Jay Reatard

When Jay Reatard made the video for the first single, “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me”, off his forthcoming album I believe he was somehow looking directly into my dreams.  Clowns, Birthday Parties, Top Hats, angry children; its my Freudian nightmare played out in real-time.  I don’t know what it says about Mr. Reatard, nor do I want to know what it says about myself, but if you the need, its okay to cry.  At least the soundtrack is better than my dreams; I’m usually stuck with a backing track of Toto.

Watch Me Fall is out on August 18th via Matador Records
