I noticed you write about the trans community and gender issues in your songs sometimes. I was wondering if you or someone you know is? Just wanna know your inspiration behind it. Sorry if it's too intrusive.

a lot of people in my life struggle with gender issues, as well as myself. but they’re only “issues” because we live in the context of a society where a gender binary is widely accepted. i’m not a man or a woman, i’m a person with a penis and a lot of other thoughts and feelings that don’t feel pinned down to any category, so i generally explain myself as genderqueer or gender neutral. pronouns aren’t really a big deal to me (he/him is what i habitually respond to though). i look like a boy most of the time, and presenting that way creates a lot of privilege in my life. so i would consider myself primarily as an ally to the trans-community, rather than someone who is a real resource for experiences in or advice about trans issues.

how do i become popular and rich enough to tour and eat decent food and get talked to by fancy journalists??? do i go electric, write happier music, or do i start pretending like i’m hip with all these trendy emo revival bands???

what is/who is your favorite band/artist outside of the acoustic/folk punk genre?

regina spektor was on repeat all throughout highschool. pavement, at the drive-in, rilo kiley, and modest mouse were too. there are so many artists. it’s hard to pick favorites outside of folk punk.
