Morning Bites: Mitchell S. Jackson Interviewed, EMA, Rebecca Mead on Bookstores, Big Ears Festival Report, and More


A very happy birthday to the great Samuel R. Delany, who turns 72 today.

Mitchell S. Jackson was interviewed at The Rumpus.

The time Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks were joined by Spiral Stairs for “Stereo.”

Reporting from this year’s Big Ears Festival, where the music of Television, Steve Reich, and Body/Head (among many others) could be heard.

Rebecca Mead’s essay “Lost Illusions at the Local Bookstore” is fantastic.

If you’d like to hear EMA’s new album The Future’s Void, NPR can help.

Josh Spilker has thoughts on who should be in the forthcoming alt lit anthology 40 Likely to Die Before 40.
