Five days! Many items! A look at the last week at Sound of the City is below.
We chatted with Mike Watt about being on crutches, taking naps, and “the Neutral Milk guy.”
We spoke to the incarcerated Max B about his new album.
We watched as wine and hip-hop came together on YouTube.
We spoke to Rhett Miller about Chili’s, Bob Dylan, and marriage proposals.
We took notice of the slimmed-down Grammys.
We premiered a dizzying new track by Brooklyn’s Liturgy, who are into leaving the black metal scene behind.
(I’d probably be remiss if I didn’t take the opportunity afforded by all these farewells to introduce myself, by the way. I’m Maura Johnston, and I’ll be running things around here from now on. You can reach me here with tips, pitches, and ideas. Many thanks to Rob Harvilla and Zach Baron and Camille Dodero for the hard work that made this blog really great, and extra thanks to Camille for the rope-showing these past few days.)
We’ll be back Monday.
