Erin McKeown takes drum loops from the Internet. I use it for research. One thing I was surprised to learn while researching McKeown was that when people include her on mix-tapes, they tend not to group her with Dar Williams, Jess Klein or any of the other usual suspects, but with Le Tigre, Rilo Kiley, Tegan and Sara, and Sleater-Kinney.

"That's really cool. That means my evil plan is working. Because I don't want to be in the company of Dar Williams or Jess Klein. And that's not anything to do with them, because they are both friends of mine; it's just in terms of how I see my music, so that makes me very happy, it's very exciting to me. Especially as those are of four of my favourite bands."
