A.V. Club Newswire: Steve Albini says a new Shellac LP is done

I’ve been doing a lot of stuff lately. I went and covered Kazoo! Fest in Guelph for Exclaim! and did something similar for Lawnya Vawnya in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Last week I went to Chicago to hang out with Fucked Up at Electrical Audio where they started work on their new LP (more to come on that shortly). We went to Wrigley Field and watched the Cubs beat the Padres. I also spoke to Steve Albini about the new Shellac LP and wrote about it for The A.V. Club. It was my first post for them but hopefully I’ll do more.
