Bayli Wants to Tell You Stories

Bayli (Xavier Luggage)

From Peggy Gou to the 1975

Also this week:

Print star Bayli told us that,

Stories From New York is really my experiences in New York, it’s giving people who are hearing me for the first time an idea about who I am,” Bayli says. “So you have songs like ‘Sushi For Breakfast.’ I talk about queerness, I come out as a queer person on Stories from New York. And then Stories 2 is this idea of a sonic landscape. Instead of being in New York City, in my hometown, I take it to different territories, and I’m just trying to capture where I was at, how I was feeling, in these new places. There’s a song called ‘Pressure’ on Stories 2 that I wrote in L.A. I’m trying to capture that dusty desert feeling with the production and the lyrics there. And, of course, how I was feeling in the moment.”

In “Not Another DJ,” Bedouin said that, “I would guess that 90% of music that is currently being published uses some kind of electronic synthesis blended with real instruments or voice recorded with the microphone…so I guess the state would be in the majority.”
