Artist Interviews Bowerbirds

Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina, Bowerbirds released their third full-length album, The Clearing, on Dead Oceans in March of 2012. CHIRP DJ Dylan Peterson had the pleasure of hanging out with the entire band after their performance at Lollapalooza.

In this exclusive CHIRP interview the band reflects on their place in the nu-folk canon, Beth and Phil’s on-again, off-again, on-again relationship, and how accidentally adopting a dog affected their outlook on life.

Split Reel The “War on Terror” and Popular Culture

What were the “flash points” which signified the “War on Terror” was having a concrete impact on popular culture? If the Hollywood norm over the past decade has been to showcase films that highlight the failures of American policy rather than champion it… then how does this fit within the framework of rah-rah patriotism that erupted in the wake of 9/11? And what sort of impact will the new strain of anti-government movements have in the wake of the Obama White House administration?

My guests are Andrew Schopp and Matthew B. Hill, co-editors of the recent book The War on Terror and American Popular Culture: September 11 and Beyond.
