Luke Wilson Why do I love this album? Because I wish I didn't have to. I wish it wasn't relevant, or necessary. The world is an absolute garbage pit, and AJJ makes things just a tiny bit better. Favorite track: Normalization Blues.

Kate I'm a huge AJJ fan, their releases are what I look forward to above all else-- but when this album came out, I didn't purchase right away. I streamed it, and I decided that was fine. I decided money was tight. I decided it was good, but not my new favorite. Then 2020 kept happening. And it kept happening. With every listen, the album mattered more and more to me until I couldn't think of anything else to soundtrack the loneliness, the injustice, the shame, the fear, the dread. Love this album. Favorite track: Feedbag.

about

Ben Gallaty and I have pieced together an album that is reflective of our times. It’s pessimistic and sad, with small pockets of love and grace. It’s bitter. And funny. And scary, like a scroll through your endless feed. Showing you everything all at once, whether you were prepared to see it or not. I don’t particularly enjoy writing topical, political songs, but I have no control over what I write. We can only hope that this material will be dated next year and AJJ can move on to worthier subjects. I really hate explaining myself, but since I think it’s important I’ll make the theme of this album explicit: Basic human connection is the path to our collective return to sanity. We are very proud of this one and hope you enjoy it.

-Sean Bonnette
