Voxtrot lead singer Ramesh Srivastava talks to the Cal State Long Beach Daily 49er about the band's online fame.

Eventually, music websites such as the indie behemoth Pitchfork Media began to spread the word about Voxtrot and what it had to offer.

"It was nice and I was flattered, but I don't read [Pitchfork] that much," he said. "I used to read blogs all the time, but I just don't care anymore. To me, there isn't any magic in it. I would much rather prefer to create or recreate the zeitgeist of something rather than just reading about it or communicating about it on the Internet because it's too much in the here and now. It's too focused on constant, up-to-date reporting, as opposed to just being able to enjoy something at face value."

The Village Voice's Sound of the City blog reviews the Mountain Goats' recent NYU performance.

‘Nuff said though; the new one, due next year, is called Heretic Pride, which is probably all the summary re: Darnielle’s POV necessary. The song “Heretic Pride,” which he previewed last night, is a banger – “old-school jams” is how he described the new record; fanboys take note – and hearing it was only one of many moments that exposed the whole split in the band’s catalogue for what it is—notional not actual.

The Christian Science Monitor and Washington City Paper list their favorite fiction books of 2007.

The Christian Science Monitor also lists its favorite memoirs, thrillers, history, short fiction and essays, and biographies.
