This was one of my favorites. Last day of South by Southwest. Exhausted. My feet fell off somewhere on Sixth Street the night before. Pretty much ready to take a nap on the sidewalk. Completely ignoring all of that, because I get to interview Cherub, and there is no way not to be pumped about that.
We love this band. We all flipped over 100 Bottles when it came out last year, and we are more than ready for Year of the Caprese to come out on May 27 (as my poor friends know, I have a higher tolerance for listening to the same album/song/band for months on end than most people, so guys – you better like this one, because I have a feeling this is my 2014 Summer soundtrack).
I was super dang excited when I found out that I was going to get to interview Cherub at SXSW this year. Aside from being amazing musicians who put on an awesome live show (I just so happen to be seeing them tomorrow night at the Georgia Theatre in Athens!), I found out that they are also genuinely delightful dudes (#accidentalalliteration). Check out the Vinyl Video below to watch us talk about their music, applesauce, chunky vs. creamy peanut butter and what is next for Cherub.
Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
