Two songs from Other People:
“Watch As They Go”
MAGNET interviews co-frontmen David Slade and Collins Kilgore of American Princes, creators of our favorite album of 2008. As noted in our year-end accolades, Other People (Yep Roc) works out jittery, cool ’80s guitar sounds but isn’t a slave to decades-old fashion. The Little Rock, Ark., band mainly delivers powerful pop hooks—and, as we learn below, a little bit of Jean-Paul Sartre. Slade and Kilgore spoke to MAGNET before reconvening in Little Rock to begin work on American Princes’ next album.
