Happy Halloween. Here’s an acoustic version of ‘Halloween’.
Along with many of our most recent efforts, we made most of the Threeep in the sideways light of a drafty cabin in Bearsville, NY.
Dan on the drums and whiskey, Chris and I arguing about Antonioni, Michael Bay. We were trying to compose a soundtrack to our fleeting minds.
Over runaway thoughts, we conceived it as a follow-up to the Freeep. (A free EP that was commandeered by our label and subsequently titled Aura Sacra Fames. Or, For the Love of Gold)
The Threeep was supposed to come out as 3 singles with 3 songs a piece. The gatefolds were made to have interlocking pieces that would click into a cube.
I honestly don’t know what anyone would’ve done with a slightly psychedelic seven inch cube. Pardon.
Between then and now, plans unravel. Which is also the title of the memoir I continuously compose in my sleep.
There is the world I know. And another world I don’t know.
In the world I know, I love to noisily plod through my days and write music. I tend to do so alongside Chris Hansen, the truest friend known to man.
I’m attached to the pulsing nature of our world. The strange magic of shadows, wolves and women. But I’m also kept at arm’s length. Or brain’s length.
Those unshakable glances and forces of attraction/repulsion are what I’m trying to capture with my life of cabin songs. (or hotel songs. or bathroom songs. or backseat songs)
In the world I don’t know, money and virtual blather cloud up the windshield and make it impossible to avoid colliding with the oncoming trees.
From this point onward, I’m sticking to the world I know. Therefore, if anything goes wrong from here on out, you are entitled to blame it all squarely on me.

#Supporting Jimmy Eat World
After the fifteen hour drive to Shreveport, last night was the first proper sleep I’ve had in weeks.
There was a lifetime in that ride. I could feel my beard growing and I repeatedly blinded myself by tracing the sun.
