Ryley Walker
It's a good record. But I can't really listen to it anymore. It kind of broke my brain. It took a year, and there were a lot of times I thought it was going nowhere, a lot of botched sessions. It was all my fault, no one else's. I was just totally unprepared. I went in with over-confidence, I went in there like ‘Yeah, I'm ready to go!' but I was just kind of bullshitting. I went in expecting to make a fucking masterpiece, but I kept hitting a brick wall.
I was under a lot of stress because I was trying to make an anti-folk record and I was having trouble doing it. I wanted to make something deep-fried and more me-sounding. I didn't want to be jammy acoustic guy anymore. I just wanted to make something weird and far-out that came from the heart finally. I was always trying to make something like this I guess, trying to catch up with my imagination. And I think I succeeded in that way - it's got some weird instrumentation on there, and some surreal far-out words.

And it's more Chicago-y sounding. Chicago sounds like a train constantly coming towards you but never arriving. That's the sound I hear, all the time, ringing in my ears. Everybody here's always hustling. Everybody who talks to you on the street's always got something they're coming at you with. It's the sound of strangers dodging one another. And landlords knocking on doors to get rent that people don't have. But it's eerily quiet at night. This record is the sound of walking home late at night through Chicago in the middle of winter and being half-creeped out, scared someone's going to punch you in the back of the head, and half in the most tranquil state you've been in all day, enjoying the quiet and this faint wind, and buses going by on all-night routes. That's the sound to tune in to. That's the sound of Chicago to me.
