So I’m using Soundcloud now as a place to put my music. That way it’s easier for people to listen to and share about and stuff if that’s a thing they chose to do. Here’s a tracks from the 'B-Sides' EP I released last week.
There is a chance that I’m developing a perfectly justified guy-crush on Dan Mangan. And when I say “chance” I’m talking about the kind of chances where the odds are at 100% likelihood. I don’t know if that makes mathematical sense. But there is no room for sense when it comes to matters like this (I think. Or at least that’s what the movies and some crappy sentimental posters I’ve seen have told me about emotions and feelings and that kind of thing.). Just stop reading this and listen to the song, OK?
Where does the quote on Out of Here come from? I can't find anything about Mae Kaufman or The Trouble With Glory anywhere on the interwebs.
That. That is a good question. I hadn’t thought far enough ahead about whether I might actually get asked by people, but it’s a fake quote. I mean it’s real (obviously) because you can read it, but there is no The Trouble With Glory or Mae Kaufman (well, there might be, but I made this one up). So I wrote it. I had thought for a while about what I’d want to use as album art, and I’m not any good at drawing or painting or photography or anything visually artistic like that, but I figured that I seem to be pretending I can do the words at the moment, so I thought that might be the answer. I thought about some of the stuff that had been written about in the songs and did a weird backwards thing where I wrote a fake quote as though the songs had been influenced by this passage as opposed to the other way around. But then when I was writing one of the songs that ended up being a bonus track a further weird thing happened where the fake quote ended up influencing it. To summarise, it was weird.
