We asked our friends at Deap Vally to talk about some different types of love. ..
songs/ Edith Piaf- La vie en rose, Arcade Fire- My body is a cage, PJ Harvey- To bring you my love, Vincent Gallo- Honey Bunny
shows /My favorite show we ever played was a sold out show during last fall’s tour at the Concorde 2 in Brighton, England. The crowd was so emotive, singing along to every word, giving themselves’ to the moment completely. The energy in the room was unhinged, there was so much love being given and received. It was a perfect moment. I was so grateful. I remember thinking that no matter what happens in the future, no matter how many struggles I encounter in my life and career, I will always have this moment.
anything / Squeezing the fat on babies legs, Breathing the scent of the person I’m in love with, Bichon Frise Fur, My family and friends…they are everything to me.
songs/ Bootsy Collins- I’d rather be with you, 10CC- I’m not in love, Sinead O’Connor- Nothing compares to you, The B 52’s- Love Shack
shows / DESERT DAZE Music Festival,–Well, I’m biased on this one as I helped organize the festival with my husband Phil Pirrone, and this year we played, and so did my husband (JUUUJUUU), my brother (Autolux), and his wife (The Raveonetts)! It was a cozy family affair and a lot of work. My parents came and it made them so happy
anything / Slurpees, My husbands neck, This American Life on radio, Hot Tubs.
