AP.net Interview: Counting Crows

Posted by - 12:17 PM on 09/02/14
Counting Crows have an excellent new album out today and we have a special interview with Adam Duritz talking about it. Check it out here.
I donít think anyone knows what sells records. There is literally no one who thought our first record was going to sell that many. Thereís no way. Nobody did. It just happens sometimes. You canít manipulate popular culture. Well, I guess sometimes you can, but weíre not in that business. The smartest thing we always seemed to do was do what we wanted to do, since thatís what got us there in the first place. Our best records were always going to be made by us, so we just made the records we wanted to make. Thereís a certain truth in that that bears out to your audience, too, and to the people watching you.

Awesome, thanks for this. New album is really really good. Some of the more uptempo ones like Dislocation have an energy I've been missing since recovering te Satelites.

I thought it was awesome when he name-dropped absolutepunk during the Somewhere Under Wonderland LIVE broadcast on Yahoo. Even better seeing the interview here.

He was talking about how he thought they were done as a band after Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings, and that he realized he preferred talking to websites like absolutepunk (he named several, but it was the first one he mentioned) than with the traditional media publications. It was basically his lead in to talking about the Outlaw Roadshow, which he more or less credited with helping to reinvigorate his love for making music.

Wow. One of the most artistic and well-thought albums of the year (although I am strongly biased) gets a paragraph? No justification for the 3 stars.

Rolling Stone has the worst album review section of any music publication.
