Wake Bake Skate Estate: At Home With FIDLAR
The L.A. punks show SPIN where they sleep, smoke dope, and blast Sleep's 'Dopesmoker'
You can almost picture FIDLAR’s house merely by scanning the song titles on their self-titled debut album — “Stoked & Broke,” “Black Out Stout,” “Paycheck,” “Wait for the Man.” Their group pad in L.A.’s Highland Park neighborood — which is located on the city’s Northeast side — is as you might expect: beds in odd places, photos taped to the walls, weed stuffed in random containers. But it’s also hyper-personal, and mementos like cheap, marked-up guitars lie about. The band gave us a guided tour, and also brought SPIN inside their soundproof live room, where songs are recorded, and where… other things also happen.
