* Interesting Will Oldham interview which mostly focuses on the recording process. [via twinkle twinkle blah blah]

excerpt:

"JDK: What was it like recording with Johnny Cash?

BPB: It was uh. (Pauses for a long moment.) An inspiration. It was SO cool because it was so much more exciting than I had expected it to be, which is a rare occurrence. I didn't have a lot of expectations, but I didn't expect it to be such an involved and invigorating day.

JDK: Are you a bourbon drinker?

BPB Uh huh.

JDK: What kind of bourbon do you like?

BPB: My favorite bourbon...What have we been drinking lately? WL Weller is what I've had mostly in the last six months. Overall my all-time favorite is just Maker's Mark.

JDK: I had Van Winkle the other day, which

BPB: Yeah, that's really good.

JDK: You have to plan your schedule accordingly, though, you drink it and wake up a hundred years later.

BPB: Right exactly. Old Rip Van Winkle. I used to drink Evan Williams a lot. Probably because it was inexpensive, but I thought it was delicious as well. I always feel like Maker's Mark is the standard, it's the benchmark, in terms of not being too rarefied, and it's delicious, and it makes you feel good."
