letter from the editor

Under the Radar has always been a company 100% independently owned by my wife/co-publisher Wendy Redfern and myself. We don’t have a big corporate entity bankrolling us. We don’t run advertorials or sponsored content. We have kept our music journalism truly honest and written about the artists we are most passionate about. We have printed 62 issues in close to 16 years and kept a daily website going, with a smaller staff and lower budget than you’d probably imagine, all while raising our four-and-a-half year-old daughter Rose. Pitchfork is owned by publishing giant Condé Nast (who also publish Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, and The New Yorker ). Stereogum is owned by Eldridge Industries (who also own Spin, Billboard, and The Hollywood Reporter ). Magnet is published by Red…

torres

Shervin Lainez “Nothing is off limits. I think that’s what people should know.” This quote was given by Mackenzie Scott, artistically know as TORRES, in discussion of a particular lyric off her third album, Three Futures . But it very well could apply to Scott’s career as a whole. After the soft introspection of her 2013 self-titled debut as TORRES, Scott made an about face and released 2015’s Sprinter , a visceral album that was awash with heavy guitar and rage. And now, with Three Futures , she has changed course again with an album constructed around electronic beats and influenced by groups like Can, Kraftwerk, and Portishead. “Can and Kraftwerk were both bands that my…

protomartyr

He wasn’t exactly depressed before he formed Protomartyr, frontman Joe Casey says, but he didn’t have a lot to look forward to, either. Eight years later, he’s 40, and his band is ready to release its fourth LP, Relatives in Descent , its first on Domino. “[The band has] worked parts of my brain that I had kind of let go fallow for a while. It keeps me busy; it keeps me thinking about what’s going to happen tomorrow.” Casey is comfortable looking towards his future, but on stage, he takes off his glasses so he can’t see the crowd, or maybe so he can’t see the crowd seeing him. “It’s the worst possible mental image I could have,” he says. “I’ll wake…

courtney barnett & kurt vile

A strange sort of math seems to underlie the chemistry of creativity. Any time two great artists are added to each other in equal measures, the product of their union almost always yields something less than what either of them could create on their own. On music’s periodic table, Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile represent stable elements, two singer/songwriters who have refined their work to the point that they have become instantly recognizable and distinct creative personas. Putting them together in the same equation seems like a formula for too many ideas and not enough space for either artist to fully stretch out. But here, at least, the usual math breaks down. On Lotta Sea Lice , their nine-song collaboration, Barnett and Vile sound like two artists…
