Stop right there: we have the latest installments of
Brian Staker’s interview series, this time featuring Wayne Coyne and Built To Spill holding
forth at this summer’s Pitchfork Festival.

Rockers say the darndest things, especially when they’re
looking into the lens of Brian Staker, host of the aptly-titled podcast
“The Awkward Hour,” in which Staker takes the often-spoofed (see Tim
& Eric, Bob Odenkirk) model of awkward, unprepared interviewers and well,
runs with it in the “be who you are” spirit. 

Earlier this month, Blurt sent our schlubby bundle of nerves to the
Pitchfork Festival for special on-the-spot interviews where he cornered artists
for on-the-spot (and we do mean on-the-spot) interviews. Today we’ve added Built
To Spill
and a lengthy two-parter featuring Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.
They join our previous list of victims: Vivian Girls, Jesus Lizard’s David Yow and The Thermals. Just head over to our
