A few press items of interest this week, including a nice little sit-down discussion between Jon DeRosa and the great Tobias Carrol of Volume 1 Brooklyn, where they talk about some of Jon's past projects (read: Aarktica, Pale Horse and Rider), current reading, and how to pull off covering Danzig: The cardinal sin of cover songs is: Don’t cover a song if 1) it’s already perfect the way it is or 2) you can’t make it better, or at least more interesting than the original. That’s why I will never be able to cover Harry Nilsson. Read the entire interview here: http://vol1brooklyn.com/2011/10/04/band-booking-jon-derosa/.
Another notable bit of press comes from the beloved long-standing UK publication Terrascope, who reviews DeRosa's new Anchored EP: The title track is a dirgy lament that echoes The Cure and Echo and The Bunnymen at their most introspective, with perhaps a touch of Jason Pierce’s Spiritualized project trickling through.
