I fucked up in 2016. I didn't think he could win. I knew our country was a mess, but I didn't know how bad it was, or how bad it would get. This election, I'm doing all I can to help dig us out and get us back towards something like sanity and democracy. I love it when music can be a part of that.
These two songs are dealing with the reality of what's happened, and hoping that we can make some better things happen. Big love to Jake Snider for the wiry guitar on Departure, Ian Prince for the staggering drums on the same, and to Jeremy for workin with me on everything else and puttin it all together. As for this version of hell of a Year, so happy that Dana Gumbiner & Ski Taylor, my longtime Sacto friends lit it up so beautifully. Thanks also to Brad Gunnarson for the gorgeous art.
It's all for sale sliding scale (pay more if you can, use LITTLESLIDE or SUPAHSLIDE at checkout to pay less). Click here to get it. All the money is going to close races, voter outreach, supporting poll workers, and protecting the results if it comes to that. Thanks forever.
Also, here's a strange lyric vid for Departure. It started with some neat street art, and came alive with a filter that replaces pics of Dump with cats.
Enjoy it all. Fight as hard as you can, love as hard as you can.
