The New Pornographers' Carl Newman talks to Popmatters.

"I'm really tired of that supergroup label, and I wish people would stop using it," Newman said. "None of us were known at all outside of Canada -- I just don't think it's accurate. And then I have to deal with writers asking how I balance the New Pornographers with Zumpano, and I have to tell them that Zumpano has been broken up for six years. People often don't do very good research when they do these things."

"My ambitions aren't so muscle-y. They're not in a rush," said Feist. "I wanna make 10 more albums, or 20 more albums, and I don't care if this one necessarily makes any mark. All I want it to do is inch me forward so when I make my next one, I don't have to start from scratch again."

Wolf Parade talks to Paste.

Raymond Raposa of Castanets talks to Chartattack.

"It’s kind of important for me to have my friends on the record — even if they’re barely there. That’s what happened with the last one, where if I’m recording myself and a couple of good friends doing something, it’s important for me to have them around in the final thing."
