Do the evolution.

Only a month until Sleater-Kinney's The Woods hits the shelves of your local file-sharing service. But songs are already appearing on discerning radio stations everwhere. Yup, all three of them. Check out "Jumpers" on this recent BBC broadcast - it comes in about an hour and 39 minutes into the show.

And while we have been largely apathetic about Pearl Jam's music ("less catchy than your average hymn," S. Malkmus once quipped), we've always considered Eddie Vedder to be a thoroughly decent and compelling individual. As it happens, Eddie interviews the ladies of Sleater-Kinney for this month's issue of indie-rock glossy Magnet. Can't find a copy at your newsstand? Some kind soul transcribed the entire exchange. (Fetching cover graphics not included.) Learn how Eddie and Corin felt being booed after talking smack about Bush in front of stadium crowds in the heartland; the difference between surfing with the guitar and surf guitar; how The Woods literally shredded Eddie's car speakers; dude vs. lady bands; and yes much more.
