Where are they now? While we wait for the next round of Parlour to Parlour video interviews, Michael Fortes catches up with last year’s Parlour to Parlour subjects, starting with an exciting development in the world of The Brother Kite.
This week’s episode of Parlour to Parlour captures some of the excitement in the air as the energetic L.A. band The Happy Hollows were preparing for an appearance at Austin’s South by Southwest festival and feverishly working on recordings for their debut full-length album, Spells.
Immediately after I had wrapped the Daniel James interview (which you undoubtedly watched last week) on February 15, the second part of the day began as I made my way to the train to cross the San Francisco Bay into Oakland. My appointment was at a practice space, which turned out to be a more convenient location for everyone than an apartment. Awaiting me there were Robin Landy and Eric Kuhn, the instrumental indie rock duo known as Silian Rail. I had met them on an assignment for Performer Magazine that, due to the company’s restructuring, was never published. I hope this episode can make up for it.
