Comments from Alex Thomas Hanson

Yeah, it's kind of like how I always make sure to fart in my car right before I get out. Just in case somebody steals it while I'm shopping at Home Depot.

March 11, 2015 on Kanye West – “Awesome”
A big reason why I like this song is because it reminds me that the Ghostbusters theme exists.

If some of these returntorootsfolksongs have a bit of noisy electric guitar flourishes in them (a la Pickerel Lake), I'll be a happy camper.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like "Santeria" builds to something even more Sublime, than "Santaria" does.

Eeeeeh. I was at this show. There was quite a bit of cat calling/"look how funny I am" type-things being shouted in between songs, and I'm pretty sure the gang around this camera was involved. At one point, SVE just said "Uhhh...help?" to her bandmates. I mean, she took it all in stride, but it was preeeetttaaay annoooooying.

I don't really think he's "jumping the shark". The past Christmas records have all had little rambling 1-take tunes like this. Maybe the song doesn't warrant a post, but it's another listen from a goofyfun set of new songs.

I'd like to see him take on a clarinet cover of Muzzle of Bees

I was right next to the person filming this, just behind the pit. It was an incredible show, I couldn't have handpicked two artists I'd rather see collaborate. Really cool to see them perform on each other's material with all that brass. Aaaaaand they had a theremin battle during Northern Lights.
