    The 405 meets Röyksopp

    by Lior Phillips

    We recently caught up with Svein Berge from his home in Bergen, Norway, to talk about their music, which he so perfectly refers to as "dancing with tears in your eyes," and chats at length about human heartache that goes beyond understanding. It's quite bizarre recounting someone’s work from 2001-2014. Like paging through their diary together, but it was as though the memories never faded and he feels the same way about making music as he did back then. [read more]

    "I cannot stress enough that the answer to life's questions is often in people's faces. Try putting your iPhones down once in a while, and look in people's faces. People's faces will tell you amazing things. Like if they are angry, or nauseous or asleep." [read more]

  • Essential Playlist: The National

    Essential Playlist: The National

    by Will Richards

    A discography comprising six full-length albums as well as a bunch of b-sides, EPs and rarities is more than a little daunting when diving into the world of that band all your friends tell you you'll adore. Some bands actually are worth the slog though. [read more]

    Cristobal and The Sea's Top 5 Favourite Albums

    by The 405

    "All the albums we picked were taken from our vinyl collection. It is a rather limited one. That is why we turned to it, to pick 5 our favourite albums of the last few years, since the modest number would make it easier for us to choose. These are all albums that we have repeatedly listened to, with our friends, through out the last few years, so they have a lot of nostalgia attached to them. We hope you enjoy the selection!"

    Top 5 Videos of The Week

    "When someone shows you how little you mean to them and you keep coming back for more, before you know it you start to mean less to yourself. You are not made up of compartments. You are one whole person! What gets said to you gets said to all of you, ditto what gets done. Being treated like shit is not an amusing game or a transgressive intellectual experiment. It's something you accept, condone, and learn to believe you deserve. This is so simple. But I tried so hard to make it complicated." [read more]

  • The 405 Readers' Poll 2014

    The 405 Readers' Poll 2014

    by The 405

    Music, like all art, is totally subjective. And with music being as multifarious as it is, there are literally thousands of possible songs, albums and artists that could have made your year. Maybe you have just been listening to Beyoncé all year? Even so, it's interesting to know what people have been digging, what's been floating people's boats, making their days, weeks, months, making their whole year. [read more]

  • The 405 meets HUGH

    The 405 meets HUGH

    by Courtney Buck

    One of the great things about music in our modern times is the increasingly blurred lines in genres. It's not uncommon to find so called "traditional" R&B acts dipping a toe into the dance or pop world and of course, history has taught us that hip-hop and rock are a lot more closely related that one had thought. Hugh are prime examples of genre fusion at its best. [read more]

    The 405 meets Benjamin Booker

    by Kylie O'Connell

    His Mum only went to see him play live for the first time a few weeks ago, in Florida where he grew up. When I asked him why she hadn’t been to see him earlier, it was obvious his music was something he's kept to himself for a while. [read more]

    The 405 meets Tess Parks: "So far everything I've fantastically dreamt about in my life has come true."

    by Lydia Morrish

    Now at 24, she has her foot firmly in the ground of the psych-rock world, buddies with many we can only dream of, including Brian Jonestown Massacre's brain Anton Newcombe, who she this year wrote an album with, Joel Gion, who she toured with this summer, and fellow Canuck Mac DeMarco.
