If you're a close observer of what I said when "I'm on an indefinite hiatus with my blog", I said I wasn't done with this thing forever. And this interview that I cut together is proof positive that I'm not done yet.
I recorded the following interview with a dear friend of mine, Erin Rioux, a few weeks back. He records and performs under his last name, pronounced "Ree-you". Rioux produces psychedelic electronic music that toes the line between the complexity of LA beat guys (Flying Lotus, Shlomo) and accessible pop nuggets.
Rioux released Come On All On You Ghosts earlier this summer which is available for free download at his Facebook page. A remix album is on the way as is a show "to be announced" at the end of September. Stay tuned to Rioux.fm for more details on all of that.
I cut together this interview as more of an introduction to Erin and his music, rather than an exhaustive discourse, with the hopes of making it a musical entity onto itself. I'm not sure if I will make this a regular thing but I hope you enjoy.
Thanks for listening.
