Electric Literature shared an excerpt from Kelli Jo Ford's novel Crooked Hallelujah.

Pitchfork profiled the band Dehd.

The group’s outsized, theatrical backstory runs counter to the lean contours of their music: an effortless, elegantly rumpled strain of indie rock with a light touch, ample reverb, and killer vocal harmonies, variously evoking the Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500, vintage garage rock, and ’60s girl groups. The new album builds on their electrifying spirit of dejection, grappling with the push-and-pull of modern romance in songs shot through with longing.
