Meet Tyler, 23 years old from Los Angeles.
“At the time, I had just moved to NYC to attend school and I was a big fan of NY cool kid fashion designer Alexander Wang. I created the playlist to function as an archive of his fashion show soundtracks and as an incubator for the Alexander Wang lifestyle”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Radiohead's album In Rainbows. Especially "House of Cards" and "Reckoner".
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Music--for many reasons. Lyrics/words are often too literal and can't be as widely relatable as music, or sound. Sound transcends language and when used methodically, it can dramatically engage emotions, shift perspective, and even heal.
Favorite artist? Top 5?
Radiohead, Sade, Mr Twin Sister, Sam Smith, Nightmares On Wax
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive) and why?
Thom Yorke, because his knowledge of music/sound allows him cut through the crap to create highly-diverse, non-traditional, meticulous, emotional work that shifts my perspective unlike any other.
Coachella 2019. Best set was Nocturnal Sunshine (Maya Jane Cole's newest project) hands down.
