...OK, not really. But Dallas-bred singer-songwriter Annie Clark does make that joke in this lengthy New York Times Magazine piece about (inset epic reverberating voice-over) "The Return of the One-Man Band!"

The piece, written by John Wray for yesterday's NYT Mag, uses namely three artists--Final Fantasy, Panda Bear and Clark's St. Vincent--to prove the point that the one-man band has returned to popularity. Clark's contribution, essentially, is to say that the Internet Age and the advancement of computer technology has allowed artists to "maximize" their sound.

In other news, the Times sure lurves them some DFW right about now, huh? Well, we think you're pretty OK, too, New York. And, hey, since we're all tight and stuff now, take care of Marcus, for us, k? Thanks! TTYL! --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
