Athens Music News Roundup

of Montreal‘s Kevin Barnes did an AMA on Reddit the other day. It’s not the most gripping thing but there’s some gems in there if you care to dig through. If you want a good write up on of Montreal, try to track down a physical copy of Nylon Guy’s Magazine. Our buddy Gordon Lamb wrote a feature in the latest issue.

Speaking of Gordon, please make sure to mark your calendars for this week’s ATHENS INTENSIFIED. In the interest of full disclosure, I’m working a bit during those nights. The Gold Party was just added to the lineup for Friday so get yerself over to the site and snatch up those tickets before they’re gone.

Peter Buck opened up to Salon about Tired Pony, post-R.E.M. life and his dislike of interviews. I still firmly believe that most professional music writers are R.E.M. fans and David does a great job of getting to the point quickly.

Speaking of the post-R.E.M. life, Mike Mills has been busy with the Baseball Project. Also, he was apparently recording with The Old Ceremony.

Back to Elephant Six news. Laura Carter did a great interview here, mostly about Elf Power.

Fred Schneider of the B-52s has narrated a children’s book called “Sassafrass Jones.” It is adorable. Now if only we could get John Bell to narrate Pete the Cat….
