Magnified with Transporting Planets - An Interview

Da Califórnia vem o trio Transporting Planets, que em seu debute homônimo faz conexões com o Autolux e o Nothing.

Aquele shoegazer estridente, mais lento, melancólico e cheio de ruídos, sempre flertando com experimentalismos noise.

Um grande álbum que deve ser saboreado em alto e bom som.

***** Interview with Transporting Planets *****

Q. When did Transporting Planets start? Tell us about the history...
A. Eric had a bunch of his own shoegazey songs all recorded (the first EP) and when he got asked to play a show he brought Omar and Gavin along to play bass and drums.

Q: Who are your influences?
A. Autolux, My Bloody Valentine, Deerhunter, Sonic Youth, Lilys, Ride, Failure, Maids of Gravity... the list goes on and on!

Q. Make a list of your 5 albums of all time…
A. Magical Mystery Tour, Future Perfect, In Rainbows, Magnified, Loveless

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. Kinda nervous at first, but that quickly melts away after the first few notes

Q. How do you describe Transporting Planet's sound?
A. Lively shoegaze.

Q: What is your recording process like?
A. Eric actually plays a lot the instruments, and writes most of the songs. We're mostly his live band, but sometimes we write songs or become studio hands. We're all on the album somewhere just not in the same spots we play live.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A. Our friends in the bands The Human Machine and Hollow Ran and some bigger name guys like Tame Impala and Mac Demarco.

Q: Are there any songs that you guys cover or would like to cover?
A. We cover "Plantlife" by Autolux sometimes... I still wanna cover a Swirlies song one day but we'd have to figure it out.

Q: What are your plans for the future...
A. Well, we just put out our first full lenght debut LP, we got one song coming out on a local compilation of artists, and plan to compile songs for a b-side collection EP!

Q: Any parting words?
A. The fact that you're from Brazil and you found us and we can communicate is awesome. Thank you for having us.
