My Love is Like Alaska

My friend Jeremy knows how to write songs. He gets distracted by remixing reggae dance tracks and making watches, but if he was more bohemian (or arrogant) he could have been somebody you've heard of.

He is releasing his double album, Divider/Destroyer, next week at Cause Soundbar. It's a departure from what he had mostly done in the past. Luckily, last month, he also released the North ep, which sounds more like what he usually does, whatever that means. Under all that reverb and (gasp!) auto tuning, there are beautifully mature songs that most songwriters could only dream about. Except for maybe that club version of "The Scientist".

Rosie Thomas Says It Best

It isn't melodrama when it's true, right? "I'm still in love, why aren't you?"
