Tallest Trees, who recently starred in our Next BIG Nashville Mini Documentary and are also featured in the new Nashville-centric Nylon Magazine spread, had much more to say about music in Music City than we had room for in our festival re-cap video. In the complete interview below, Thomas Samuel and Dabney Morris discuss how electronic music has emerged organically in Nashville from its garage-rock roots, citing similar bands like Spiderfriends and Fly Golden Eagle (both of whom performed at NBN 2010), the challenges of performing electronic music, and how they sometimes miss just playing “in the pocket” bass and drums in bar rock bands.
