Hell With(out) You

July 16, 2008


William Miller: Do you have to be depressed to write a sad song? Do you have to be in love to write a love song? Is a song better when it really happened to you? Like “Love Thing,” where did you write that and who was it about?
Russell Hammond: When did you get so professional?

It’s no “Dream Scream” by either means – better than Daniel Johnston’s (not saying much, no offense to him of course), and worse than Death Cab For Cutie’s (says a decent amount, but it’s probably their best work at the same time). Which, the song is loosely based on.

Maybe I need to give it time. Let my voice rest.  But there, art.  In its rawest form.
