Sneaking into Pitchfork

So I know this dobbs guy via Metafilter, and he’s doing a blog-a-thon this weekend at his site, Wrestle the Future to the Fucking Ground.

And as part of that 24 blog-fest-for-charity, he’s posting unreleased tracks from a variety of artists. Including Robert Pollard, from Guided By Voices. And also including me.

But don’t take my word for it. Read this write-up at Pitchfork Media.

Oh hell yes.

I spent a couple nights this week getting the track in question recorded and re-recorded. I had just written it on Tuesday, so the turn-around has been pretty frantic. It’s called A Man in a Boat in the Water, and I’ll get a proper link up at some point. In the mean time, check out dobbs’ site, particularly on Saturday—he’ll be starting at 9 in the a.m. and updating pretty much constantly for 24 hours straight—and some point he’ll unveil the track.

So the server on which is running has been, apparently, compromised, which is technical jargon for totally h4x0r3d, and so we’re doing backups and tearing it down and rebuilding it. That will probably be bumpy, so pardon me if I’m out of commission for a few days.
