Q&A: Slam Donahue Talk New EP, New York And Making Pop Music

Slam Donahue, one of New York City's newest additions composed of singer/guitarist David Otto and bassist Thomas Sommerville, are currently playing the CMJ circuit. And although it may be easy to become lost in the sea of bands trying to make a name for themselves, Slam Donahue shouldn't have much of a problem.

And after staying silent for a good year, Local Natives headlined a CMJ showcase last night. And if that isn't enough, they have now officially announced the release of their sophomore album, Hummingbird, which will be released on January 29 via Frenchkiss Records/Infectious Music.

Slow, dark, broody, woozy. Tropic of Cancer take the shoegaze aesthetic and mix it with electronic music, churn it over a slow BPM and crank up the reverb on the vocals. It’s awesome.

The Linn Tools That Never Were: Roger Linn Shares Shelved Designs [Gallery]

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Thu 18 Oct 2012 2:13 pm

Designer Roger Linn is beloved by producers for drum machines like the MPC, beloved by guitarists for AdrenaLinn, and now newly respected for the Tempest with Dave Smith. But for anyone who imagines design is a direct line from idea to product, it’s not. Whether Roger Linn or Apple, the process leaves the way littered with discarded creations.

Of course, that doesn’t mean these are bad ideas. Now that we live in a world of DIY, some intrepid musical souls will make products for an audience of one. And where designs are discarded, ideas often survive.

Roger Linn writes CDM to let us know he’s posted a selection of shelved products. Disclosure: I’ve seen some of these before, and even spent time talking to Roger about his dreams of an integrated drum machine computer. It’s interesting to see modular ideas – something DIYers (and recently, maker Livid) have taken on. Here, that covers not only traditional tabletop controllers with knobs, pads, and faders, but guitar foot controllers, as well – something I hope someone tries.

There are also various stabs at new drum pad controller layouts, including a computer dock, though if anything, these suggest to me that a blank slate is now the best beginning point – perhaps MPC-style controllers are best left to Akai, and it’s time for new ideas. Of course, that means the one product here you might still want is the one you still don’t get – the LinnStrument touch controller. Perhaps the controllers of the future will look different altogether. Just be prepared for a lot more scrapped ideas along the way. Happily, that’s half the fun.

Some of those ideas did make it into shipping products: in both ideas saved and tossed, you can trace the evolution of the Tempest.

Enjoy the gallery, and let us know if you can glean any lessons from what Roger threw out.
