You Are What You Pretend To Be

I pretend to be a musician. I pretend to be a songwriter. I’m hoping if I pretend hard enough then one day it will be true.

I’m going to release an album this fall. Thanks to the hard drive failure I suffered a few weeks ago (fuck you very much, HP) it will not exactly be the album I had planned on releasing but it will be close.

Here’s what it will look like:


Here’s the track listing:

  1. The Meanest Thing I’ll Ever Write
  2. Dogs at the Door
  3. Redemption on Pearl
  4. The Interrogator (enhanced)
  5. A Jerk’s Lament
  6. Dogs at the Café
  7. My Fear of Losing You
  8. The Whole
  9. Babies to War
  10. Pitseleh

It’s not done yet. I would like to get it mastered so that I don’t blow anyone’s speakers. I also need to license that last song for release since I didn’t write it. Both of those things cost no small amount of money so I am investigating financing options. Option 1 involves being discovered by a Capitol Records executive who just happens to be vacationing with his family in Burlington and really needs a quick coffee so he stops into this little shop called Radio Bean (Kesha told him about it) and sees an enchanting performer in a suit… Option 2 would be some sort of crowd-funding project.

Yeah, I think option 2 is probably more likely too… stay tuned. There’s a lot of really hard pretending in my future.
