“When [Clark] was playing, I was thinking that this is almost too easy,” Newman says. “When you’re trying to figure out a great guitar solo, all you have to do is call her up and she’ll show up and do it. I definitely feel lucky that way, on top of just everybody in the group. We’ve got a singer [Case] who had a number three record last year. It all seems kind of absurd sometimes.”
I want Annie Clark to write a guitar solo for everything I do. Like, "Oh, hey Annie? Yeah, I'm writing a blog post about Taylor Swift dropping her Grammy--could you do me a solid and soundtrack that shit with a solo? I'm thinking Mark Knopfler meets Thurston Moore meets Joe Walsh."
Anyway, we're still waiting, impatiently, for the first single from the album. Matador? A little help?
