“Thirty Foot Snake” listed on WXRT Local Anesthetic’s best albums of 2014

Richard Milne was kind enough to invite us on his show Local Anesthetic last year when we released our second album “Thirty Foot Snake.” Roughly a year later he placed it on his list of top albums from 2014.

I remember when Richard asked us to come on the show last year I was just thrilled. We were just starting out and it felt like a huge validation in what were were doing. Like, this weird shit I am compelled to do, someone else likes it, too.

When I first started in 2012 I didn’t care if anyone “got it.” But what changes over the years is it actually feels much better when you find people through your music than when you turn them away. I try not to think about this too much when it comes to songwriting though.¬†When we interviewed on WXRT I ended up meeting a really cool guy later who has been one of our biggest fans. He heard us on the show and we shared a connection.

So when we got listed as one of the top albums for 2014 it makes me think of where we were a year ago and how I felt then compared to how I feel now. We’re a year older and working on our best work to date. It feels great and I’m looking forward to 2015.
