Bandcamp. Chris from the band was very kind and agreed to fill in a Musical Profile for me, so have a read and a listen too!
My Favorite band/artist: Yikes! Its so hard to pick a favorite! I guess I would have to pick Joanna Newsom because I love all of her albums!
My Favorite album: Pet Sounds
My Favorite song: “Ashes” – Rufus Wainwright
My Favorite gig: I saw this band mewithoutYou when I was like 15 or 16 in a mechanic’s car garage. During a vocal break, the singer walked up these stairs and when his part came he theatrically strolled down the stairs yelling his lines. It was awesome and captivating.
My Favorite lyric: “and I could say ooooo ooooo ooooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo, as if everbody knows what I’m talking about” – Paul Simon
My Favorite new band/artist: The Weeknd
My Dream festival line-up: The Beach Boys (or Brian Wilson), Animal Collective, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Nirvana, The Clash, The Flaming Lips, Paul Simon, Lauryn Hill, Feist, Boys II Men, Neil Young, and Arcade Fire. All for free! Who’s with me? I wish this could happen for real! Oops, I’ve done made myself excited.
My Right now I love: My piano. I make sure to tell it how much I love it every day!
