Last year I dropped the ball on releasing an interview I had with Jeremy Bolm (Touche Amore) and Jordan Dreyer (La Dispute) discussing and questioning each other about their bands' work on last year's split, Searching For a Pulse/Worth of the World. You can now read the first half of the interview here and head to the replies to read a few follow-up questions from Bolm about the upcoming release of Touche Amore's Parting the Sea Between the Brightness and Me. Check back soon for the second half and a follow-up from Dreyer about the upcoming La Dispute album.
Like many, my love of music started with my parents' collection and the first time I heard my mother's copy of The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour. This week's Five and Alive attempts to see if our parents feel any love for our iPod mixes. La Dispute's Adam Vass sat down with his mom to attempt to close the generational gap. See his results in the replies and discuss what albums/songs are "okay" to put on in the car or at the house for the 'rents.
In our interview last night, La Dispute confirmed they are indeed working on a new album and two split 7" records. One split is going to be with Touche Amore, but they couldn't reveal the second at the time of interview. A review of the tour can be seen here.
La Dispute's album Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair is now available on iTunes. Maybe you should give it a whirl; Blake did say it "fused diversity and meaningfulness into an album that surges forward without ever looking back."
