Comments from Timothy Butler

a remake of the movie Falling Down but in this version Michael Douglas is set off by reading yet another throwaway dismissal of First Impressions of Earth

Kraft Dunk'd is not his name, his name is Kraft Punk. Get your Eric Andre canon straight Stereogum

Here's what I have to say about "Bagels in Kiev" and "The Burglars" being relegated to b-side status: I disagree.

Song is lame and tracklist looks even worse, but I have hope. EWBAITE was very good. Please Rivers. Pull it off.

Kingsbury's got a real "Please kill me" vibe going on in this video

Listen to their second album that came out last year, 'The Night is Young'. Incredible pop album. I was surprised that it was ignored by basically everyone.

props to Stereogum for the great continued coverage of Tobias. This was a great interview. The fact that there were 40+ demos lying around on Youtube at one point makes my head hurt in a good way. Also very nice to hear the story behind True Love staying off the record!

If you watch the video they're actually playing a hybrid version of You Only Live Once and I'll Try Anything Once. So cool.

"...he was nervous that he opens the album with his ex-girlfriend’s name (Mary Ann) and expects to hear from her about it." 'I Can't Stop Thinking About You' is Track 1! My favorite demo. Awesome.

First song in 2014 that's lived up to my own ridiculous hype. Most anticipated album of 2015. I love that his producers are expanding the songs, not cutting them down. The demo was two minutes shorter! Those punching drums! THOSE HORNS. I wonder if this is the closing track...

I cannot wait, honestly. This guy has absolutely captivated me since the first moment I heard him, since then I've gathered everything I can by him. I just got the third demo ('Hollywood', mentioned in the P4K article) yesterday in the mail. My expectations are so unreasonably high for this LP.

That's my video!! I would have taken a longer one but I was basically standing at their feet, so it felt kind of awkward. Incredible, incredible show. They played three new songs.

I listen to it almost every night before I go to sleep. When I get in bed I'm usually onto disc 2, and when you lower the volume to just the right amount it creates an incredible effect, you only hear certain tones and notes. I also just walk around town at night moping a lot, and Rhubarb, Lichen and Stone in Focus are all time greats for that particular activity.
