Shorties

The Arcade Fire perform on the children's show, Pancake Mountain (Quicktime link).

Paul Westerberg is interviewed by LA Weekly, and discusses the live Replacements experience. "Anyone who had seen us at least three times probably had a glimpse of what we were capable of. My only fault was the ones who saw us but the one time in Houston when we couldn’t stand up. The next night we knocked ’em dead. You have to see two or three. Two or three were the prerequisite to see what sort of shape we were in, and how ready we were to blow the roof off."

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers is interviewed. "We want to be one of those bands that people are into but also has written some great songs. And radio is changing. The Strokes and the White Stripes have all done a very good job. But they haven't broken the doors open."

Wilco's Jeff Tweedy talks to the Charlotte Observer. "Wilco has never been a singles band. A lot of times with (the band's former record label) Reprise, when they'd pick a song out to be a single, it would feel really lonely. It wouldn't seem to make as much sense, 'cause any one song off of any one record doesn't feel like the whole record."

Pitchfork lists US and European tourdates for Joanna Newsom. (Don't tell my wife, but I'm thinking of quitting my job and becoming a groupie).

Ted Leo talks to the Contra Costa Times. "My wife and I are both going to be 35 this year. If we're going to have a family, the window is closing. Things are amazing right now, and I can justify keeping things going. But there's just so many bands out there. And since I've decided not to go the route of a bigger label and radio hits and all that, (quitting) is something I'm going to have to face."

Aversion loves the new Of Montreal disc, The Sunlandic Twins.
