Oh, and I’ve somehow completely neglected to mention the fake dogs that are literally all over the place. I don’t know if “owning more than one fake dog sculpture” is in the DSM, but they update that thing all the time, right?

This business of being human is basically a jalopy ride over potholes, which is why it’s so important to ride with the best people you know, wherever possible, and to make sure you take note of any particularly beautiful scenery.

Episode #3 of our new podcast, “For The Record,” in which we discuss Bleeding Rainbow’s “Interrupt,” is now available here.
In each 20-ish-minute-long episode, we pick one recent album to discuss in depth and play some selections from. Episodes 1 and 2 can be found here. I hope you like it! Any (constructive) feedback would be welcome.

In 2001, Harvey Danger’s Sean Nelson asked his friend John Roderick if he wanted to make an album. The result was The Long Winters, three brilliant albums, and a near-religious cult following. Last year, they celebrated the ten-year anniversary of pop masterpiece When I Pretend to Fall with a series of sold-out shows. Roderick reflected on his slow-burn success, less “rock star” and more like “running a thriving dental practice.” John and Sean join us for a special duet show. (Photo by David Lee).

XOXO Music 2014 will feature Sean Nelson & John Roderick!
