q: What is your favorite venue in NYC (if applicable)?
a: I really liked the Bell House.
q: OK, President Obama appoints you as the first Secretary of Culture, to whom do you give your first grant?
a: Myself, got to get a better home for my kid and some Health Insurance.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
a: I’ve got a new full-length coming in a few months. It was recorded in the wood-shack behind my house so I had more room to do real instruments… the end result is a less electronic sounding LP than Seek Magic. People seem to think everything I do is all samples but that’s not how I work. I’m excited for it to finally come out.
