There’s a Q&A with M Ward in Time Magazine (here) wherein Matt mentions the now legendary M Ward / Conor Oberst / Jim James project that’s been kicked around since the trio did that show at Witherspoon Hall in January 2004 — five years ago. It’ll be another year until the actual recordings are released (my guess is it’ll be on Merge). It’s hard to believe it’s been almost six years since I did this interview with Ward. Time has indeed flown by. Of course one drawback to being associated with Conor and Mike Mogis is that Pitchfork will only give you a fair-to-middling review, as they did today for Ward’s new album Hold Time (here). It got a rating of 6.7 — in the same ballpark as all Saddle Creek releases.

Someone posted on the ol’ webboard that Ladyfinger will be performing live in the studio on Z-92 tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. CT. More details here (I didn’t know that Todd & Tyler listened to rock music). Watch for my feature interview with Ladyfinger tomorrow on Lazy-i.
