Midnight Chats

Midnight Chats

United States

The best discussions often happen at the witching hour. These ones happen to be between musicians of note and the team behind Loud And Quiet magazine. Hosted in turn by Stuart Stubbs and Greg Cochrane, each episode of Midnight Chats is an intimate conversation with a recording artist currently making our job worthwhile. New episodes will be posted online, fittingly, at the stroke of midnight.


Ep 05: Gold Panda  

Ahead of his third album, 'Good Luck And Do Your Best', Essex-born musician Gold Panda discusses how Japan continues to inspire his music, how he doesn't miss his former homes in Chelmsford and Berlin, and how he's finally learned that electronic doesn't need to be dark and difficult in order to be clever or any good.

Ep 06: Kate Jackson  

After the sudden and sad end of her band The Long Blondes (due to founding guitarist Dorian Cox suffering a stroke), Kate Jackson moved to Rome and became an architectural painter. Now she's back in her hometown of Bury St Edmunds, making music again and about to release a debut solo album she made with Bernard Butler.

Ep 4: Cat's Eyes  

When Italian-Canadian soprano, composer and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Zeffira and Horrors frontman Faris Badwan come together, they made beautiful, dark music as Cat's Eyes. Here, they discuss winning a European film award, Paul McCartney, phobias and how they tricked the Catholic Church into allowing them to perform their very first show at The Vatican.

Ep 03: Saul Williams  

The New York rapper, actor, poet, author, and activist joins Loud And Quiet's Greg Cochrane for a late night conversation. In it Williams discusses the current state of hip hop, people power, David Bowie, literature and how he celebrates his leap year birthday.

Ep 02: Poliça's Channy Leaneagh  

Poliça's lyricist and front-woman Channy Leaneagh joins Loud And Quiet Editor Stuart Stubbs for a late-night conversation about her band's new album, 'United Crushers', and how making political videos with Sesame Street puppets can bring down police brutality, Donald Trump and Kanye West.

Ep 01: The Invisible's Dave Okumu  

The most honest, interesting, revealing conversations happen late at night. Presented by Loud And Quiet's Greg Cochrane, the first episode meets The Invisible's Dave Okumu. In it, he talked about his collaborative work with Grace Jones, David Lynch and Jessie Ware, as well as his time spent in Amy Winehouse's band and his involvement with Adele's '25'. Dave also told the gruelling story of his electrocution on stage in Nigeria in 2012, and incident which almost took his life.
