So here’s the thing, I’ve been a bit slack on the ol’ blog posts lately and well I’m going to blame it on the huge amount of great parties going down in Perth at the moment/this Summer/actually always.
To make up for it I’ve got a tasty little morsel of an interview with Hindley.
Always the creator of his own narrative, Alex Hindley produces, creates, interviews and writes, and I’ll bet a red lobster that list will expand as each project he undertakes strengthens his own brand of creativity.
Describe your sound in 5 words, please.
Music for hate, for love.
I really vibe the artwork you choose to feature with your tracks, what is the process behind this?
I usually like to either create them myself or source an artist who’s work I admire. For example the WEAK, Dejection Psalms and Migraine covers are my design, but I’ve had art commissioned by Oliver Haidutschek and Feeb Lee or used art with permission from artists like Erin M. Riley.
A lot of people have said that Perth is in a slump, while others say the creativity scene has never been better. How do you feel about Perth right now?
Perth is a beautiful nightmare. It’s easy for diverse and unique talent to stand out, the acts who deserve a pedestal to play on, however it’s just as easy to fall from narcissism or climb from infamy.
When can we see you live next?
Always planning good live shows but I’d love to see the people come down for the 9th Beat down competition.
Your Top 5 Local Artists who are killing it on Soundcloud…
In no ranking;
Chiseko – Deep love for hip hop, no time for wave riding.
Your Girl Pho – Old mate Phoebe has one of the most dynamic voices and interesting production teams in Perth.
Tobacco Rat – Easily one of the most intense live performers in Perth, cares for the craft, creates for the dark.
TWERL – Tertiary institute classmates gone on the electronic uplift, really cool to see those two doing so well.
MAX BLACK – Impossible to deny the natural quality and flourish Max has with production, every new drop is always gold.
Also Kopano, my friend/collaborator/mentor is set to release big things on her soundcloud (and elsewhere) very soon so keep the peepers peeping.
