It’s not like any of you read this.
Anyway, Hoping For A Little More…Pizzazz will be out on Repeating Cloud on July 22. When that date gets closer, I will write and publish an “era review” for that (and Origin and whatever else may get released before the album drop). This will contain MANY juicy nuggets about the 14 songs that grace my new album.
Now may also be a good time to acknowledge that I’m already working on the follow-up. It’s currently titled In The No and it’s almost certainly going to be very long. Whether it’s CD-length like my other two best albums (Wood Anniversary and Atlantic Witchcraft) or somehow even longer, the goal is for it to be a force of nature.
Pizzazz is, to my ears, a continuation and culmination of what Hello Whirled has veen about. Standard-fare indie rock mixed with bursts of post-hardcore? Sure. That’s not entirely accurate, but you get the picture I’m trying to paint. In The No won’t be that, I hope, but that’s for another day.
Anyway, Pizzazz. It’s really good. There’s a song on it called “Cheerleader” that everyone who’s heard it (myself included) thinks is the best song I’ve ever written. It’s already out, so if you’re reading this, LISTEN TO IT. MAKE “CHEERLEADER” THE HIT IT DESERVES TO BE.
