I had a great chat with Greg Dulli about the new Afghan Whigs' album, In Spades, for Under The Radar. I'm very pleased with this piece, we went pretty deep. My favourite record of the year so far, with 'Toy Automatic' and 'I Got Lost' being my favourite songs of the year so far.

"Goldfrapp: Electromysticism" for Under The Radar. Spoke with Will & Alison about their rather excellent new record, Silver Eye. This piece also ran in the Spring 2017 issue of Under The Radar.

I interviewed Gerard Way at the North Carolina Comicon. Great conversation about his new Young Animal imprint, music, and 'making art to make a difference'.
