the industriuos Deals: bye bye 4AD, and hello self-release. Fate to Fatal, their new limited edition EP, on April 21 (with a Record Store Day pre-release). It's D.I.Y.: from contracting with the vinyl pressing plants to hand-screening the covers. Can't hardly wait.
a poem by Chris Nealon:
(I know prose ... )
I know prose is a mighty instrument but still I feel that plein-air lyric need
to capture horses moving
Surplus of capital; economy tanks; you get called a faggot more
On red seats all around me children learn abstraction and heckle each
other in affordable new media
“This cold world we’re in is full of fresh champagne”
Un snack sólo para mi
When I was a child I thought, In Homeric fashion I will speak to each of
you in turn while laying you low
Now I stick to fragments transmissible, perdurable and the
crossword beauty you can make from them
To all the young Apollos: I’m aiming for the intersection of your swagger
and your ashes
Not that I don’t get it: looking eagerly offends the lords of scarcity
But check those dactyls, fabulous
It’s just too hard to live as though there weren’t some other kind of
To the masters of prose: Greetings!
I will die before I worship your god
