I’m New Here
Look, I found this satisfying combination of words. I want to share it.
I feel like Smog was a different time; I was different people. And who can feel tethered to a line that long and old? It’s more natural to me to think in the form of trilogies. That’s about as far back as I can go in my catalogue and still have an inkling of who I was then and what I was doing. Anything further back than that becomes awkward teenage photos.
Dream River is the last record you could listen to at the end of the day, before you go to bed, around midnight. I wanted it to be smooth and relaxing, the perfect end to a person’s day.
I recently went to see Bill Callahan perform in Santa Barbara for the second time. It is always very meaningful getting to see him up close and in person because of how significant Bill’s music has been to me in my life. I consider myself lucky for having shook is hand. I was really excited to get a Bill Callahan bumper sticker, it was on my car immediately after the show - 2 weeks later sadly, my car was totaled in a hit and run while parked on a street.
