Quick note: Pitchfork has the first of its Bjork interviews up. Apparently the sound of Volta is marching, so maybe good for the dancers... tonight I will edit this post with an amazing new mix of Pagan Poetry that turns it into slamming dancepop.
There is a fantastic quote from Bjork that I so needed to hear, given the bullshit of recent news:

We're all fucking animals, so let's just make some universal tribal beat. We're pagan. Let's just march.
