Marc "Moose" Moder: Hi Kim. We know Andy Butler as being the mastermind of the band, but what do you consider your role in Hercules + Love Affair to be?
Kim Ann Foxman: I am a vocalist and permanent member of the band. The first album was really a studio project that took Andy a long time to complete. Now there is a second album coming out, and there is an exciting new line up for this record and everyone that is touring is also on the album.
I had been working with Andy for years before Hercules and Love Affair was born. We have a great working relationship. Now Andy also has a record label called Mr. Intl. I am a solo artist on his label. Andy is producing a whole bunch of great things.
M: You have an EP out on Beatport called Creature/What You Need, and both are listed elsewhere as Kim Ann Foxman and Andrew Butler. Was there ever talk of these being H+LA tracks since you're both on them?
KA: They are not Hercules and Love Affair Songs, but they are written by both myself and Andrew Butler. They are songs for my solo project. So Andy is helping me produce my songs; it's all geared towards my vision. He is really helping me facilitate that and make it sound amazing. He is my producer. Lucky me!
M: It sounds like you do some crate digging. Where's your favorite place to shop for rare vinyl?
KA: Yes I do lots of crate digging. Well, I used to a lot. I used to go to The Thing in Greenpoint (Brooklyn) and score lots of rad music. Now I usually just go to discogs.com . If you know what you want, then it's a great place to find it, and also discover new stuff too.
