For some people, myself included, sad songs make them happy, and the Everybodyfields embodied every note of that spirit. I lapped up every drop of melancholy on their 3rd LP, Nothing is Okay,but then (everything was not okay and) they broke up.
Jill Andrews whipped up a solid break-up EP right off the bat, but former partner Sam Quinn wallowed in the split a bit longer, releasing his new solo LP, The Fake That Sunk 1,000 Ships, this spring (May 11) via Ramseur Records.
If you’re having a good time, you’re probably not doing something right. A happy song can lift you up for three-and-a-half minutes but sad song can make you feel bad a lot longer. It’s real stuff I was going through, a real bad year in my life so I just wanted to hash it out and get over it. It’s real – it’s not about hopping trains or coal mining or making liquor.
As I’ve never made liquor, hopped a train, or mined coal, this appears to be my kind of record. Check out the tracklist below and/or watch Quinn perform the opening track here.
