In a Hole with Zeit - An Interview


Este é o TBTCI, novidade??!Não nenhuma, mas particularmente, gostaria de deixar claro que o formato e o modus operanti deste veículo permanecerá o mesmo, e você, sim você, idiota e retardado que fez o favor de comentar a respeito do conteúdo das entrevistas, e dizer que esta cansado, eu digo, meu caro, vá ler outra coisa, porque aqui nestas páginas quem manda sou eu, e quem sabe das coisas são as bandas, e você é mero coadjuvante, ou seja, foda-se você e sua opinião, porque aqui nada vai ser mudado.

E pra explicitar mais ainda isso tudo, vamos de Zeit, o bom e saudoso shoegazer elevado a potência máxima e eloquente como deve e precisa ser, pq aqui, a regra é celebrar-se a si mesmo, e o Zeit faz exatamente isso, uma celebracão de esporro sonoro, altíssimo, quem me derá ouvir Life is Just a Blur o ep dos caras ao vivo, deve certamente ser uma daquelas experiências eternas, exagero meu!?!?! Talvez, e daí!?!?!?!

Tremor, Silvery Lights, Sy e Beautiful Disaster mostram que o Zeit não veio ao mundo pra ser etereo, mas sim pra gritar através de microfonias e guitarras os seus medos, desejos e anseios, e é exatamente isso, que faz o Zeit estar acima.

Então, bom rezemos para novos episódios da vida em obra do Zeit, que por hora, ataca com palavras.


***** Interview with Zeit *****



Q. When did Zeit starts, tell us about the history...
Zeit took shape in early spring 2010. However we started making songs as early as 2008 -2009, it was first a modest collaboration between me (Erik Engblom) and Erik Jonsson; we got acquainted with each other while playing together in another band; later we both moved to Gothenburg where we met Björn Alm at the University of Gothenburg – the three of us started to make music.

Q: Who are your influences?
Personally, at the moment, I´m listening a lot to old Elliott Smith and Townes van Zandt stuff, but also to more contemporary stuff like Tamaryn and APTBS (a place to bury strangers). Wouldn’t call it influence though, rather inspiration.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Very hard, but I´ll give it a try

5. The Smiths – Queen is dead
4. Broder Daniel – Broder Daniel Forever (Swedish cult band, pretty unknown outside Scandinavia)
3. Jesus and Mary Chain – Psychocandy
2. Elliott Smith – Either/Or
1. The Cure – Disintegration

Q. How do you fell playing live?
I both love and hate playing live – it’s quite complex actually. I never liked attention, but at the same time I seem to desire it in some weird narcissistic way. I´m not shy, perhaps I can appreciate it more in time.

Q. How do you describe Zeits sound?
It´s basically pop music drenched in a lot of fuzz and reverb.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We´re not a band doing 30 songs for an album, we work very hard on certain ideas and then we try to capture the idea on tape. The new EP (life is just a blur) for example, sounds quite raw – people call it lo-fi and perhaps it is, but that´s just our sound; we wanted to capture the actual sound and nothing more. Many band tend to record songs in the studio - laying layer upon layer, but then when they play live the songs sounds nothing like the studio versions.


Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Tamaryn, A Place to Bury Strangers, Ice Age and Shannon and The Clams.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
Would be neat to do some Elliott Smith cover, perhaps something from Either/Or

Q: What´s the plans for future....
Release an album, and do some touring.

Q: Any parting words
every day once a day give yourself a present!
