Lovely band. All the way from Washington D.C., I’ve got Misun here on Disco Droppings to talk about their music and such. 

DD Misun is a 3-piece band consisting of Misun Wojcik, William Devon and Nacey aka Andrew Wallace. What kind of character do you feel each person adds to the group? 

MW Overall we are really easygoing and fun. A little nutty for sure though. I’d say something like this. Andrew is Easygoing vibes, and Will’s a never-ending dance machine. I’m passionate in a batty kind of way. Although we are all very serious about music and what we do. 

 

DD The T&A Records description of your debut EP The Sea says it was marine-inspired. Do you guys have an especially strong affinity towards the sea, or was this theme more about an open-ended idea? 

AW I think so, but we weren’t really aware it until we were finishing the record. I guess the combination of the lyrics about the sea, sampling ocean sounds and kind of a wavy/washed out quality of the instruments contributed to that. But we’re all from Maryland, so going to the beach is something we’re used to. 

DD I’m especially enjoying the evolution of Misun shown in these most recent songs. My favorite is probably “Battlefields”. I feel that every element in here is perfect, and the Soundcloud comments comparing it to a Quentin Tarantino film are very fitting. What kinds of films can you imagine Misun soundtracking? 

AW I’m a huge fan of spaghetti westerns and would love to soundtrack some old fashioned cowboy shootouts. But we’re writing everything from club music to really vibey ballads lately, so who knows! 

 

DD I’m also very into “Harlot” and your newest one “Darkroom”. Will all these new ones make it onto your upcoming album? 

MW Yes, for sure! They’re some of our favorites. 

DD Lastly, when things just aren’t going right or you’re in a creative rut, how do you guys get into a more positive space? 

WD We’ll usually take a walk. To get coffee or beer, or both. And our secret weapon is Mountain Dew.

If you’re unaware, I have joined the Bottom Forty DJ collective, based in Seattle. Run by Nark, this crew acts as a resource for lovers of underground music. Via the newly released Bottom Forty site, each of the members (Nark, Riff-Raff, Spaceotter, Pavone, Tony Radovich and myself) will post about music every week. In addition, we have a podcast series, featuring exclusive mixes and interviews. Each B40 member is requesting mixes from people we like, and working on mixes ourselves to debut. I’ve asked some of my friends to create podcast mixes, so keep an eye out for those, along with mine which will hopefully be up in the next few weeks.

You’ll notice my Bottom Forty posts often piggybacking Disco Droppings features, giving additional support to artists I’m fond of. So far I’ve written about Rubix, Misun, Dreams, Sleepyhead, Karma Kid, Velour, Boston Bun, Qween Beat, Nacey and most recently, Mirror State. Almost all of those have links to free downloads.
