The Most Anticipated Albums of 2010 section in Under the Radar's Winter 2010 Issue includes a short article on School of Seven Bells' new album. We've now posted the full Q&A of that interview with Alejandra Deheza.

In preparing the follow-up to its 2008 full-length debut Alpinisms, a vibrant collection of dreampop harmonies, shoegaze guitars and synthetic tribal beats, Brooklyn trio School of Seven Bells didn't plan to change its recording process all that much. As they did with the songs on Alpinisms, the three musicianstwin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza and Benjamin Curtiswould produce the tracks themselves while recording at both their rehearsal space and the house they share. While speaking with Under the Radar in early January, Alejandra said that Curtis was doing most of the producing and described him as an effects junkie who is always finding new things. And though she has discovered some "really fun" guitar pedals between albums, Alejandra says the sophomore album Disconnect From Desire won't feature any new instruments or reflect any recently discovered musical influences. Yet, she contends that the album, to be released on Vagrant Records, is a departure from its predecessor, simply because the music and lyrics come from a different time and place. "I love Alpinisms, but I definitely think this is a way better record," she says. Click here to read the full interview.
