Interview: Lach

lach copy

At the beginning of this month we were able to talk to Lach – the man Time Out London has called “New York’s living legend.” He’s the founder of the Antifolk movement and a mentor to Beck, Regina Spektor, Laura Marling and more. Besides being a fantastic musician and writer, Lach is constantly producing paintings, photos, and cartoons as a part of his art.

We talked about the early days in New York, his move to the UK, Antifolk, the future of the music business, and transcendent enlightenment.

I’m not racist

“We are all humans until race disconnects us, religion separates us, politics divides us, and wealth classifies us.”

The new video for Joyner Lucas’ new track “I’m Not Racist” is very interesting. Directed by both Ben Proulx and Joyner Lucas, the video opens on a plain room with a fat white guy sitting across from a black guy. It is hard to watch at first. “What’s going to happen next?” you think. “Are there really people like this in the world?” you think. I’ll let you find out for yourself.

New single from Kraak & Smaak: “I’ll Be Loving You”

KraakandSmaak

“I’ll Be Loving You” is the funky new single from Dutch indie dance trio Kraak & Smaak. As the first single to be taken from their forthcoming sixth studio album, the long-serving Dutch act has teamed up with familiar vocal collaborator IVAR for a fresh slice of disco-infused Summer-pop with a serious injection of soul.
