Iron And Wine holds tight to its newly acquired position at No. 1 with Deerhoof and Cut Copy, the long-running No. 1 at RPM, gnashing at its heels.

The past two weeks have been relatively quiet in Chart Land. The only mover and shaker on the genre charts is Chicago-based Kurt Elling; he’s ousting Joe Lovano Us Five and conquering Jazz with his Concord-released The Gate.

Included in this issue are interviews with our cover DJ and dream-maker Daedelus as well as shadow-shrouded dupstep pioneer and Hyperdub founder Kode9, raspy-voiced Alison Mosshart of the Kills and the Dead Weather, Peanut Butter Wolf protégé James Pants, the potentially NSFW hip-hop-sampling punks the Death Set, Swedish electronic outfit Little Dragon and the laughabout Tim Heidecker of Heidecker And Wood and Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job!.
