Dreamy duo Purity Ring recently traveled to Vancouver, B.C. and, sure enough, they ran into Nardwuar the Human Serviette. What ensued was a nearly 12-minute interview that touches on their love for the Notorious B.I.G., their hometown of Edmonton and all the bands from there, some hilarious vinyl artwork, and so much more. In case you're not familiar with these two, let this serve as your introduction. Watch the clip below.

After his epic 46 minute discussion with Questlove, Nardwuar is back with another interview, this time with electro-indie duo Purity Ring. Together they talk about notable Edmonton music, that time Megan slept with a Kangaroo and a crazy story about Megan's brothers getting rescued at sea. Watch the full interview above.
Make the best use out of the next 46 minutes by tuning into this incredible conversation between Nardwuar the Human Serviette and Questlove (of The Roots, D'Angelo, Jimmy Fallon, et. al). The two Scholars of Modern Music discuss Philadelphia and its graffiti culture, influential radio DJ Jocko Henderson, Stevie Wonder's cameo on The Cosby Show , Mel Brooks and Rodney Dangerfield as rap pioneers, and who Questlove considers to be the first true emcee. You'll likely learn a thing or 10. Plus, if you take a sip every time Questlove laughs, you're in for a pretty fun [...]
Questlove crosses the border to "Vancouver British Columbia Canada" and gets greeted by Nardwuar. The results create what may be one of the longest interviews done by Nardwuar since it crosses the 45-minute mark. But this is Questlove we're talking about. If there's anyone as eccentric and knowledge about music and musicians as Nardwuar is that person would be The Roots' drummer. The conversations drifts as they cover a wide spectrum of topics from music, personal life and more but one the peaks comes as Quest explains how Hawaiian Punch once got him in a [...]
Several years back, Nardwuar linked up with Questlove for the kind of interview that, well, only the Human Serviette can pull off. But sure enough, he topped that interview with yet another epic, ridiculously long interview with Questo. This thing runs 46 minutes (!) and is worth every second of your time. How do I know this? Nardwuar goes with the Questo-described "sucker punch" right off the jump. Grab a few drinks and enjoy.
Recent Mercury Prize winners ALT-J recently stopped off in Vancouver. And what happens when you're a musicians on tour in Vancouver? You get interviewed by journalism's greatest information spelunker Nardwuar. Watch the band sing an a cappella version of Drive theme song "Real Hero" by College and learn some minutia about the group that you probably wouldn't have otherwise below. Read More...
Nardwuar 's latest interview is with Miami rapper-producer/Raider Klan leader SpaceGhostPurrp . Their nearly 12-minute conversation centers on topics like strippers and strip clubs, the Poison Clan, Swedish metal group Meshuggah, and much, much more. It's a must watch, like every other interview held by the Human Serviette, and you can check it out right now below . [ via ]
Her name is Kitty Pryde. I mean, Kitty. And, today, Nardwuar finds out a bit more about her. Like how she likes punk t-shirts, how she used to have a thing for Ska, and how she made out with a dude who looked like Obi-Wan Kenobi after drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade. I honestly haven't listened to much of this girl's music, but the interview that ensues is rather hysterical. Check it out below.
While we were served with a few interviews of people other than rappers, Nardwuar strikes back with a new video featuring Pusha T . While Pusha appears to be too cool for school, he actually comes pretty clean on this interview with Nardwuar. In fact, we find out a ton about his musical upbringing, family life and more. One of the most interesting stories revealed regards the breaking of "Grindin'", and how drug dealers helped bring it to the forefront. Watch the interview below.
Today the Internet's two biggest music nerds clash together for one absurd piece of YouTube programming. At SXSW, Nardwuar got to throw some questions at Anthony Fantano of the Needle Drop. Nard was able to dig up some rather interesting information about Fantano, including his Connecticut heritage and how he has been involved with a number of bands himself. What you begin to find out is that these two have a lot more in common than what you might expect. Anyway, I'm going to stop talking and let you watch the interview below.
