about

This EP is dedicated to the radical genius DC Berman. David was the brilliant songwriter behind Silver Jews and Purple Mountains, and a titanic figure and huge mentor in my own life. We started corresponding in 2004, we traded ideas, he gave me tons of titles for songs, taught me crazy writing hacks. We sent each other music, pro wrestler photos, and postcards.

One of those simply said: John, I can't believe civilization is still going here in 2008! Congratulations to all of us, Love, DCB

We loved each other. His death fucked me up.

This is a love letter to David and an anti-suicide pact with myself.
