27 Dec 2011, 16:22 by Rowsell1985We Fell to Earth Interview
So what the deal with the name? are you aliens or angels?
Richard: Do we have a choice?
You could be meteorites I suppose.
Richard: That’d be alright, you wanna make a mark don’t ya?
Nice big crater yeah. So is there any meaning behind the name then?
Richard: The man who fell to earth was around in both our lives at the time we were thinking of names and it was suggested.
I wouldn’t have thought David Bowie was a major influence?
Richard: He’s certainly an inspiration, but not a major influence at this stage.
Wendy: There are some sounds of some Bowie records that we are inspired by.
You both love of krautrock, How do you respond to people who see you as more trip-hop than kraut rock?
Richard: Half time beats with double time percussion is something massive attack have done in the past but they are not the originators of that sound. Because we have female vocals people say we’re like Portishead or because there’s a half speed beat they say it’s like Massive Attack. …

13 Mar 2011, 14:41 by mikeropologyI wanted to build a mix around my choice of stand-out 2010 songs, but every time I tried to do that, I failed miserably. The initial lineup was just too unwieldy, requiring a lot of editing to get the thing down to a human scale. Then the songs that remained seemed to hop all over the place style-wise. Maybe it's a stupid OCD thing on my part, but I feel like a proper mix-tape should have a cohesiveness to it, whether that be genre-based, melodic, emotional (lyrical) -- there has to be something that ties what the ear is experiencing to the actual compilation. Three months later, I do have a top-2010 mix done and ready to burn (with caveats). This just isn't it.
Samurai Jumpsuit feels more personal than any year-in-review album I could come up with. And I can honestly say that I absolutely, 100%, love all of the songs on this mix. This is subway-headphone music; late night walking, shoulder-to-shoulder, crowed dodging, street jogging workout music. It's something I'd listen to to escape everything-else music. …
