Koplowitz speaks about his music with confidence; he'd like to record in a studio, work with a producer, make something less "clubby and poppy," and put a greater emphasis on complex drum beats and intricate song structures. He doesn't have a personal manifesto, but it doesn't take him too long to draft one. "Honestly, I feel like I should probably have a philosophy, but personally, my musical preferences change on a daily basis. One day, I'll be like, 'Oh, I'm really into electronica music,' and the next day, I'll be like, 'Oh, I really want to use an acoustic guitar,' and so I find myself getting frustrated with myself because I'm not very consistent when it comes to writing music. . . . I think my philosophy is just, 'Make yourself like it so much that it doesn't matter if other people like it.' "

  •   WILD BELLE PUSH MAGICAL BUTTONS  |  February 11, 2013
    Wild Belle's multi-ethnic allegiances — Afropop, reggae, and rocksteady — fuse into American indie-pop and classic rock. Results are, at varying times, tropical, tepid, and tempestuous.
  •   THE LUMINEERS AIM FOR THE RAFTERS  |  February 01, 2013
    Jeremiah Fraites isn't famous — at least not yet. The drummer of the Lumineers, the folk trio who experienced an outrageously fruitful 2012, is talking to me two days before appearing on the January 19 Saturday Night Live, but he doesn't sound convinced that his band have crossed the fame threshold.
  •   PHANTOM GLUE COME INTO FOCUS  |  January 23, 2013
    Variations of "nightmarish" and "psychedelic" come up repeatedly as Matt Oates describes his band's work — which makes sense, given that Phantom Glue trace their roots back to Slayer, the Jesus Lizard, and cult post-hardcore act KARP.
