Songs from Any Port in a Storm:
Do you still feel like you're faking it when you're in Brooklyn now? Do you think you're going to stay?
In the beginning I felt all over the place—partying way too hard, doing weird jobs, and just trying to make it appear like I had it all together. I've got a bit more of a handle on the place now. I'm going to Melbourne in December for their summer, and then I'll return to New York in April. Then who knows? I love New York and don't see an end to my time there yet.
Everything you picked can be loosely described as "lo-fi indie-rock guitar music," which sort of fits in nicely with this lyric: "I haven't done much changing in what I love since 1993." Clearly, there are a lot of bands making this sort of music right now, but do you think this sort of thing is cursed to be thought of as "retro" going forward?
I don't think this kind music cursed by retro labels. Styles come in and out of fashion all the time and I never notice. If they are good songs they'll get recognition no matter what kind of labels they get.
Out of curiosity, was this song inspired by an actual leg-wound?
Yeah, my leg looked gross for ages!
