Welcome to The Reprise!
Hello! Welcome to The Reprise, a new music website where we simply write about and chat to the artists we love.
The War on Drugs' Dave Hartley discusses the all-encompassing process of recording his new Nightlands album, I Can Feel the Night Around Me, and his enduring love for The Beach Boys' lesser-known creative peaks.
We speak to one of the pillars of the West Coast garage rock scene, Charles Moothart, about the writing and recording of his second solo album, Dichotomy Desaturated, his various collaborations with long-term friend Ty Segall, and his plans for the future.
Hand Habits' Meg Duffy discusses the writing and recording of her debut album, Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void), performing in both Kevin Morby's live band and Mega Bog, and her various other musical projects, past and present.
Multi-instrumentalist Ryan Moutinho talks to The Reprise about stepping down from Thee Oh Sees, playing in Meatbodies, the idea of 'dangerous art' in today's political climate, and his enduring love of Mac DeMarco and At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta's Omar Rodríguez-López.
After a taking an extended intermission for much of 2016, The Reprise is now rested, refreshed and ready for its comeback. With many features and interviews already brewing behind the scenes, we'll soon be resuming coverage on the artists we love on a regular basis. Watch this space.
Primavera Sound 2016 offers what could be the festival’s strongest line-up yet, shot through with greatness in every form, and from every decade. So much so that it can be a bit intimidating to the uninitiated. In order to help you navigate the no-doubt crowded stages and pick some absolute gems, The Reprise has done the research and picked our top 10 most anticipated bands.
Radiohead make their return, five long years after the divisise King of Limbs in 2011. Although it is too early to pass proper critical judgement at this early stage, we have decided to anyway as it is a new Radiohead song and therefore the very definition of 'a big deal'.
We sat down with Ought drummer Tim Keen and keyboardist Matt May to chat about life on the road, the making of their sophomore effort, and why the small surprises can have the biggest impact.
Kevin Morby's new album Singing Saw sees the young singer-songwriter blossom into one of the most promising talents in indie-rock, merging his influences into something totally his own. We take a look at his new album and the many other projects he has worked on.
Following a spellbinding performance of Mica Levi's Under the Skin score at Rewire Festival, Sean Greenhorn takes a look at the lasting importance of this stunning soundtrack.
