On May 18th, we posted a video from our friends at A Fistful of Vinyl of Defeater performing “Mothers Sons.” We mentioned that there would an accompanying interview coming out the following week and… here it is!
AFOV’s Alec Hodgman had the following to say about the interview:
“I sat with the members of Defeater and for an hour discussed their lyrics, the style of their production on their latest album compared to the previous ones, tour stories, the direction of the 6-album-long narrative they’ve been creating, interacting with fans about theories, worst dates, karaoke, Insane Clown Posse, guilty pleasures, and we spend like ten minutes talking about all the ways they’ve destroyed and lost cell phones on tour.”
Amazing. Fucking amazing. Watch that video below and keep checking back for more from A Fistful of Vinyl!
A Fistful of Vinyl is a DIY crew of volunteers run by KXLU veteran Alec Hodgman. They create live music sessions and interviews for YouTube in Los Angles with artists in and around the punk and folk music scenes. Their coverage helps to raise notoriety of small artists who make phenomenal music but don’t have a platform to share it, and celebrate the larger artists who share that mission of supporting those up-and-coming prodigies. A Fistful of Vinyl airs on KXLU 88.9 FM/Online Thursday nights at 9pm PT.
