Wednesday, August 27, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Nasty Gal’s FYF Podcast with Joyce Manor, Mac DeMarco, and More

Yasi-Alanna-Gruesome

FYF was hot and crowded and hectic and loud—thus the perfect place to test drive my new podcast! Armed with my extensive knowledge of podcasts (AKA listening to “WTF with Marc Maron”) and thorough band research (Google on my iPhone), I hit the pavement at the fest and grabbed some of my favorite acts including Joyce Manor, Mac DeMarco, Jessy Lanza, and Alanna Gruesome of Joanna Gruesome, to have a chat with them about how their music was going, their festival highlights, and the situation in the Middle East (just kidding). Miss Steaktooth joined me for a few of the interviews, and together I’m pretty sure we managed to make every single interviewee uncomfortable. Yay!

HERO

Audible differences aside, women in music have long had at least one thing in common: Eyeliner—and lots of it. From the theatrical to the streamlined, music’s most memorable women have always been sporting heaps of the smudgy stuff. A few decades ago when there was no HD and nothing short of setting yourself on fire would get you spotted from the nosebleed section of a stadium-sized show, painted faces were one of he best ways to make a visual impact while performing. Here, we cover the best in rock ‘n’ roll eyeliner with both classic and contemporary musical muses, some of which you may have caught at FYF this past weekend.

This week’s mantra comes courtesy of artist Baron Von Fancy whose Instagram, if you’re not already familiar, is a beacon of inspiration (and screengrabs of retro cartoons), which is just what we need on a Monday morning.
