Calvin Comes Down From the Mountain

K Recs founder and Beat Happening leader Calvin Johnson was interviewed in his local Olympia WA newspaper - he tries his best to be real boring (and succeeds)

Johnson's second solo album, which he expects to release "probably in August or September or something," will feature the K Records founder working with a lot of his labelmates, including Khaela Maricich and Mirah.

"Working with a producer, I was very open to their concepts of arranging and producing," Johnson said. "It's been a lot of fun collaborating with these really creative people."

But what about his creativity? Does the album have a particular style? What's it about?

"There's a bunch more songs that I have," he said. "There's not consciously 'Let's do an album about architecture.' I just have some songs and put them together."
