Australian internet radio host Karen Leng interviewed Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval and David Roback in ABC Sydney’s radio studios. Double J internet radio is owned by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corp.), Australia’s public broadcaster.
Mazzy Star was in Australia playing shows on three consecutive nights at the Sydney Opera House, June 11, 12, and 13, 2018 for the annual Vivid Sydney Festival.
With the music edited out, the interview is now 28 minutes long. The original show was 1-hour. The host played several songs she chose and played prior to the interview portion. Those songs were: “Fade Into You” (Mazzy Star cover by J Mascis), “I Look Around” by Rain Parade (David Roback’s early 1980s band),and “Flowers in December” by Mazzy Star. During the interview and at its end the host played some more studio recordings.Those were: “Halah” by Mazzy Star, “Supernova” by Opal, “Disappear” by Mazzy Star, and “So Tonight That I Might See” (original 1993 version) by Mazzy Star. I edited out the music and left the interview portions intact and complete.
