I love xiu xiu & I read devotedly & unfailingly William Bower's Puritan Blister installments on Pitchfork. #44 is provocative & poignant. Please read it and if you care to share, send me some lines about the column.

I'm enjoying the time off. finished Bolano's Savage Detectives. Wrote some. Grilled. The headphones clamp into my consciousness
  1. Xiu Xiu: Knife Play
  2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs: It's Blitz
  3. Jason Lyttle: Yours Truly, The Commuter
  4. Andrew Bird: Andrew Bird & the Mysterious Production of Eggs
  5. Deerhunter: Rainwater Cassette Exchange.
It feels silly, another idiotic instance of individuality, to list what I'm listening to. I would love one day to have John Cage's ears. maybe his beard too.
