ARTIST INTERVIEW: SACHA MULLIN


Hey Sacha Mullin, super nice to have the chance to chat with you. First and foremost, what got you into music?

 

A lot of my family is musically inclined, so there’s that. But as a kid, I would go to the piano and make up songs before formally taking lessons, and dabbling helped me discover parts of my imagination. I was also fascinated as a child by oldies radio at nighttime, and by pieces from soundtracks, mostly from television. All of this culminated at some point of me needing to wield music for myself, to keep the wonder alive.

 

What’s the best decade for music?

 

It’s incredibly difficult to narrow it down to one decade, because everything from the 60s through the early 00s gave so much architecture to the music we have now. Since I’m kind of forced to pick one era, I suppose I’d say the 90s because it had a bit of everything, and thus, I’ve found my legal loophole.

 

What’s your favorite album from the prog rock genre?

 

Esperanza Spalding’s Emily’s D+Evolution. Fight me!

 

What’s the best advice you ever gave?

 

That I’ve given? Cover a pie in tin foil if the top crust is browning too soon in the oven.

 

How is your experience as an indie artist going?

 

I’m currently with an indie label, Dipterid Records, and they support me and my muse as-is, which is kind of unheard of in most of the industry In the past, I was doing everything on my own, and it’s so nice to have people in my court offering support for the music I want to make. I cherish that freedom. I’ve had a few failed deals, which fell apart for reasons beyond my control, some where the person that signs you leaves and you don’t have a champion, and others for budgetary reasons. But even when something isn’t your fault, it’s hard to not take it personally, and the dissolution can still put a lot of doubt in your mind as to whether or not you’re seen as “expendable.” So this time around, it’s felt like an overdue hug, and I can’t say enough good things about Dipterid, or where things may be headed. Knowing now that I’m with people who love my work and me as a person, that’s such a great feeling.


What’s your favorite artist with avant-garde traits?

 

Maybe the B-52’s? They’ve paved a whole career out of being themselves, and I love singing along to all three of their vocal styles. Also “Girl From Ipanema Goes to Greenland” is so much fun to belt out, I mean come on now.

 

Who is your inspiration?

 

My cat, Burrito. She’s a very good cat.

 

Do you consider yourself a music nerd?

 

Sure, particularly in the sense that I’m obsessed with knowing the names and credits of session musicians and supporting players. Once you know about people like Leland Sklar, Margaret Dorn, Cissy Houston, Liane de Lotbinière, Robbie Kondor, Henry Bowers-Broadbent, and so on, you start to see music as a much closer universe than you did before. These musicians are heroes to me. It’s really fascinating and beautiful to see how musicians like this can influence and shape the sounds of decades because of all the interconnectivity, overlap, skill, and expression. Plus following session musician credits can bring you to even more discoveries than you can imagine.

 

What’s the best movie of all time?

 

It’s between 1948’s The Red Shoes and 1991’s Basket Case 3: The Progeny.


 Do you agree with the Pigeon?

 

Birds of a feather flock together!


Review

Check out the new original album by Sacha Mullin: "Casino Wilderness Period"!

"Arraging Flowers" is introduced by addictive nocturnal synthesizers that promise to win you over in a big way! Underpinned by intense drumming, "Arranging Flowers" evolves into an extremely artistic melancholic song that bets on extravagant and gloomy performances behind the microphone complemented by dynamic alternative strings. Halfway through, we reach a piano bridge where we can find magnificent choirs that fuse estrogen and testosterone almost as if it were a romantic duet. In the atmosphere of this epic track where heroes burn at the stake, colors like red and black predominate. The melodic progressions are at the top of their game and the dangerous synergy that is established between these very talented independent artists.



The Pigeon added the new single to his Weekly Gems playlist on Spotify. You can check out the released music below. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow along so you can stay on top of future releases!
