  1. ʼn Gesprek Met Danie Marais – Ep. 56 WAT Podcast – William Welfare

    Danie Marais is ’n bekroonde digter, rubriekskrywer, vryskutjoernalis, radio-omroeper en net ’n plain likeable cool dude met oorgenoeg useful information en quotes oor pop culture. Hy kom riff in die garage oor sy kinderdae, hoe die platebiblioteek en sy neefs op De Doorns se musiekvoorkere sy identiteit beïnvloed het en hoe sy stint en eerste huwelik in Duitsland die pas aangegee het om sy debuutbundel In Die Buitenste Ruimte die lig te laat sien.

  4. SXSW 2009: The Decemberists

    The Decemberists perform Hazards Of Love in its entirety:

    "Fans of the beloved Portland, Ore., rock group The Decemberists already know the band for its outsized ambition. Frontman Colin Meloy’s blend of sweeping melodies and hyperliterate, deliberately anachronistic references won the group major indie-pop laurels — and, as of its last album, the attention of a major label. But The Decemberists’ newest project promises new heights of bombast: Its new record, The Hazards of Love, is a sprawling 17-part narrative song-cycle."
