CityBeat: In this era of social media and the Internet, music seems far less mysterious than it used to be. You can now download music instantly, find myriad photos of a performer and watch clips of them on YouTube at the click of the mouse, follow their daily movements via Twitter and so on. You used to have to work harder as a listener, used to have to use your imagination more. That said, you seem to, despite being a pretty well-known figure on the contemporary music landscape, still have an air of mystery about you. Can you talk about this topic and how you approach it (but do so without completely demystifying yourself)?
Annie Clark: I have gotten more Twitter friendly. I’m not sure I’m the right person to know why I seem mysterious. I’m just a suburban-middle-class-American weirdo.
