Aural States has a nice interview up with Small Sur, who play with Horse Feathers (Kill Rock Stars) this Wednesday night at the Metro Gallery in Baltimore. They also offer up a previously unreleased track, "Weeds." Truly excellent stuff.
AS: Who embodies what you would like your music to become, if there is any such person or artist?BK: More than anything, modern musicians I enjoy…Will Oldham has influenced it in the past few years. More recently Akron Family, and drones and repetitive structures. Just setting up a path for a song and not falling off it; it just repeats. Maybe Asa Osborne from Lungfish, some of his side projects like the Pupils, inspires some of that. I really enjoy how it’s meditative and repetitive, yet enough change so that it’s not boring. That’s the idea for our music: there’re not going to be crazy changes, but there will be enough change that it’s just on the other side of boring.
Much much more.
