    Favorite Soundtracks

    In terms of more orchestral scores, anything that Jon Brion has ever put his hands on is pure gold-- Eternal Sunshine, I Heart Huckabees, Punch Drunk Love... and most recently Lady Bird

    What are you listening to?

    I would definitely give this a listen too: https://courtneybarnett.bandcamp.com/album/the-double-ep-a-sea-of-split-peas -- Avant Gardner, if you haven't heard it, is an honest to goodness classic. (This was all pre-first-album material.)

    What are you listening to?

    Was coming here to see if anyone else was listening to this! It's definitely my favorite new release of the year. I've seen her live a handful of times and I feel like she just keeps getting better. Such great rock and roll!

    BK RSD 2018 Release

    A friend of mine in Dayton, Ohio was told by his local record store guy today that "he might be getting a few more copies in" -- so my hope is renewed that I won't have to turn to scalpers. Maybe a bkmiracle will occur. @Christopherthat's wild! The things people do for records, I guess. I'm glad she was alright (and that the Sha Sha copy was still there).

    BK RSD 2018 Release

    Yes! This! I went to multiple stores yesterday with no luck. All I want is to own one of the key albums to my life's soundtrack. Is that too much to ask?

    BK 2018 Tour

    I moved to San Francisco a few months ago, so I could promise you no one but a totally thrilled me. If you were doing a midwest tour I promise ya I could wrangle at least 50 people personally for a Columbus, OH meet up. (Cbus loves themselves some Kweller) Columbus Venues Ace of Cups (200ish capacity--cool and dark and a little grimy) Wexner Center (technically an art museum but also hosts shows-- I've seen wilco, tuneyards, and the mountain goats there) SF Venues The Chapel Swedish American Music Hall

    Favorite BK Memories

    SO many good BK memories, but my favorite happened circa 2011 in Columbus, Ohio. I had lost the tickets to his sold-out show, so my (then) boyfriend went to the venue to see if he could squeeze us in on the guestlist. Ben told him all his spots were filled but asked if he could give him a ride to the grocery store. The two of them picked me up from my house, and we ensued on a multi-store trip hanging out, debating various kinds of nut milk, finding blank cds, and an under-aged me buying the tour crew a 6 pack of bud light lime. Once we returned with the grocery haul, we got to chill on the bus and got snuck into the show. I still have the setlist from this show framed in my room. Truly an amazing day.

    Getting to know you

    1) Favorite Ben Kweller song? I feel like this constantly changes....Penny on the Train Track 2) Favorite member of the Beatles? George. The dearest soul-- plus if you compare first solo albums All Things Must Pass wins by a landslide 3) Favorite Electric Light Orchestra song? Turn to Stone. What a pump up jam! 4) Pinkerton or Blue Album? I love them both so desperately, but Blue Album just wins. THE HOOKS ARE UNDENIABLE. 5) West Coast or East Coast rap? East Coast, but only because Illmatic sways it so heavily 6) Favorite Ninja Turtle? Michaelangelo, but for the pizza
  22. Totally with you! Ben Kweller is generally my intro-album. I spent several years working in a cute boutique in Ohio where I was often in charge of making the playlists. I snuck in a LOT of Kweller jams, but especially tracks off self-titled. I would just WATCH the customers get happier when they’d hear Run or I’ve Gotta Move or any of those sunshiney tracks— and would often get asked what would playing.
  23. I have so much love every single album, it feels insane to choose! I voted Sha Sha, because it has been the soundtrack to my life and heart for so many years, but I feel like I’m turning my back on all the other beautiful babies Some of My Fav Highlights on Every Other Album: Freak Out its- That OG Version of Walk On Me is engrained as a part of me On My Way- The RIGHTEOUS pre chorus into the hook in I Need You Back The *feels* in My Apartment
 Ben Kweller- Let’s be clear, this is an empirically perfect album, so it’s difficult to pick any singular moment— the flow, the songs, everything. It forever reminds me of summertime bike rides and being madly in love The structure of Run The pure love of Sundress The euphoria in “OF SOMETHING GOOD, OF SOMETHING GREAT” in Penny on a Train track Changing Horses- Sawdust Man sounds like it could be a Harry Nielsen song. That jangly piano, the song structure…it’s all brilliant. Go Fly A Kite— Jealous Girl’s perfect pop melody THOSE HARMONIES IN GOSSIP. I’ll never get over them. Thanks for all the years of rad jams, Kwells. It’s so wonderful to see you back in the world again
