Dapper Lad Interview, Album Details
Monrovia Renaissance: I understand you just returned from a month-long tour in the OC. How does it feel to be back in Monrovia?
Dapper Lad: It's absolutely bittersweet, I must say. I miss the people. Real genuine people.
MR: Now, tell us about the new album. Is it true that No Name had to become an American Apparel model to support your music?
DL: Yeah, I made him do it. It's not at all what you would think, either, not at all glamourous. It's something I'm not very proud of, but I believe that the ends justify the means one hundred percent of the time. Plus the LP is going to be absolutely stunning.
MR: Everyone is curious about how this album will sound since JPL is known to take on a wide array of musical styles.
DL: Oh, I wouldn't say that. If you could somehow listen to a recording of every single show we've ever done, you would know that we haven't changed that much. In fact, I believe we've gotten more the same, which is all any group wants.
MR: Well, that about wraps up our interview, is there anything at all you could tell us about the new album?
DL: Simply everything I've already said. Wonderful people, the OC, not at all what you would expect, except that it's exactly the same.
MR: If you had to sum up the feeling of the new album in one word, what would it be?
DL: I'm afraid I can't, actually. That would really go against my artistic instincts.
Jr. Planet League will be out in the future on Public Records.
