Catching Up with Everest's Russell Pollard

22 November 2012 6:00 AM, PST

Going into the recording of their third full-length album, La-based rockers Everest found themselves in an interesting place—out of a major label contract with Warner Brothers, and into a deal with indie stronghold Ato. The transition was one that frontman Russell Pollard says gave the band increased freedom in the studio, a spontaneity you can hear on the loose, live-feeling Ownerless, which the band released on June 26. Everest teamed up with Rob Schnapf (AA Bondy, Tokyo Police Club) and Richard Swift (Damien Jurado, The Mynabirds) for the album, recording the tracks in a smoky clubhouse next door to a »

The Dust Bowl

19 November 2012 7:17 PM, PST

It’s probably not unfair to make the claim that most people who choose to watch a Ken Burns documentary know exactly what to expect going in: Uniquely American subject, “How’d they find that?” archival footage, talking heads both academic and first-person witness, masterful photography and editing, all in service to a solid (if uncontroversial) thesis. The Dust Bowl, Burns’ unsurprisingly exceptional 22nd feature, doesn’t stray from his well-established model. But, really, why the hell should it? »
