Picking Up Crumbs: Owl City

25 Sep

OwlCity_AdamYoung

Apparently Owatonna has a great city sewer system. This is what I learned from e-mailing with Adam Young, a.k.a. Owl City, and God bless him, it seems like he puts it to good use. Young brings his RomCom trailer background pop to the Cabooze on Saturday, and since he just blew up right in front of all of us, all the weeklies felt like they needed to cover this “homecoming”. City Pages did it, Riemenschneider did it, and I did it for The A.V. Club. (At least we refrained from making a “Hoot” pun.) Young insisted that interviews be over the internet, which judging from the amount of useable (and/or factually verifiable) information contained in these three pieces, means we writers all seemed to have similar experiences with that.

I would just leave this with two little internet nuggets, the first is a question that did not fully make it into the piece I wrote for AVC, the second is a tweet from Rob Harvilla, writer for the Village Voice who wrote a generally positive review of Young’s show at the Bowery that I desperately wanted to include in the piece. But that’s the wonder of the world wide web, that we can all have our say, and say it as many times as we like….

1)Do you find that live performance is a challenge for you? Do you have any rituals or have you developed some coping mechanisms before a live show?

Performing live is like playing one-on-one against Shaquille O’Neal. Before every show, I gather a dozen maple leaves from a healthy tree outside the venue, slather then in reverb and put them on my egg salad sandwich.

…OK. And…

2) OWL CITY I’MMA LET YOU FINISH BUT POSTAL SERVICE IS THE BEST SAD BASTARD ELECTRONICA BAND OF ALL TIME

Bless.
