Gwyneth Paltrow Makes Chicken Goop.com with Abby Elliott (via)
so last night we went to see brendan benson play the first show of his tour supporting his new album. he didn't seem so ready. he was nervous and kept wondering why everything was moving so fast. one guy booed when brendan started and stopped his first song and explained he hadn't played any shows yet except for one mini one in nashville. this dude in the crowd booed and brendan was like, "fuck you man booing nashville. that's music city. what the fuck. get out of here. why don't you go blog? go blog your boos." i laughed, but i don't really like that insult. his album is streaming on npr. and this article on brendan in the independent is good. "There's a big distinction between being a fan of music, and making it. It's frustrating and sad sometimes, listening to something so good and so beautiful, and thinking, 'I want to write a song like this'. But writing music's more like being seized or possessed, and being asked what a song's about afterwards is like remembering a dream. And sometimes, it's just a song."
the single uprising is on muse's new album that will be out on september 14. the album will probably be ridiculous.
