Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio (aka Baio) is releasing his debut solo album this week, The Names, and we talked with him about it here.
What was very exciting about making this record was realizing that nobody was particularly waiting for it. No one was particularly excited for it, but I knew I wanted to do it. I knew I had to do it, and that was very freeing for me. If I had made something and didn’t like it, didn’t think it was worthwhile to put out into the world, I just would have deleted it from my hard drive.

Annie Clark (St. Vincent) recently reviewed Arcade Fire's latest album, Reflektor, for The Talkhouse - the same site that featured the late Lou Reed raving over Yeezus and Ezra Koenig's (Vampire Weekend) goofy take on Nothing Was The Same.
The Arcade Fire have released an album that elucidates our constant psychic vacillation between uber-connection and utter disconnection. They ask you to be aware of your fractured attention span/psyche/in touch with your humanity. Arcade Fire so mercifully avoid the Nuremberg-rock cliches ("Hey!") in favor of sleaze, anxiety, and pathos that you can dance to.
