We met with Zac and Elvis of the band FIDLAR before their show at the Commodore this weekend. Filmed in the Bottleneck bar downstairs from the venue, the two FIDLAR members discussed some of their favorite and most influential albums from their collections. Starting with Neil Young, through Redd Cross and Rage Against the Machine and returning to 70’s era Jackson Brown, the two were entertaining and happily spoke at length about their favorite music. FIDLAR’S latest release TOO is now out on Mom +Pop/Dine Alone Records.

Since forming in 2009,FIDLAR quickly became one of the Los Angeles music scene’s most celebrated live acts thanks to their raucous live shows, which often concluded with the majority of audience members joining the band on-stage. Since formation, the band has toured the world and played with The Pixies, The Hives, Black Lips, OFF!, Jeff The Brotherhood, The Orwells, Wavves, The Delta Spirit and more. Their debut self-titled full-length album was released in North America in January of 2013.
My name is Charles Brownstein and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I presently live in Vancouver, BC.
I am a true lover of music, food, books, film, and stand-up comedy. Foremost it is music that I love, that is what drove me to create this site. I confess to liking Duran Duran and the Bee gees in my youth.I prefer In Utero to Nevermind and safe as milk instead of Trout Mask Replica.
Northern Transmissions is a Music website that features interviews from musicians and bands we love. We have interviewed so many of them, from The Drums to Destroyer. We review albums by from many labels around the world, including Merge, Sub pop, Bella union, Matador, 4AD, Rough Trade, Capture Tracks, Hardly Art, and many many more.
Hope you guys enjoy the website as much as we like working on it.
