Interview with Kasabian

Casabian shoot 2011

Interview by Bruce Rave

Mike of B3SCI and I hit this month’s Kasabian show at LA’s Wiltern. The band blew everyone away with their usual precision and intensity. I hung with producer/creative force Serge and lead singer Tom of Kasabian at their LA hotel bar the next week when the band were back in town for their appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. We covered much, including industry trends, their plans for America, Serge as band producer, and of course their music. Interesting fact: both Serge and Tom loved Michael Jackson’s Bad album in their very young years.

Hear Bruce’s “Go Deep With Bruce Rave” weekly new music show on Indie1031/Los Angeles, KX 93.5-FM/Laguna Beach, and WSUM-FM/Madison. Details and archived shows can be found on his blog and be sure to follow Bruce on Twitter too!

Liv – Special

liv

UK R&B artist Liv follows up the great “Come a Little Closer” from earlier this month with the more straightforward soul of “Special”. Framed by low touch guitar strums and a crossover R&B-friendly rhythm track, “Special” succeeds on its believability and soul-soothing melodic quality.

Superstitions is out November 11th.
