Tracklist at the end of the interview.

Here is a new track by Emil & Friends that is an introspective and folky feel good tune. The guitar work at the end reminds me of John Frusciante.
“Fame and fortune don’t mean shit to me. 0o0o0 baby now…”

Emil & Friends – The Shrine

Asian Dan Interview: Emil & Friends

1.  Who is Emil & Friends?  How would you describe your music?

Emil & friends has been called everything from a band to a boyfriend/girlfriend duo to one guy with multiple personalities. At this point, and most likely until a tour, there will just be me doing what needs to be done. So I guess its more the multiple personalities… More specifically, I play the instruments, write, sing, record, produce, mix, design strange graphics and animations (All these done usually while wearing a costume of some sort). When I decided to release something I picked the Emil & Friends label because it sounded average, showed I wasn’t taking myself too seriously, and that I wanted to collaborate and start a band in the future, should it happen that way. I figured as long as I made the music good enough it would stay afloat. It could always change to a reference from some cult movie. That seems standard these days.

A description of the music? Its kind of like buffet style servings that vacillate between nylon/electro dream fountain pop and driven crunchy disco dirt while stopping to sample flavors of soul, punk, trip hop and whatever else slips by undetected.

Thanks to the all mighty Pitchfork for hooking everyone up with this great remix of Cut Copy by Hercules and Love Affair. What a great angular bassline. It totally has a 70s No Wave, ESG/James Chance vibe.

Risky Business: Tangerine Dream

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The score for Risky Business is 80s epic synth greatness courtsey of Mr. Edgar Froese & Tangerine Dream. This is Tangerine Dream’s most commerical movie score for they have scored over sixty-five other films as well as released over a hundred albums.

Here is my favorite track off the soundtrack, very Steve Reich:
Tangerine Dream – Love On A Real Train

These are some Tangerine Dream-esque sounding tracks. John Frusciante said that this song is directly influenced by Edgar Froese’s solo album, Epsilon In Malaysian Pale.
John Frusciante – 23 Go Into End

Guy-Man from Daft Punk helped produce this track
