In an issue full of spectacular music interviews, our sit down with Avan Lava was lot of fun. The NYC band has recently released its debut album Vapors, made entirely with borrowed equipment and recorded in a church basement. Actually, we think the Avan Lava album would sound great played in a cathedral. While you could blandly categorize the album as electro-pop, Avan Lava plays their style of it with more soul and ambiant grandeur than most. Here's a few questions that didn't make it into the magazine, but you can check it out here to get a little taste.
