Vamos fazer o seguinte, dê play no link do bandcamp na entrevista, feito isso, vamos iniciar.

Sim, é isso, essa garota que atende pelo nome de Morningface é literalmente ouvir se apaixonar imediatamente.

Os heróis dela? Anton Newcombe, Jason Pierce, Peter Kember, Richard Ashcroft, tá bom pra você, ou ainda precisa de mais alguma coisa?

Psicodelia em formas acústicas, algo como se o Galaxie 500 fizessem uma faz com o BJM.

The lo-fi EP é isso, simplesmente maravilhoso.

E ponto final. Ah o nome da garota que seduziu o TBTCI é Kate.

***** Interview with Morningface *****

Q. When did Morningface start? Tell us about the history…
Like the infamous Greybags, Morningface has always been here, I recorded an album on a 4-track and did a couple singles for Morningface, then I had a band called Carnation for a moment, and honestly I can’t remember why Morningface came about or what it meant but I just kept the name going, and kept working on crafting songs. Always.

Q: Who are your influences?
I attended the Noel Gallagher school of songwriting. Richard Ashcroft taught me music is Mantra, and Sonic Boom one chord best. Anton Newcombe inspired me to put it out there...Spiritualized, Spacemen 3, Sonic Boom, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Verve

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
I threw away all my music, I needed the disk space for recording and I also realized I never needed to hear another Stones song, that I could make my own music instead.. I believe you need to shake up your brain and change the vibration, grow new neural pathways.. that being said I never get bored of listening to BJM so:

Methodrone- The Brian Jonestown Massacre
And you can only hear this on Soundcloud but he’s worth it: Blue Endless Abyss https://soundcloud.com/blueendlessabyss

We did a song together called “Love Is All You Bleed” and it’s my favorite.


Q. How do you feel playing live?
I’m into channeling so I don’t know, I’ll have to get back to you in a year when I play more

 Q. How do you describe Morningface sounds?
space love? sonic love? I’m trying to keep in the light and shine it through my sound

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I do it myself, recording is amazing, I’m interested in psychoacoustics: phantom voices, binaural beats, etc. I try to replicate songs I love like Spiritualized's “Shine A Light”, Spectrum’s “I Know They Say”, to figure out their techniques and how they did it which is quite a challenge considering I’m not analog, I’m using Garageband. I love sound, I am in love with recording and learning. I have so many questions. I want to know.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
JENNIFER (London) has an new album coming out that’s amazing
Gorgeous Bully
Blue Endless Abyss
Dead Rabbits
The Underground Youth
The Durty Wurks

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
The Warlocks wall of sound!! I’m working on a cover of “A Song for Nico” with Severed Feathers (Canada)

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Right now I’m recording a full Morningface album which will be out May 2016, then I’ll play some shows, and find more people to make music with.

I’m planning on putting my collaborations I’ve done with Blue Endless Abyss, GreenCircles, Mellow Lizard, She Is Weird City and Jesse E. James out in some form quite soon. I’ve done backing vox on the forth-coming Happy-Sadness EP.

One day I’d like to have a label, SONIC LOVE RECORDS and turn Abbey Road into a music commune to record all the good bands.

I’m not attached to outcomes though. I am into just being my most authentic self now.

Q: Any parting words?
Consider your relationship with FEAR, then destroy it.

It’s cool that this blog exists and that you’re shining through.
