An interview with an interviewer…Danielle Look

HG interviews have never solely been about music artist, we like to talk too all types of people with passion. This time we interviewed the interviewer- Danielle Look.

Danielle Look is the music editor for where she doubles as a bass music enthusiast, music festival professional, and devoted dog lover. She recently tweeted that NOLA bounce is her musical guilty pleasure.

HG: 1. Quick, name 3 new Artist that you love right now! Danielle: I just picked up some new favorites at SXSW.
A. I sniffed out He's My Brother, She's My Sister before I went to South By & set up an interview with them. They were fun and crazy and the performance exceeded expectations.

B. I discovered Dual Mode at a Portland, OR showcase at a hole-in-the-wall bar called The Grackle on Austin's east side. As described in my
recap, Dual Mode is "one part production and two parts emcee; their minimalist approach to crude electronic hip hop is racy, irresistible, and unapologetic."

C. Cherub, a glam rock electronic two piece from Nashville, TN who sound like a less-flamboyant Scissor Sisters. On Saturday afternoon, the closing day of SXSW, they played for a tiny room of less than 50 people in a house-turned-sushi bar called Wuwu. We did an interview after the set where they gave me the recipe for an Emergen-C Mimosa as festival survival advice.

HG: 2. What exciting things are on the rise for indyMojo?
Danielle: We're still basking in the glow of the launch of Mojo Radio. The interface is endlessly improving, the iPhone and Android apps are live & functioning, and new station IDs & local tracks are popping up more and more frequently. Program Director Rudy Kizer was in Miami, FL recently for Ultra and aired updates and interviews throughout the weekend. I expect the next jump to be regular shows from the G9 roster of DJs & producers, and eventually my own show that will focus on local music and musicians.

HG: 3. What albums are you looking forward to hearing this year?
Danielle: "Matangi" by M.I.A.
"Random Access Memories" by Daft Punk
the second half of ""The 20/20 Experience" by Justin Timberlake
Also, that new Indian City Weather album. Last update from the band was on March 19th: Just had some good news pop up about or new full length that's been in limbo forever. We're not dead, I pinky swear.

HG: For the Next Question please answer with a BOLD FACE LIE4. Where did you grow up?Danielle: 1060 West Addison
HG: 5. Name six Indy Artist that come to mind.Danielle: Tiara Thomas,  Myah Evans, KO, Cosby Sweater, Max Allen Band, Topher Jones
For the Next 2 Questions please answer with a color
ex. How does the 1998 album Psyence Fiction by U.N.K.L.E. make you feel? Purple

HG: 6. How do you feel about interludes and skits on albums?
Danielle: eggshell white

HG: 7. How does the 1998 album Psyence Fiction by U.N.K.L.E. make you feel?
Danielle: turquoise 
HG: 8. What do you feel is missing from the music scene in Indy? 
Danielle: I think a lot of people get too comfortable with local fame and never aspire to go any further than that. We have some incredible talent that would be adored by music lovers outside of the city just as much as their hometown fans, but the only way that will happen is if the bands pack up the gear and play out to new cities and get in front of new crowds.
Second to that, once they hit the road they need to share the experience. I would like to see more of Indy's bands and artists reporting back on shows and tours. Create a buzz for yourself by letting your fan base see you in action and watch you grow.

HG: 9. If you could tour as a writer with any Artist who would that be?
Danielle: As amazing as it would be to follow a famous artist with crazy fans and huge production, I’d equally rather tour with a local band. Right now I really admire Cosby Sweater, who will make a commendable entry into the festival circuit this summer with appearances at Summer Camp, Electric Forest, and Camp Bisco. They’re also strategically cultivating a fan base in Colorado, having already played there once before and following up with a day in Boulder on April 5th and a return tour in May. How cool would it be to bring to take Indianapolis along on tour with a homegrown band like Cosby Sweater?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
