Interviews

Apr 21, 2022

Lily Konigsberg has been kicking around as part of the NYC punk/no wave outfit Palberta for the better part of 10 years. She also recently released her first, and much more pop oriented, solo album (Lily We Need to Talk Now) late last year. Nate Amos is the musical mind behind the quickly rising synth pop duo Water From Your Eyes. He also records solo as This Is Lorelai, and in a prior life performed with his father’s bluegrass band. So how (and why) did these two find time to create yet another outlet for their musical musings with their new band, My Idea? More

“Covers of Covers” – Inside Under the Radar’s First Album

Track-by-Track: Each Artist on Their Contribution to the Album

Mar 04, 2022

When hatching plans to celebrate Under the Radar’s 20th anniversary I knew I wanted to go beyond just producing a special 20th anniversary issue. Despite two decades of writing about albums, one thing we’d never done is actually put one out ourselves. Thus I came upon the idea for Covers of Covers. The concept was so perfect and simple that I’m surprised we hadn’t thought of it before. We approached some of our favorite musicians and asked them to cover any song by any artist who had been on the front or back cover of our print issue over the years, including artists that had appeared in group cover shots.
