Dave longstreth amber coffman dating
I remember thinking ‘God I hope they can see beyond how badly recorded these ideas are..’I think they thought it was real weird at first and then they really warmed up to it.Some of the takes are straight from my Garage Band night.Indie rock/pop act Ra Ra Riot, with three albums and several prime time appearances to their name, was one of them.The Brooklyn band Dirty Projectors also took to the stage.
How did growing up in California, playing in the band and other experiences from that period, helped inform your work in the Dirty Projectors? I was born in Texas, lived in Texas and Ohio until age 8, then to California in the middle of 3rd grade, to a school in San Jose. I remember the music time was this hippy dude who would just play Beatles songs that we'd sing along to. But I moved around a lot within California as well.
I only met Dave Longstreth by being on tour with Sleeping People, so it all feels like it was all very important for the time and that I was on the right track.
By the time I met Dave I was really ready to be singing more, and he loved R&B shamelessly (which had not been the case for any rock musicians I had known previously.) Suddenly, it was okay to dig back into that part of myself, and it all felt much more like me. Can you talk a little about working on that song, how you interpret its lyrics, and what feeling it instills in you as you play it?
Also, do you ever worry that such academia might make your group come off as pretentious?
People can only base their judgment off their own experience and the information and context they are given, I suppose.
