Sufjan makes me feel less guilty

So it seems like every time I say I'm not going to post for a while I end up posting. Darn.

Back to Sufjan Stevens...from his Pitchfork interview:

"Pitchfork: How do you feel about that in terms of your own material? Say if someone took "Chicago" and changed the lyrics to be more political?
Sufjan: It's definitely not public domain. I have a publisher and I make money from the publishing of the songs. That's a big part of an income, so I'm not going to pretend that I'm that socialistic about my music. But I'm not so possessive about it that I would sue anyone who misused it. If someone were to sample my work, I would have a hard time seeking payment for that. I don't even have a problem with people illegally downloading that stuff.
Pitchfork: Not at all?
Sufjan: Not really. I don't need to be selling hundreds of thousands of records to have a career. It doesn't really hinder me."

.....YEEESSSS [Sufjan Stevens - The Mistress Witch from McClure (or, The Mind That Knows Itself) which is discussed at some length in the interview]
...and songwriting is is "Plan B"...see the end of the interview

Hyping other blogs...

  • post on Bell X1...Damien Rice's band (with a number of downloads)
  • Giant Drag @ Criminal Records (downloads included)
  • review of Elefant's new album (downloads included)
  • 29 covers of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" I'm not a big Joy Division fan...but that's pretty impressive...
  • So I like Josh Rouse. Do you like Josh Rouse? These downloads will make you like Josh Rouse
  • so EVERYONE and their monkey's uncle has been posting about Nouvelle Vague lately, and I'm just going to link to another post because I'm such a rebel...
