You can only talk so fast, it’s impossible not to look like you’re going to throw up. You’re never going to be able to do the kind of thing you can do down at the beach or on the lake, which is just the music, the voices, the sounds. You’re just so lost at the moment, it’s really a lonely trip for everybody on the ship… It comes down to being able to play some music. You can’t play very far out from the shore, but you can do it far out at sea if you get your guitar out in a band. When we started out in college, I was the drummer, and Steve was in the bass. They started playing the most amazing bands of their time, and those were those bands you could really get out to the lake and the beach and the beach in the evenings. They would play with such a feeling of peace and fun and joy in their songs. It was really kind of a breakthrough in music for us!
But then, when we were starting to start to put out a record, we knew at that time that this band would sound kind of like the kind of thing we used to play in. So we decided that we were going to get out of that, and try a different style. And that’s how we ended up playing music that’s kind of more on the experimental side, and kind of being like bands we used to play in. We still like to play music, and when we started to have different kinds of songs, like a new song on the album, that was one of the things that kind of inspired us, because we didn’t have the same songwriting that we did when we were younger. We started to write songs that were kind of more laid-back… Like we had some tracks where we had just done a few chords before, and then a couple chords after, just trying to play in my head something that sounded like a piece of music I’d really heard when we were doing some acoustic gigs in college. That was kind of the inspiration for that. It was interesting… It’s something that I’m going to try to do more of in the future, too. I just don’t know if we can pull it off. But you can just tell how good these songs are when you’ve heard it with a band or without. [Laughs.] It’s fun when you feel like you’re the first ones to hear it. You just never expect that to happen. It’s an art form in itself to
