    The A Perfect Circle co-founder tell us how he used Fiona Apple’s Tidal and Radiohead’s OK Computer as benchmarks for 2000’s Mer de Noms. He also divulges how he found the first two albums from The Cars as well as early music from The B-52’s as his guides for this newest creation.

    Howerdel reflects on how his listening to The Dead Kennedys is akin to his children’s taste for Soundcloud trap, the impact that The Cure’s Pornography had on his coming-of-age, and his recent remixes of songs from Puscifer and Our Lady Peace.
