The Infinite Wisdom of David Berman

We’re a little late getting to this, but earlier in the week, Pitchfork ran this terrific interview with the elusive and reclusive David Berman, lead singer of the Silver Jews and current Nashville resident. As Mr. Berman is hardly your typical rock god (and a god he is, to some of us), the interview is hardly typical either, ranging the topics of home ownership, relationships, health insurance, songwriting and, well, American history. We’re glad for the reminder of his awesomeness; it’s spurred us on to pick up the Silver Jews latest record, Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea, recently released on Drag City.
