There aren’t too many songs I would consider perfect.

Young Glass
Hey Rosetta!


As they look for God in those ivory halls, you can see her on the porch, listening to the radio, singing that wanderer’s song: Even though I thought I was all alone, I was wrong.

Young Glass
Hey Rosetta!

“Young Glass is a letter to a character to from the novel Franny and Zooey. The character Franny. J.D. Salinger is one of my all time favourites. So amazing. So this is a song to her. I found that book really, really, affecting. Really good. I really liked her character. I’m sure the book –- that character — is in everybody quite a bit. So I thought there were a few Franny Glasses out there to write to.

This one was a bit magical, the way it came together. I couldn’t find the chorus for a long time and it came to me when I was out in the night. I was staying at my brother’s apartment in Halifax, and went for a run because I was working on this. It was one in the morning and I was super frustrated with it.

In the book there was this character, named Seymour, that everyone kind of worships a little. Their brother Seymour is dead. He committed suicide, but he was this genius who nursed everyone into these intelligent, amazing people. Anyway, I was running down Seymour Street when it came to me. I stopped and was like, “that’s it, man!””

Still so fucking pissed that they were here but fuck whatever. 

I’m absolutely livid that Hey Rosetta! was in Los Angeles Frebruary 20th and I didn’t even know about it. 

Why. Just…. Why. 

Yer Fall
Hey Rosetta!

my love, my love is dead i buried it
in the falling leaves, looking awful green, in the whipping wind

my love, my love is dead i buried it
and it’s better hid, all the shit we sling into the whipping wind

my love, my love is dead i buried it
just an honest kid, i always did everything they said

my love, my love is dead i buried it
what a senseless thing! this heart in shreds in the whipping wind!
