[BadPanda139] Nerve Leak – Atlantic Hold

leave a comment »

Nerve Leak – Sam Friedman from Virginia – creates deep emotional soundscapes; lost in dark sub bass, melodic vocal layers, and moving percussion. Burial would be proud of this guy.


Nerve Leak – Atlantic Hold [mp3]

Where do you live actually?

Richmond, Virginia

Your addiction?

Music… Coffee… music.

What sound or noise do you love?

I love the sounds of water – waves, rain, streams, etc. And city sounds… hearing the freeway in the distance while sitting at the james river is always a good time… too many to choose

One quote?

Not sure about one, but “the best you can is good enough” (Radiohead – Optimisitc) has always been helpful for me.

Which song do you listen to when you wake up?

It varies. I used to drive to school in the mornings listening to Burial’s Street Halo EP. I’m not a morning person so usually something light.

A song you wish you wrote yourself?

How To Disappear Completely by Radiohead.

A song for relaxing on a beach?

Happiness by Jonsi & Alex

Your Sunday morning track?

This Sunday morning, I listened to Like Totally by Gold Panda… very fitting, but it always varies.

The song to be played at your funeral?

Something by Sigur Ros probably

What do you think about music industry?

I think there is still a ton of great music coming out on the underground. I try to block out big label “entertainment” music as much as possible.

What about Creative Commons?

I think it’s an awesome idea. It’s hard to make a living making music these days with the internet and all, but it has also never been easier to get your music out to people around the world and that’s really important.

Best concert attended?

Jonsi at the 9:30 club in D.C.

Favorite place on earth?

I’m not sure… I love being in the water whether it’s the atlantic ocean or the james river etc. It just feels right. Even when it’s winter and you can barely stand to dip your feet in. I also love walking through the city with a good pair of headphones.

Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?

On tour
