Here is the set list for the show last night, which could actually be a bunch of pictures of dead goats for all I know, as I haven't clicked it yet. I'm waiting for the element of surprise when I see them in March. Let me know if the link works without spoiling everything for me? That'd be great.
Then there's this interview, which is entirely in Spanish. As a regrettably monolingual individual, I am unable to read this. If anyone wants to translate, that'd certainly be a welcome favor, but I doubt anyone really does.
The Montreal Mirror interviewed him as well, and jokingly asserts that "Everything Is One Big Christmas Tree" might be the most personal song on Realism. I don't know if they see exactly how right they probably are in this regard.
But my favorite of today's interviews comes from The Line of Best Fit. More than any interview since perhaps the one in the 69 Love Songs booklet, it features Mr. Merritt expounding upon his work process and dissecting exactly what he thinks of his musical style(s). Kudos to the interview's author, Mr. Sebastian Reynolds.
The above picture was taken at last night's show in Washington DC and is but one of several, the whole gamut of which can be seen at this link. I, for one, am certainly intrigued by the instrumental changes, and by Mr. Davol's hair.
