Blake Sennett talks to Seattle Weekly about the new Elected album, Sun, Sun, Sun (out January 24th).

Did you plan on having this album come out on the same day as Jenny Lewis'?

Yeah, it was intentional. It seemed like a fun thing to do. We've always put out records together and, you know, we love each other, and we're still making music together [in Rilo Kiley], so it seemed like a nice symbolic gesture.

"We actually value a record that comes from different directions and has a different sound here and there, as long as it's cohesive, and we spent a lot of time trying to make it cohesive," wise man on campus Lannon says, sprawled in a lounger.

Author Andy Greenwald talks to Newcity Chicago about his debut novel, Miss Misery.

"The idea came for the book when I was procrastinating while writing `Nothing Feels Good,'" says Greenwald. "It was the summer of 2002, and it stayed with me. It was hard because no one wanted to take a chance on fiction from someone who didn't write it before. It was always a dream, but I never thought it was an attainable dream. In college I messed around in writing, took fiction, ripped off titles from Belle and Sebastian songs. I didn't think that I could write a novel, but I thought that I could write this novel, if that makes any sense."
