Citizens! is a new band on the French label, Kitsuné, comprised of five guys from London and produced by Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos. Embracing pop in all its forms and experimenting with creating a new sound, the result is infectious, with a bit of glam attitude and more than a little funk mixed into their indie pop sound. The band played some songs and sat down with Maia to talk about their video for “True Romance,” and their rules for recording.
The music of Miro Belle invites listeners into a dreamland of instrumental wonder.
Brooklyn-based electronic/psychedelic producer Erin Rioux (pronounced ree-yoo) is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who blends organic instrumentation with custom samples and beats. More than just a dance music machine, Rioux explores the realm of audio/visual pop experimentation, drawing inspiration from the Berlin nightlife scene and his own background growing up in Detroit.

What’s the sound of style? Well, it’s a lot more glam than one hand clapping. In fact, as we’ve discussed Sew & Tell before, there is a ton of crossover between fashion and music, designers and rockers. For today’s show, I got to talk with Susan Domelsmith, a Brooklyn jeweler who’s also part of the all-girl Brooklyn band Open Ocean. Susan’s jewelry line, Dirty Librarian Chains (best name ever?), is a beautifully tangled, bold array of pieces, each one made from repurposed vintage materials. From elegantly twisted chain necklaces, to simple, sculptural rings, these pieces are 100% rock ‘n roll, and it’s easy to see why the line has caught the attention of musicians like Debbie Harry and Vivian Girls. Susan’s own music is no less innovative – she contributes keyboards to two projects: the throw-back punk band Open Ocean, and the experimental electronic pop duo Time Reveals. On today’s show, Susan talks about the evolution of DLC, sourcing vintage materials, making music with fashion friends, and some of her favorite NYC libraries. Plus! An awesome playlist (what else would you expect?) featuring music from Open Ocean, Wild Nothing, Rubblebucket, Bill Fay, Bob Mould and more. So turn up the volume and settle in for some seriously stylish sound, with Sew & Tell on BTR!
Deaf dancers find their internal rhythm to beat the sound of silence.
Based in London, Ben Ash makes modern, maximalist R&B, all breakbeat drum samples and Technicolor synths. Equally warm are the human elements: reverb-laden guitars, live pianos, impassioned and screwed vocals. This union—between the robotic and human—is made possible by a pop sensibility that is universal. Check LBPT’s exclusive Q&A below. One. LBPT: How did you get into making tunes? TIP: I was influenced by my dad & mum who are musical and they brought me up jamming at home. LBPT: Saturn: The Slow Jams EP comes out July 16th. What’s the story you’re telling? TIP: Slow jams, love songs and R&B are what I was brought up on but I’m influenced by electronic music with a twist, futuristic sounding synths and warped bass lines, which ties in with the space, sci-fi theme. LBPT: ‘Paint It Red’ features Mikky Ekko all the way from Nashville. How did that collaboration happen? TIP: Just online. I heard his stuff, loved his voice and, when Mikky was in London, we got in the studio. We have only met once and recorded once so I’m looking forward to more one day. LBPT: A lot of musicians working today came up on 90s melodies and production. How does the decade’s music influence yours? TIP: Heavily. It was the era that I was starting to get into music at school, whether it was hip hop, Britpop, 90s R&B, grunge, garage. There was a lot of different genres back then compared to now, when everyone seems to like a bit of everything. LBPT: You’re signed to PMR Records, also home to Jessie Ware and Julio Bashmore. What’s the vibe like in the office? TIP: We are like a family. All good friends and I am a fan of everyone on the label. Genuinely love all the music at PMR. Exciting future. LBPT: To my ear, London has always had a sound even as it’s evolved over time. What about the city gives the music that texture? TIP: Its so diverse, so many cultures and that comes out through music more than anything. Whether it’s grime or punk, it feels like there’s a lot of pain and emotion in London music—like it couldn’t have been made anywhere else. LBPT: Top five slow jams of all time? TIP: Not top but first five that I love which come to my head right this second: Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares Otis Redding – I’ve Been Loving You Too Long R. Kelly – Sex Planet D’angelo – Brown Sugar BrownStone – If You Love Me via LBPT
