Chick Habit - April March
I sometimes think it might be better for my sanity and emotional well-being as a musician to not read almost any music press at all. I try really hard not to compare myself to anyone and I know I’m not doing any of this with some goal of Making It Big. But I can’t help but seethe with a mixture of rage, jealousy and frustration that someone like Karen O can put out a collection of 14 songs that sound like she recorded each one after rolling over in bed, brushing the sick out of the corners of her mouth and warbling into a tape recorder from 1987 whilst clumsily strumming a guitar and it’s advertised, lionized and gif-ized all over the web. But then I know I’ll be at band practice tomorrow night making noise with my bandmates and feeling like we’re flying under our very own power. Sigh.
