Matt Pond, as part of his Pledge Music campaign, is giving away a free album via Noisetrade, Skeletons and Friends. His new album, The State of Gold, is due this summer. It's always a treat to see him and speak with him, so be sure to catch him out on the road celebrating the 10th anniversary of of Emblems. (Talk to him about the Coen Brothers if you see him. He loves that. )
In less interesting news, Silence is Overrated--this here blog you're reading--is back after a year-long hiatus. New platform (Squarespace), new look (not really), and some other new metaphors that I can't really think of right now. He's a bulleted list of what's happened since you've been gone:
-My 33 1/3 book proposal for The National, Alligator was rejected. So I'll be posting some of it here.
Not much has changed, so welcome back and thanks for reading.
