DC on the Slow Move

A great long and thoughtful interview with David Berman on Pitchfork today. He sounds focussed. No plans for poetry, but the way he describes the lyrics for the new album makes it sound like a short story collection. Here is a great quote.


"Sometimes I notice that people nowadays seem to build their own context, whatever they want it to be. I see someone like Devendra Banhart, and to me it's fascinating that he's able to create a context in which the scene in Animal House where the folk singer's bashed over the head with a guitar never happened. In his context, not all of America saw that movie, laughed, and agreed that folk music was annoying"
