The year 2005 marked a clear shift from the era of airwaves to the era of iPods. The digital landscape has been laid; the critical apparatus necessary to govern its borders is settling into place.

PM: I thought, what an amazing quote. Is the hipster scene up there too much?

AK: That's what music is in New York. It was kind of good going to Europe and the last couple weeks playing shows that are maybe a little bit smaller but kind of on par with what we play in the States, but people were really excited to see us. It's like, we know we don't have a huge following, but we're an important band to a small group of people and it's cool to connect with people like that, and just because you're not the Arcade Fire at the Bowery -- like oh my God, what happened, I couldn't get into the show, it's a huge fiasco! What, you're not on the guest list? You know, it's not always like that. Sometimes we can be not cool and still appeal to people. I guess it's an important thing to remember that it's really hard living in New York. I'm sure you can appreciate this as well.
