yes, i’m a witch
The Yoko Ono remix compilation Yes, I’m a Witch is one of 2007’s pleasant surprises, with strong contributions from Jason Pierce, Antony, Cat Power, and the Apples in Stereo. Just before album’s release we spoke to Yoko Ono about the project.
Pitchfork: So, I’ve spent quite a bit of time with Yes, I’m a Witch.
Yoko Ono: Oh good. I think it’s fantastic, because right now I’m into indie music. I think indie is going to bring back the spirit in music. There was a time when it was all about accommodating the music business, the music was getting tasteless, but now, the spirit is back. It’s a very difficult time with the social climate today, difficult and heavy, and so, you know, we’re thinking: OK, we need to bring back the spirit. It’s great.
