Free Music For Fans of Lagoon Band
During this holiday season, twitter musicians have united to bring you free music. No strings attached. So enjoy a short interview with these great indie musicians, and then download to your heart’s content!
Meet Lagoon Band!
Lagoon is an indie-rock band that formed in 2003 in Tucson, Arizona and currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts. (And apparently the band smells like cookies.)
David – plays guitars, sings and is the band’s principal songwriter
Patrick – plays guitars and ebow and has an amp called “the toaster”
Marisa – plays the drums… but don’t touch her drums
Jake – plays bass and is the band’s “mouth”
The band has recorded two full length albums (“Graduation” 2005 and “Dose” 2007) and is currently working on their third album due for a planned release late 2010. Lagoon moved from Tucson, Arizona to Providence, Rhode Island summer of 2007 and then to Boston summer of 2008. Jake joined the band Summer of 2008 replacing longtime Lagoon bassist Woodie Polk. Jake and Marisa are siblings. Patrick and Marisa were once High School Sweethearts. This is David’s 3rd band, Jake’s second and Pat and Marisa’s first. All band members are native to Arizona except David–he was born in Milwaukee. All band members graduated from the University of Arizona, except David–he graduated from the University of Georgia. Lagoon is close to being vegetarian. Pat said “don’t mention stupid stuff like our jobs”. So we won’t.

Things you did not know about Lagoon Band!
1. Name your favorite reindeer and why?
I liked Nixon until Palin shot him =(
2. What is you favorite Christmas Song?
“I’ll be home for Christmas” – it’s actually very depressing, you see the narrator isn’t talking about physically coming home, he (or she) is longing for the past
3. Name the top 5 things on your Christmas wish list?
All expensive music gear I won’t get. Some tools. A couple of candy bars. A latte with a splash of Egg Nog. A softball glove.
4. Where can we find your tour dates?
Our tour dates are at www.lagoononline.com
5. Where can we buy more of your music?
iTunes, Amazon, etc
6. What artist are you compared to?
Kenny Loggins, Louis Armstrong, Justin Bieber
7. What genre does your music fall into?
Marching Band, Traditional Polka, Speed Metal
8. Who inspired you to be a musician?
Hmmmm. I’ve been playing an instrument since I was a very small child. It was just innate. In other words, I was born to be broke.
9. Name your best moments in 2010.
Finishing the new album, and a few really awesome shows.
10. What do you look forward to the most in 2011?
Not getting hit by a bus. Or getting hit by a bus either one.
11. What do you want us to know about you?
Meh, the details of my life are quite inconsequential.
12. Are you on Santa’s naughty or nice list?
Probably neither. I’m on Santa’s purgatory list. See, I’ve been very neutral this year; balancing all my naughty acts with nice ones. Example: I was naughty and drank too many martinis and made my wife a quesadilla with cinnamon and fake meat in it. So I then had to be nice and build a new studio for the band. It all evens out.
