Here's Looking at Us, Kids: Coastal Elites Notice Daniel Pujol and William Tyler

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 3:43 PM

First up, WFMU's Beware of the Blog interviews Lambchopper/Silver Jewish/KORT jester/Paper Hat-parader William Tyler, aka Willy T, and he talks about recording with David Berman and being the young guy:

We tracked "Bright Flight" in a basement studio in Nashville over just a few days, all live, barely any overdubs, straight to two inch tape. I have fond memories of frequenting local burger haunts with Tim Barnes and being the designated driver most evenings for David and Marky (Nevers). I feel like this is precisely the kind of album David moved to Nashville to make: old school and no nonsense, with accompaniment that manages to embellish while still being sympathetic.

Second up, Free Williamsburg interviews PUJOL-ja boy/Wizard/Meemaw-sopher Daniel Pujol. They ask him about working with Jack White on that fancy new 7-inch, to which he responds:

It was a good learning experience. Yeah, I think he’s a good artist with a solid sense of self, narrative, and aesthetic. I think he’s hit the nail on the head in regards to making art in the tradition of American indigenous culture, that is now infused with advanced capitalist and media culture, so technically, I suppose I could understand myself as a fan of that.

Wait, indigenous huh? Well, at least we're getting known for stuff other than the stuff we're usually known for. Keep it up, other places!
