in september 2011 i put out a record called Bodysongs that was kind of the culmination of a few years of dancing in my various bedrooms, and also touring around with some of my best friends in a defiant act of total economic irresponsibility.
lately, probably because of the fun music i’m making at this very moment (more on that later), i’ve developed a bit of a nostalgia for this period, and a renewed appreciation for the album.
my job, fundamentally, is to make you feel good, to make you feel like you can do anything, and then to complicate that emotion so it doesn’t bloom into escapism. i’ve veered off the path of that task, or even completely subverted it in different ways over the years, but my ultimate destination is still completely in focus, don’t make any mistake
i just uploaded Bodysongs to youtube for safe-keeping. if you choose to revisit it, try to couple it with some dancing, some laughing, some swimming. we’re here after all.
