Artists Perform And Discuss Their Music.

|Will You Love Me Forever||New York City Hotel Blues|
The influence of time and place on any form of musical output is always interesting. When it came to recording their latest album Buzzard, the Midwest, indie collective Margot and the Nuclear So and So's took to an abandoned movie house, digging through stacks of old reels they found on site when they had the chance. According to singer/guitarist Richard Edwards, most were 8mm 'nudie cutie' kind of cuts, helping to "add a layer of grime, which is always what we're going for".
Though it offers viewers no grime, Edwards once again echoes his surroundings with our latest segment of The Guest apartment. Here, Edwards trades a tarnished theater setting in Chicago's Ukrainian Village for a community garden in New York's East Village, giving performances of two of Buzzard's cuts a more pastoral glint than their recorded counterparts. Here, "Will You Love Me Forever?" and "New York City Hotel Blues" feel intimate and private. Perhaps it's a place that will one day inspire Edwards to commandeer a similar setting for the recording of his next album. Until then, our latest segment of The Guest Apartment offers you the perfect time and place to see a gentler side of Margot and the Nuclear So and So's. - David Pitz
