short post (because I've been working all afternoon/evening and I'm calling it quits):
Pitchfork Interview w/ Colin Meloy
He talks a LOT about what the new album will be like, and I'm SO EXCITED. Also, I won't miss Petra--she was fine on the album and her violin work is great, but I do NOT like hearing her sing live with Colin. Too strident a sound.
And thanks, Pitchfork, for heeding my cry about the sex of Colin's child (it's a boy, Henry--or Hank, apparantly. Cute).
