Life in the bourgeois cybertopia of Startup City is making me a little
anxious. People will have you believe my hometown is under siege, is fighting
change. That this is an occupy moment. People getting evicted and laying down in
front of buses. I can kind of relate. I feel like I've been duct taped back
together so many times I don't know what I'm a part of anymore. Almost as
if I'm from a scene that never really existed.

I don't want to come off as against everything; you need to be for
something too. I try to avoid pining for those halcyon days that never really

So yeah, a new record. It's got it's own groove and even some prog rock
chops here and there. In fact, James DePrato turned me on to some really great
(if marginal) classic rock. Like Argent. (Argent?) And he plied me with some
extraordinary Australian Glam mix tapes, the upshot of all of which are guitars
that are in your face. Up your nose. They snake and harmonize. They jangle too,
thanks in no small part to special guest Peter Buck on most songs.

There are a lot of little stories on this record. But they seem to add up to
one big story. What that overarching story is, I am not really sure, but I'll
know it when it punches me in the face. It's loosely conceptual but universal
all the same, I'd contend. And of course, you'll find it laced with humor
and a persistent anxiety throughout. And while I had originally considered all
