Ah, Future Islands. When I saw that this group of guys were slated to perform at FYF, I knew I HAD to get an interview. I’ve been a fan of Future Islands for quite some time, and their newest album, On The Water, was an album I had on repeat when friends and I would take drives to and around the West Side of Los Angeles. For those of you who don’t know, the West Side is all about beach vibes. I don’t know about you, but when I listen to Future Islands, I tend to get a slightly sunny, slightly beachy, and VERY current vibe from this trio. And Samuel Herring? His vocals are Read More
Father John Misty… how do you describe Father John Misty? This is the moniker of Josh Tillman, someone you might recognize as a past member of Fleet Foxes. His first album as Father John Misty was the product of a very… ahem… interesting road trip and a little help from some friends. His music is a little folk, a little rock, and a lot of heart.

And now comes the time where I get to share another artist from our unforgettable weekend at FYF!
I was incredibly excited to interview Kishi Bashi. I mean, how often is it that you get to chat with an artist thats toured with some HUGE musicians (of Montreal and Regina Spektor? Awesome) and has an AMAZING project all of his own? Needless to say, hanging out with Kaoru (who goes by K) Ishibashi of Kishi Bashi was definitely Read More
Welcome to our first FYF interview! Melody, Claire, and I had the pleasure of attending the INCREDIBLE FYF Festival in LA over the course of Labor Day Weekend. It was definitely a weekend I’ll never forget. Along with the fun people, interesting garments, and delicious drinks, we also had the opportunity to listen AND speak with some amazing artists.
Our first FYF artist feature is Simian Mobile Disco. This duo (made up of James Ford and Jas Shaw) out of London is well known for creating their incredible electronic tunes by use of analogue production methods. James Ford has also produced music for artists like Florence + The Machine, The Arctic Monkeys, and Beth Ditto. Pretty incredible Read More
