The AD Interview

Meg Duffy talks about their process, the liberating effect of working with an out queer artist like Perfume Genius and the way that the meanings of songs shift over time. “One of my favorite things about making records is that I learn about what the meaning is, later, after it’s out,” they confide.

Nick Salomon of the Bevis Frond first began banging out psychedelic guitar riffs as a schoolboy, starting out on his instrument at age six and immersing himself in an exploding U.K. and American rock movement. His latest album, Little Eden, is his 30th full-length, a roaring, raging triumphant double album that Salomon recorded almost entirely by himself during the COVID lockdown. We caught up with Salomon to discuss early musical fascinations, the pros and cons of recording alone, the state of psychedelic music, his substantial collection of singles, and the ways in which ageing—he’s nearly 70—has and has not had an impact on his music. “I just kind of take all the things that I like and stick them into the mincer and turn it on, and this Bevis Frond thing comes out. It’s an amalgam of all the things I like..”

A mellow conversation with John Andrews concerning his dreamy album Cookbook, which plays like an extension of his personality; the foot-tapping and head-swaying effect from his previous two albums is still there, but its more relaxed, more easy-going. A perfect soundtrack to the incoming fall weather.

Dieter Moebius’ restless creative spirit is at the heart of a new project, overseen by his widow Irene and Story, his friend and frequent collaborator. Titled Moebius Strips, the work is an audio installation that uses a wealth of loops, noises, and recordings from the late artist, as well as adaptations of his work created by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Eve Maret, Phew, Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh, and others—all fed into a multi-channel speaker system.

The Path of the Clouds is a bit of a departure, coming after Nadler relocated from Boston to Nashville. Hemmed in by quarantine in an unfamiliar city, Nadler rekindled a childhood fascination for the stories in Unsolved Mysteries. She was transfixed, in particular, by the tales about people who disappeared suddenly and were never heard from again—the wilderness explorers Bessie and Glen Hyde, the hijacker D.B. Cooper, the prisoners who made the only successful escape from Alcatraz. She began obsessively rewatching episodes about these stories, taking notes and working the details into a collection of songs.

On the heels of two outstanding studio records, singer-songwriter Azniv Korkejian (Bedouine) has crafted an enviable trajectory sharing a creative space akin to the folk sphere of Karen Dalton or Nick Drake. Ahead of the forthcoming lp (out October 22), Bedouine joins us to discuss the nuances of the project, including the ability to truly focus on the recording and musicianship for the first time. Or, in her own words, “songs for the sake of songs”.

For the past 25 years Jonny Trunk has done things his own way. Never content to simply repackage an album for the nth time, Trunk has always dug way deeper than most when it comes to the reissues and discoveries he releases on his Trunk Records imprint. Starting with the first-ever commercially released compilation of library music and the initial release of The Wicker Man’s glorious soundtrack, Trunk has continued to unassumingly and consistently influence certain subsections of modern music and the ever-churning reissue juggernaut.

Aquarium Drunkard recently sat down with Jonny discuss the label’s beginnings, his background in advertising, how he manages to stay inspired, the enigmatic Basil Kirchin, and more.
