Podcast Interview with Janis

Music Energy (+clipping path, XXL)Do male feminist exist? Of course they do! Eric Eliacin (aka Street Saint) is the host of an progressive podcast called Romeo And… It tackles issues such as masculinity, feminism, gender equality and the media. Our Janis was asked to give her two cents on these important topics and share how Edipus wants to do its part too.

Listen here.

You saw them in the video – but what do we really know about the strategists behind Edipus Concert? That’s where we come in.

We recently sat down with the two powerhouses and asked them some really tough questions. Who do they prefer: Lady GaGa or Beyoncé? Are they coffee addicts or tea sippers? What’s their astrological sign?

Luckily these women are always on their toes and weren’t the least bit intimidated by our ruthless albeit feckless inquisition.

An Interpreter (Too bad I can’t speak another language fluently).

I only speak “broken” Spanish

A little teapot.  I love my tea!

Lady GaGa or Beyonce?
Lady GaGa.

Fall. I love my warm sweaters and blankets.

Nope.  I tried learning to play the piano once…didn’t get past learning Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Paris.  I would visit every year and never get tired of seeing it.

‘Fly me to the moon’ or ‘no thanks, I like Earth’?
Fly me to the moon.  I need to get away from it all.

As by Stevie Wonder.  Everything by Stevie puts me in a good mood, but this song is my favorite.

West Coast, of course.  I’ve traveled the country and nothing beats the West.

My gut says introvert, but I do get energized by other people, so maybe I’m an extrovert, too.

I’d love to give songwriting a try. In fact, I wrote a couple when I was 15.

I need my coffee! First thing. Strong.

Lady GaGa or Beyonce?
Gaga — I love how she’s evolved over the years.

I love them all for different reasons. I guess I like winter the least.

Yes, piano and some very basic guitar.

Perfect vacation destination?
I have always wanted to visit Ireland and Italy… but I also prefer road trips to cool spots here in California!

Fly me to the moon! Why not??

Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra

West Coast all the way! East Coast is fun to visit 🙂

 

 

Years & Years

We have a serious problem. We love these guys so much that instead of posting a sound bite of their single, Real, we ask that you watch them at work so you can experience the complete package and vibe on it properly.

Soulful Electronica is how they’re classified to the public but to us they are simply great artists.

Enjoy.

Beach time

IMAG0163

When life gets too hard and tries to force us to act civalized, we Californians rebel by hitting the beach. Here’s a snippet into what we here at Edipus are bopping are heads to as we race to relax and re-center ourselves from the madness.

If you don’t live in Cali or even by the ocean, we suggest that you eat a doughnut. It’s sort of the equivalent.
