Shorties (The New Brooklyn Novel, A Profile of Composer Gabriel Kahane, and more)

Salon examined "the new Brooklyn novel."

Los Angeles Magazine profiled singer-songwriter and composer Gabriel Kahane.

"I've always had a romantic attachment to buildings and the stories that live in them," says Venice-born singer songwriter and composer Gabriel Kahane, whose 2007 concert piece Craigslistlieder, based on actual Craigslist ads, brought him into the spotlight. His third and latest album The Ambassador, which came out in early June, is a chamber-music-meets-contemplative-folk-rock hybrid inspired by Los Angeles and its architecture.

Full Stop and Tin House interviewed author Kate Zambreno.

The band First Aid Kit listed country artists who have influenced them at Rolling Stone.

Authors Porochista Khakpour and John Dermot Woods discussed fairy tales at Gigantic.

The Guardian readers listed the best music of 2014 so far.

The New York Times profiled author Edan Lepucki.

Drowned in Sound profiled the band Hospitality.

Ted Thompson detailed the finances behind selling his debut novel at Salon.

The New Yorker goes behind the scenes with Rihanna's songwriting team.

Author Stuart Dybek discussed his favorite books at The Week.
