Ben Gibbard and Mark Kozelek Share Their E-Mail Conversations

These old friends make their correspondence public.

Last November, Ben Gibbard and Mark Kozelek published The Thread, a small series of e-mails between the two, discussing things like the California life and San Francisco.

The frontmen have done it again by publishing another thread where each musician touches on life on a tour bus, Gibbard being too shy to meet the late Elliott Smith, and music they’re currently jamming to.

Check out some of the exchange below, and see the full one here.
