Don’t tell me when to go and stop.

Like every week I’m tasked with writing one of these bad boys, I ask myself: what was exciting this week?

We watched Barbarian on Halloween, which was rad. We saw The Who at the Hollywood Bowl, which was beyond rad. 

As if things couldn’t get any more exhilarating: “aloud” was yesterday’s Wordle.

I don’t play the game myself—I can only assume it’s like Candy Crush for people who dig Scrabble—but regardless, the messages and texts throughout yesterday warmed my heart. I’m a fan of words, and of you. 🙂

…And, right, we’ve got new music arriving in less than a week.

The Comeback Kid arrives on Friday

Digital word games aside: the beginning is nigh! The first single off our next album drops next Friday.

We’re going to be sharing a ton of stuff all next week like some behind the scenes clips and a live rooftop performance.

If you can’t wait that long: Buzzbands LA was kind enough to post video of us playing “The Comeback Kid” at last week’s Harvard and Stone gig, which you can watch here:

If you’re of the Spotify persuasion, you can pre-save “The Comeback Kid” here.

Personally, I think it should just be called “saving”—cue George Carlin bit about “pre-boarding” vs. “boarding”—but regardless, head over here and hit the pre-save button if you want to make sure it ends up in your music library the day it’s released:

Feel free to share that link with your friends, too. It really helps us out!

Of course, the single will be available on Bandcamp on the 11th. 

Because you’re awesome and a part of our burgeoning email community, we’ll send a free download link your way on the day.

Show next Friday

After all the drama over the summer, our show at the Goldfish is finally happening next Friday 11/11.

We’ll be performing with our pals Harry Katz & the Pistachios (who’s releasing an album that evening), and joined by The Dreamboats and Tom Kenny & the High Seas

Tickets are highly recommended:

That’s all that’s fit to print today.

See y’all next week.


PS: I picked up Tamara Shopsin’s novel LaserWriter II last week on a whim. Delightful read… reminds me a lot of Invisible Ink or Einstein’s Dreams. Books are cool, man.
