Shorties (Recommended Podcasts for Poetry Lovers, Musicians Who Would Make Great Novelists, and more)

Book Riot recommended podcasts for poetry lovers.

Bob Boilen listed musicians who would make great novelists at Literary Hub.

The Rumpus interviewed author Idra Novey.

The band Mothers played a Tiny Desk Concert.

The Salt interviewed Krishnendu Ray about his new book The Ethnic Restaurateur.

Each new large wave of immigration has remade American cuisine for the better, making it "more creative and rich," Rays says. He says we're currently going through another culinary transformation, driven by the easing of immigration rules in 1965 that resulted in a large influx of immigrants from Asia and Latin America.

Pitchfork profiled Greta Kline, aka singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos.

Kline's songs are concise; most last less than two minutes. They are pop miniatures full of humor and grace, and they often show their own process, inviting unlikely connections to conceptual art in a way that reminds me of her cheeky New York City forebears, the Ramones.

Padma Lakshmi discussed her favorite books at The Week.

Pitchfork mapped the history of EDM.

Electric Literature interviewed author Chris Bachelder.

Stream a new Ladyhawke song.

Threadless interviewed cartoonist Julia Wertz.

The A.V. Club interviewed Don Cheadle about his Miles Davis biopic.

Vol. 1 Brooklyn shared a new short story by Kevin Clouther.

Stream Xiu Xiu's cover of "Into the Night" from the Twin Peaks soundtrack.

The A.V. Club interviewed author Jack Pendarvis.

Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers remembered Merle Haggard at The Record.

Paste listed essential songs by Haggard.
