Rochester Campus Times Interview

"It was not nice – it wasn’t like the friendly, happy Paul Bunyon. It was really a bad thing.  It was scaring the crap out of me, and I was running through the woods trying to find a place that I could hide from this menacing lumberjack. I had told Alan about that dream, and it was on my mind when I was working out that particular tune. It’s in this banjo-inspired tuning from double C, you know, “C G C G C C”. It’s very drone-y. It’s more or less thinking about that bad dream."

Democrat and Chronicle Interview


"It hasn't been above zero degrees in weeks," he says. "When it's 27 degrees below zero, you can actually see the air hanging around, because it's frozen. When it's 27 below zero, you can sit down and die."
