Okay, I know I promised to stop reading Pitchfork, but I had a relapse. Surely I can remain untainted so long as I confine myself to their news section and don't delve into the actual reviews? Or mabye I can spin this as a public service -- "Darcy reads Pitchfork so you don't have to." Yeah, that's the ticket...
Anyway, the Hipster News Network brings word of the new Calexico record. Lots of interesting stuff there, but this bit from the final paragraph caught my eye:
"I really want to tour with Broken Social Scene," Burns said. "I love the fact that there's this kind of element of chaos where neither the band nor the audience knows exactly what's going to happen."
Due respect to Sam Beam, but that -- that is a double-bill I could get excited about.
[Also, this one -- surely Neko's planning a tour with Burns, Convertino & co?]
