Honestly, I feel my music writing ability has matured a lot within the last year. More so than it has in the last 20 years of my being alive. This album has a lot more political songs that I actually like ("Gentrify My Heart," "The Last Palistinians Alive," "We Are The Dirt") so that makes me happy, but I also couldn't help but write some 'fallen out of love' songs ("I Ain't The One, Babe," "The Stranger") because they're interesting and a lot of fun to mess around with. There's a philosophical song ("The Stranger") that I wrote after reading "An Essay on Liberation' and some pages on beauty and truth, the problems with the status quo and love. And of course, The Mountain Goats is my biggest influence.
Album art is a temporary placeholder, but it was taken by Haley Pinney.
