A great little Q&A with Mark Kozelek, courtesy of Eye magazine. Unfortunately, no questions about the future for Kozelek. It's nice to know that the Red House Painters are still together, but I'm just as interested in finding out about solo albums, new Sun Kill Moon albums, or whatever. Very sad I won't be at the show tomorrow night, but am sure it will be amazing.

There is a new Múm album due out in April, as reported in Pitchfork. The album has already leaked online, and I'm still not sure what I think of it. The album seems to lean more towards the darker sounds of Sigur Ros, and the vocals on this album (which I assume are still supplied by Gyða Valtýsdóttir and Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir) reminded me WAY too much of young Taylor Momsen singing "Where Are You Christmas" in How the Grinch Stole Christmas. And no, that's not a compliment.

A couple of great album reviews have recently popped up, and are definitely worth checking out. Dave Queen offers up hilarious anecdotes to review the A.M.'s s/t album, and Pitchforkmedia's Nick Sylvester uses the artistic talents of Farley Katz to slam Daft Club, Daft Punk's remix album. [Note to Pitchfork: in the future, more pictures, less text!]
