Listening Post

Yaeji makes the everyday mundane look cool with a bike, dog and fisheye lens

A day in the life of the Bushwick producer and visual artist - listen to her trippy new track 'Therapy'

Yaeji is a producer and visual artist now based in Bushwick, NY. Kathy Yaeji Lee was born in Queens before spending parts of her childhood in Atlanta, Seoul and before now settling back in the States.

She invited Colin Groundwater to her studio in this month’s issue of Loud And Quiet – read the interview – but in the meantime, just before she heads to play a couple of US shows with SMERZ, she’s shared a new track ‘Therapy’.

It’s got the same heady vibe that made some of her earlier tracks like ‘Feel It Out’, and her recent self-titled EP on GODMODE, so magnetic.

There was the surreal sight of a bunch of pineapples whizzing around the screen in her ‘Feel It Out’ video. Now, with this new one, Yaeji takes a ride to work, walks her dog and generally gets on with just another average day… but somehow makes it look much more stylish than ours.

Support Loud And Quiet from £4 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £4 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£7 per month) and the rest of the world (£9 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
