The Dad Rock Edition

So since our news and politics podcast is going OK (by which I mean people I don't know have told me they listen), Times Entertainment editor Robert Bell and I have decided to take the podcast plunge into the world of pop culture with, of course, an Arkansas focus. We're calling it Ear Candy, and likely from our second show going forward, we'll record and release on Wednesdays.

This week, we talk about the Oxford American's imminent move to the old Juanita's space and whether indie rock has become our generation's adult alternative. And I endorse the movie "Bellflower" and Robert thumbs-up the band War on Drugs.

Links to things we talked about on the jump.

Also, I called the OA non-profit the Oxford American Literacy Project when it is, in fact (of course) the Oxford American Literary Project.


"Oxford American signs lease on old Juanita's space"

"The Oxford American expands beyond print"

Nitush Abebe's dad rock screed: "Indie Grown-Ups"

Carl Wilson's take "Reluctantly Feist"

Robert's preview of "Bellflower" and the trailer. Out on DVD on Tuesday.

The War on Drugs.
