Roast ’em up real nice: Sound Bites interviews Ski Lodge

This Sunday is the final installment of this year’s Sound Bites Series and we’re closing things with a doozy of a band: Brooklyn’s Ski Lodge. Mixing a dash of The Smiths’ swagger with more wordly influences, the band made a splash last year with their debut EP and will release their debut full-length for Dovecote Records sometime in the very near future. The band were also picked as one of the “8 NYC Bands You Need to Hear” in The L Magazine’s annual music issue and we couldn’t agree more. Here’s a sample:

Details: The Sound Bites series is a free show, as always, and I DJ at 2PM with the band on at 3PM sharp! The Stage is set up on Beekman just off South Street down by the seaport. Come down! (There may even be beer for sale this week!) Main Lodge resident Andrew Marr was nice enough to answer some food-related questions for us:

You’ll be playing at the Fulton Stall markets. What’s your favorite vegetable? And why.
Brussels sprouts, because you can roast em up real nice.

What’s your least favorite and why?
Mushrooms, i just don’t get why they have to be the way they are.  [Keep trying, they’re awesome. – Ed]

You’ve been busy making your debut album. Did any particular food fuel it’s making?
Goldfish get snacked on a lot

Has food ever influenced your songwriting?
Food has probably had a negative influence on my songwriting, because after every meal I eat I then want to do absolutely nothing for an open ended amount of time.

Any good food-related band anecdotes?
Whenever we go out to eat as a band (bassist) Jared lists every restaurant within a 5 mile radius as an option for us to eat at.

Who is the best cook in the band? (And what’s their specialty?) Who is the finickiest eater? Do you often eat together as a band?
I’m gonna say that I (Andrew) am the best cook. I have never eaten anything the others have made but my parents taught me to cook pretty well. I don’t think any of us are very finicky, but yea we usually eat together when we play a show.

What’s your favorite local restaurants?
We all love Meatball Shop and M Shanghai

What’s your go-to hangover food?
Yogurt smoothies and pancakes

What food would you imagine Ski Lodge’s music being paired with?
A nice warm apple fritter with hot coffee to drink
