Links and such

-- longtime friend of MTX Ed Masley says "Cinthya (with a Y)" is one of "15 songs you need to hear right now. I became aware of "Gwladys" by means of P. G. Wodehouse. It all checks out.

-- Sweet blurb from Stereogum, by Tom Breihan who once called King Dork the "best punk rock book ever" (in the Village Voice) a quote I will recycle continually till the end of my days, no doubt.

-- I linked below but here it is again: Paper Mag premiered the "Cinthya" video with a write-up by Alex Scordelis.

-- Here's a long interview I did in a San Francisco cafe with Brian Heater for the RIYL podcast. "In this extra long edition of RiYL, the artist discusses motel laundry, the publishing industry and not being Green day."

-- Chris Fabulous played "Cinthya (with a Y)" on the Weekend Quality podcast. Thanks, Chris.

-- Some of it won't be functional till the Oct. 4 release date, but if you want to see the virtual album art and credits, you can go to the KDATA download page and click "Artwork & Credits".
