Meet Sir Froderick

We recently caught up and cracked up with the dude they call Sir Froderick for a little Q & A about his Heartaches & Beatbreaks project coming out on Recordbreakin July 13.  

Ok so where did your name come from?  It’s pretty unforgettable. 

When I had my big afro my friends said I looked like Frederick Douglas.  Then I saw that movie Young Frankenstein by Mel Brooks and i was like “well do you also say Frooooderick?”  It stuck after that.

LOL.  What vibe/s would you associate with Heartaches & Beatbreaks?  Any recommended activities to partake in while listening to your new project?

It’s real laid back sound that you roll a “L” to and think about that special someone…futuresex/lovesounds..lol

What sounds inspire you?

The sounds of sweet nothings being whispered in my ear….

Do you have any collaborations in the making?

Be on the lookout for Love Muscle (Sir Froderick & Lisa Preston) yuuuum!

What are you looking forward to?

People listening and enjoying the album and look forward to hearing more from Sir Froderick…I gotta lotta love to give.

Toro y Moi ♥

What is chillwave you ask?  I’m not sure if I can quite put it into words, but your boy Chazwick Bundick (gnarly name) AKA Toro y Moi can definitely put it into sound.  Hailing from all places…South Carolina? Really?  Damn skippy.  Let’s just say it’s a little bit of 80s electronica spawn rooted in generation Y psychedelia, filtered down for all of your nostalgic needs and sprinkled in audible THC. 

Oh, remember the super rad ambient sounds of Washed Out which we raved about not too long ago?  Surprise, surprise, these two cats have been known to musically collab on a frequent basis.  AWESOME!  So, now that your brain has unwound itself, had a glass of wine and undone the metaphorical zipper on your Thanksgiving Day pants, I suggest you peep the new project Leave Everywhere, vibe, enjoy and chilllll… - Lady J
