Honored that RJ Smith, a music critic I respect a lot, asked by Music Tomes to recommend some books on music, said, “I think the poetry of Michael Robbins (Alien vs. Predator) is pretty great music criticism.”

New Yorkers, I’m reading on Thursday (8/23) at Culturefix, 7pm, with Ariana Reines, Justin Taylor, Melissa Broder, Miles Klee, Marci Blackman, & Jami Attenberg. Deets.

The reading is sponsored by Vol. 1 Brooklyn, whose deputy editor, Jen Vafidis, has a nice tumblr you should follow. I like her.

Unwound’s Leaves Turn inside You is a really good record.
