The Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio goes solo for his first EP on cult label Greco-Roman with a new mix to guide us through his latest sounds
Ahead of the release of his first solo EP on the Greco-Roman label (of Joe Goddard, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Drums of Death), Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio makes us an exclusive new mix and chats to us about his weird foldy tongue and terrible diet...
...your party trick?
I can do that thing where you fold your tongue up. It never fails to underwhelm at a party. Daniel Radcliffe can do it too! http://anythinghollywood.com/wp-content/2012/02/daniel_radcliffe_el_hormiguero_video_grab_3-460x371.jpg
...your worst vice?
Roughly 80% of my diet is vice.
... your favourite sound?
Silence after a long and loud night.
...your favourite website?
... the best thing about where you're from?
Lots of great food & friends nearby.
...better, analogue or digital?
I love stuff that channels both really well. For working I prefer digital.
...your worst fashion secret?
I had bleached-blonde hair in high school. Twice.
...are you listening to now?
Orthy - Suenos (AA Disco Fix)
How would you describe your work?
Sometimes it's a guy with a receding hairline and bad posture slumping in front of a computer screen. Other times it's a guy with a receding hairline and bad posture playing bass while standing up.
