Julia Brown
“ I listened to the new Julia Brown album on the plane back to Chicago: ‘I KNOW SOMETIMES I CANT LEAVE MY BED I KNOW IVE SAID IT AGAIN AND AGAIN IVE TRIED TO MAKE A DEAL WITH GOD I JUST WANT A BETTER LIFE FOR MY MOM’

They’re the most capital letters I’ve heard in forever and they’re not screaming against wealth or war or any of the political structures that bothered everybody from the Ramones to Cobain. They’re screaming against the vague ubiquitous feeling that everyone here who is young doesn’t deserve to exist because we didn’t follow rules that shattered right in front of our eyes. ”

This world could have been so many things and so could I

is this resignation right?

Don’t show my teeth, don’t call that phone

a mechanical fantasy come to life

bright pink, again and again

riding his bike in the rain

long coat flowing out behind him

and you sing

"i think i’ll move back to the country"

well you won’t, you’ll get a job at the mall

and maybe i won’t get a job at all

i like to think it could bring me back

if i lie facedown on the couch for long enough

spaced out, pumped full of dilaudid again

i could still feel as much as i like to think i used to feel then

but in truth i never felt that much

and it’s just the first twenty five or so spring days of the year

that bring me back there now

and then it’s gone

this past weekend we got to play a couple songs in our backyard & for one of them we covered mat’s ‘her sinking sun’, which we decided to play that morning & spent all afternoon practicing so we could do this. our bud jeff from wish list fills in on “percussion” aka banging a can with johns car keys in it while waiting for a ride home. jeff also made all of our teen suicide shirts & the orchid tape shirts too (one of which he’s wearing) his band rocks and they’re putting out a really great album soon. filming this was a really great and amazing experience that made me feel really good about music & generally a lot of things. i also saw a really big spider. well have a couple other vids up i think at some point too. thanks so much to rachel for filming these.

i wrote two songs yesterday and this is one of them. it’s one of my favorites this year/ever. it’s weird as hell. it’s deeply (probably too) personal but i don’t believe in earnestness, only sincerity, a deep rooted fatalism, and offhanded quippy-ness really. so it’s got that maybe. no artist name no release nothing. thanks to spencer from blithe field for letting me sample the hell out of his songs to help make it. along with bogdan raczynski, cassie, and cat power too for that matter i guess, though they won’t hear it most likely lol.

thanks. the other song is going to come out in july. goodbye for a bit.
