Now Playing Tracks

why’d you ruin christmas?? (or: @erinmckeown is great)

Last week I came across a holiday songwriting contest and submitted my song ‘Dear Santa’ (aka ‘I Want A Robot For Christmas’) to it, feeling kind of sneakily subversive. Then a few hours later I checked twitter and saw that @erinmckeown had just released a surprise holiday album called ‘F*ck That’. So that gave me a little perspective on what subversiveness really is.

I’m a big fan of Erin’s and I recommend checking out the new album and her back catalogue too!

last week, i put out a new album. maybe you’ve had a chance to hear it by now.

i conceived, wrote, recorded, and marketed it in about 4 months. it felt urgent because we are fast approaching my least favorite time of the year: christmas.

beginning with thanksgiving and ending on new year’s eve, i am pretty much miserable. why? you might ask, because for most people it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

fuck that!
