From the Eastsport Cafe at Lollapalooza ’08: Louis XIV
Jason Hill reminisces about his band's early days, and about his search for new, intriguing talent.
Louis XIV has a bit of history with SPIN. Our good pal and former co-worker Sarah “Ultragrrrl” Lewitinn was one of the first people in New York to promote the band, and she actually put out a handmade Louis XIV single on her own Stolen Transmission label, often staying in the office late to make the hand-stenciled paper CD sleeves. So it was very cool to see the band’s frontman Jason Hill in our Lollapalooza crib and talk about both his band’s past and future, which might include some studio assistance for the next big band.
