Thinking of You with Photographic Memory - An Interview

Max Epstein é um verdadeiro emo de coração e alma, seu amor declarado pelo Blink 182 é explícito. Mas sua música pende muito mais para o dreampop lo fi do que para o pop punk engraçado de sua banda do coração.

Sob a alcunha de Photographic Memory, Max lança seus devaneios de um típico adolescente sonhador introspectivo da Califórnia. Depois de um EP e um single, o primeiro disco cheio veio ao mundo há exato um mês atrás. "Thinking of You" é um disco ensolarado e sutilmente melancólico como a alma de seu criador.

Nada de novo, salvo que o frescor de ouvir sonoramente as descobertas, os medos e outros sentimentos da virada da adolescência para a vida adulta ainda excita este que vos escreve, e o Photographic Memory faz exatamente isso.
***** Interview with Photographic Memory *****

Q. When did Photographic Memory start? Tell us about the history...
I started Photographic Memory in 2014. Just recording songs in my bedroom. I was super focused on learning how to engineer and produce. So i made so many songs over the last three years that are just sitting on a hardrive. I'll probably never share em. Even 'Thinking of you' wasn't originally going to be shared.

Q: Who are your influences?
The Simpsons. Blink 182. The Sopranos.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Too hard to chose.. Here's the first that come to mind.
Blink - self titled,
Bon Iver - 22 A million,
American football - self titled,
Title fight - shed,
slowdive - souvlaki.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I love playing music live. It's honestly my favorite thing in this world.

Q. How do you describe Photographic Memory sounds?
Lofi emo music. kinda dreamy.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I went through a tough breakup about 5 months ago. I just wrote and recorded a bunch of songs about that cuz thats all I could really do to pass the time and stay sane. It wasn't a very fun process to be honest. Except when friends would come by the studio and work on stuff with me. I live upstairs at the studio I work out of so its been really convenient.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
LA Qoolside, Regulate, Murderoid, Souvenirs, Hunny, Scott Ruth

Q: Which band would you love to make a cover version of?
Probably a Scott Ruth song. or maybe a get up kids song. Actually ya expect a get up kids cover next month.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Tour a bunch. See the world with my friends. Keep sharing music.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you for listening to these songs. Thanks for caring about underground music.

Hug the people you love. Let them know they are important.
