Weekend linkdump/Podcast update.

This weekend is full of adventure. Well, actually, just more writing and recording. And secret eating. But here's a tiny spread of that wide ol' web for your amusement:

Dual Onion A.V. Club action: an e-mail interview with *hipster* funnyman Demetri Martin, and, rarer than a sasquatch sighting, a chat with Maynard James Keenan. You no doubt already read them both. Savvy.

The New Yorker's Sasha Frere-Jones is the Galahad of music criticism. Here are his thoughts on Joanna Newsom's new album.

Speaking of crit snits — say hello to your new music poll daddy. As expected, The Village Voice is not pleased.

Should I go to Seattle (that's where grunge lives) to give a presentation? I could offer my quasi-informed, borderline obnoxious opinions about music. Kind of like this blog, but with complimentary pretzels.

Deep Soda have some rough mixes of tunes from their forthcoming album. Set your Rock Phasers to "spazz."

Tanner unveils a new podcast over at Highgate.

In other podcast news, we've decided to host "The Contrarian's Corner" right here on Solidstate. No more extra mouse clicks or dead links — just me, a bottle of vino and a Journey to the Center of the Mind. You can find the first two episodes under "Podcasts" in the categories field to your right. A new edition will arrive very soon.
