Weekend Reading: Interview roundup

While I was away, a number of interesting interviews showed up online. I have yet to find the time to read them all myself, but thought I’d share the links in case anyone is in need of some reading material for the weekend.

First up a link I should’ve passed on while it was still hot a week or so ago, as Shawn Despres had talked to both Chang Kiha & The Faces and The Rocktigers as they were preparing their shows in Japan:
Indie breakout, ‘kimchibilly’ rockers bring Seoul to Japan

Shawn Despres also had a piece in Groove Korea last month, where one can learn more on Indieful ROK favorite Sunkyeol: Sunkyeol’s Blend of Hazy Psych-pop, Folk, and Post-rock

In the same Groove Korea issue, Eric Reichbaum had written a bit on ska act No.1 Korean: No. 1 Korean

KoME published a couple of interviews in October:

10asia too had interviewed No Reply as band no.10 in their Indie 10 series:
