Interview – Broken Circles Records

Broken Circles is one of the many young upstart labels that are doing it right. They’re not just businessmen, they’re music fans. Which is obvious, considering that they have pressed a large amount of the back catalog of Tooth & [...]

Interview and Video Premier – Secret Mountains

Secret Mountains is a spectacularly talented young sextet out of Baltimore, whose series of EPs deserve a place on anyone’s stereo. They are an incredibly powerful band, but what jumps out at you immediately (and ironically) upon hearing their work, [...]

This little gem is an interview I conducted way back in late July. “So why is it being published now in December?” I hear you (and in all likelihood, the members of Gold Motel, ask). Well, much like our favorite [...]

Interview – As Cities Burn

    As Cities Burn is a pretty special band to us here at Type In Stereo, or at least to myself (and Chris of course). They belong to an elite fraternity of bands (TREOS being the other) that made [...]

Anton Dang of O’Brother Interview

O’Brother is a band that is carrying the torch for post-hardcore music. They have managed to adopt and adapt multiple musical styles into something genuinely new and exciting. Their 2011 release, Garden Window, is a beautifully crafted meditation on the [...]
