A fantastic double xl episode of No Effects this week with god in chief of the GODMODE Squad, Nick Sylvester.
Before helming his own record label / management / production company GODMODE and producing albums for Shamir, Deerhoof and more, Nick was a teenage trumpet player performing at weddings and bar mitzvahs in Philadelphia. After that, he was a Harvard kid writing snarky album reviews for Pitchfork. After that, he was a writer for the Colbert Report for 4 years. After that, he started a muscular brooklyn rock band called Mr. Dream. And now, he is putting it all together in a really unique way at GODMODE.
He's a true one-of-a-kinder and I was very happy to talk to him about all that and more.
