Read a lengthy interview with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver over on Pitchfork now. He talks about the new album, the leak, the writing process, his various other projects and much more.
From The interview"Calgary" really feels like an accomplishment to me. It has a form, a repetitive idea, and a good cadence. I really like the opening line: "Don't you cherish me to sleep." There's that whole thing that happens in relationships-- you can love someone but, as soon as they stop loving you so unconditionally that they stop being themselves, it can be so dangerous.

Aaron Scott (Attica! Attica!) recently wrote about sexism in the scene for the series of essays posted on I Live Sweat here.
From the ArticleI donít want to accuse the punk scene of being more sexist than any other male-dominated sector of American culture. But I do want to hold it accountable for being pathetically average in its sexism.

Since releasing their album in February, The Civil Wars have sold 104,000 copies of their record, 79% being digital. Did I forget to mention that this was all done without the backing of a label? Do you think this is the way of the future or a rare occasion? No matter what you think, this is an exciting time to be in music.

InterviewIím going to mention smoking weed, and cigarettes, and drinking and Iím going to talk about hating people. Thereís a lot of stuff in my life; I lost my dad when I was eight years old and Iíve been coping with it from then until I was fourteen. In middle school and going into high school I got over it.
