Here is a full transcript of the interview:

Sisters Emerge from Death By Audio With Noisy New Album

By: Corey Tate July 27, 2010

Sisters is a lo-fi, noisy, garage-like duo that tries to make music that sounds much larger than what you think could be possible by two people.

Now they've graduated to a release on Narnack Records, titled Ghost Fits, due ot on September 28th. It was recorded at Civil Defense studios in Brooklyn by Jeremy Scott (Vivian Girls, These are Powers, Hollowpaw, Frankie Rose and the Outs).

Check out the songs "Sky" and "Highway Scratch" from their upcoming album Ghost Fits. The songs start out as seemingly straight-forward pop songs, before wandering off of the pop map in a fury of noise and cacophony.

"Wanting to create as big of a noise as possible with just guitars and drums, Aaron started playing his guitar through two amps, augmenting the monster sound he created with pedal-based loops. Upping the ante, Matt built a custom analogue drum synth into his kick drum. Running this feed through effects in real time allowed him to get a wholly unique sound out of his kit, completing the Sisters' one-of-a-kind, 21st Century alt-rock sonic experience," reads the band's bio.

Sisters is the brain child of Aaron Pfannebecker (vocals / guitar) and Matt Conboy (drums / keyboards). They take cues from inspirations like Pixies, Pavement, Nirvana, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth; then they combine that with their role in Death by Audio, a venue/collective/rehearsal space/guitar pedal factory in New York.

Matt is one of the founders of Death by Audio, and Sisters is part of that collective. They got their start by playing impromptu shows there.

"We would have these 'sneak attacks' as we called them, where we would set up really quick in between bands in the hallway or doorway and just play five or six songs. We did that for awhile, then eventually people asked us to play," said Aaron.

Cartoon of the Day

Neckbeard ringleader and professional illustrator, Joe Jurewicz drew this cartoon. He drew another one just like this where Muddy Waters goes up to the counter and asks for blue coffee, but Joe spilled coffee on it. And then a shark ate it. Oh well.

Malcolm Alchemy writes massive Reception review

A tight E-bro from way back has written the first review of Coin Under Tongue's Reception. Malcolm Alchemy has strung together so many choice words that attempting to quote from it would be a crime against flow. His Tumblr is basically a pretty cool virtual cork board, so go with the scroll when you click on through.

Go see this movie before someone starts talking about it at a bar and ruins the whole thing. Don't go look it up on IMDB or read any reviews. Just chill OUT. Make sure you have some friends with you because you'll want to argue about it later.

Starring Releases "July" Video

While all of you gluttonous hippies spent the Fourth Of July sipping on margaritas and grilling tofu steaks, Starring was busy with a bbq of their own - complete with rabbit masks, chainsaws, and lots of blood. Watch the mayhem below:

We spent the early hours of yesterday's meltdown within the cool confines of the DBA loft putting together mailers containing the new Coin Under Tongue CD. They say you have to get these out a month before the "Release Date" so people have time to put it "in the next issue" - but is this theory even relevant anymore? Who knows? We screenprinted these boxes and then went to Annie's (Au Revoir Simone) birthday/ 4th of July backyard party jam. Some people climbed on the roof for a glimpse of the fireworks, which were a little hard to see this year because THEY moved them to the west side of Manhattan.
